Winchester Model 70

The Rifle America Loves.
The most respected bolt-action rifle in the world. The Model 70 remains the All-American rifleman’s rifle. It has always been a rifle for the ages, and today’s new Model 70 is the bolt-action rifle for the future. Experience for yourself the precision, accuracy and unparalleled performance this rifle has to offer.

Triple Zero Advantage
The Model 70’s new M.O.A. Trigger System is the most precise three-lever trigger system in the world. Operating on a simple pivoting lever principle, the trigger mechanism has been completely redesigned to exhibit zero take up, zero creep and zero overtravel. The pull weight ranges from 3 to 5 pounds and is factory-set at 3 3/4 pounds. Because of the enhanced ergonomics, wide smooth triggerpiece and 2:1 mechanical advantage created by the unique design geometry, it actually feels like half that weight. Don’t settle for a lesser trigger design with secondary triggerpiece levers, gimmicks or other novelties. Experience for yourself the M.O.A. accuracy, precision and control that come from the new Model 70 M.O.A. Trigger System.

Zero Take Up
Take up is the distance the triggerpiece travels prior to the sear moving toward release and the shooter feeling resistance. The new Model 70 M.O.A. Trigger System has no take up because the take up spring keeps the triggerpiece in constant contact with the actuator.

Zero Creep
Creep is the perceptible movement of the trigger prior to the release of the firing pin or striker. Creep has a negative influence on accuracy because it adds inconsistency and uncertainty during the trigger pull. This contributes to jerking the trigger and thus adds to the movement of the firearm during firing. The 2:1 mechanical advantage created by the trigger design’s unique geometry is how creep has been virtually eliminated in the new Model 70 M.O.A. Trigger.

Zero OverTravel
Overtravel is the rearward movement of the trigger after the firing pin or striker has been released. It can actually jar the gun away from its intended point of aim and is also very distracting to the shooter. That’s why the new Model 70 M.O.A. Trigger System is set at the factory to have no perceptible overtravel. Where you aim is where you shoot.

Built Right, Built in the USA
The All-American Model 70s are built by American craftsmen in Columbia, South Carolina, at the same state-of-the-art factory as the rifles and machine guns used by America’s Armed Forces to defend freedom around the world. They are made to the exact ISO 9001 standard of quality that Uncle Sam insists upon for military firearms.
