I'm also a huge Winchester M70 fan.
The new M70's are very nice but the trigger is a dog. Lots of folks not able to get them down to the 3lbs. I do have one that will though and it still feels very heavy. The trigger has zero creep but again it's heavy and is very sensitive to finger placement. I feel a very different weight of pull with even very minute changes in finger placement.
My other new M70 I'm sure is somewhere around the 4lb mark. I don't have a scale.
If they had only left perfect alone. My other M70 with the original trigger is sweeeeet after a $30 trigger job. I've already had one of the New triggers smithed down and yes it's significantly better but not as good as an original and I'm out $60.
If you plan on buying one please go to Timney and request the trigger. I need two of them.
