Mausers take more work to make them presentable, but they also have design advantages. They come in different lengths, and they offer better safety in case of a case rupture. Model 70's can give a shooter a face full of hot gas when a case fails. Mauser magazines are also better though expensive, one-piece ones are available for M70s. The Dakota action keeps the best of M70 design and improves the gas-handling problem. To get back to the original topic, part of what makes Winchesters collectible is their wide variety of calibers and shooting applications.

I would like to get a 375, once the gun coffers are recharged a bit.

Auction find
Mills, I bought this one earlier this year and then re-worked it. I was lucky as I got this one for just $800

Thanks Mills
RWTF, I was happy and I thought I had said the cost in the post I shared. I guess I didn't. And when I saw what I had purchased I was very pleased. Every once in a while things go my or your way. Life is a surprise every morning!
