va rifleman Going to make two assumptions. The working man is not dirt poor and looks at used, American made rifles.

Highest quality bolt gun? That's easy. Remington model 40X and the model 52 Winchester. Timeless classics in walnut and blued steel. The Remington 40X’s were all hand built in the custom shop. When you open and close the bolt on a 40X, it has a bank vault sound. In today's market, the classic rim-fires are often more desirable then the center fires.

They are a cheap design.

Winchester post 64 m70 has more handle displacements than the 700 ever did. Soft soldered dog collar attachment vs. Remington's brazed joint.

D Fischer Defective Walker trigger. I've used defective Walker trigger's for years with no problems at all. Wonder why it took as many years as it did to determine them defective? probably take's a long time to find clueless morons and put rifles in their hands!

I have the wood stock in 308 and agree, best I’ve owned.

land_owner I feel lucky! I bought my 270 caliber Winchester model 70 featherweight in 1990 at a bow Hunters store as a consignment that someone brought in to trade for a compound bow. With its Bausch and Lomb 3 - 9 variable Power Scope, the entire rifle and scope cost me $350 US. I have hauled that rifle for all these years and even with its honest wear and tear I still love that rifle. As I said, I feel lucky!

muddyboots I still have and shoot my Savage 110 .270 Win that I bought in 1968. Just did a barrel swap on it but kept the entire rifle same except for barrel. I haven't used for quite some time since I have some of those big bang magnums but I am finding out the old girl shoots nice and sweet. I plan on using it as primary rifle from now on unless I go back to high country for elk. I still like the big bang magnums for that critter.

You should have added that lightning hit 4 employees that left the store 15 minutes apart on the same night and two of those got ran over by cars on there way home from the hospital.

No, promise it was true. All rifles were quietly sent back to Remington in unmarked boxed. Bolt handles were collected and sent together separately in the other unmarked boxes. This bolt handle shipment was sent from another town by a different shipper. Nearly, half those rifles had broken extractors from the factory. All had the defective Walker trigger. Synthetic stocks were found warped to the point some barrels were actually bent! It was discovered there was a clandestine Libtard invasion by people disguised as workingmen at Remington. It was all a Liberal plot in the name of"gun safety." All this was suppressed and the shop was paid $130,000.00 to keep quiet.

Rushcreek My three older brothers and I came of age in the 1970's in N. Texas. Sons of a farmer and a nurse; we were born working.
Our choices bought with hard earned cash- Ruger flat bolt m77 .243, Marlin336 30-30, Rem 600 6mm, and a Rem 788 22-250 for me. Only my brother with the Marlin still has his. We other three wish we still had ours......
