Remington 770

For a knock around gun is it worth it or should I fork over another $100 for a model 700?243 caliber if it matters to you.I already have a 22lr,22mag,22-250,30-30,270,45 flint,50 inline and 30-06.I have a hole in my selection of guns.Next may be a 25-06 or 257 Roberts.I don't need caliber suggestions just thoughts on a 770 versus a 700.

I have M700s. If I still grew 'maters, might lean towards a 770?

When it comes to a 770, and a 700 you get what you pay for!

Re: Remington 770

I'd druther have a new Stevens 200, than either of Remington's "bargain" rifle entries, like the 770 or 710.

I know some of them "shoot". They're just too ugly and unrefined. Yeah I know, the Stevens (or any Savage variant), ain't much to look at, either.

Just my opinion. Ain't figurin' to buy any of 'em.

Re: Remington 770

I've been is those shoes a few times. A couple years after the fact I'm always asking myself why I didn't spend the extra hundred bucks.

Re: Remington 770

Haven't seen all that many complaints from people that actually own those Remskis. Perhaps they're content with them.

Grumbles mostly come from folks that say they wouldn't own one. Like me.
