Winchester Model 70 (pre 64)

Are the model 70s still made in the U.S.? I know that I've heard that the company has been bought out by a foreign company...is this true?

Also, how is the model 70 in the accuracy department? I don't hear much about them in terms of accuracy (it seems that Savage and Remington dominate the accuracy threads; while Winchester and Ruger dominate the toughness, reliability threads).

Last questions...are there any plastic parts on the Featherweight? MIM parts? Anything else that I've forgotten?

I am considering buying a Featherweight in either 308 or 30-06 for deer hunting (maybe the occasional elk).
