You have the varmint model 70, simple as that. The police and varmint model used the same stocks, and came in 223, 22-250, 220 swift and 308, the police came in 223 and 308 only.

Re: Model 70 heavy barrel info needed

Thank you for that info. What is the difference if any between the Varmint and the Police model? I'm planning to use this gun as a 300 to 500 yard deer rifle. Any suggestions as to recomended stocks or other mods would be appreciated.
