Re: Pre-J or Post-J Lock
Remington is still making great guns. Most shoot fine out of the box. The Sendero stocks are made by H-S precision and are great. The J-lock is definitely a bad thing! Don't think so(?), play with one. Don't worry about loosing the keys, cuz you can lock/inlock with fingernail. Think of the endless possibilities in the field [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] Plus the firing pin was changed and now the firing pin spring is a curvy twisty mess, compared to the old ones which layed flat. The good news is that Brownells sells old style replacements. Out of the box, Remington is still your best choice. More aftermarket parts and one of the best (commercial) actions for a custom (later).
