Wood stocked 7600 carbine?

Apparently has been dropped from production as Remington is only listing the synthetic carbine on it's website.

i hope the new owners don't ruin that brand. the 7600 probably isn't a cash cow for them so you never know. good thing is there are a lot of old ones out there for reasonable prices.

And there goes an American Icon.......The Remington slide action rifle is an American tradition........Wood stock and blued steel.

I own a 760 carbine in 30-06. It is Walnut stocked and blued steel.

Leave the plastic to the semi-autos.....they are pretty much useless anyway as far as a dedicated hunting firearm.

Remington, It's over for you.

Don't let the name fool Ya!

Re: Wood stocked 7600 carbine?

I guess the days of a nice piece of walnut on a rifle are coming to an end. Heck I remember the old high gloss basket weaved walnut stocks on the old pump action rifles. My uncle even has one of the limited ones they made with the spiral barrel. That was a pretty nice looking rifle. I guess tradition is being thrown out the window. I know my Model 6 30-06 carbine has a pretty nice piece of wood on it. Tom.

Re: Wood stocked 7600 carbine?

for my hunting, synthetic and matte finish make absolute PERFECT sense...about the ONLY time im in a stand is opening morning of deer season...other than that, im driving...and almost always a driver..in and out of the truck many times a day..always in the thick stuff trying to jump em..im tough on guns..

but, i dont own a synthetic big game rifle..it makes perfect sense..but it just dont feel right to me...

walnut and bluing is a deer rifle to ME...


like was said, atleast old ones can be had..and with the internet auctions and such, they can be found easier than hoping one shows up in a gun shop...

got a buddy that owns a shop and he still hasnt had a whelen pump gun come through his door in 2.5 years..it took me a few days of seriously looking to hunt one down..ended up being in a local shop, but, found many online and without the internet, i would never called that shop..it was over an hour from home and i never heard of it..turns out he buys grice wearhouse stuff..which turns up special runs NIB that got burried and forgotten about..

Stupid. Not like they have to make special stocks for them.

Sorry to see it get axed, but it was bound to happen eventually. Too many economy guns with cheap plastic in demand these days.

Isn't that the truth! That's the problem with our country and economy today. Everyone is looking for CHEAPEST! Then that's what you get CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP! This philosophy will eventually take over every American product. Stay tuned. They should have made the synthetic stocked rifles the same price as wood and this would have never happened. It's a shame.
