Remington Model 7 Threaded

Bought a new rifle. Rem, Model 7, Threaded, KUIU camo, in .308. 16.5 inch barrel. I put a Leupold VX3, 1.5-5 on it with low Leupold rings. It came with the Weaver rail on it. Weighs 6lbs, 4oz, as shown. 36" overall and a couple of inches shorter than my 760 carbine.

Shot a 1" group with it at 100 yards, after getting it sighted in with 180 grain Rem. , CoreLokt's.

To say I love it is an understatement. Like a feather and the kick is not bad at all.

Why I have been lugging my other rifles around for so long, I do not know!

Always been a more traditional walnut and deep blue fan, but I really like this rifle.

Just thought I would share and give a review. Looking forward to fall!

Nice looking gun. One inch at 100 is pretty good.

I shot about 8 rounds to get it where I wanted it. 2" high at 100 yards. Then shot the 3 shot 1" group. So, I have not shot it all that much, but it is a good start.

Could be twins! Lol


Mine is a Savage 16 Lightweight Hunter in 308. With a VX-3 2.5-8 and DNZ Huntmasters it's right around 6.5lbs.


I'm with you....how or why I've ever carried a bigger/heavier rifle is beyond me... especially for how I typically hunt. Most days im on the move the entire time.


I really want a Kimber Adirondack...just for the better stock. Only option for the Savage is a Boyds and it'll add around a pound. Debating on selling the savage or putting it in a Boyds just to have. I think in a Boyds, it'd be a dandy rifle. Just not as light. Still lighter and more handy than most setups...

Very nice!

I looked at the Kimber, but I wanted a shortest barrel I could get, and could not see spending 3 times what I paid, for a rifle that was longer and almost the same weight.
