I think I'll get a Tikka T3 as my next bolt gun... maybe a 700...
but to be honest, ever since the 08 election, I've been putting my in stuff that might be more finite, than bolt actions and lever actions...

But I digress... let us know how it works Marlin.

Just another budget priced rifle for the Big Box store market. Every gun company has flirted with these customers. The Remington 788 was floated for the discount stores years ago. How did that work out?
