Seriously, man! I have a model 14 american classic in .243 with the accutrigger, and I love it
It was about $500 brand new, too.
I am not aware of that problem with Winchesters, but you're right, you spend that kind of coin on a rifle and the damn thing should shoot fine for many years
I haven't heard of anyone else having the exact same issue I'm having, but have heard lots of reports similar to what Reynolds357 said. I suppose I got lucky if all I have is creep, but that's expensive creep!
