I have a rem 700 and enjoy it. My friend has the 770 and well, he wishes he didn't buy it.

Never shot a 770, but I have a Remington 760 that is a pump in .270 cal. I got it front my Grandfather and its been a great gun, its 30 years old and other than the finish wearing off its a great rifle.

Go with a Savage for the money.

That 760 pump, and the 770 have absolutely nothing in common other than the name.

The 770 as mentioned is a piece of junk. A friend hunts with one and the trigger is horrible, the bolt is extremely sloppy, the bolt tends to stick and then if you pull on it hard it will pop out of the gun, overall, it's just a piece of junk.

Go with the Savage 110/111 for not much more. It's 50x the gun. If you can't swing that, you should be able to pick up a Savage Axis or Ruger American in the same price range as the 770 that are also much better guns.

I would agree with others. I have always been a Remington guy, but in the case of the 770, I would stay away. I have heard that they used a lot of plastic internal parts to keep the cost down. Like others have mention, I would look at Savage. My father loves his 110 in 270. The Savage A 11/111 Trophy combo would be a good package for the price, but it is a bit more than the 770 Whitetail Pro, which I am assuming is the deal that Bass Pro runs. If I wanted to stay in that price range, I would look at the Savage Axis, which I have seen several favorable reviews for the money.

The 770 is definitely poorly made but I bought mine brand new for $199 an after getting the trigger lightened and the bolt smoothed out it's not a bad gun. With that said I would not recommend this gun without getting that done to it. Once that is done it shoots just fine although I won't ever tote it over my browning!
