    skitch: haven't seen one in several years, and I think it was a short action, but I remember that they don't have the anti-bind slot in the bottom locking lug. If it's a long action, and the mag well is 3.7" long, and the trigger is adjustable, I'd say it would be a good candidate for a long range rifle.

    Hope you get more info than this. Tom

    I think the 725 was a long action and the 722 a short action. These actions were replaced by the 700. Really there is not a lot of difference. I have custom built on the 722 and its a tack driver.

    The 725 came after the 721 and 722. They were made in both long and short versions. They were replaced by the 700 in 1961. They are fairly rare and quite collectible if, in mint condition.
