If you are really into that rifle you should make sure you do a lot of research on it. I just recently learned that those rifles have a quiet history of being unsafe. There was a very informative dateline special on it, and even videos of snipers in the military showing how the rifle will discharge even if the trigger is not actuated. I'm not saying I'm an expert, just saying keep a real keen eye about it. Remington did develop a new trigger system for the 700 and markets both that design and the original now. If I were to purchase one of these rifles I would definitely make sure it was one with the new trigger system.
