The pickings are quite slim with others.

The point is, you buy or change what you need to make the gun work the way you want it to no matter what brand name it is and no matter the part.

You shouldn't be expecting a factory rifle to come straight out of the box and do 100% of what you want especially at our a higher than normal performance expectations.
my problem is if i buy a rifle with an adjustable trigger but it is defective and doesn't adjust at all, having a company rep tell me i should just buy an aftermarket trigger isnt what i would call good customer service. it's not that the trigger wouldn't adjust to my liking it's that it doesnt adjust at all

Re: Remington 700 quality

my new 700 SPS 7 mag is built like a remington 770 IMHO. No joke! I had a 30yrd old 700 LA 30.06 and it was smoother and better quality than my 2011 model i bought. :(

Re: Remington 700 quality

I have owned alot of remingtons and other brand rifles. By far the remington will hands down outshoot any rifle i've owned out the box. In todays economy alot of people cant aford high end guns. Thats why all the gun companys are makeing cheaper guns.

Re: Remington 700 quality

I had a rem 700 sps varmint .308 with a B/C medalist stock on it. When I did my part it would shoot sub 1/2 moa with my handloads and easily 3/4 with Fed GMM 168s out to 200 yds. By the time load development was over I had decided to give the gun to my brother as a wedding present. My Sav. 110 with a custom barrel in 6.5 284 has yet to impress me over what a remington with a factory barrel can do. I do like the ability modify my savage without having to take it to a smith but I sure do miss my remington. just my 2 cents

Re: Remington 700 quality

I didn't get in on the Poll but I bought my first Remington about a month ago and couldn't be happier! The most accurate rifle factory rifle in my inventory. First range trip, it printed a 3-shot 1/2" group. It is a 300 Win Mag from Cabelas; their BDl, Fluted model in 300 Win Mag. Hope their quality is good; planing on adding more Remingtons in the future.

Re: Remington 700 quality

I just bought a 700p in 308 & paid through the nose for it. Brand new, I had to re bed, re crown & do a trigger job. Trigger practicley had to hit it with a hammer to make it break." I hate to exaggerate" Recomended retail in Australia is $1700 + or - .Can you believe that?
