Default Remington 7, 700, 770

Can anyone tell me the difference between the Remington actions on a Model 7, 700 and 770.(243). Is the 7 the same as the 700 just in a shorter package?

Thanks, I am interested 243. I thought all 243's were considered short action. If that is the case, and I don't know diddly, then your statement may be incorrect.
Thanks again

.243 is availible in the Model 7, The 770 is not of the same quality. It uses plastic for some parts, not steel and I believe the barrel is press fitted, not threaded. It is an attempt to produce a Value rifle. Bad choice on their part, they failed to make it accurate and or reliable. Hence a junk action. It is also a long action, not a short.

The 7 is only a short action and is lighter than the 700 short action.
The 700 is available in short, long and magnum length.
The 770 is a cheap excuse for a Remington. IMHO

Ok, SO I will rule out the 770. Had to be a reason they are half the price.

So according to you Robocop, the 7 is lighter than the 700, that is due to the entire gun being a compact model correct.?
Is the action in the 7 as good a quality as the 700? I am only interested in the 243

The model 7 is intended to be an easy to carry rifle that is reasonably accurate and powerful. The barrels tend to be very thin. The barrels will heat up quickly which will open up groups. 3 shot groups fired in a short amount of time will generally be two fairly close together (1 1/2" - 2") and the third that is 3-5" away.

The first shot is all that really matters when hunting. The traditional "3 shot group" will be deceiving. Many model 7 owners use 2 shot groups as a basis for accuracy.

Great information, Thank you, now that I have worn that out anyone have experience with the Savage 11 FYXP3.243 WIN Youth Rifle with Scope .
It reads as though its a better choice than the 7. I am looking for the lighter 243's and I also like the detachable mag in this rifle. I don't know much about the accu trigger option but it seems to be a desirable option.

The Savage I do know better. I've never been a Remington fan. Don't own one.
1st question, why a youth model?
2nd, why a .243?
Bad part about a detachable magazine, hit the button and it is history. I'm a Mauser guy, the internal mag with hinged floorplate works for my to this day. My CZ 527 mag is $50.00. Since it is a controled feed, you need the mag to load correctly. I've never found a pratical use for a detachable mag on a hunter. If 5 rounds, 3 on some does not do it, you need practice.

! its for my daughter
2 Lower recoil
3 detachable mag so shes not fumbling about in a tree stand in the dark trying to load her magazine when she could have done it the night before.
If these models have a feed problem I would like to know. Have not seen any remarks as of yet to point to that issue.
