PLain pistol grip stock, grooved slide handle on earlier models, checkered stocks on later. If it were .222 Rem or .223 Rem worth around $900, .257 Roberts $650. Others down graded to $295.

anyone ever hear of a 760 in .300 savage ??

There should be a 2 or 3 character alpha code on the left side of the barrel of your rifle - just in front of the receiver.

This coding will give the month and year of manufacture.

Just post the letters here, and I'll look it up for you.

It looks like you have a gun that was manufactured in August of 1952.

I have one in 30-06 that was made in October of the same year.

none of you would happen to have an extra clip for a 760 in 222 would you?

they are not interchangeable, I have two re worked, but it would be nice to have another original.

yes, the 300 was a good choice in the pumps, keep in mind there are 76's and 760 in almost every popular deer round, both right from Remington and made up post factory custom. like my 32-350 moosechucker, my design with Bill D.'s help, I'd like to have it in a lever and we are still working on that. in the pump it works fine as long as you full length resize.

HEY! you can't leave out the most popular rifle of 1936, the Gamemaster 141.
and my 25R, 25A and model 14A'a are feeling left out too.

adk...:

From the nomenclature, it sounds like your 32-350 is based on the .350 RemMag case. Can you confirm this? Over the past few years I've been hearing that the bolt head of the Remington pumps isn't big enough to handle a magnum case head. If it is, it opens a world of possibilities.

no, it's based on the 350 maine guide 2

depends on what we are calling a mag and which ones

what are you trying to fit in one and who tried it?

edit: why the mainer over the rem mag? Mostly the maine guide 2 is more accurate than the rem mag due to its shorter, fatter case which all top shooters know promotes a more uniform force on the bullet due to a higher loading density (less air space) and a more easily and uniformly ignitable powder charge.
