I have a chance to buy a "used" Remington 710 in .270 (used meaning only had 10 rounds through it) for $300.00 but My local gun dealer has an overstock on a Stevens 200 in .270, says I can have it for $275.00. The 710 lists for $429.00 new, the Stevens for $316.00 new. I haven't heard much good about the 710 and I know nothing about the Stevens. This is gonna be a back-up gun and a coyote gun (with light loads) and just another reason to get in trouble with the wife. Any input? Peace and God bless, Wolfsong.
