"Win model 70 black shadow"

Ok so I have a 7mm wsm in a model 70 black shadow. I was thinking about changing the stock to a wood stock. I have been told that it is different than the normal mod 70s. I tried calling winchester and they had me in hold forever caled back and they were closed. Anyone know if the blackshadow crosses over with another model? I also was wondering if any suggestions on improving accuracy? It shoots terrible with factory ammo. Fed 150 sp
I reloaded a Few Diff loadsAnd got it improved quite a bit. Hornady interlocks improved a little went to barnes
And it improved quite a bit. Any suggestions on easy fixes? Also is the trigger adjustable On the BS?
Thanks!

I had a Model 70 black shadow in 7mm Rem mag several years ago . No matter what I tried with factory ammo and handloads it had poor accuracy , I ended up selling it very cheap . Nothing against the model 70 , I own several others and love them , but that black shadow must have had its barrel installed at 5:00PM on a Friday .

You will need to find a stock and buy bottom metal for it. I use ptg aluminum bottom metal. If you can find a used extreme weather stock those are a good stock but fiberglass. If you want a wood stock look for a used or check cdnn. I would bed either stock.
The trigger is adjustable but if your not comfortable with that. Take it to a gunsmith. Ernie the gunsmith sells lighter springs which work well and he has instructions on his site.

Thanks guys. Ya I've thought about selling it but I won't get
Much for it especially in a 7wsm. So I was wanting to make it shoot good if there was an easy fix. But I don't wanna dump much into it and have a bad shooting gun still. I don't know what to do haha. But thanks for your guys'. Input

I'd try floating the barrel, bedding, and different handloads. Get it to shoot before you put money in it. If its a dog, sell it and get another. Something is better than nothing.

I believe the only difference in the stock for the shadow and the standard model 70 is the shadow has a blind magazine with no floor plate.
You could add a hinged floor plate or a removable magazine by purchasing either, and then buy a stock for a hinged floor plate model 70.
Or just order a stock for a model 70 with a blind magazine box.

Boyd's stocks has both on their website starting at about $130.00 in several styles and colors.

I have two Marlin rifles that I purchased Boyd's stocks for and the improvement in accuracy was unbelievable.
Those cheap plastic gun stocks are sometimes to flexible and cause contact where it shouldn't and allow periodic movement that kills your accuracy.

If you can grip the for end of the stock and flex it side to side, that's likely the problem.

I did glass bed the recoil lug area on the rifles I worked on , but the fit was good on the stocks I received.

Hope this helps.

Ok here's what you do order a boyds stock short action blind magazine just like what your shadow really is, then with a file you remove just a hair of material from the magazine box. At that point your new stock fits and your rifle looks great. You don't lose any mag capacity either. Mine will shoot 140 grain win blue box or 140 grain accubonds in the black box, I usually use hand loads but these are the factory rounds that work for me.
Just realized how old this thread was sorry
