I purchased a Browning Xbolt 270 in Maple a couple years ago and the price was nowhere near $1,600. .
What does that have to do with a M70 Supergrade?I have a new Browning Xbolt Western Hunter stainless 270 and I've yet to find a round it likes yet.
I don't have first hand shooting experience with it, but a few of your questions are subjective.1) How does it shoot?
2) What do you like or dislike about it?
3) Is it worth paying 1599.99 for it?
4) The one I'm looking at is a 270.
I have purchased a M70 Super Grade in .308 along with 3 other M70s since the changeover to FNH production. All four shot MOA or better with factory fodder.
The Super Grade is a quality rifle in its price range and also having purchased a Browning X-Bolt Medallion in the last 12 months or so, I feel the M70 SG to be a superior rifle.
I'm considering the purchase of another SA Super Grade to make into a .358 and was just looking online at them yesterday. The high grade walnut ones start at just under $1,000 and the high grade maple run $200-$300 more.
I prefer the Super Grade to the Kimber with high grade wood or the Medallion. But you may prefer one of the other two.
Pics are of my Super Grade in .308 and the very similarly finished JOC Tribute rifle in .270. The wood quality, bluing and finish of the rifles is near identical, but the JOC has some added features and was made in very limited production, thus was a more expensive rifle.
I have the super grade in 7x57 mauser and I love it. It is a shooter.I have a new Browning Xbolt Western Hunter stainless 270 and I've yet to find a round it likes yet. I have been looking at those Winchester Model 70 Supergrade's in the AAA maple and can't get over how nice they are!..
