I know this may not be the appropriate place to ask this question but.....
I'm interested in buying a controlled round winchester model 70. There is a guy selling one locally and he doesnt know if it is controlled round feed or push fed. Now I am a newb and I dont really know what to look for exactly. Isnt the difference with a controlled round fed rifle that the bolt grabs the round as it pushes it in and with a push fed rifle it just pushes it in without grabbing it?
All i want is confirmation or a little insight into how to tell the difference, not a suggestion of getting a Remington 700 or something
thanks for the replies, they were very helpful.
I went and looked, it was a push feed , but oh well, now I wasnt tempted to buy another gun.
