Default Newer Remington 7600 review

Anyone have any experience with the newer remington 7600 carbines? Are they as good as the older ones were?

My dads was bought new in 1994, and it's a great shooting gun. A .30-06. He's shot a pile of deer with it, all with core lokt 180gr.


Don't know about the new ones. But that rifle is a good one.

The older ones were actually the 760 carbines and some had a straight stock not made for a scope. If you wanted to have a "Benoit" style big woods gun with peep sights then retrofitting the 7600 with a straight stock will make the gun similar to the old 760. I fitted mine with a matching Remington shotgun stock and it turned out great. The gun shoots great and without a scope is a joy to carry while hunting the rugged mountains of northern VT and New Hampshire.

How is the accuracy and reliability on these newer ones? I handled one at gander mountain and they felt "solid" but not as solid as the older ones. But the older ones I've shot and handled had a wood stock and the 30-06 carbine I handled had a synthetic stock on it.

I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I had to get on the website to check, but you're correct. no sling studs. I emailed remington to ask about this. Interested to see how/if they respond.

You want sling studs?
Buy some.
Not everybody hunts, and some find studs in every freakin' gun to be less than cool.
I got a Sportsman 58 with killer wood, 20 ga............obviously somebody grouse hunted with it..............they put studs in everything.
Ruined the gun IMHO.
Seen many an 870 Special Field jacked up as well.

But on the 7600............Uncle Mikes/Grovetec............sells a 760/7600 kit. Barrel band for the front, stud for the rear.
Wood stocks..........no studs. Synth stocks may not either..........but the buttstock should have a bushing for a stud.

I have seen 7400 and 7600 without high comb wood. Think they were new too. Of course people could swap em around. The rifle sights are high enough on the Remingtons...........you can run them with the high comb stock unless you're freakishly built. The comb does help, but it aint that high IMHO

Of course if it's too low you could swap in a taller front and move the rear up a bit if it's not maxed out for your load.

180's. Work. Deer aint that big in most areas. Use 150's. Less recoil.
Doesn't matter on a 760 but too many run 180-200gr stuff in 742's and that shortens the life of those rigs. 150's will extend it.

Nice to have ammo more than one person can run in camp.
