    ryno, there is a big difference between the two. nothing will interchange as they are two completely different actions. the 770, the bolt is sloppy, the trigger is heavy and feels gritty, the triggerguard is molded into the stock, and the it and finish is crappy. i had one once, couldn't wait to get rid of it. if you have to, save up a little more and buy the M700 instead, way better rifle. if your budget only allows that price range, check out the Savage Axis, the Stevens 200, or the Marlin X7 series of rifles. much better in the long run.

    Thanx axxe. I am saving for a r700. Was just curious. I had a 700 once but had to get rid of it and now really miss it. Didn't get to learn much about them then and Getn more into it now. I like the options you have with a 700 and mainly the reliability factor. I wanna build it so that's y I was asking about the "Actions".
    Do you know nething about the Browning A bolt? Just starting to look at those too.

    the browning rifles are very good rifles and are probaby a little more expensive than the remingtons. if you are looking to build of the M700 action, check out Brownells website for bare remington M700 actions for sale. this was the way i went for my custom rifle build. if this is an option that appeals to you, have your LGS or gun dealer order it from Brownells for you, when it comes in, go fill out the paperwork and your on your way to building a rifle. i will provide as much information as needed if you want more about it.

    Brownells doesn't have any. How much did you pay for yours? The action that is? I need the long action for 30.06 rite? Thanx

    The only comment I have is that I have never heard anything good about the Remington 770 from anybody who has one. I know a bunch of people bought them because they were a lot cheaper than the 700s and other popular rifles, but they are not getting good reviews. Ammo is going to cost the same no matter what rifle it is shot through, so why not spend a little more and get one that would shoot better? To each his own, your money, your gun.

    I picked up a Remington 770 a couple weeks ago for $280 OTD. I am not a big deer hunter but I did not want to be restricted to a shotgun for the once or twice a year that I go. It came with a bore sighted bushnell scope. I shot 40 rounds through it last weekend and I believe it's a fine rifle for what it is. And what it is, is a cheap entry level rifle. I was drilling 3" groups at 150 yards, I know that is not a long ways out, but it will fit me needs. It's not a top quality firearm, but it seems fairly accurate and goes boom when the trigger is pulled. Mine is a .308 BTW.

    as long as you understand it's limitations and only use it a few times a year to hunt, then all should be fine. if one of my M700's had a 3" group at 150 yards, i would swear the barrel was bent!:eek:

    Thats a no ****ter the 710 is a disgrace to remington, I fully understand the budget rifle, so does Marlin, savage,weatherby, just to name a few u dont have to by a **** rifle becouse of a budget. Imho marlin x7 rifles hands down beat the others in the budget gun field, Im not even sure really why they call it a entry level rifle when match dollar for dollar, fit, quality, an even has a adjustable trigger, BINGO AN MARLIN IS ITS NAME O

    this summer i was looking into getting a new rifle to hunt with because i sold my howa 1500 in 270wsm to buy an engagement ring last winter. my father in law had a 770 in 30-06 and i wanted to see what i thought of it because im still on a college students budget and the 770s price appealed to me as did the savage axis, and the marlin x7 and weatherby vanguard. after taking the 770 to the range i debated about throwing it under my jeep and running it over so that noone could ever be subjected to it again. it seemed extremely cheaply made, the action kept binding up on me the stock felt like i could bend it into a circle, and even a 3inch group on it was generous. i ended up buying a remington 721 in 30-06 that was built somewhere around 1948 and had been sitting for a year or two in a friends shop.

    Amen mulie! the 710 and the 770 are the worst guns to ever have the remington name on them. the marlin X7 is way better. i have grown very attached to my marlin's and plan on adding more in the future.

    I went yesterday an picked up my 4th x7 I grabbed the x7vh in 22-250. For optics I went with a nikon 6x18x40 should be perfect for yotes an prarrie dogs. I will fully admit im hooked on the x7series rifles from marlin. They are just hands down to good to pass up.
