REMINGTON MAKES DAMN FINE SHOOTIN' IRONS!!

Why would be skeptical of a Remington?? Marlins have a good reputation as well!

patrick, just make sure it's the X7 series of rifle and not the MR7 they made several years ago as they are not the same rifles. from what i have read, is the MR7 was a decent rifle but sales wise was a failure, nothing wrong with it, just didn't sell very well. then several years later, Marlin gets back to building a bolt action centerfire again, the X7 series of rifles. now that being said, i own and shoot three of the X7's, and they are very well built rifles and accurate too. price wise, the X7's are a budget or entry level rifle, but shoot and look like a more expensive one. they are priced at or below the Remington M770 but act more like a M700! i too in the future plan on adding a XL7 in 270 to my collection. hope this helps.

i don't know how good the tikka t3 is, but i don't like the looks of it. like some of the browning rifles, very well made and accurate rifles, but i just don't like the look of them for some reason. my dad had a few when i was a lot younger, and one of them i have always liked, the SA-22 rifle.

Hey axxe I do have a tikka t3 its a great gun, light weight ,accurate, the fit is very good. I cant say anything bad about it, but my marlin x7 rifles are just as good half the price. But I would never turn down a tikka very good quality rifles

my reasons are based on the look of the rifle, just like the Blaser rifles, those are very well made rifles and very accurate for a take-down rifle but i just never liked the way they looked. the craftsmanship was very good too. i'm sure the tikka t3 is a well made gun, coming from sako, it's just a personal preference and not based on the rifle fuction or performance. i do like the looks of my marlin X7's though! mulie i got an idea for a custom X7!
