I went back and re-read your post (OP) and thought I would add that I was practically in the same boat when I bought my first M70. What did I buy...well, it was a Model 70 Super Grade in 30-06. I ordered it online without seeing it and was very happy with the wood that came on it and the beautiful high-polished bluing on the metal. Everything fit together perfectly and the action is smoother than any other rifle I own. I couldn't have been any happier with the rifle. Later on I added the featherweights as I ran across a good deal here and there. I love the M70 action and will probably pick up one or two more in the future.

Also, of the three featherweights that I own, I wouldn't consider any of them to be very punishing in the area of recoil. I find all of them (7-08, 308,270) to be easy on the shoulder. Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Whatever you decide, best of luck to you in your quest!
