I have a modle 14 rem in 35 rem made in april of 1933 and a 7600 in 35 whelen first year of production and had a 760 in 06 corn cob forearm wish i kept that one to but this year I am looking at a 308 760 to the famliy
Two 141's in 35 Rem and 7600 in 280 with the barrel trimmed back to 19". It has had a Holosight on it for a few years and is now awaiting a VariXIII 1.75-6x transfer from my Model 7...which will get a VariXIII 2.5-8X in coming weeks.
It seems like pump rifles are not too popular in the south. Only occasionally do I ever see a pump at any of the ranges I shoot at. I don't know why but I don't even see them for sale in gun shops. Lots of bolt actions, semi autos and lever actions.
Wow more whelens then i thought would show up when i picked my gun up the classic for that year was also in whelen and all i heared was that i should have got the 700 and that it wouldn't shoot under 2" first time out with the 250 RN factory 3/4 " to 1 " all day under 1 " with my hand loads of 250 hornady rn and 4320 . i now live in louisiana but not many pumps here but grew up in PA capital of the pump rifle :grin:
There might be a reason that you do not see these guns for sell because
nobody wants to sell them. :grin: Ihave a760 30/06 carbine that I have owned for 25 years .I still pick it over my bolt or single shots for most hunts.mtn boy
I have a real nice 1954 .257 Roberts, and a .308 Carbine which started out as a 1953 30-06. Got the carbine barrel and bolt (and two mags) from www.e-gunparts.com and made the switch in about 30 minutes.
Remington 760 .30/06
Savage .30/30 carbine. I think it's a M170, but I'm not certain. I'm at work now and they get annoyed when I bring my toys in. I'm embarased that I can't recall the model, but it doesn't see much use, even though it's bagged my biggest deer to date. With that 18" (or so) barrel, it's a down right handy thing to have deep in da swamp.
I only own one 7600 remington 35 whelen but Ill buy a second 7600 in 35 whelen if I can find one thats for sure, they make an excellent timber hunting rifle, mine shoots 1.2" groups with good handloads and functions flawlesly
