Default Winchester .375

For the past month or so I have been looking for a new model Safari Express in .375. At first I had a casual interest, but after finally deciding that I wanted one I started looking with more effort. I can't find one. I have looked at rifles that were advertised as new Safari Express models only to discover that, although they were unused, they were produced in Conn., not the newest model.

Sellers (auctions, etc.) are dumping the older production new rifles, and I guess they are not to blame. They have the same name, and the same specs, but were produced when Winchester was having some QC problems and do not have the MOA trigger.

Has anyone here actually seen the new model on the shelf?

I know we had on recently but according to our Gunsamerica store it is sold pending final confirmation.

I'll check on it and will get back with you.

I don't blame you for not wanting a Conn. M70. The last one I bought was pretty sorry... QC wise. Good luck finding one from SC.

I checked on that rifle and we do have one available. The person that commited to buy never followed through so it is still available on our GA store.

I looked at that very ad a few days ago when it was labeled as sold. Good price. A few minutes ago I called the local FFL guy that I buy from and told him that it is back on the market. He informed me that he had found one this morning somewhere in Texas, and that it was already on the way. I had given him a deposit two weeks ago and told him to buy one for me if he could find it.

If the rifle that is sent to him is yet another Conn. product, I will ask him to try to buy your rifle if it is still available. The one that is being shipped in is about $100 more than your price (crap!). Thanks much.
