That Model 600 was before its time. Now, there are lots of short, light rifles. I have one in .308 that now wears a composite stock. It weighs six pounds with scope and sling. It is a sub-minute shooter on the days that I do my part. It has killed several deer and a couple of elk.

Re: 6mm remington

The stock is pure trash and that plastic rib is not too great either. I left the rib on and took the sights off of mine. Taking the rib off just leaves holes that have to be plugged. The action and barrel are great, though.

I would not mind putting a heavier barrel on mine at some point, though.

Yea, i did the same with the sights. The rib should have been omitted or metal in my opinion. We lopped 3" off the stock and added a thick pad so my son could handle it better. Ive read any Rem 700 stock could be used.

Re: 6mm remington

they made a metal aftermarket trigger guard for them as well .The plastic on them left a lot to be desired . Great shooting and handy rifles.
