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

    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?

    I have a Model 77 Stainless Steel, Composite Stock, 3x9 Leopold in 30.06. It is equal to or better than the 6 Winchester and Remington bolt actions / semi's I've owned. Sweet action. Indestructible. Very accurate for me out to 500 yards.

    I got to see one at Sportsman's Warehouse. Did not touch, bad mistake - I would have purchased it, if I touched it. The next day, it was sold!

    Ever shot an m77 mark II. Probably not because honestly that is the best bolt gun I have ever fired. I don't own one because nobody gets rid of them so I can't buy one used. I'm too poor for a new one and I don't trust buying online anyways.

    Yes. Less than impressed. But i can say that about a lot of current production bolt guns winchester and remington included.

    It looks good. The classic 1903 Springfield design.

    The price is good too. About half of what a Remington would cost.

    And it is ready to be drilled and tapped in the usual way.

    These are the most popular calibres too -- 243, 308, 270, and 30-06 in order of increasing power.

    I think the 10/22 is Ruger's best rifle design.

    I handled one a few days ago and it was all I could do not to puke all over the counter. Sorry but.....Fisher Price called and wanted their plastic back. Save your cash and buy something that has at least a couple ounces of steel in it.
