Default Rarest Model 7600 caliber

Of all the Remington Model 7600 rifles produced, which model 7600 is the rarest in terms of fewest Model 7600 rifles chambered in that caliber ?

I'm going to hazard a guess that it's the oft fabled .223 7600

I would assume you also include the model 760. If so it would be the 223 ( as "krochus" said ) along with the 222, 257 Roberts & the 244 ( before going to 6mm Rem).

When did Remington make the Model 7600 or 760 in 223 and 222 ?

Somebody is talking retarded here.

A 760 is not a 7600, can't you people read.

The most desirable ones - fewest number made were the 30 / 06 Anniversary Editions 100 years,
They made 250 of them.

They also made 300 - 300 Savage 7600 Rifles this year, rumor has it that all 300 of them went to Grice Gun Shop in Clearfield PA.

Remington also came out with a special 50th anniversary of the 280 Remington 7600 this year, only 500 of them were produced.

This is really the only time that the 7600 guns were numbered since they came out around 19 years ago.

When Remington ran the 30/06 Anniversary model, they also produced limited runs of non-cataloged calibers. Bill Hicks had a run of 500 ea of the .270, and .280 models. I know, 'cause I have an "unfired" .270 still in the box. Joe

You all wrong! Rarest caliber in 7600 is 7mm-08 Remington and .260 Remington! 6mm Remington is behind.

I have one in .35 Whelen that I got from Grice gun shop a year or two ago. It isn't rare, but it sure does the job on deer and black bear!

Gamemaster:

Don't think you need to be calling anyone retarded. And yes I do know what the difference is between a 760 & a 7600. I own both. Probably the Limited Grice guns are the fewest made in the 7600. Like my 7600 in 7mm-08 from mid 90's.
Lets keep things civil around here ok.
