i have a winchester model 70-270. pulling the lever back from fire to safe, it's kind of "stiff". is this normal? i believe i like the remington safety better. easy, and a big red dot!.... thanks for the comments. scott.
I had a Mod 70 black shadow in 7mm Rem Mag but money got tight and I was forced to sell it. I still wish I didnt, I loved that gun but I will agree that the safty was stif on it and that my Remington's is way better and crisper. Plus I think that Remington makes a better Rifle but thats my opinion.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
