    What is the difference between Remington's 700 and 770 model rifles?

    700 is a pretty nice rifle
    770 is OH GOD DO NOT WANT WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

    Pick them both up in a gun store, the difference is very obvious and immediately apparent

    If you can't afford a 700, buy a savage

    The 700 barrel is threaded into the receiver and the 770 is press fit into the receiver. The 700 is worth every extra penny over their value line 770's.

    The 770 is a fine rifle. Will shoot great for you. But, if you ever want to wrench on it, like a better barrel, stock, or different scope mount, then the 700 is what you will want. JPG

    770 will have very little re-sale value.

    Spend the extra money and get the 700, otherwise get a Savage.

    Friend of mine has a 770, it's accurate and has been a good gun for as long as he has had it, a few years. He also admits that every other one he has seen has been a cheap POS that gets returned. He works at a gun counter at a local store.

    Get a Savage, or a Stevens if you are on a budget, a Weatherby Vanguard or 700. I love my 700, but it is not nearly as accurate as my Stevens 200 was and at almost triple the price.

    All I have heard about the 770's is bad experiences. Bi-mart right now has the savage 11 packages for $329 swap the bushnell scope when you get the money. Good deal on a good gun.
