Default Remington 710 30-06

My dad just gave me his Remington 710 chambered in 30-06 with a Leupold rifleman scope 3-9x50. He got a bigger badder rifle and said he didn't need this one so I could have it. Anyone own one of these and can tell me what you think about the rifle.

to be honest they are not that great a rifle. the predecessor to the M770, pretty much the same gun in a different stock. they have very cheap and flimsy stocks, heavy and gritty triggers, sloppy and sticking bolts, ect., ect.,... just look up the reviews on the M770 and just replace it with the 710 and you have all the information you need.

i had bought one several years ago myself and quickly sold it at a loss, just to be rid of it. i have shot several for friends over the years, IMO, the M710 and the M770 are pure junk. i can't even believe Remington put their name on these!

I have a Remington 721 30-06 I got from my Grandfather after he passed! I really like that rifle and that is a little heavy, but it shoots great.

these rifles are made for somebody who goes out maybe 3 to 4 times a year and just want to get started.. they are just a basic hunting rifle tp probally get somebody new started. even though everyone i seen has a awfull action and bolt system they will shoot and kill a animal. i believe for the price though a marlin or a stevens 200 is a better choice for the same money, one thing is about the stevens you can always change its barrel to another caliber. it probally has little sale value so i would put the best scope on it u can afford and shoot it.

Other than the bolt being sticky I've had good luck with the 710 7mm mag I bought. it had a user adjustable trigger that helps if the trigger pull isn't up to pare.

For the price you got it for its a great buy!!

Try it first before you decide it sucks. What matters is if YOU like it or not. If it hits the target at 100-150yds with regularity its a deer getter any day of the week. Those guns werent meant to be ultrasmooth target guns they were meant to hit a 3inch circle at 100yds for the average joe that shoots only at deer once a year.

JonM is spot on. I have a buddy that has a 770 in 7mm. He gets 2 deer every year with it. I seen him shoot at 100 yard years ago. It hold a decent pattern.

But the 721 is a completely different rifle. It is a very good rifle and the 710 and 770 can't compare with it. I have a 722 in .244 Rem. It is the short action version of the 721. It is not pretty as it was designed in the early 1960's to be Remington's "economy" bolt action. But, the quality and workmanship is is equal to anything produced today.
