The Marlin, Ruger and Weatherby are inexpensive guns. The Rem 770 is a cheap gun.
Difference being is that those guns are on average $200.00 more, at least up here they are. The Howa is selling for close to $700-$900.00 pending on where you go. The Marlins are around $500.00, so their all more money the The 770. Now are they worth the money? Absolutely. Now if someone is only going to shoot less then four or five boxes a year or just want to see weather or not they'd like to really get into shooting and want a new gun, but one that doesn't cost a lot, I think the 770 is a good choice.

A high volume shooter who already knows they like shooting and is looking for a rifle, then the 770 might not be the best. As for me, it was my first "big boy rifle" since all I ever owned was .22s.

Kaido, those are some really good points and similar to what i suggest. i forget sometimes that you are in Canada and the currency rate is different than here in the states.

for someone with not a lot of money and wanting to try out hunting and might not shoot but a few boxes of shells in a year at most, the M770 can be a viable option. not the best IMO, but viable.

good post Kaido!

I also failed to realize that you were in Canada. For a beginning Hunter the 770 would be perfect, but here in the states you can find the ruger American for around $350 and the marlin for the same.

Well poop, if I could find an American or Marlin for that, I'd defiantly have one by now. I'd probably have one of each in all honesty, but yeah, prices are higher here do to all the importation, transportation and licensing fees.

Little over $350 out the door on the ruger in Ky.
Sorry for bad pics.

That'd be a pretty good rifle to have. One thing I honestly do find strange about it is how much it looks like the Axis/Edge. But I did a quick look around on website for stores I go to a good bit, looks like their all at $449.00 for the basic model of the American.

I really liked the trigger on the American that I looked at yesterday, not so sure about the trigger on the marlin. I have only ever handled one.

I like the look of the receiver a lot better than the axis.

I agree I was very shocked with how the american looks almost identical to the axis.

Only similarity I see is the black stock.
