Re: Is Remington's 700 Action Still the Best?

Remington never was the best and still is not. They are easy for gunsmiths to work on and get aftermarket parts for and that is a good thing because you need them. After a good bit of work they can be made to shoot great. You must determine what you mean as best. They may be the best to carry to a gunsmith because most are very familiar with them and the aftermarket parts. Or do you define best as the best action out of the box which the 700 is certainly not. Like was said earlier some cuctoms are designed close enough to the 700 so most aftermarket parts will fit, not neccesarily because it is the best.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future

Re: Is Remington's 700 Action Still the Best?

"... is the Remington 700 still the best "out of the box" action?"

Yes, without a doubt. But, with qualifiers.

It's the best out of the box American sporter rifle from the major makers. It ain't a Kimber, Sako, etc. but those do tend to cost a mite more than a 700, and for very little benefit in the field.

So, "best" depends a whole lot on what you really want. I'm satisfied with my 700 deer rifel (But I would love to have a Kimber and I do love my Sako varmint rifle!)
