C3, how long did it take for them to do the repair and return the rifle?

C3, right you are. I sent my rifle last week and received an email notification that they have my rifle in the queue with a link to check the repair status. This bodes well.

I'll keep on Remington to make sure my rifle is moving through the system.
joe, i own a marlin XS7 in 7mm-08. love this round! very accurate, doesn't punish your shoulder with the recoil either. just another suggestion, i added a set of 7mm-08 reloading dies to my bench and started reloading for it because the ammo was way more expensive than 308 or 30-06 ammo off the shelf. very easy ammo to reload. i haven't bought factory ammo for mine in about a year now. hope you get your remington back in good shape. i also own several remingtons and have been very pleased with them also.

I just got off the phone with Remington and am pleasantly surprised. They received my rifle last Friday and the following Thursday (after a holiday weekend) they had already reamed the chamber and were test firing it to ensure it functioned properly. I could have it back late next week.

I just received an email today - one week after Remington received my rifle - that it was shipped today. So far, so good.

My Rem M7 should be delivered tomorrow. Big Green has done a good job so far.

Very happy to hear that. I have a lot of faith in Remington and so far I've been very lucky with their products.

As advertised, it was delivered today. Now I have to remount and zero my scope, and test it out.

On a different note, I had been considering a semi-auto .22 and decided on a Rem 597, which I bought today. At Dick's it was $169.99 and Rem is offering a $25 rebate ($145 isn't all bad for a 597). They did not have it in stock and it should arrive in under 10 business days.

Well, I have good news and bad news. First the good news: Big Green solved my head space issue and if you let the barrel cool between shots my Model 7 shoots one inch groups. Of course, with the thin barrel, if you shoot it hot the rounds are all over the place. The bad news is that the rifle has trouble feeding from the blind magazine. Maybe it was the fact that I could only load one round at a time on my range, but every second cycle the bolt failed to pick up a round from the magazine.

More Remington bad news... I bought a Remington 597 which threw off a part from the bolt on the third round ever fired through it and the rifle no longer functions. Of course, I cannot return it to the retailer, so I have to send another firearm to Remington.

I'm now officially done with Remington products. In fact, I am considering trading in my Model 7 toward a TC Venture or Tikka T3 Light. Any thoughts about the relative merits of the Venture vs the T3?

You should've researched a little before getting the 597. Remington is known for rock solid bolt action center fire rifles, not 22's.

A 10/22 would've been a better buy, as the marlin 60 would've been paramount to the first two.

Your problem with the 7 and magazine. Are you short stroking? Are the rounds completely seated in the mag?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
