Well I'll be dipped...Fell into a 7600 .35 Whalen last night after work. Went in to look at a really nice 760 I've had my eye on for a few months. The shop had about 5 760's of various quality, and 2 new 7600's, just a few weeks ago. I swung in yesterday to find them all gone. Counter guy asked if he could help and we got to talking about how fast they disappeared. He said I got one on trade today that I haven't put out yet.

He brings out a hellova nice 7600. I was ready to buy it anyway because I wanted a 30-06 and assumed it was chambered as such. He said, "it may be tough to sell because it's a 35 Whelen." I told him "it won't be too tough, I'll take it." grin

I can't imagine it's been fired much, if at all. No swivels have been installed and the factory scope mount plug screws are still in it. It is one of the dumbass J-lock models but I think that can be fixed right?


Just one more draw and we should see the trucks.

Nice score, Tom.
You can always swap out the trigger assembly if the J-lock makes your skin crawl.

It kinda does. But we'll see.

The real question is about that recoil pad we talked about.

Shouldn't be much of an issue unless you're compelled to muscle-up to 250gr - things'll get sporty then. laugh

I had one when I was in Kodiak. It's not too uncomfortable. Mine was just stupid accurate with factory ammo and the few handloads I tried. The Factory 225 Trophy Bonded Bear Claw was a serious penetrator on deer. In front left shoulder and out right ham.

Anyone know where I can find a 30-06 magazine for $50 or less? I finally found the 1968 version I was looking for but it came without the magazine. Any help would be appreciated.


Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

Bought 1 and waiting on another to let me know his preferred method of payment so I can snag it up.

My LGS might have a used mag laying around.

My '63 has a 35 rem marked mag.
Got a newer.243 mag as a spare, works fine (contrary to what was stated on a couple forums).

LOL

I had much better luck with my 35 760 using a 30-06 style mag than I did the 35 or short action ones. I'm not sure why but it worked better. A lot better.

My ex father in law used to have a 7600 in 243. He had 3 mag and one of those was always binding up.

I kept telling him to toss that fugger or mark it so he wasn't trying to hunt with it.

He had a nice buck come slipping through one morning, missed the first shot and never got a follow up, his nice little 7600 slide action repeater had become a single shot.

I met up w him on the pond dam and told him the best place for that mag was in the pond. All I got was a dumb look.

Some people.
