Very effective. I’m not overly sensitive to recoil but the stock on this 760 bothers me. I fired 60 full power rounds last weekend sighting in and practicing and my shoulder was fine.

+1

I had an ancient 16 gauge single shot that my grandad had hacked the barrel down to 18" on, and it was an absolute horror show to shoot anything more than extra light trap loads in.

One of those slip on Limbsavers made the recoil very tolerable, but it did also add about an inch to the LOP, which threw my aim off a bit. They're definitely worth the price if LOP isn't an issue for you.

I use a PAST recoil shield at the range with my 760. In the field the recoil isn't noticed.

Had a shot at 3x3 at 50 yards tonite, looked simple thought what the hell why not. Well not is what happened apparently when I eased the action shut on the 7600 wasn't hard enough to make it go into battery but the trigger pulled and hammer flew but click nada the round is out the in the grass some where. So until I find it I don't know if I got a firing pin strike or not. Anybody else ever had that happen? Mb

They don't like being gingerly operated, at least the 7600 I had didn't. If you didn't slam it home, you were gonna get a FTF every time. The bolt doesn't lock up unless you have some oomph closing it.

Only a novice pump hunter waits till time to shoot to ‘chamber’ a round.

I’ve never had a F T F in any of my pumps over the years.

Well jwall I'm new to 7600's but allways break the action when I climb over a fence. When I sat down in the blind I eased it shut. Won't make that mistake again rest assured. Mb

Those hunters who like the short rem 760 carbine with open sights Larry Benoit style can still buy that. Remington now makes a 7600 but it comes with a raised comb stock suitable for a scope. You can buy a straight shotgun stock from Remington with the same finish as the 7600. It was easy to change out and when you bring the gun up it lines up perfectly with the open sight just like the 760 did.

Great safety practice to have really. Can’t fault a guy for that. But I suspect that was your issue. You’re new to them and if you stick with the gun, I think you’ll really like them. It’s my favorite style. I think experience is the issue here and you learned from it. Slam it home when you crack the action and you’ll be fine.

Good luck to ya.

I’ve been out the last few days with the .35 Whelen, 7600. I’ve had opportunities each sit but have passed. This evening may be the night. smile

The problem is even more exaggerated with the 740/742/7400 semi-automatics. They have to slam home or you got issues. And noisier than the pumps when doing it too.
