    I am thinking about buying a New Winchester Model 70 30-06 Super Grade. Have any of you purchased one on these new models or had the pleasure of shooting one? How do they compare to the older versions? Would you recommend I wait and purchase a pre 64 or post 64 model instead on the new model? If so why? Thanks, Howard

    As far as the Super Grade, I can't give you any input. I do have a Win Mod 70 in 30-06 that I bought about 10 years ago that was one of the guns when Browning owned the Winchester brand name, but they were still made here, that was built just like the pre-64's with the big claw extractor and controlled feed.

    This was the first batch of rifles when Winchester went back to the pre-64 design. I would be glad to let you check it out at the range if you would like to. PM me if you are interested.

    I am still very interested in more opinions. And lets say not only the Super Grade but other model 70 30-06 too. Thanks, Howard
