Anyone care to opine on a 7600?

Postby TNBillyEarl » Wed Jan 22, 2020 4:26 pm

I'm about to pick one up to use for my primary deer rifle. Can you talk me off it?

Nope, I have a 760 30-06 and it is as accurate as a bolt. No mistake buying a pump rifle!

It uses the same fire control as an 870 or 1100 which isn't ideal for a rifle.

To close out this thread - I picked a 1986 BDL model 7600 a few weeks back. I put in a shorter sear spring, put on a 2 piece set of Talley ring/mounts, a butt pad, a cheek riser, and a fixed 4x. Infoman Jr is right about the safety - I find that I don't instinctively use the safety on this gun like I do my shotguns. Odd. And it isn't ideal, but is something other safety skills should trump. I had 4 different boxes/makers/grains of .30-06 laying around. This morning I found out this old gun shoots 165g Core-Lokts at 1". It handles like a cross b/t a Wingmaster and a Model 7. And it is so much quicker with a follow-up than my bolt actions. I'm thrilled to take it out this November. I might even try and find another in this good of shape for my son.

I’ve mounted many scopes on Remington 760/7600 rifles and zeroed the scopes for them and never had one that wasn’t
accurate. A friend of mine has one in 35 Whelen that is accurate beyond belief. He will not sell it. No matter the caliber
They all were accurate.

165g shot 1"

180g shoot better...

I’ve got one in .270. I love it. It handles like a small carbine and is very accurate.
