Default Remington 770

Was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Remington 770. Lgs has one. I am looking to use it as a hunting rifle. It's a 30 06 with a synthetic stock.

I have not heard, read, seen or otherwise received any information about these rifles that is good in any way. From all of the information I have been exposed to about the 770 I can only determine that it is not a very good rifle. There are some other rifles in this price range that would provide more value and give more bang for the buck. Savage and Marlin both offer better rifles in this price range.

If your looking for an affordable rifle try the t/c venture.

I already have a Rem 700. I could probably get this for about $250.00. It was gonna be something else to play with. Thanks for the suggestion.

Rem 770 is junk. Shot one before that a buddy bought because of the price. Crappy action and not accurate.

they can be bought new for less than $300 in some places. our WalMart had them for sale at one time for $285 NIB. i had one a few years ago, pure junk. gritty and heavy trigger, flimsy stock and a rough bolt when cycling. save your money as there are much, much better rifles out there.

762,

BUY SOMETHING ELSE!
There is also a lot of good used rifles out there for a good price.
Most guys buy them on a whim sight them in and they become closet or safe guns. If the bolt locking lugs still have the original finish on the locking lugs and if the bore is good as they normally always are you have a good deal. For example, in the recent past I purchased a Model 700 Remington with Scope at a local gun show for $450.00. That is not a rare occasion. There usually are many similar deals at the shows and most of the time the dealers have taken them in on trade and want to move the inventory and the dollars! Just a hint. I also saw a Parker Hale Deluxe rifle also for $500 with a scope but it was in a caliber that I already have. The also are excellent rifles.

Thanks for the info. It was almost an impulse buy. But I thought it would be better to ask around. So I can scratch that one off the list. I am still thinking about replacing the 700. We'll just have to keep looking. Thanks guys.
