From all reports the 770 usually offers decent accuracy. That said, it's crudely machined with sloppy clearances and poor fit.
If it were the only rifle priced in the $300 range I might hold my nose and let it pass, but right now there's a renaissance of inexpensive rifles such as the four I listed that sell for similar prices. Since that's the case there's no excuse whatsoever for buying a 770. All four listed are better rifles by a WIDE margin. This is why Remington has dropped it. I'll hold off on the 783 until I get a chance to see one in detail.
