Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways
In my opinion they are miles apart in quality.
I like the mod 70 action but Winchester barrels and stock are not very good.
The 9 lug Mark 5 action is one of the best factory actions and there barrels are very good(Some
are Kriegers). And there stocks are the best factory fit and finish. The catch is that they are more expensive.
There are no gaurentees as to the accuracy of any factory rifles, but the ods favor the Mark 5.
Just my opinion on factory rifles.
