Savage or Marlin X7 rifle for me. I'm just not a Mossberg guy. The TC Venture bolt actions rifles are around $450 and they're MOA guaranteed, sounds like a great value.

Not a big fan of any of these rifles. But, I have handled a T/C Venture and thought it was an absolute P O S ! Of the rifles mentioned here, the Marlin has has WAY, WAY, WAY, more good things said about it than the others.

Best of luck with whatever you get!

Me, I'd look for an older, post '64 Win or M700 Rem USED!

I have recommended the Marlin XL7 to several with good feedback

My neibor bought a couple of the Mossberg bolt actions for his kids and they are satisfied with them. Personally I think that you get a better deal with the Marlin XL7. You get a good action, good barrel, and a clean trigger. That is all you have to have for it to perform well. I would get one of the ones that has a scope base with multiple forward ring positions on it. The barrel attaches similar to what Savage uses on their 110 action. Their version of the accutrigger is again a copy of the Savage trigger. The rifle has a blind magazine, it isn't as handy as a dropping floor plate but if they had to cut cost that is not a bad place to safe some. I really think for the price of around 300.xx nothing can touch it. I was just reading a comparison in I Shooting Times of six entry level rifles <500 list price.
The two they wouldn't buy with their own money were the Remington 770 and the Savage Axis.

Hi Mossberg 4x4 270 owner..

You have run into the problem of a bad scope. I would bet that this came with the Rifle as package. These packages add a scope for almost nothing because that is what they are worth, nothing. If you can pull together about 150 dollars you will be able to buy one that will last a lifetime. I really like the Redfield Revolutions, or the Nikons. There are better scopes available then these but you will get 90% of the quality for 33% of the price.
