I have a 760 rem that due to a fall I ended up installing 7600 stocks on it. It is a great accurate rifle. It was my first rifle purchase back in 1973. It has a Redfield 3x9x40 widefield scope on it. Perfect deer getting machine!

Default Just don't work that action softly...

One of my friend's Dad missed the Huge Buck of his life using his Remington 760 in 270. The story goes that they were out in the woods early that morning and he had eased a round into the chamber. At the shot he got a click instead of a bang. There was a round in the chamber but no primer strike on the round. The bolt had not rotated quite far enough to allow the rifle to fire. Todd said after that when his Dad chambered a round you could hear it quite a ways off. They are a great choice if you also use a pump action shotgun. I have noticed that some of the Remington 7600s have a noisy rattle in the forearm that might drive you crazy.

yup you want to chamber a round solidly which does make some noise but I've never had any issues with mine except dragging bucks. Never have shot a doe with that rifle?????

Default Rem 7600 Carbine w/18.5 inch in 30-06

I personally have wanted a wood stocked carbine for a long time. They don't show it in the current list of offerings now from the factory. I always wondered why they don't put sling swivels on the pump actions the 7400 autos also didn't have them. The new model 750 has them but they haven't moved this new style stock to the pump actions yet. Obviously the forearm would need to be modified to work the pump action.

I got mine a few years ago in .270. Just had to have a pump rifle which is unique. The gun did not fit me well. I was struggling to reach the crappy trigger so I cut back the stock 1" and added a good Sims recoil pad. I also modified the trigger to 3.5# as it was almost 8#. Shooting Nosler 130 ballistic tips I can shoot 1" groups at 100 yards with a 3x9 scope. I seen value in the gun so I elected to mod it. It's a favored rifle in Northern New England area especially in 30-06. There are more accurate guns however it is a fine hunting rifle full of heritage.

I will never sell off my 760 30-06 it is plenty accurate, carries a Redfield Widefield 3x9x40, great to shoot for me having grown up with pump shotguns for ducks and geese and it was my first rifle purchase back in 1974 I think. Memory seems to fade over the years. I like the 7600 stocks better than the 760 heavy ones, just looks sleeker. Remington sent me a nice matching set after I fell and broke the origional butt stock. I have a nice 760 forearm if anyone is in need of one, just cover shipping plus $5.00.
