I like the price.

Does anyone know if part of the receiver is plastic like the R770 or is it metal?

Metal. I have it in 30-06 can hit ten inch steel at 1000

So no plastic around the bolt? Yay.:p

May have to look at one, how would you say it stacks up to a R700?

Can the bolt be cycled quickly? Is it smooth?

Cock on open or on close?

Its a very smooth rifle i wouldnt say its better than a 700 but i have my 700 in .308 so i cant really compare. Put some good glass on it and youll love it. They also send you a free shell holder/cheek riser. But make sure you break it in properly to seat that nut. Idk i like it..but its my first 30/06 if you dont count my garand that i never shoot :/

One last question that I probably already know the answer to.

Does it come in a cardboard box or a hardcase?

A beautiful box ;)
