hopefully Choeshooter will reply. he just got one recently in 270 IIRC, and is having great results with it. i think maybe even a few others may have bought one. so far i haven't seen any bad reviews about them yet.

i have handled a couple at the gun store few times, and have to say, it's a huge improvement IMO over the M770. much nicer feeling trigger, stock is not as flimsy feeling and the bolt is way much smoother. even without shooting it, i would buy one over the M770. just feels more solid feeling than the M770.

Nothing wrong with a 783. It's a good basic hunting rifle but I'll put my savages against any gun out there.

Are you saying this having shot one? Otherwise you and your Savages could be off target

Love mine in .270 Winchester. Gun ( not always shooter) can do 3/8" groups with factory ammo, bushnell banner scope. That's just plain good shooting for a rig under $500

Better than my 700? Probably not. But I would have no issue taking game out to 300 yds with this rifle.

Reason I went w 783, don't like magazine on Ruger American and the Savage stocks simply felt like toy guns to me. IMHO the 783 is the 870 Express of hunting rifles they tried to nail w the 770.....but missed.

Should be able to pick one up under $400

Savage is the king of budget rifles, I know many happy owners shooting 1/2" groups with their cheap guns myself included. I am sure the 783 is a VAST improvement over the 770 but I would bet against one in a head to head shootout with any one of my Savages and for a few bucks more my Tikka makes them all look silly.
If Remington or Ruger wants the budget rifle market they are going to have to fight real hard to take it from Marlin and Savage.

Will the aftermarket parts for a 700 fit a 783? I'm looking to possibly sell my ATR and am looking at other options

Apex-Predator 10-19-2013 03:15 AM

No the 700 is a stand alone rifle, don't expect much of an aftermarket for 770s, 783, ATRs, RARs, or the Axis, if you want a rifle with an aftermarket a Remington 700s or Savage 110 is by far your best bet, though there is an adequate aftermarket for most long standing quality bolt actions except the Browning, they designed theirs not to be modified.

I think the 783 is going to be a great platform to work with. I believe in the future there will be alot of aftermarket parts for it. Right now its just now getting out their. Time will tell but I believe this gun will have a following as a nice hunting rifle. The barrel nut that everyone is complaining about is pretty much a common part on modern day rifles. Its been around for years and has worked on the Ar15s for decades.

Apex-Predator 10-19-2013 05:11 AM

The 783 would be a good platform with it's bedded action and barrel nut design but Savage, Marlin, Mossberg, and Ruger all pretty much already have them beat to the punch making the 783 aftermarket an unlikely event. For the 783 to catch on it would have to be more then just MOA accurate it would have to be Tikka good, and that is a REAL tall order.
I hope the 783 is that good, but I am not holding my breath, Remington QC has been piss poor lately.
