I hope the 783 is that good, but I am not holding my breath, Remington QC has been piss poor lately.
i have handled a few of the M783's in various calibers, and so far, quality looks pretty good. IMO, without having shot one yet, it's a huge step up from the M770.

IMO, i don't really expect a lot of aftermarket support for the M783, because it's pretty much an entry level rifle at an inexpensive price. now that could change,but i don't think that many are going to be wanting to upgrade an inexpensive hunting rifle. i think that is the market that Remington was going after with the 783, and not target shooters.

Does the 783 have the pressed in barrel like the throw away 770 did?

no it doesn't. it uses a barrel nut system similiar to the Savage rifles. IMO, this why i think the 783 will have a much better potenial for accuracy over the 770. the barrel nut system will be much more consistent than the pressed in barrels of the 770.

Why don't you shoot one rather than pontificate on things you do not know? Blind gun reviews don't have much value

Owned three defective Remingtons I think I have the right to complain about their poor QC, I am an oldschool Remington fan I really hope this thing is a modern 788 that was a great old gun for what it cost.

IMO, and this is strictly an opinion from someone who has been a fan of remingtons for many years. i believe that Remington still makes good firearms, but it's quite possible because of ramped up production to meet the demand, that QC has slipped to some degree and has allowed products avialable at the consumer level that should never have left the factory in the first place.

i think they need to concentrate on their QC department and get back to quality over qauntity. now even given some of the products that people are reporting as bad, i fully believe this, that some of it is internet rumor, but also believe that some of it is probably true as well. i would still buy a new Remington even today, but would be very vigilant in checking it carefully before buying one.
