That's what I thought, but I figured I try my luck here. I have been shooting/hunting for about 30 years now, but I always learn something from the folks on this forum.
My dad owns the Winchester Model 100. Bought it new in 1970. It's in great shape, but he has been using it a lot more lately. He lives on 200 acres now and likes to carry it in the utility vehicle. I'd hate to see the original stock get banged up. He loves it, and refuses to use/buy anything else. I suggested a SS/Synthetic Handi-Rifle in 243. But he likes his Model 100.
Thanks for the info!
