IMO, Remington dropped the ball bigtime with the M710 and the M770, then picked it up with the M783. i handled but have not shot the 783, but i was very much impressed with it's improvements over the 770. and i saw your range reports with yours. the 783 is what they should have done in place of the 770 to begin with, if they were wanting some of the entry level hunting rifle market. the 770 was a huge disappointment when compared to the likes of the Savage Axis, the Marlin X7's and the Mossberg ATR100 series of rifles. and then Ruger brought out the American. Remington may have redeemed themselves with the 783. in closing, the Marlin X7's deserve looking at and shot if you have the opportunity to. i was impressed with the first one i bought and continued to be impressed with the next two of them i bought. i wouldn'thesitate to buy another and hopefully my next one will be the stainless steel XS7 in 243.
Those Marlins are now made in the same plant in Mayfield, Kentucky where the 783 is made. I suspect quality control is now better in terms of the Remingtons, hopefully continues on in terms of the Marlins. I am thinking about a lever action Marlin in '14
