Winchester 70 - Featherweight or Sporter

I'm getting nervous as I've read some rumors (hopefully just that) that the Model 70 will soon be no more, even from the new SC production.

So it might be time to bite the bullet and order one.

I hunt in the east and it's mostly mixed woods, pines and hardwoods with a few open areas.

I have always loved the Featherweight stock (barrel length 22") but also like the classic look of the Sporter (cheek piece, 24" barrel).

What do you guys think? I am leaning towards the Featherweight but since this will likely be the most expensive deer gun I ever buy I'd like some experienced opinions.

Thanks!
