Re: Winchester M70 .30 US

Thanks for the reply, Let us know what he has to say about it. Im interested now as I own many Model -70 Winchesters, and want to know what signs to look for and how to correct it

As I understand it from my research online, the safety rides in a notch in the firing pin; occasionally, the firing pin moves too far forward and prevents the safety from being able to rotate. I probably could have fixed it by using a punch through the firing pin hole, but I figured there is bound to be a better way to do it without flattening the front of the firing pin.

NDNorm,
Great looking M70!

Re: Winchester M70 .30 US

Oh ya, way better to consult a smith. You did right. Have you ever taken the bolt apart? I put the safety in midle position, and un-screw the back, just behund the bolt handle. theres a ''button'' you need to press on for your first 2 revolutions, and PRAY you dont bump the dang safety tang to the fire position. Its a real bear to screw it back in with all that tension. Maybe something like a ''burr'' inside the bolt? Wonder what caused it to stick? And so far out? strange.....

Re: Winchester M70 .30 US

No, I have never taken a Model 70's bolt apart. I knew the safety had to be in the center position, but when I couldn't budge it, I decided to pass it to my buddy who has a lot more experience with them. I figured it was either caused by a burr or gummed up from factory oil or something. I've never fired the rifle since it has been a build project between all of my work travels.
