Those rifleguns are wicked sinful worldly! There is actually some colour on them other than flat black. That's Englischer, not plain. laugh

I dig that one.
Not so much the Blue one.
But To each his own.

My 760 was an '06 in BDL
basket pressed checkering and super shiny finish.

Shined like a niggas heel.
I had a Redfield widefield in 3 X 9 on it
And shot the crap out of it.
Always hoping to destroy the finish so I could re-stock it.
( but never did )

Pummped tons of surplus ammo thru it. Even a few tracers.
Lots of AP's
not all non-corrosive. Some would turn it green in a couple hours.

TG for non corrosive primers.

I also planned on re- barreling to .35 Whelen .. but life caught up before I could.

My 7600 is a 7mm-08. My son, Chad, "High Brass" got it for me. Right now it's got a Nikon Monarch 2x7 in Burris Signature Zee rings and a Warne one piece base. I sent it to a guy in Va. and got a trigger job done. I buffed the stock finish with 00 steel wool to give it more of a satin finish.

I bought this 760 30-06 in '77. High Brass owns it now. I removed the whiteline spacers, roughed up the stock finish, and shot three coats of satin polyureathane on it. BTW, that's High Brass' buck.

My Mom had a 742 carbine in 30-06. It shot factory fairly well, but I could not keep 5 of my H4831 reloads inside a paper plate at 100 yds.
Then a I got the bright idea to try some IMR 3031 under the 165 gr ballistic tip. That little carbine started printing 1.5 moa.

Short barrel Remmys can be taught to shoot.
