Picked up a Model 760 on Gunbroker and today when I got it discovered the bolt would not close with clip in place. It is striking the rear of the clip. My cousin who has owned a 760 for years says bad clips are common. Anyone have any feedback on this?

Thanks

Clip is marked 30/06, .270, 35 Whelen and .280. The real of clip appears to be a little too high. Also it has a slide so the rounds can be loaded easier as it compresses the spring.

That slide is not to make the rounds go in easier. That's a Remington 742 clip and it's a bolt stop. Get the proper clip and you'll be in business. Someone on Gunbroker who has a 742 or 7400 would be happy to take that clip off your hands.

Thanks guys. Gun shop told me same thing so I got a new clip. Gun functions very nicely with right clip. Appreciate everyone's replies.
