I found a Remington 760 pump on Gunbroker in .358 Winchester. Trouble is Remington never chambered a 760 in .358 Winchester.

I'm not breathless about the price, nor am I breathless about the way they ground metal off the barrel to re stamp it .358 Winchester.
I have no idea who did the work, but a gunsmith and a phone number is listed for questions.

Agreed. The date code I was able to enlarge and it was manufactured June 1979, the last year of the 760 production and only one out of the 5 years that they made a .35 Remington 760 CARBINE.

Records from the old Remington site before they went under indicated only a total of 454 760 Carbines in .35 Remington were produced in total. so if that gun was truly a CARBINE, in .35 Remington and someone butchered it like that to make it a .358 Winchester, that would be a sin. Even if not a true Carbine, a standard 760 in .35 Remington in good to excellent condition is worth $1200 or a little better today.

However, I've yet to see a true Carbine for sale where the seller didn't show the "CARBINE" stamp on the barrel and this guy did not show the section of the barrel where "CARBINE" is stamped so I'm thinking it's a 22 inch standard model lopped down to 18 & 1/2 inches.
If it was a true .35 Remington Carbine and it was unaltered he prolly could have added about 3 grand to his asking price before he butchered it up.

I certainly don't mind the grind/stamp. But for the love of Christ they can keep that f'r for that money.

the 760 carbines in 35 rem were only produced until about 64 or 65. that 358 with the hideous ground down stamp is not even an original carbine from what i saw. no CARBINE on the left side of barrel. it could have been a 35 rifle, since 79 was the last year for those. but with that grinder job its hard to tell. as soon as i saw that i immediately wondered about the quality of the rest of the conversion. hideous.

I thought using one of those was considered cultural appropriation unless you were a Hutterite, Mennonite, or Amish. No?

In factory ammo I like Remington brand with the 200 grain roundnose core lokt bullets. But of course since all of the big 3 ammo makers only do seasonal runs on .35 Remington, you take what you can get, shoot it up and reload it.

The 35 guys over at Marlinowners.com claim that Hornady 200 grain roundnose bullets are to hard for .35 Rem velocities and they don't open up, they say the Sierras are better, and most will say that the 200 grain roundnose Remington core lokt is the best bullet of all in the .35 Rem, either in factory ammo or as a reloading proposition if you can find the bullets.

I too have some older .35 Rem ammo, I think from the late 50's, early 60's, look at the prices on them.

I doubt those cultures want a 760, known in Pa as the "Amish machine gun" in .35 Rem., way to hard to find ammunition.

They tend to prefer a 760/7600 in 30-06 and use the 10 round aftermarket magazines.

Nice pick up. The 200 CL has long been considered the standard. My dad used a 35 forever in the 336. He always loaded a Herters 200 RN over 3031.

I know what culture I'm part of and where I belong but at 66 I'd like to experience a few things outside of where my normal interest is while I still can or want to. That ok? Mb

RedRyders were the BB gun to have but I ended up with a Daisy25 when I was 8yo. Started long time love of pumpguns. 572 Remington for 10th birthday accounted for lots of squirrels and rabbits. 742 semi in 280Remington when I was 16. Carried and hunted it for years. Finally reached the round count where the chattering of the receiver rails had me put it aside. After sitting idle for many years I collected all the parts and converted it to a pump. Like it even more now. Companion to a Model 14 in 32 Rem and a 141 in 35Rem.

What the eff is a hutterite? Sounds like people way too into Star Wars worshipping Jabba the Hutt.

On-topic. I used a 7600 in .270 for several years in MN. Slick handling and accurate, but the stock used to crack me right in the cheekbone something terrible. I sent it down the river after looking like I got punched in the face one too many times.

i find those to be pretty much the same as the corelokts in my guns and have a bunch. they'll kill a deer no problem and shoot to the same POI.

Thanks finally got a magazine that works in the gun. I had 3 remington 150 grain loads , they shot a 1" group at 50 yds about 7" left so a drifting of the sights was next. After 2 adjustments I have 200 grain power pts hitting 1.5" high at 50 yards and that is as low as the rear sight will go. It should be ready for some deer hunting. Mb

I put a 1.5-6 leupold on the rifle I picked up a few months ago. Loaded some 150 NBT's moderately and 1.75 high at a 100 is on the money at 200. It is ready to go.

I have always thought the 760/7600 types were handy rifles. A few months ago, I ran across a Model Six, 30-06, in Very good condition. I could not pass it up. By the date code, it appears to be 2nd month / 2nd year of production. I have not shot it yet, and will be quite sometime before I do. A shoulder issue, but look forward to shooting it. I agree, very easy carrying rifle.
