Oh, it's birch alright..I'll never forget my first "Mohawk" in 308..I went to set the rifle against a tree, and when I let the buttstock down on a hunk of stone, the toe of the stock split clean off!DennyF said:Don't recall ever seeing a 600 or 660 with a birch stock,
sounds to me like you increased the value if anything. if i was buying one with that story i would not bid less. honestly, as a long time remington collector, i have found the mohawks to be not really a collectors item unless they are NIB and even then not like the early 600's and 660's. keep it for another 30 or 40 years though and it may be a different story. sounds like a great gun for PA hunting. good kid gun too.LONEWOLF5347 said:I did find it shot well and the factory stock was free floated barrel,but the action up front had a lot of side clearance.I tested it by slipping a dollar between the side and the stock after the recoil lug and it would slip in easy.I only skim coated the front of the action and the recoil lug area and about 1 1/2" into the barrel channel gun shrunk the group down to 3 shots in one hole bed job came out excellent NO AIR POCKETS.
I was lucky to find the Mohawk with the factory stock a little darker the the color (blond) this stock I would say is not factory walnut but had a darker color and more on the look of walnut.
ya i was excited when they came out but was disappointed they made them so big and heavy so they never appealed to me. should have been an 18" barrel and slimmer stock. good shooters though. i love the vent ribs and sharkfin front site. plus remington started making 350 and 6.5 mag ammo again which was good news to us model 600 mag owners.Jericho said:The Remington M673s came and went pretty fast, Im sure
they also will be collectible in a few years.
