    It`s a good job that Remmys are cheap, cause most of the original gun ends up in the bin !

    That looks a very cool gun bud

    haha, your absolutely right .. . . I always think standard remingtons are a bit like marmite, you either love them or hate them.

    Decent enough actions but i'm struggling to think of anything much else I like about them.

    Glad you got it as you want it !

    I have a 722 in 222 also !

    Mine was purchased new by my maternal grnadfather in 1958 . When he passed it came to me along with a Weaver K-10 he also bought at the same time in Weaver mounts .

    I carefully removed the scope and placed it in the safe . Worked the trigger down to 12 ounces , shimmed the action up in the stock so the barrel was free floated then took it out and shot several 1/4" 3 shot groups at 100 yards . Oh I also mounted a 1970's Redfield 6-18 on top .

    Gun suits me as is and can easily be returned to the way I recieved it .

    Having seen it in the metal it is a fine looking rifle , and coming from me who is no a particular remmy fan.
