Description: You are bidding on a Winchester Model 70 Safari Express bolt-action rifle in .375 H&H, that is absolutely NIB complete with warranty cards, etc. This is a left-over rifle (one of two) from my dealer inventory (I kept the other for myself), that I've been going through and need to sell... yes, every serious hunter needs one of these, but not two! I've fired the other rifle and it is surprisingly mild... the recoil is comparable to my Model 70 Super Grade in .338... likely due to the 9 lb weight and the design of the straight, classic walnut stock. Honestly, fairly pleasant to shoot offhand... but more thump from a bench from a rifle that is not meant to be a bench rifle.

This is the Safari Express version, with 24" barrel, express iron sights that are designed to take abuse while staying on target, barrel-mounted front sling swivel so your hand doesn't accidentally get chewed up from recoil, and controlled-round feed so that you can absolutely rely on this rifle feeding rounds from the magazine to the chamber even if you're falling backward trying to avoid a charging lion or buffalo. Regardless of the speed of cycling the bolt, the rifle's position or attitude, you are going to get a round into, and then a fired case out of, the chamber. The post-'64 New Haven Model 70 controlled-round feed action is the ultimate evolution of the Mauser design... with the same simple, reliable trigger that made the Model 70's reputation as the premier hunting rifle of the 20th century. I've equipped my personal rifle with Weaver/Picatinny mounts and will run a 1x5 or 1x6 scope with good eye relief... and enjoy the ability to be able to quickly remove it and use iron sights in thick brush against the big bears or in Africa. Note: this thing will also work very well on deer, elk, moose, caribou... any medium and large game on the planet. It has the trajectory of a .30-'06 180gr with about twice the energy... but the big bullets don't need to expand to transfer energy and will kill deer-sized critters quickly without a lot of meat damage, but a Nosler Partition will generally pass completely through a moose, elk, or bear front-to-back ensuring enough damage to provide a quick kill. The .375 H&H will kill anything in Africa from 40 lb small antelope to Cape Buffalo to the largest elephant.

You will not find a NIB unsold Model 70 CRF rifle from the New Haven era... they are as rare as hen's teeth. If you've always wanted one of these but missed out, here's your chance. Buy at the list price and I will ship it free via FedEx Ground to your continental US FFL dealer. I will give a 3-day inspection IF it is not logged out of the receiving dealer's bound books; you must pay return insured shipping for the purchase price and I will only refund the purchase price and not my shipping costs.In short, the rifle is everything I say it is, and if this is what you want you will not find a better example.
