    My dad has one in 22-250 and it rocks. Would love to get a .222 for that price. I would jump on it. :)

    That is a more than fair price for even a real beater of a 788 rem. I bought mine in 1976 and has allways been one of the most accurate rifle I have shot. Triggers are not as bad a some say and way better than many today. Use a little grease on the recoil lugs and you will not hurt anything if you don't bang on the bolt let a idiot or load maxed loads with larger cartidges, besides it fixable. Doubtfull today if a rifle at 3 time what you will pay wil shot any better. Even the old birch stock refinish well.
