I wanted to pick up a spare rifle for my nephew to use this past deer season. Since I have mainly Remington rifles, 700s and 7s I figured on getting a used M770 which I picked up used. It was stainless and synthetic camo stock. We shot it about a dozen times prior to the opener at the range and it shot nice groups but action was nowhere as smooth as my other remington's. I thought I would put a slightly better scope on it this past weekend and while sighting it in, I noticed it was jamming quite a bit and also had issues lifting the bolt to eject the round. I'm not sure if that is a sign of something wrong with the bolt itself or something worse. I bought this gun knowing it would only be used sparingly by some friends and family, but I don't want anyone getting hurt if it's potentially a pressure problem within the make up of the gun. If anyone else experienced these issues I'd like to know what you did to corect them if it was at all possible. As always, thanks for the feedback.
