Re: Thoughts on the Remington 788
[ QUOTE ]
This rifle didn't come with a magazine (not that big of an issue) so I will likely made an aluminum or walnut insert to set the rifle up as a single shot.

It is pretty common to find used 788's sans magazine. The release catch is located on the bottom rear of the mag right in front of the trigger guard and it is easy to bump and lose your mag. I got mine in the early 90's at the Tulsa gun show for $190 and went a couple of isles over and got a new mag for $10. Around here 788's typically now go for $300-400. I would love to find a .223 (or .222) cheap. Those calibers typically shoot incredible with nothing other than a trigger job.
The 30BR single shot sounds neat. Keep us posted on how it shoots!
