Remington 770 — budget rifle with sniper abilities
In the US there is the cult of the gun. It is a serious disincentive to produce models, quite affordable but has great small features, reliable and trouble free in operation. In 2006, the company began producing the Remington model 770, which is an improved version 710.
It is so cheap – the starting price of the manufacturer less than $ 500 that many Russian hunters, the habit of considering that cheap can only be “good” causes rejection. However, in terms of accuracy and range combat Remington 770 is not worse than the weapons of the elite class, standing fabulously expensive.
Description of the rifle the Remington 770
A repeating rifle with a bolt lock.
Bed plastic, butt type “Monte Carlo”. The shock-absorbing recoil pad, fixed. It all seems trivial and uninteresting. However, its design is radically changed compared to the Remington model 700 – ancestors series bolt rifles.
- First and foremost, it is worth noting that designers have abandoned the shutter Mauser 98 with two lugs and used the larva with three. Due to this rotation of the handle when unlocking is limited to sixty degrees, which increases the rate of fire and locking the barrel became more reliable.
- The second receiver was closed, leaving a window for extraction cartridges, which occupies not more than 1/6 of its surface.
Advantages and disadvantages
- Quality barrel, made by technology of durnovaria rifling. There are muzzle chamfer in the form of a conical recess of the crown, which increases the accuracy of the battle.
- Locked receiver, which can not reach the dirt that is often on the hunt.
- Three lugs on the bolt, which allows for faster reloading of the weapon (the angle of rotation of the handle 600 vs ninety old models), and also makes the locking of the barrel is more reliable.
- Teflon bushing on the back plate of the receiver and the grooves for stops shutter on its inner surface, so that the shutter moves smoothly, do not warp and doesn’t rattle.
- Detachable box magazine to simplify loading the weapon. His latch is removed from the trigger guard forward, the forearm. If she were bigger, it would be absolutely wonderful. The shop is made from polyamide, that is not all hunters are welcome.
- Designers refused to place a button to unlock the shutter inside the trigger guard and set it to the left of the back plate of the receiver. This is more convenient.
- The rifle comes with an installed strap weaver and adjustable rear sight Bushnell 3-9х40.
- A wide range of calibers, from .243 Win up to a small-caliber Magnums.
- The ergonomics of the lodges is very good. Developed fluting on the shank and the handle cushion “Monte Carlo shock-absorbing recoil pad make it comfortable and prekladatel. At the same time, it should be noted that it is not equipped with an integrated metal bus, made a groove for the stop of the recoil on the breech. Therefore, stable results of the shot as sporting rifles, is unlikely to be achieved. In addition, the barrel though is positioned as a console, in fact it fits snugly to the forearm. It also affects the accuracy of the battle and its predictability.
- There is no set of external sights, and shooting from a short distance away with a dynamic chassis and driven hunting optical sight supplied is not very suitable.
- The trigger lock only blocks the sear. The firing pin remains cocked, so the gun is potentially dangerous anyway. In addition, when the middle position of the fuse box sear is not blocked, therefore the arrow must be accurate in handling them.
- Rifle heavy – 3.8 kg.

The principle of operation
- When loading weapons need to move the fuse box back to the stop (the “Stop” position). Then removed the store, which pressed the lever-latch located in front of him on the forearm. The cartridges are stacked in two rows (staggered).
- When you need to charge the fifth cartridge, the breech bolt handle is raised, it is moved back, and then leans forward. The larva feeds a cartridge into the chamber and included in it along with the Donets sleeve. Lugs engage the lugs of the receiver when you rotate the handle down and lock the barrel. After that, clear the store, add another cartridge and put him in his place.
- The platoon drummer is on the last millimeters of the bolt travel forward and lowering the handle. After filing in a cartridge chamber of the rifle ready to fire. So don’t rely on the fuse, do not press the trigger, keep your fingers away from the trigger guard.
- Removing the cartridge from the chamber securely because when lifting the handle up and the retraction of the bolt back there is an automatic withdrawal of the drummer with cocking.
- To put weapons on the fuse (the box is far back), retrieve, store, open the shutter and move it back.
- Click on the button on the left side of the back plate of the receiver, remove the shutter Assembly.
