Model 70 Super Grade Wins The 2009-2010 "Guns and Shooting Online" Rifle Award.
It is a huge honor for the Model 70 Super Grade to win the 2009-2010 "Guns and Shooting Online" Rifle Award. Chuck Hawks, Owner and Managing Editor of Guns and Shooting Online made the announcement to Winchester Repeating Arms late last year. Hawk's team of editors has become the source of some of the most extensive information ever on firearms, with huge databases of articles, reviews and information on hunting -- as well as detailed information on nearly every Winchester in the current line and guns built historically.
The timeless Winchester Model 70 returned in 2008, but could not be delivered until midway through 2009. Chuck Hawks said, “Kudos to Winchester [Repeating Arms] for finding a way to keep the new Model 70 rifle production in the USA. We regard it as the finest Model 70 production rifle ever made.”
The new Model 70 is made in Columbia, South Carolina, at the same manufacturing plant where rifles and machine guns used by America’s Armed Forces around the world are built. They are made to the exact ISO 9001 standard of quality that Uncle Sam insists upon for military firearms.
