I am a Remington lover from way back, and have a gun cabinet and safe nearly full of Remingtons, or customs built on Remingtons. I bought a new CDL in November, and was very disappointed with it. It found another zip code. The quality was aweful, and it shot that way too. Now, as far as the Tikkas, they are shooters, and quality is awesome. I do not own one, but there is one on my radar screen. Actions are smooth, barrels are smooth, and they shoot. I would go with the Tikka. If you are talking used, now, the older Remys are shooters still, and there are some good ones out there.
