need winchester help

i have a model 670A Winchester in a 243 caliber
i am looking to mount a scope on this rifle and i need to buy the bases. would like a one piece mount. I can find one?? is the 670A the same as the 670? and will the ones for the model 70 work?

somebody has got to know this?

As far as I know the 670 was just a cheaper version of the model 70: blind mag, birch stock, no glossy finish. A model 70 base should fit.

Re: need winchester help

Midway offers mounts for 670. I think they're weaver mounts.
If I'm not mistaken, short action/wsm (not wssm) model 70 mounts fit. I could be wrong tho.
Sorry I wasn't more help

Re: need winchester help

i also think this is a long action because you load it from the top so if it was a short action you could not get a loaded round into the box? the opening is 3" is this correct thinking?

Re: need winchester help

I had a 670A, it had the same action as the Model 70 except for finish and blind mag. And no shroud over the cocking piece. They all had the same length long action, as the Model 70. The shorter rounds were accommodated by changing the length of the bolt stop and a spacer in the magazine.
