Winchester as we have known it has died, production has ceased and there wont be any more. The future of the 70 IS in it's past, and those of us who believe will answer your query every time we pull them out of the closet, gun safe or whatever. I personally own a push-feed factory target rifle in .30/06 and wouldn't trade it in for ANYTHING. The "riflemans rifle" will never be forgotten, many will say never improved upon. The future is in your hands.
