Model 70 ? for the smiths
A while back I ordered a boyds stock for a buddy who has a model 70 stailess classic in 338 win mag.
100 shots later the stock cracked, stocky's agrreed to replace in since the thumbhole featherweight stocks have been cracking lately.
I requested it be replaced with a classic thumbhole for a model 70 stainless classic, ok it has the bottom metal simular to the 700 except it has 3 screws instead of 2.
The lady at stockys asked if it was a 1 or 2 piece bottom metal, I've never known there was a difference, which do I need? she said the 2 piece was more common and that stock was easily modified for a 1 piece.
So win. model 70 guru's is a model 70 stainless classic 1 or 2 piece drop open bottom metal?
thanks for your time.
