Some say they shoot good. I would deside on one as to how much
it would be used. Personaly I do not like or want one. I think
they are cheap made. My advise is to save a little more and
get a better gun.

Just my opinion.

I would buy a used gun first before a 710.

I agree, find her a used 700 if money is tight, or a new 700 if it isn`t.

yup, agree with above. You can still get new 700 ADL's with synthetic stocks out there for $300- $325.

The 710 was another one of Remington's screw-up's they've managed to make in the past few years.

My father inlaw had one. Shot great but it was cheap made. Alot of parts are plastic. He sold it. But for the price it maybe what u are looking for.

The local Walmarts that still sell guns have their ADL composites with a clean barrel for $325. I previously owned a walnut ADL, and later a composite ADL, and the earlier walnut version was far slicker. The composite's action was kinda "raspy" if you know what I mean. This can be improved upon somewhat by honing, and/or polishing. Also, the stock was hollow and very loud to the touch(thump). I solved that by filling the hollow space with compacted cardboard. IMO still a better built rifle and therefore a better buy than the 710, as are even the bottom of the line Savage/Stevens rifles. I like those for the money.

It's not just because I'm not a big Remington fan,but find her something else she can be proud of. Theres alot of really good guns out there for the same price. I find used ADLs for really good prices.

I've always been a browning man,
Until i bought this rem. model 7.
I still like my brownings but i believe
this little rem. will shoot a tad bit better.

Model 7, 7mm-08.

Deal gets better and better. Was in there Monday(Walmart), and they(ADL's) are now $300. I know that Gander is pricy(previous posts) but they have a house full of 710's for $319. IMO, there isn't any comparison between the bottom of the line 700 and the 710. Cheaper and better.
