And all the ammo is already paid for. I envy that so much...

You still thinking about getting a .308 bolt gun for yourself?

10,000 rounds each?! Holy fuck...

I've mulled over getting a .308 bolt action at some point. I'm not too confident in the QC of new manufacture Remington guns, based on some of the things I've read, so a Savage M10/M110 looks like a probable choice for me.

The model 10 is hands down a way better platform then the 700,good choice!

some one was telling me that on average around 1 in 3 Remingtons come with a factory fault of some kind but they're the most versatile and have the most 3rd party after market parts

I don't like the fact that the 700's bolt handle is only copper brazed on...


They can end up doing this just by cycling the bolt normally.

If you can find an older used 700 (made before Remington was bought out by Cerberus) that's in good condition and reasonably priced, I'd say go for it. It will likely be a good performer without issue. But I would pass on anything new.

Wow.....

I don't even know what to say about this.

Yeah shitty way to attach a bolt handle to a bolt body imo...
Thing is you don't know if you have a lemon and do this in the first 10 shots,or after 10 years on shot # 5021..
Much prefer one piece bolt bodies,or like the savage 10 have the handle bolted from the rear of the bolt body itself.

That's the copper brazing residue your seeing...
Having knowledge of metallurgy and joining similar/dissimilar metals, that was a starved braze. A proper copper brazed joint should have a fillet of copper visible around the full perimeter of the join. If done properly, the joint should be close in strength to the metals being joined. Clearly, that join was starved and poorly prepared. Such a shame, too. To re-braze that operating handle to the bolt, it will most likely need machining afterward.

I'm sure when done right it's never a problem,I never have any luck when gambling with Murphy though...Fucker always wins..

Yeah, I'll agree. Murphy has some serious chops when it comes to firearms. Murph and I had some serious battles when I was building a ROMAK underfolder from a kit. I drilled the barrel to pin it in place, damned pin wouldn't go in. Closer inspection showed the hole was offset by just enough. Mind you, the receiver/barrel never left the drilling vice! That was the point where Murph decided the barrel should never turn in the block. Ever. Many bad words, thrown tools and adult beverages later, the pin was in without redrilling.

Murphy and I are on a first name basis.

that bolt repair should only be undertaken by someone that has done this before multiple times. The handle acts as an additional pseudo locking lug so the clearance in the action dictates where that bolt handle needs to be. Most gunsmiths that do this would use a fixture to hold things while the brazing was being done.

Yup Murphy's a dick,no good intentioned deed goes unpunished:D

A lot of people have said screw it (literally) and just end up installing set screws through the bolt body..

I have had that very same repair done to a Remington 700 in .243 because it had a starved braze. Still have it and it's been hunting several times after the repair.

Good to hear!
The bolt is my only gripe with the 700,other then that it's a great rifle with good fundamentals..
I prefer the bolt throw and smoothness of the 700 over the savage 10.

Here's a couple in my old collection.

My PDW-esque AR pistol
nxoKDdk.jpg

Made with a neato pencil Ballistic Advantage Hanson barrel. This is my go-to home defense weapon (still waiting on a suppressor stamp...) Loaded up with 53gr Hornady V-Max. Honestly, this thing weights a hair under 5lbs (unloaded) and I was expecting it to recoil more, and be unpleasant, but... the difference between this and the lower AR, in terms of recoil are basically negligable, other than the flash (which is considerable) there's almost no difference. I love the look, and feel of this thing! I don't have vast swaths of land I live on or anything... and self defense I'd be doing in or around my house would be within 50 yards, so this is A-okay for my uses. Just need to get that dang supressor for it, and slap a red dot on it.

This just a regular ass lightweight AR, also made with a neato BA handson barrel and a 2.5x ACSS optic. This is... the second AR I've built I think, It's quite light, and very enjoyable to shoot.

This is another AR, except this one has a coolio FN CHF barrel and shit! This is the first AR I've ever built, it's a bit heavier that I would have liked, but that being said it's still a dream to shoot.
aUutiV2.jpg


I sort of like building AR's a lot... it's so easy, cheap, and freaking FUN! With how the market is these days... it's kind of hard to build a bad AR. Not to mention I just like tinkering in general.

This is my old VEPR, that I paid way too much for. Of course, I've converted it to take normal AK mags, and put a normal stock on it, and removed the pin and welded thread protector, and put a normal pistol grip on it. This is a nice gun and everything, but truth be told I don't enjoy it much. It's too heavy, and for where I live, I only have access to an indoor range, so no steel cased ammo... so ammo's kind of expensive for me. Not to mention the recoil isn't too enjoyable.
c3Lh9T1.jpg


This is a Ruger SR-1911 Night Watchman Comander, (nitrited finish+trijicon night sights) This is... the second 1911 I've ever had, and for the price I think this one is excellent, it's picky with magazines, but the sights are to die for, and the recoil is just fine. Not my first choice for handguns, but it's pretty, and it's a pleasure to shoot!
RvKtT41.jpg


This is my old Beretta 92FS, plain jane, except for steel parts upgrade, and elite hammer. A great range gun.

I like your old War collectible guns. But many of them are either too expensive, or I just wouldn't have a proper place to use them :/

This is my go-to home defense weapon

i can't stand this American attitude

"i need an AR-15 cause there's totally going to be 20 ninja's breaking into my home at some point!"

mate a .22 revolver is going to be deterrent enough for them to get out

Probably wouldn't need a 30rnd magazine, a 20 round would probably do. That being said, More often than not people break into houses in pairs, or in threes. And as much as I practice, I can't garantee I'd be hitting people, in a stressful situation. Also, if someone's breaking into your house... why NOT have more ammunition? As far as the AR-15 goes. Having an SBR or something like that is much easier to hit targets versus shooting with a pistol. Anyone will tell you, shooting with a handgun is almost an art form in of itself. You only have two points of contact, with a 5 (or less) inch barrel, the slightest bit of movement can make the difference between being an inch off, or two feet away from your point of aim. You have at least four points of contact with that AR, and a 10.5" barrel, and an even longer sight radius, this means I'm much less likely to miss, and if I do, I have more rounds to sacrifice. Also, the faster moving rounds are more likely to break apart in the walls due to velocity (plus the fact that they're polymer tipped) and do damage beyond that.
