The Dakota Model 76 Classic is the entry level Model 76, the first choice for someone seeking the strength of the Model 76 action, planning to use the rifle with optics rather than open sights and desiring a simpler trim stock. The Dakota Model 76 features controlled round feeding and positive extraction; the extractor, underneath the locking lug and positioned at the end of the bolt, opens fully to insure that the next round feeds smoothly. The three-position safety allows the bolt to be operated with the safety on. The one-piece trigger guard and hinged floorplate are machined from solid bar stock. Every Dakota 76 can be custom-tailored to your size and tastes, with a wide range of optional features available.
