model 70 7stw question

I have a donor gun. Winchester 70, 7RM, no drop floor plate. Will a 7stw fit in the mag well and feed correctly? STW seems long. Input appreciated.

Yes, it will fit. The seven mag is a long action as is the stw. The Winchester action is a fine donor. I am building a rifle on that same action as we speak, and I have a Winchester Custom sharpshooter, based on the same action you are about to use.good luck!
