    Just a quickie. Are the barrel threads/size etc the same on all of the versions of the model 70? Specifically will the barrel of a 300wm from a push feed action thread into the modern or 90's version of the pre 64 action with the addition of an extractor cut out for the claw extractor?

    Good question, I wouldn't think so due to the extractor cut.

    THe extractor cut can be made on any thread pitch/count. The barrels are threaded, installed, indicated and marked and then removed so the extractor cut can be made so the only question is are the threads the same count and pitch.

    1"x16 tpi is the standard tenon on m70 actions with the exception on some of the newer models....supposedly they are 20tpi, although I haven't run across one of those yet.

    The vast majority of Model 70s, 1939 to 2010 are one inch and 14 pitch.

    I own a 2008 "Coyote Lite" that is metric and a 2012 Classic which is also metric.

    I suspect the new plant which claim to be ISO 9000 certified will have more and more parts metric. I would not put it past them to import barrels from Miroku to put on their Model 70 receivers. The customer may actually gain accuracy in this case.
