Re: remington 600

Very good guns. Light ,accurate, and handy. They were the Model 7 long before the model 7. I have a friend who could hunt with any gun ever made, but he shoots his buck every year with his 600 in .308. The only one thats no fun to shoot is the 600 in .350 Rem Mag. That is one of the nastiest recoiling jaw busters any outfit ever made ! Its a good gun, you will like it. I beleive they started making those in 1964 or so.

Re: remington 600

the 600 came in 2 flavors. the original from 64-68 was a 18" carbine with a plastic ventilated rib and walnut stock and short action with a dogleg bolt. came in 222, 223, 243, 6mm 35 rem and 308. the 600 magnum was the same but came with a laminated beech/walnut stock and came in 350 rem mag and 6.5 rem mag. in the 70's they came out with a 600 mohawk that was pretty much the same but no vent rib and either walnut or hardwood stock. not sure of the cals but i know 222, 243, 6mm and 308 at least.

i have a '65 350 mag and can attest to the jawsmacking recoil. it is not a very pleasant gun to shoot and if you don't get a good cheek weld it will knock you a good one. but, it is big deer medicine. the deer that have walked in front of my 350 did not take another step.

a 600 in 243 would be a really nice little giun. good for kids, women or even 250 lb men. i want to get one in 243 one of these days.

Re: remington 600

I love my 600 in .308. Grew up hunting with it. Short, compact easy to handle. In that caliber, it would be great for a young hunter.

Re: remington 600

I own 3 Model 600's. .243 Mohawk, .308, and .350 Mag. I am not sure about the safeties but I can say they are very light, maneuverable and accurate rifles. IMO, the .308 kicks harder than the .350Mag I think because the Mag has a recoil pad and the regular model in .308 does not.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.

Re: remington 600

The Rem. 600 does have the Walker trigger that - if not properly adjusted - can go bang when closing the bolt or taking the safety off. I put a Timney trigger in my .222.

Go to Remington's website, I believe they have an ongoing offer to address the old triggers on 600/700 models.

Re: remington 600

there was a couple of recalls for the 600. look at the left side of the trigger and see if there is a V. if so, the infamous trigger recall that was killing people was done. they also will fix the safety so that you can open the bolt with the safety on. i had gander do mine years ago and i think it cost $15 because remington paid for the labor or parts or something.

Re: remington 600

I had one in .308 that was a great shooter I free floated the barrel and glass bedded the action. Regret selling it. Bought by a fellow HPA member I think he still has it, good guy fair price. The recall had a group of SNs that were affected the one I had, purchased new did NOT require return to factory if I rember right
I would JUMP ON A 243 with both feet!!

Nice gun. I had a mohawk in 222 that did not shoot very well.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same
