you got it exactly right JP. you know i am a fan of the M700, but also i realize that it's not the only or best bolt action rifle ever made. but it is a good design and they have sold boat loads of them since they came out in 1962. the military and LE still use them. if they were such poor performing rifles with all the problems that the internet myths say the have, does a person with common sense think the military and LE would still be buying and using them? i seriously doubt it.
yep, over ten years later and these internet rumors and myths are still floating around. simply amazing.
