Ones a Browning, the other is an icon.

I think it's more complicated than that. there are the pre64s, then the early push feed post64's, then the later push feed XTRs, then the 90's Classic CRFs, and finally the the early 2000s models when New Haven was headed south.

And then you have the early BACOs made in Carolina, and the later BACOs assembled in Portugal.

The South Carolina guns were pretty darn nice. I had a stainless walnut featherweight of course I let it go at some point. Think about that gun quite a bit.

The icon should have came with one piece bottom metal.

Fit and finish on a pair of Carolina featherweights is as good as I've seen on any production rifle.

I have models from every period and the specially made JOCs bacos are the best.

How does it shoot? Some of those were copper fouling sob's. Give me a good pre 64 and I'd take that any day and twice on sunday over that Browning.. And to be honest, JOC probably would too..

Mule; depends upon your purpose, wants.

If you're looking for a true short action then the 5 or 6 digit New Haven classics are your huckleberry. They are a true short action length as opposed to the P64 is which were all long action.

If you're looking for one rifle to hunt everything I would go with the P64, there is a reason it achieved legendary status.

If I were outfitting a friend, or starting ovet today I would find a nice shooter grade P64 in 30-06, bed in a good McMillan or similar and as our friend Dober used to say, "go fill an ark".

Bob would agree, although he would probably choose the 270.

The P64s ottom metal is a hindrance. Said no one ever.

I got a Joc. To me, it's the best model 70 winchester ever produced. My barrel grabs little copper, shoots 130s and 150s inside an inch and weighs under 8 pounds scoped. Fit an finished is unmatched. Baco for me.

Both my Carolina Featherweight BACOS, a 7-08 and a 257 Roberts Shot Show Special, shoot .75 - 1.00".

And, boy, are the pretty....
