Anyone have or know much about the Winchester mod 70, Coyote Light .243 cal.? I have the opportunity to buy one for $500. been shot 20 times, had the trigger worked on, ( by Dick Williams and the Bolt lapped) no scope, but the Leupold rings and base come with it, plus 100 rds of ammo.. good bad??

Looks like a beautiful rifle. I'm not a fan of Leupold bases. The windage screws in the back take extra time to align and its not likely that you can remove and replace the scope without having to perform another sight-in process. Plus, they can fail and break leaving you SOL (my experience and that of others)

I've never used Leupold rings or bases, I would probably change them as I like a one piece base and use weaver style Burris sig. series rings.. just wondering on the price...seen these online for $900. and up new..

sounds like a very good price to me. He who hesitates is lost! Don't let someone else scoup it up if you want it.

wtf Never pass an opportunity to bash Leupold I guess !!!

I suggest if at all possible shoot the rifle first with some factory ammo and make your decision based upon the outcome.
If it's around a MOA at 100 it's well worth the 500.

IMO Model 70's have a tendency (not bashing them, I like them) to shoot their best after some work and sometimes with a better barrel than they use from the factory.

Oh, it has a 1:10 twist so it will shoot the heavier bullets.

I have one in 22-250 and after cleaning up the trigger it is a fantastic varmint rifle. For $500 I would jump all over it.

chambered, I knew you would be watching so I made sure what I said was factual and not bashing.

By no means am I bashing Leupold, I love their scopes. just can't see the high cost for their rings.. I never heard that about the mod. 70 before, The guy that has it ( of course) says he had it shooting 3/4" groups @ 100 yds..after only shooting 20 rds.. I don't know about that, like you said I like to shoot it my self..He is going to collage and is selling some of his guns..

Glockman55, This sounds like a very good deal. I have a model 70 that I bought in '05. I had the trigger adjusted, and bedded it, and it will shoot 1" to 1 1/2" groups with just about any ammo I use. It has worked well for me. Good Luck.
