Eyegor When I started hunting in 82 my dad’s go to deer gun was his 760(0)? In .30-06 and I coveted that gun. I never bought my own because I was confident that his would end up in my safe one day. Don’t ya know he went and traded it for a 700 BDL when I wasn’t looking.

The SSPís are reserved for the Maxi! 😉

I drilled and tapped mine too. Leupold 2x7 affixed. It shoots great. I needed to use Miller Rings as two diff scopes would not adjust windage to align 100yards. I assume the barrel to receiver is off or mount is drilled slightly askew. Either one is now moot with these rings.

Well my friend, I started shooting these "Amish tommy guns" in 1984. I was more of a shotgun guy back then and a big 870 fan. A pump Remington rifle just seemed a no brainer when I started hunting Pennsylvania where a rifle could be used. I had about every caliber made at one time, but a divorce in 2006 forced the sale of some of the rarer calibers.

charles p Can you adjust you eyepiece for a better focus? Happened to me once after retrieving a rifle I hadnít used in 25 years. My eyes changed. All but one of my scopes are Leupold. The odd scope is a Minox.

Charles, I believe the problems I have with the Leupold scopes has something to do with me and not the scopes. I have close to a dozen newer Leupolds and none are clear at 50 yards, which is all the further I can shoot at my range. If my 100 yard range ever gets completed, I'm going to give the Leupolds another try at 100 yards.

I have a box of those new fangled gummy tip bullets, but I have a pretty good stash of these 3505's left from my 357 Maximum.

I thought about it and I just wouldn't feel right sending you a used birthday present. If I can find a new one in the box, I'll send it your way.
