The 770s are not worth buying if you're going to shoot much or if you're going to be serious about it. They are simply revamped versions of the POS model 710. The design sucks!

With so many used guns on the market I don't know why anyone would buy a 770/atr/stevens 200. You could get a nice used Winchester Ranger/Husqvarna/Parker Hale type gun
in 30-06 or .270 for the price of one of these "package" guns. However that is just my opinion.

well said! i had a guy call me the other day about my remington M700 7mm rem. mag. and wanted to trade a remington M770 in 300 win. mag. i told him, thanks, but no thanks, as i had one of those 770s, and wouldn't trade one 700 for ten of those junky 770s. he said his gun dealer friend said the same thing about the 700s. i informed him to find another gun dealer friend who actually knew something about firearms! i also had a mossberg atr100, and had the chance several months ago to trade it for a taurus 44 tracker, holster and six boxes of ammo. i feel like it was a good trade, as i was never truly satisfied withe the mossberg rifle.

Some 700's have trigger issues...hence the recall.

Most 770's have other issues...so it helps to at least be a shade-tree gunsmith if you own one.

I'd go with a Marlin XL-7 in .30-06 or a XS-7 in .308
Start at $299, and Boyd's Riflestocks has all kinds of replacement wood for 'em if you don't like the OEM Synthetic stocks...

But bone stock, they'll eat an untouched 770 for lunch...and give pimped 700 owners a lot to think about at the range,
as the X-7's are sub-MOA from the box

oh i agree, i have several marlin X7 series rifles, 25-06, 7mm-08 and a 308. i have been very pleased with all of them and will continue to add a few more to my collection, 243, 270, 30-06 and 22-250! i have a few remington m700s and will continue to buy them as well when i find one i like and the price is right. as i said before i owned one 770 once and not too long at that! i lost money on it and still feel like i'm money ahead! worst gun purchase i ever made.

well said! marlin is catching up in the bolt action rifles. savages are very good guns, weatherby's are excellent rifles, but tend to be on the pricey end of the scale. have had a couple years ago, very pleased with them and very accurate rifles. would buy another if the right deal came along.

My experience with Remmies has been hit or miss but I wouldn't trade my 700 for anything. If I were looking for another bolt gun I seriously consider the Ruger M77.

I have several rem 700s GREAT rifles with some work on the triggers, LIKE A COMPLETE NEW ONE!!! I also have a couple 770s, yes they are a complete night and day differance no doubt about it for sure. I like my 770s they shoot ok yes the fit and finish is rough for sure and the bolt gets sticky. To me this comaprison is like the differance between a 1970 toyota pick up and a brand new ford f-250. They are not even in the same class nor were they ment to be. For a guy who takes his rifle out of the case three times a year and shoots it the 770 is just fine. Now if a guy shoots a bit more often then he may want to step up to a 700 with a new trigger(yes I hate the rem chunk trigger!!!) Now if you are wanting something that you can drive tacks with all day long then thats a whole different ball game. Choose what you want to do with it, how much money you can spend without breaking the bank! The 770 when handled with respect just like any other firearm will not blow up and kill you and half the city like so many people have said(no not in this thread). First be safe and have fun. Oh and yeah the 770 will put game on the table took two does with one three years ago. First from 120 yards and then other from 260 yards.
