Glad you went with the plainer wood stock, then. The $700+ difference in the $1850 GB rifle (plus sales tax now) and the rifle you bought will go a long way.

Please do post pics. I think this is the first time I’ve been of slightly differing opinion than Camster. I paid only $1100 for the above-pictured 1717 just a few months ago (no DST), and I have...

I would say that most of the Meistergrades I have seen did not have the engraving on the trigger guard, so all you have is the box label. And, some of the "non-Meistergrades" have wood as nice as,...

Addressing the OP’s question regarding strength, the Mini-14 action itself is as strong as probably any action, with its two large lugs and rock solid metallurgy, but it is well known that the design...

As would be expected, both types were available for a time, but my problem 1712 was made in 2010, and probably one of the earlier ones.

Glad to hear it, and I was thinking about the single-shot version myself.

The ignition issue was mentioned quite often here when the so-called “side safety” sporters were introduced. My threads on...

I thought about jumping in on this one again, but I just had my doubts about the sincerity of the inquiry...intended or not, it seems to just stir the pot.

Definitely Faschingbauer bottom metal on the OP’s early 52 action. I have an old Gun Digest featuring Faschingbauer’s ad for his hinged .22 lr bottom metal, but it’s at work so I can’t snap and post...

Good for you! I guess I understand why people feel they need to express their opinions about not selling, but it’s just a Rem 700, for crying out loud, and they are selling for a lot right now.

I honestly think the odds are you will not have a single issue with that rifle. I wouldn’t buy high rings in anticipation of problems. Looking forward to pics and your report.
Good luck.

I wonder what percentage of 64-actioned rifles are shot with iron sights? Certainly, all of the rifles that do not come with sights have scopes, right? I could understand this if we were talking...

I don’t think there were any persistent extraction issues, the problem was feeble ejection on a fair number of both the 64 and 54 actions.
The 64-actioned sporters are/were some of the best squirrel...

Yes, right before I decided to make the standing/folding rear sight work, I went ahead and ordered the folding-only sight. Very nice sight, and it certainly would have worked, but I'm liking the way...

I really do appreciate everyone's thinking out loud. I always benefit from the input.

So, I shaved .035" from the tops of three different types of 6-48 screws, slotted, hex, and Torx, and none...

I’ve probably fired more .224” bullets in .223” bores than in .224” bores, since I gravitate towards the vintage rifles, so your worries are unfounded, in my experience. Nice rifle, BTW…fire at...

Good question, and the same thoughts have occurred to me. Still, the Dakota quarter rib is only .500" wide to accommodate the Talley rings, narrower than most rear sights would be. Also, every...
