The 770 is not the smoothest gun in the world. I would think with a round of that high caliber it would break some of the plastic off of it at some point.

It would make an OK beater rifle. Don't except great accuracy but for a knock around hunter to leave behind the truck seat and used at modest ranges it will do. If you really want a good 400 yard rifle , Pass on it.

These are the rifles that have the barrel pressed into the receiver. The bolt locking lugs go into a recess in the barrel extension, and lock up in a way similar to that of a semi-automatic. It's a cheaper way to manufacture rifles, to pass the savings on to the consumer. All the tests I,ve read on them said they weren't particularly accurate, at least not like a traditionaly manufactured rifle. From the way they look, if the barrel gets shot out it's a toss away at that point. Cheap build, bad triggers, and injection molded plastic stocks you're not getting much of a gun, but the price probably is it's one redeeming feature.

Howdy JLA is correct the 770. Is a large POS you know why its 250.00 the damn thing isnt worth 50.00. My brother bought one for his wife as a starter or 1st gun brand new 270. We put it together Scope sling etc etc got it right on paper she cant hit s---. Nither can I or kid brother who is foaming at the mouth. After 3 differnt trips to the range its a crap shoot makes a good door stop. IMOP you might want to look at some more rifles (great caliber choice) we sold that headache.A old man once told me that the sweetness of a good price well be long gone when reality of poor quality sets in. Best of luck to you and have fun!!!!

Stevens 200 is an old skool savage 110 clone, and can be had for the same money. And they are wonderfully buildable, accurizable, customizable, and will last you a lifetime.

Last stevens 200 i bought was a .270 and cost me a whopping 160 bucks. I used the action to build a 6.5-284
