Mechanics: The action functions correctly. This rifle employs a control-feed bolt. The safety is mounted at the back of the bolt on the right side. It has three positions. Pushed all the way forwards, the safety is off and ready to fire. In the middle position, the safety blocks the trigger, but allows the bolt to be opened for loading and unloading. In the rear position, the safety blocks the trigger and the bolt. We did not fire this rifle. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is the installed scope mount.

Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 70 Coyote Light chambered for .308 Winchester. The Coyote Light has a fluted heavy profile barrel, a ventilated Bell & Carlson synthetic stock and features the original control-feed bolt that made the Model 70 famous.
