Rem 783
I'm looking at getting a remington 783. I heard they r built to be better then the legendary 700 and way better than the 770. Is there anyone out there that has one that could tell me there opinion?

I recommend a CZ hunting rifle. Better quality materials. I almost bought a 700, but then I test fired it. I did not like the ergonomics nor the harmonics of the barrel (accuracy after a few rounds, especially when hot). The Remington 7 series actually costs more in Germany being an import. Then I test fired a CZ and fell in love with it. I now owned CZ-550 synthetic, and it is waaaaaaay better. The set trigger is awesome and the rifle does not heat up as bad as the Remington after a few shots. The iron sights are high quality and spot on. The gun is wicked accurate, plus it helps when you buy a good scope. Remember, without using your irons, the gun is only as good as the scope you are using.

This is my opinion.

I want one too, but I don't think its going to be better then the 700. But I believe its going to a accurate rifle perfect for hunting and target shooting

I won't touch anything else with the Remington name on it until they fire/replace their joke of a QC department. My last three were defective as was my brothers brand new R1, I won't be wasting any more money on them, if you want a good rifle on the cheap look at Savage/Stevens I have owned half a dozen of them and have been thrilled with them all, if you could spend a few extra $$$ Tikka makes an awesome rifle for a fair price too.

What Remington's did u and brother have a problem with?

Apex-Predator 05-08-2013 04:00 PM

The R1 that is their 1911 frame pistol, how on earth they managed to screw up a 1911 is beyond me that is about the most reliable design out there. Stupid thing would not feed with any ammo we tried, sent it back Remington supposedly did a factory rebuild on it and it still had the same problem. Worst QC of any firearms company. I will not touch another Remington made after Apr 2007 that is when they sold their soul to the devil.

When I find one I'm going to check it out at the gun shop. If it feels good and the bolt is smooth, I'm going to get one. I just bought Savage Hunter 111 and I love it. But what I want to do with this one is use it for a cheap long range gun. If it doesnt work out that way I'll change out the scope and give it to one of the boys to use for hunting. I don't know why I feel this is going to be a good rifle.

Awesome crazycastor let me no what u think. I also ended up picking one up at my LGS. I have not shot it yet but it feels pretty solid. The bolt feels real smooth to me and closes nice and tight. But I am a beginner at all of this lol. I'm going to try and get it out this weekend.

I bought a 700 BDL in 30-06 and was very disappointed in the rifle. accuracy was abysmal.

Spent $$ on the trigger and bedded stock with no improvement. Had problems with the mag door release that resulted in two trips back to the factory to resolve.

I too am done with Remington.

I picked up a Thompson Center Venture in 7mm-08 to replace the 700.

The overall quality is much better and this riffle shoots MOA with everything I have shot out of it. Not one issue with fit/finish. Not one issue.

This is a much better rifle, not to mention $200 less expensive. Lifetime warranty too, though it looks like it will go unused.

Big Green better get their heads out of their rears soon or they will become irrelevant.

Let is all know how it shoots. Haven't heard from anyone yet that has shot one.
