There are a whole bunch of reasons I wish Finn were still with us, and one of them is so he could shoot the Winchester Model 70 Safari Express I've been fooling with these past two weeks. Finn's gun was made in 1948, when Model 70s were of no better than average quality, and frequently much worse than average. (His stock split, and he patched it.) The rifle that I have is one of the best designed, highest-quality guns I've seen come out of a factory. It is made overly strong. There's nothing on it I'd change, or can see how to improve. Winchester says it's the best heavy rifle in the world, and they have a case.
