I'm assuming you're talking about the wood stocked "Swede". I love that rifle. Those Husqvarna's have one of the very smoothest actions ever made. The other one with the Hart Barrel wasn't any slouch for accuracy either when it had the factory barrel. They are getting much tougher to find, and mine is literally in brand new condition. Not a mark on the stock.

You are correct, sir.  I was talking about the Swede.  I'm a sucker for a schnabel forend wood stock.  That's part of why I got my Model 70 Featherweight Deluxe.

Sounds like you and I have similar tastes. I'm a sucker for a nicely figured wood stocked Mod 70 with a stainless barreled action and throw in a red recoil pad while you're at it. This was what Winchester, I believe, called the Ultimate Classic. It had a Krieger barrel that you could get in a plain contour, fluted, octagon and one other that's slipping my mind right now (could have been called half round meaning it had a couple or three flats and not a full octagon). It was a Winchester Custom Shop rifle and most of the ones I've seen for sale had beautiful wood. I'm pretty sure they made a Feather Weight version too.

Only one rifle can rival the Model 70 Featherweight, and that’s a Custom Shop Featherweight. The Controlled Round Feed action with massive claw extractor bolt is hand-honed for unbelievable smoothness. The semi-fancy American walnut stock features a Schnabel fore-end, cut checkering and is fitted with a 1" Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad and flush-mount sling swivel bases. A match-grade 22" Krieger® barrel is chambered for a variety of short and long action cartridges. Offered in either blued or stainless steel.

Lucky shot. Some 45 Decembers ago as I was quail hunting in a creek bottom near my home, I noticed a snow goose (alone) some 300 yards away in a one of the harvested bean fields. With no way to get near him without the bird dogs spooking him, I detoured around the field, finished my quail hunt and went back to the house. There I swapped my 12 gauge for a Savage 99 .243 and headed back for the goose. My only hidden approach was along the recently channelized creek with little cover but Johnson grass on the bank. I took the long shot from the field edge and missed, flushing the goose. He flew almost out sight (just a speck in the sky), but turned and flew back high over the creek. As he came by the open sighted .243 field dressed him putting what remained in the shallow creek. "His goose was cooked" ----the next day.
