First you need to communicate what version of the Model 70 you have, then we can advise you better. Pre-'64, post-'64 push feed, Classic, etc.

I do a lot of work on Model 70s. I've found that Jack First Gunshop, Rapid City SD has more Model 70 parts then anyone else I've found.

Attention shooters:

Received an email today from mr. Stuart slocum @ "fn" corporation in columbia, sc. He said that spare parts for winchester bolt guns, are being handled by the "browning" division of the "fn" family of companies. Will keep all informed as my search for parts continues.
