Thank You ButterBean , this is my old Winchester model 70 chambered in 223 Rem . . It's a right hand bolt but I shoot it left handed and work the bolt with my right hand that way I can stay on the rifle and not raise my head to chamber another round . I'm left handed any way . We have traveled a lot of miles together and killed more then just time .
Good looking rifles. My calling AR is a DPMS Prairie Panther which I think is pretty much the same gun. Mine is in Mossy Oak Brush and I had a few upgrades done. I had the barrel lapped for better accuracy and a 2lb trigger put in at the local gunsmith. Both helped it to shoot well. It's still picky on ammo but what it likes shoots really well.
