    winchester 70 usmc replica project

    hi
    i decided last month to build a winchester 70 usmc replica
    the action will be 2012 "pre 64 " look alike, the stock a sporter model
    this rifle is totally unknown in france, so it's quite difficult to get some informations about it...
    i wondered if someone here could give me some details like winchester and douglas barrel dimensions, as i'll order a custom one to lothar walther or bergara.
    i'd need informations too concerning scope and front sight blocks, and where i could find parts for this project
    actually, any informations would be welcome
    many thanks....and take care
    nicolas

    hi
    actually i did a lot of research on google and various forums...but i didn't find the genuine winchester and douglas barrel contour
    i need them to order the new barrel...
    then, i have to find an unertl specialist as i'd need a base screw , which tightens the scope on its blocks..
    impossible to find something about this rifle in france...
    cheers
    nicolas

    Factory Winchester pre 64 Model 70 30-06 target barrel is 1.140"x2.000"(includes breech thread) straight taper to .780" @ 24" finished length. 1 in 10 twist.
    I was going to build a replica several years ago but in my search for a suitable action I happened across this "original" example for less than it would've cost to build the wanna be.

    wow...great ....you're really lucky
    so, those dimensions are the genuine winchester target barrel contour...
    it seems that douglas ones are looking a bit heavier ...aren't they?
