Default Remington 600 mohawk ? 243 cal.

I read there was a recall for repair work on the 600's
was it with the A stamped in the serial number or guns recalled without the A ?
this rifle has the A stamped into the first serial number
The rifle is in excellent shape maybe since new less then a box of shells threw it.
I was told it spent it life in the gun safe
The stock has a outstanding grain in walnut

I bought my Mohawk 600 .243 new in 1978 and honestly back then wished I'd had a couple hundred bucks more for a Model 70 XTR or 700 BDL. Even a Model 788 if I could've found one. That ugly short barrel, plastic triggerguard, plain hardwood stock with pressed checkering, ...

But it turned into what's probably deadliest rifle in the battery on deer-sized game and varmints. A dream to carry, even more so if you're in any kind of brush. The short barrel is no handicap at all, having dusted more than a handful of prairie dogs past 400 yards. It's the rifle I most wanted to trade up from back then, the rifle I'd part with last today.

And it never went off when my finger wasn't on the trigger.

Default Rem. 600?

If the price is right you need to buy it. I bought a 600 in the mid 70's.
It was in 6mm Rem. For a short barreled rifle it was extremely accurate
out to about 300yds. It is the only rifle that I have ever owned for which I have "seller's(trader's) remorse". The trigger problem can be solved with an aftermarket if necessary.
GOOD LUCK and GOOD SHOOTING!!!

I drag it to the range to day to see if it a shooter or not
IT IS A SHOOTER
I loaded up some sierra 85 gr HPBT with IMR 4350 38.0 only got to shoot at the 50 Yd range from the bench 5 shot @ you can cover it with a nickle.
I am going to decide if I am going with the nosler BT 95 Gr or Remington 100 CLSP for eastern whitetails
