I have a number of the Schultz and Larsen 22lr rifles. The oldest was manufacurered in 1928 (model 24) and I shoot it in USBR Sporter competition. With a 36x scope it barely makes the 8.5# weight, but I had to add a set of aluminum scope rings to make the weight. I have a new Custom class gun (10.5#) this year based on the S&L receiver. It's not finished yet, as I'm waiting on the stock from Canada. Presently the action and Lilja barrel are sitting in the original M70-type stock and early results in competion have been excellent - 2 USBR matches and two wins. I don't know if the new stock will add any points to the score, but it will at least "look" good.

If you are going to shoot any competition with your S&L M70 - weight with the stock M70 is going to be a problem. It's too heavy for Sporter (USBR is 8.5#) and as a stock gun not very competitive in Custom and Unlimited classes. There are no aftermarket triggers available and the factory triggers can't be adjusted low enough to give you a "light" touch on the trigger. On the plus side - they are fun to shoot. You can't beat the "market price" on most of these guns.
