Why would you even want to is my question. The 770 is ahhhh nevermind. To many bad thoughts so just forget it there is no such thing as a 770 so move on people, nuthin to read here, move on now.

Lets put it this way-iv snapped the receiver off from 3 of their barrels w my bare hands and knee. I can break the receiver in half w the bolt lengthwise, oh and the are minute of pie plate-barely-at 100 yards as a general rule. So as muliemaster said-why in Mulie's green little men would you want to shoot one????

I picked up the Axis in 30-06 with the low end Bushnell scope and I am mostly pleased. After mounting a bi-pod on it and taking it to the range I was able to get it zeroed and shooting sub-moa within a few rounds- then I proceeded to put 150 rounds through it. I have 1 issue with it: I think I need a stronger magazine spring because about 25% of the time the bolt will fail to strip the second round in the magazine and about 50% of the time it will only catch the edge of the last round, resulting in a jam. Annoying, but it should be fixable.
