    Some will say that the 770 is nice for a first gun, but I will tell you to steer clear. A savage axis or marlin x7 or a ruger American would be way better.

    It will shoot. It might be accurate or it might not. You will get better over all quality with the Ruger American, Savage Axis, Marlin XR/XL7.

    I wouldn't take a Remington 770 if it was given to me,they are a complete junk rifle. Don't waste your money on one.

    770 have had a bad rep, lately.

    There's a lot of better stuff out there.

    I am a Remington man but I bought a 770 for my sons first deer rifle and it was crap. I sold it and bought the Ruger American in .243 and that is a dandy little rifle.

    Paid 300 for my .270 and never had a problem with it. Alot of these people seem to have problems with sticky bolts and such. Mine was never an issue. Stock scope isn't the greatest either. But for $300 I think I got a good rifle. Not saying its the greatest out there and I probably could have found an American for that price but oh well.

    I've got a 770 and I enjoy it. With factory ammunition I can get just under MOA, with reloads I can get a little under 1/2 MOA. Do I like my rifle, of course I do. I've had it for a little over a year and some now.

    Do I recommend picking up one? That's entirely up to you right now. Mine was honestly an impulse buy so I didn't waste a 5 hour round trip. If I had known all the issues people have with it, I honestly don't think I would of boughten it. I'm glad I did though, got my first and second coyote with it.

    I had issues with my bolt sticking and I could never shoot less than a 3-3 1/2" group at 100 yds.

    It has been rumored to have problems sometimes and is considered low quality by many....Go with Savage

    I know when he said sticky he meant the 770. That's all I ever here when I say that. Then I say here pop mine on back and it's like a different story

    Have two buddy's that bought the 770's, because of the price,,,,,,, one traded it off in less than a year, the other is not his go to rifle. He leaves it behind the truck seat as a backup camp gun. I'm with the rest of the group here,,,,,,, check into some used rifles, or new ones that were spoken about before. I spent I think for a Savage 110 in 270win all for $300.00 + They can be found, ya just gotta look. By the way that Savage 110 shot under an inch @ 100 yards.

    No sir! That was the 770. The only complaint @ the American so far is the stinking price of that second magazine I want.
