Purchased a Model 770 with scope. 270 cal. The action sticks and is slow, the clip is very hard to put in. It does feel good at the shoulder but needs work. Has anyone experianced this as well and can we fix them (the action on the bolt)...?
The best fix would be run it over with a dump truck beat it against the concrete an then go get a marlin x7 270 for what u paid for the 770 or should we call it the green brand turd.

yeah what they said as far as the 770 goes. all the rifles that they told you about are good replacements. just want to add one more to consider, the thompson venture is a well made firearm with good shot grouping out of the box and a decent action, the price on them is just right. most dont come with glass on them though.

another option, check out the pawn shops and gun stores for used rifles, i have seen some really decent buys on used rifles lately. just last month i bought a used remingtom M700 in 270 for $360 + tax. i refinished it and bought a decent scope for it, and i am still only into it for about $600 now. i saw a savage 110? i think it was, in 30-06 the other day in excellent shape, with a scope for $275 +tax. seemed like a decent deal to me.

I have a Remington model 770, it's fine for what I use it for which is very little. I shoot about 20 rounds to sight it in and for play about once a year and shoot as lucky as I get when I hunt ( once or twice a year ). The rifle sucks compared to other rifles but it DOES work. It goes bang when I pull the trigger, it puts deer down, and it's accurate over 200yds for me. If I was an avid long distance shooter or hunted a lot, and I mean a lot, I would buy something better. It's hard for me to complain too much when I only hunt 3-5 times a year.

Personally id sell it and get a better gun. Or strip it down and sell all the parts except the bolt, reciever, and barrel to someone you know who has a tikka t3

this is pretty much what they are about, and if it serves your purpose and does what you expect from it, then it's fine. but too many have bought one expecting more than it was capable of, (me included) and found themselves displeased with it. i bought one several years ago when i wanted to add another 30-06 to my collection, wasn't happy with it all. never could get consistent groups even with handloads, and just didn't like it. sold it after about a month, (at a loss) and bought a Mossberg ATR in 30-06, much better shooting rifle, was able to get 1/2" groups with handloads out of it. problem i had with the Mossberg, was because of the stock design or material, it hammered my shoulder. i kept it about a year or so, then traded it for a pistol in 44 magnum. now i will end up buying a remington M700 or a marlin XL7 in 30-06 to replace it in the near future.

All I can say is that to date I have not heard anything good about a Remington 770 from someone who bought one and used it.
