Has anyone purchased a 700 recently?
I've heard of some quality control issues with Remington lately and wanted to know of any major problems..
Also, what scope are you running on it? price? specs? caliber? use? etc...
My hunting buddy got an SPS Tactical last year in .308 with a Burris scope and has had been very pleased. It's a shooter.
I got a BDL in 30-06 last year and I haven't been as pleased but my complaints are all cosmetic. The gun functions perfectly but I'm not happy with a couple of things. There is a large gouge in the stock were the material cut out of the wood in the bolt slot wasn't cut out evenly. And the metal for the magazine plate either wasn't polished very well or the finish in the metal was just bad before it was blued. It isn't very obvious but it is noticeable in the right light. I have no complaints other than those cosmetic issues.
