The Remington Model 770 is a descendant of the most popular, most accurate, factory-built centerfire in hunting arms history—the Model 700. The Model 770 shares many of the hallmark features of the Model 700, including rugged dependability, a crisp, single-stage trigger, ultra-fast lock time, and the same "three-rings-of-steel" design for superior action strength. Some of the upgrades the Model 770 received are: an advanced stock with a more ergonomic shape, an ultra-smooth, easier-to-cam bolt, a durable new magazine latch, and a solid steel receiver for smooth bolt operation and long-term reliability. Three locking lugs lock the bolt directly into the barrel for unprecedented action strength. This package comes with a pre-mounted and bore-sighted 3-9x40mm scope. The Compact version of the 770 has a shorter, 20" barrel, giving the rifle a 39-1/2" total length.
