The Featherweight Compact carries on the Model 70® Featherweight heritage. It does it in a deluxe, refined model that is an excellent choice for smaller-framed shooters, ladies, young people or hunters who prefer a compact, light mountain rifle. Its comfortable, smaller platform instills confidence in shooters because it fits them better than a full-sized rifle. The Compact Model 70 action has Pre-’64 Controlled Round Feeding, the easy-to-use Three-Position Safety and a jeweled bolt body with knurled bolt handle. The M.O.A.™ Trigger System is easily adjustable and has no take-up, creep or overtravel. The Featherweight Compact with its 20" barrel and fast, flat-shooting calibers starts young shooters off right with a rifle possessing all the deluxe features of the Featherweight. It’s a rifle to train with, hunt with, have fun with and pass down to the next generation.
Small, but feature packed. The Featherweight Compact is sized to let younger and smaller-statured shooters requiring a shorter length of pull to experience the Winchester® mystique for themselves.
