Rington 7600 200th anniversary at Grice

Thought I’d post this for the guys who don’t get grice e-mails. They just cut the price on the anniversary edition 7600 from $1599 to $999. I’ve never been a pump gun fan but these look nice. Says only 2016 made.

Love the walnut stock and fleur de lis. They lost me with the gold trim, but I'm sure there will be guys that love it. A great gun and fitting pick to mark their 200 th year. I never owned a Remington pump I didn't like and still have a few. My 2 favorites are a 141 and early 50's 760, both in .35 Remington.

I already have a synthetic one in 30.06 and a much nicer wood grain one in .243. Other than the back of the trigger guard safety, which I hate, they are fine rifles.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

So anyone else notice that the second photo down in the third picture is an autoloading shotgun and not a 7600?

Also I would hope that the quality on them is better than their recent production pump guns. My family owns a bunch of pump guns with various manufacturing dates from a 760 in the 1970’s to several 7600’s from the 80’s and 90’s to the new one my dad bought my brother in 2008. The old ones have held up to decades of use and still look good with the polished blued metal and gloss finish on respectable wood.

My brothers new one on the other hand has wood with the character of a 2x4 and a matte finish that gets surface rusts when it gets humid and practically turns orange when it rains. It is now relegated to the safe as a loaner rifle and we tell anyone looking at them to buy an older one as they are much cheaper yet higher quality.

Based on the pictures it looks like the Grice’s one has a much nicer finish on it than the standard ones. To me it looks like they basically took the finish of the old rifle and added engravings with gold inlays. If that’s the case then it might be a good rifle.

Good eye CMP, I didn't notice that until you pointed it out.

Or perhaps Remington is paying homage to the model 14 by utilizing a tubular mag in the anniversary edition 7600.

I have 2, one is 30-06 and the other is 308.. With the 308 I can knock Washington's head off a quarter at 50 yds.

Somehow I don’t think the 30-06 and tubular magazine would play nicely together . . . But then again they did release the 597 in .17 HMR which had the tendency to blow the mag out and or catastrophically fail. So at this point in bankruptcy anything is possible with Remington.
