Model 70 trigger developed "creep"
Back in August, I bought a brand spankin' new Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in .308 win after drooling over it for a while. It shot great for the first 4 trips to the range, then I started noticing about 1 out of every 10 trigger pulls the trigger would slip about 1/2 way through. Another 2 trips to the range later, it slips every time. I googled the M70 trigger issue, and most others had issues with the gun going off unintended, but not like what I'm experiencing. Anyone have a suggestion?
P.S.- I called Winchester, and they offered to look at it if I would ship it to them. I told them I spent all my money on their $750 rifle and also couldn't risk the rifle getting stolen from USPS workers. Not an option for me. Also, 1 local pawnshop gunsmith looked at it and said he didn't know what the problem was.
