Default 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.

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.
