remington model 770

i was recently out of town visiting an old friend who had won this remington model 770 chambered in 270 in some kind of raffle. he asks me if i want to buy it from him for 200 bucks, and the gun is worth six or seven hundred. to make a long story short i couldnt pass up a brand new still in the box never shot 270. so obviously i bought the gun and i love it already even though i still havent shot it. but i was just wondering what you fellas think about the rifle as a whole????

DONT HURT EM.... HOYT EM!!!

This rifle is advertised on the Remington website as a "starter" rifle. It could be bought with a bore-sighted Bushnell scope for a MSRP of $540, or with no scope for $460 (usually gun shops sell at a price below the MSRP). The difference in price, $80, suggests that the scope is a very low-end model. The rifle does not have some of the standard features of their high-end models, like the X-Mark Pro trigger (adjustable), etc., but by getting this stainless synthetic/camo rifle for $200 in the .270, even without a scope, as Howie Mandel would say, "You made a great deal!"

Hey, I made a mistake with my math in my post (which I have edited) - the difference in the MSRP for that rifle with the scope or without the scope is only $80. That can't be a very good scope. My suggestion, sell the scope for what ever you can get for it and get yourself a better one. You'll still have a great deal.

Ive got one. Its actually a very decent weapon. Not top of the line by any stretch of the imagination but its defenatly a decent hunting or starter rifle. It'll do the job. The actual design and makeup of the weapon is identical to the Remington 710 if youre familiar with that. The 770 just comes with the bore sighted scope. It is a fairly cheap scope tho its a 3-9x40mm Bushnell you can get for 50 bucks on optics planet. Like I said, not top of the line, but it does the job. Ive got the 30-06 and its accurate.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
