That’s the next economy version of the 700. Better than the 770 by all reports but still gimped a bit. The bolt handle is plastic, for example.
I just bought the thing because it was suppose to be an improvment. My decision had nothing to with price. Hell, four years ago I was on a spree with Springfield M1A’s, Kimbers, Benelli, etc.
I only cared about performance, reliability and dependability.
Didn’t really get a good deal on the 770. Next time I’ll hold the damn things and run through the items important to me before I plunk down some loot.
Maybe I’ll look into a 700 instead.
