Stop me before I buy a new Remington
I have to admit to owning a number of 20th Century Remington bolt guns to include an M1917, a Model 30 (the commercial 1920s version of the M1917 with better fit and finish), a few early 700s including a walnut-stocked BDL and a Sendero, et. al.
But I haven’t bought one made in the past couple decades.
However, I ran across this in Dallas last week:
It’s the Model Seven Threaded, a .308 Win or .300 BLK chambered bolt-action that weighs just 5.5-pounds and is carbine length with a shortened stock and 16.5-inch barrel.
Now that would really be something for swamp deer (or the increasing infestation of feral hogs) in the dense underbrush of the Pearl and Pascagoula river systems that I like to call home– and when coupled with a nice .300 subsonic and a decent .30 caliber can (I was taken by OSS Suppressors new HX QD 762 Ti series at the ASA Shoot), I could see it as a very quiet little rifle that is still good out to 600 yards or so.
