i had a few bought new that didn't measure up. but my biggest disapointment was a brand new winchester feather weight in 7mm 08. out of the box it couldn't hit the side of a barn even with a leupold 3x 9x 40 scope and and goood quality rings. no mater what load i worked up for it it was inaccurate. i floated the barrel, still no good. i glass beded the the receiver and the first two inches of the barrel, still no good. i put it away and never used it. it cost me a grand.
my favorite winchester rifle was a 94 trapper in .44mag . i bought a heap of parts from numerich and slicked it up. an awesome little rifle. with 240 grain xtps and full loads of h110 or 296 it kicked hard
