New Deer Rifle!


Recommended Posts

Persistence pays off in a nice way. After running my "WTB Remington 760/7600 Carbine" Want-AD in the classified section of this Forum for a couple of months. And constantly refreshing it every 3-4 days, to keep the Post active, I purchased this beautiful 7600 Carbine. This is a very early production 7600 rifle. Pre-Freedom Group. Remington did not produce any 7600 Carbines from 1980-85. Based on the Serial # and the "White Line Spacers"on the stock, this rifle has a build date somewhere in the 1987-88 range. Remington discontinued the "White Line Spacers" sometime around 1989.  Sometime in this rifles past, a gunshop has added on a recoil pad and also performed a "Magna Porting" service to help reduce recoil for my old shoulder. 

The moral of the story is that these WTB AD's pay off in a nice way!

Super  nice weapon, and bonus is the carbine model for a faster swing when needed. Great find, good luck with with.

Over the years the US has sent many of its fine young men & women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return, is enough to bury those that did not return. COLIN POWELL

Nice rifle. I'm still hoping to find a 760 carbine in .308.

Very nice.  Good luck with it.  Are you going to put a scope on it?

Thanks! I removed the 3x9 Redfield Tracker that came with it. I bought this with the intention of using this with either the original iron sights or a Williams Peep. I have really good eyesight for my age. I wanted a lightweight fast handling Pump for still hunting in Maine.  I also have a Remington Model 6 Pump in .270 Cal that is nicely scoped for stand hunting.

 Nice find!  Hope the seller did the right thing and not charge you 2k for it! 

Although I prefer not to disclose the price that I paid, it was a really good package that came with three extra magazines, six full boxes of ammo, and the 3X9 scope. So both parties were satisfied with the price.

I am in the minority...not a pump rifle fan. I prefer bolt guns. 3 out of 5 at hunting camp hunt w 760/7600 rifles. I sold two minty 760s a few years ago for peanuts. I hope I didn't make a mistake. I hunt w an old 700 in 30-06. 

It’s crazy to see the prices they are selling these old rifles for .

‘in the 80’s you could buy them for 150 bucks with a good scope
