Hello, love the forum. I have been using it for some time now, but this is my first post. I bought a model 70 westerner chambered in 243win. My question is did they make only one size action in the westerner. The spacing between the action screws is about 7.5 inches, which I would believe to be a long action. My next question is on the date of manufacture. I have read that they started makeing the westerner in 1982, but when I type in my serial number it says year of manufacture 1981. Any help would be great!
