I have a couple of South Carolina made M70's, one a super grade in 30-06 and the other a featherweight in 7mm-08. The super weighs in at 9 lbs, 3 oz scoped and the fw comes in at 7 lbs, 11 oz scoped. I also have a couple of classic featherweights in 270 and 308 that are just an ounce or two heavier than the SC model featherweight. In carrying the rifles, there is a very noticeable difference in weight between the super grade and the featherweights, plus the fw's just balance a heck of a lot better in the hand. With that being said, the SG is a beauty and won't be going anywhere while I'm still around.

Here's a shot of the 7-08 featherweight before it was scoped...
