Remington 7600 vs. Remington 760

How do these two guns differ? What years were the Remington 76's made? What year did they start with the 7600?

Re: Remington 7600 vs. Remington 760

760 made 1952-1980. 7600 made 1981-date. 76 was economy version made only in 86,86,and 87. 760 was a heavier, better made rifle, with a complex locking lug system. 7600 major difference was simplifying the lug system. Both very good guns. Best sales state for them has always been PA.

Re: Remington 7600 vs. Remington 760

I have own both, most is just cosmetics. The 760 and early 7600 stocks were better suited for iron sights. The new 7600 are higher and mad for scopes.IMO

Re: Remington 7600 vs. Remington 760

and don't forget the model 6 from the early 80's. kind of fancy 760's. very nice but almost too nice for my tastes. 760, 6, 7600, i like 'em all. but if i was asked which i would buy, i would look for a late 50's - late 60's 760 in 308. they are sweet guns and very accurate with the free floated barrel. triggers are kind of clunky but they can be made very nice. love the rem pumps.

Re: Remington 7600 vs. Remington 760

I use a 7600 in .257 Rbts. Started to reload for it and the first load I tried worked great!! I had and sold a 760 in 30-06 and sure wished I hadn`t. It was also an accurate shooter. Might try and get an -06 for next Years Bear Season....

I don't really agree that the 760 was a better made gun. The 760 was more COMPLEX!

Be careful what you wish for. Once you find out how sweet it carries and how accurate it is with a peep, you won't be carrying it just on rainy days.

He's right. My 7600 Syn/Matte Carbine is set under a Leupold Vari X III 1.75 X 6 with LOW Leupold mounts. It handles so good in the woods that I find myself carrying it more and more. I have a number of rifles to choose from but find myself more times than not with the Rem. slung over my shoulder.
