20" Model Seven Barrels? Good Bench M

If I recall this is a rather light rifle. I bought a Browning Micro-medallion in .308Win. It's an attractive rifle but weighs exactly 6.0lbs. with a thin, short 20" barrel. It's a real beast in the recoil department. At the range it completely jumps out of the front cradle of my rest. The forend now looks like I used it for fungo practice. I helped it somewhat by adding a Pachmyer Decelerator pad. I doubt if it's as bad in the field since we rarely feel any recoil when shooting at game, but I wonder how many shooters buy these short barreled rifles only to regret it later. Just one mans opinion. Best wishes.

20" Model Seven Barrels? Good Bench M

I don't know about the Remington model 7, but I have a similar rifle, the Browning Micro-Medallion in .308Win. It weighs 6.0 lbs., and has a short, thin 20" barrel. It's a beast at the range. It's not bad in the field since we rarely notice recoil when shooting at game. The front end of what was a very pretty stock now looks like I used it for fungo batting practice from jumping out of the cradle so often. I tamed it somewhat with a Pachmyer Decelerator pad, but still use a Past Recoil Shield when firing it from the bench. I'm not a little guy, nor particularly recoil shy, but do feel the manufacturers should give some warning with these rifles so the potential owners would know what to expect. Just one guys opinion. Best wishes.
