    I put an older Remington 700 30-06 in layaway at the local pawn shop last week. It looked like a decent rifle and only set me back $320 w/ a scope -- I've heard nothing but good reviews about it.

    But does anyone have links on maintainence, upgrades, and accessories?

    It'll piss me off to get this rifle in a couple weeks and not know how to tear it down. :noes:

    There's not really much to tear down, all you need to clean is the barrel and bolt/bolt face, and maybe occasionally the trigger, which requires nothing more than removing the action from the stock and spraying it down.

    Ah wood -- abit scratched up, but I think I can clean it up a bit. I looked all over for a .308 but couldn't find one around here without spending an arm and a leg.

    I was looking for a good rifle to start off with that was a bit forgiving

    Cool cool, never had a rifle before now -- if it's not too complicated, there shouldn't be too much of a learning curve

    Pretty much just barrel cleaning and wiping down surfaces, nothing complicated.

    The only 700 I will use is one custom built by tacops, I have witnessed on 4 seperate occasions 700s going off when on safety and the bolt being racked.

    there have been lawsuits over that, they just came out with a new trigger design in the last year or so called the Mark X Pro to remedy these problems.

    edit: I never really had any boly/safety problems before.

    A woman once shot and killed her son through a horse trailer due the a trigger malfunction, but it seems that a lot of these problems stem from poor care, though it still wasn't a great design.
