This is a walnut BIRCH stocked, iron and scoped .223 Rem bolt action rifle based on the 700 action, so you can do everything to it as if it's a 700 BDL, etc. This was made for a few years to compete with the Win 770, which was a similar no frills walnut stocked Model 70.

I have fired about 100 rounds in testing after thorough cleaning and it does the typical 1 MOA with Walmart Rem FMJ's. I ran some generic handloads through it, used a random mid pressure load with quality 55 gr HPBT's and it did 3/4 inch and better at times. Trigger is very heavy (6+ lbs) lending itself to limit group performance. Its in nice shape (stock 90%, blu 95%), has sundry scope (Tasco 3-9x32 about same age as gun, in great shape and very clear, Tasco Japan I believe), end bell of scope has small dent in it (I didn't do it!). Stock has typical bench handling marks/safe marks, certainly not perfect but not trash either. Typical hunted gun. Bore is in FINE shape, has been copper removed (prior to the 100 rounds) using Sweets, followed by JB Bore Paste. Gun operates very well. 24 inch tube.
