Yes, I like.
i want one
I never understood the need/want for a shorter barreled bolt action rifle.
I love mine. Fun to shoot.
If most of your shooting is going to be within, say, 400 yards, you're not going to see a huge benefit from the longer barrel. (with the .308) On the other hand, the shorter barrel is going to be lighter and easier to carry around, especially if you're hunting or something where you are walking through brush.
Its sharp but I'd prefer a faster twist in either chambering and that thing is pricey. If you want a 20" 700 I'd get an LTR and put the money I saved into getting the trigger lightened and action squared.
Thanks for that imput
I do like the free floating barrel
the LTR is cheaper, and basically the same rifle. you can adjust the trigger on the LTR, you just have to take it out of the stock. That's what I did with mine.
I picked up my LTR for $765, and I don't think the MSRP is too far from that these days. A whole lot cheaper than that tactical version. Anyone able to get anything from the remingtonle.com website should be able to get the LTR. My local gun dealer had one in a week.
Does the LTR have a free floating barrel??
I believe all the 700s do.
i've been looking into getting this one for awhile .308 700 tactical rifle
its a shit ton cheaper than the other and i'm not going to be doing much out of the ordinary with it. There isn't really anything in the description though and i want to see it in person before considering buyin it.
$681 vs. $1,434 for the XCR
you could probably buy a SPS and mod the shit out of it and still not hit $1.4k
It's "tactical" and the shit doesn't come in black? WTF am I paying so much money for?
You would have to be high to pay $1400 for a LTR in a *meh* stock, with a paintjob.
We had one in the shop the other day, that stock is ugly as sin.
See, this guy works in a pawn shop. Who do you think his clientele are?
Meth heads wanting the newest in tactical gear, that's who.
i'll give you my thoughts on it when my friend gets it hopefully this week. i almost jumped on one as well but decided to get an fn pbr instead
Ask emfuser what kind of "pawn shop" i work at.
I have the 700 SPS tactical... I love the gun. The stock leaves a lot to be desired though. It is supposedly free float but not when using a bipod. I had to remove about 1/8" of material from the front of the stock to make it so. It only has one sling stud as well. Some people like the sticky rubber feel of the stock but I could do without it. Also I'd prefer a more vertical wrist as well. The front of the stock flexes a good bit also.
Like was said though. I picked my SPS up for $550. $850 buys you a lot of goodies. Hell, you could buy a nice bell & carson stock, a better barrel, a bipod, and maybe a base/rings with the leftover cash. I'd rather do that then buy the XCR. I'm not big on the look of the fluting either.
It was in jest bro, I've seen those pics before.
I have a Rem 700, but I don't like that one.
yea when you try it out i'd appreciate your input kds000 and yours too was good sqwril
