Re: NEW Remington 783
-beyond ugly stock
It has the trifecta of budget rifle grandeur! Its like a savage axis with an accutrigger with an "R" on the bolt handle.
I guess its good to see all these budget minded rifles coming out. Must be the companies trying to keep sales numbers going despite shrinking expendable income. Picked up a savage axis for my grandfather for a kick around truck gun (he is harder on guns than a 16 year old on rear tires in a camaro). Somehow I don't think these budget axis/americans/783's are going to garner the cult following that the Stevens 200 cultivated. But they do serve a portion of the firearms industry.
As for me, hopefully made my last factory bolt rifle purchase. The next will definitely be a 1 off custom; time to budget for rifles instead of buying budget minded rifles.
Just out of curiosity, could we get a pic of the ruger american, savage axis, and rem 783 lined up. It could be like a contest of the ugliest plastic stock in the industry. Could have a poll, and then have dramatic entrance from the tc dimension to take the gold as a write in candidate.
