They also make great anchors, great jack handles, and tire chalks

even the Mossberg ATR is a much better choice than the M770! accurate also.

Many years ago the cheaper version of a Remington bolt-action rifle was the Model 788. I own one of these rifles in .243. The 788 is a much better rifle than the 770, no comparison. The 788s were not pretty but they could flat out shoot. Dollar for dollar I just don't think the 770 is a good choice. There are Savages and Marlins that will shoot better.

I was given a 770 for Christmas two years ago by my wife. It is chambered in 243. I love this rifle. It suits my needs perfectly. You are delusional if you buy a cheaper model of gun thinking your going to make kill shoots at 1000 yards. I can tell it is made cheaper than the 700 but it shoots consistent groups at three hundred yards and fires every time I pull the trigger. If it does those two things then what do you have to complain about. I really enjoy the gun. I am teaching both my boys to shoot with it. It fulfills it's intended purpose perfectly. If some one is in the market for an affordable knock around gun this is what I would recommend. Again I do believe this gun fulfills what Remington intended it to do. A cheap entry level gun. I will be honest my wife asked what I wanted and I just told her a caliber. I would not have bought this gun myself originally. But now that I have one and I see how well it performs I am very impressed.

i believe you are refering to the M798 and M799. they were actually barreled Mauser 98 type actions imported from Serbia by a company called Zastava Arms to Remington for assembly, then rollmarked imported by remington on them. remington discontinued them about 2008.

the 798 was built like a true Muaser with controlled feed and offered in most calibers. the 799 was call a "mini-mauser" and was a scaled down version of the 98 action but didn't have the controlled feed system. it was made for calibers like the 223 and 22 hornet.

shame they dropped these, as they were lightyears ahead of the M770. remington also had the Spartan line of shotguns, made in Russia for them and imported. they had an SxS, an O/U and a single shot.

Ya and are a marvel to work on. They have alot of mauser and remington trademarks combined.
