    This the "latest" Columbia South Carolina manufacture ?

    I'm fighting the temptation to buy one of these. I have no real use for it. I'm just a 70 fan I guess.

    Winchester is not messing about, if the models shipped to dealers are as good as the ones I saw at the show, fit and finish is near perfect.

    Always had a soft spot for winny's, but these are just gorgeous. Gotta have one............ my last 70 was a wicked shooter. (90's CRF) and these are just top shelf.

    my new Winchester Featherweight .270win is flawless, it shoots as good as it looks, mind you i have only put a half a box through it so far, but i sure like the feel in my hands.

    Sure hope the FN versions are better than the one I bought some years ago. They were evidently on a cost cutting tear and I bought a rifle that had been bedded with "HOT GLUE". If you have ever used hot glue you know that it doesn't get really hard. So what I and many others ended up with was a rifle that allowed the action to sort of wiggle around in the stock. It never would shoot into less than about 3-4 inches at 100 and I almost sold it. Finally took it down and gave a hard look at what they did. Dug the glue out of it, installed pillars, and properly bedded the action. It now stays inside 1 1/2 inches no mater what it's fed. Sincerely hope FN never tries to save money on the bedding, or anything else for that matter that might affect quality or accuracy.

    That's gorgeous. I NEED one in .308!
    I would rather die on my feet than to live on my knees.

    I have the featherweight in 7mm-08 and I absolutly love it. I want another (sporter model) in 30-06 just because I like them so much.

    Since their return in 2008, they are the best buy for your money.
