Re: My Winchester model 70 hunting rifle "project"...FINISHED!!!

A so called gunsmith ruined this rifle...drilled a hole through to the chamber while removing a stuck/stripped scope base screw (the front screw)...

ATL Outdoorsmen...Johnson City Tennessee....thats the gunsmith...probably be OK to
CeraKote a pistol or something...the gunsmith himself wasn't such a bad guy...but the store owners were very dishonest, tried to tell me I drilled the damn hole (I would drill a hole through my own testicle before doing that to this rifle)...I only got $150 out of the deal.

Parted the rifle out (what was left of it)...and have a Nosler Custom in 280 Ackley being built as we speak.
