I'm 98% sure that Winchester brought back the Controlled Round Feed (CRF) action in the model 70 in the early '90s, so in the younger half of the "15-20 years old" time frame it could be a CRF action instead of the push feed one used from 1965-around 1993.

The push feed actions were just as accurate, and actually more convenient to use (you can just drop a cartridge in the opening instead of having to push it down into the magazine for feeding). The main benefit of the CRF action is for dangerous game, as the cartridge is always under control and much less likely to jam.
