Re: remington 770

I have never owned one, but have handled quite a few of
them. I think they are a cool looking rifle, alot better
than the M710. If they made them in 223 I would scoop one
up.

Re: remington 770

JMO, BUT I WOULD BUY A MARLIN XL7 FOR $325 AND HAVE A NICER FEELING GUN WITH A LOT MORE CALIBER CHOICES AND A LOT BETTER REPUTATION. i HAVE HANDLED BOTH AND DO NOT CARE FOR THE 770. ONCE AGAIN JUST MY OPPINION AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT OPPINIONS.

Re: remington 770

Ultra tomato stake version of the M710, in my opinion, but they seem to be popular in some circles?



Druther have a Stevens 200 or Marlin X, but that's just my opinion.

Some folks' learnin' curves just look like circles...3A Camp/also hunt 4B

Re: remington 770

I wouldn't buy one.

This is from the USA Today article posted above as a sticky.

"In 2007, partly in response to the lawsuits, Remington introduced a new trigger system for the 700 called the X-Mark Pro. The controversial trigger connector is gone, and the safety includes a trigger block, just as Mike Walker proposed in 1948.

But the Walker trigger is still used in Remington's 770 rifle"

Not worth the risk in my opinion.

Re: remington 770

I shot one of the best groups in my life with my stepsons model 710 in .270. I don't know if the 770's shoot as well but the 710 I tried in 7mm mag shot respectable if not astounding.
