Re: how to determine if Remington 788 .243 is long/short action?
All Remington 788's are short action. Currently have 223, 243, 7mm-o8 and 308's sitting in the safe. Never met one I didn't like. Never had one that would not just plain shoot. First MOA rifles I ever owned. Handloads I can get under 1/2 consistantly. Great little rifles. Make fun projects for stripping stocks and refinishing. Actually beautiful rifles with a hand rubbed oil finish.
