Pictured below is my Remington Model 700BDL chambered in 7mm Rem Mag with a 24" barrel.





The 700BDL is a manually-operated bolt action with 2 forward dual-opposed lugs and a rear safety lug formed by the bolt handle lug sitting in a receiver recess. The bolt face is recessed, fully enclosing the base of the cartridge, and the extractor is a C-clip sitting within the bolt face. The ejector is a plunger on the bolt face actuated by a coil spring. The bolt is of 3-piece construction, brazed together (head, body and bolt handle). The receiver is milled from round cross-section steel. Depending on caliber, the internal magazine holds either 3, 4, or 5 cartridges and has a flush floor plate for quick unloading. The rifle can also be ordered with a detachable box magazine.

My 870 supermag that plays the role of deer hunter with a 20 inch rifle sighted smoothbore and squirrel/bird hunter with a 26 inch remchoke barrel, has many squirrels under its belt!

Got hold of a couple of .30-06 last weekend from an old guy that had been trying to trad them off to me and others for newer bolt guns. One is a Remmy 760 and the other was a nicely done Mauser sporter by Jenkins. I really did not want to swap him much for either so he said to "sell them at the gunshow for 250 each and i'll get something new."

Both in .30-06 cal. and in great shope, not exactly my caliber sither. But it works and there is a wide variety of bullet weights now in factory ammo that were not avaiable back then.

Guns went to the shw last Saturday. Old guy came by with his brother on Sat. morning. I asked if he had changed his mind. he said, "no, I came by to see if you wanted to swap the Mosin M44 you had for either one?" Duh? I threw the old parted together M44 at him and put the Remmy 760 under the table for me. Sold the Mauser for 3 and a half Sunday to partially fund another project I picked up.

Here is the Remmy 760. It is a pump action repeater with a box 4 round detachable box mag. It is just an older model of the Rem 7600 pictured in SHOOTER 13's pic. Nice blue and the walnut is smooth on the buttstock. Forend has simple grooves aound it. Old guy said he could not remember if he had ever fired it. The slide rails had hardly any marks, so I would assume he was telling the truth. It had a 4X44 Simmons on it with the high "see through" rings that I dont care for, but can live with. Scope was not close to zero on the grid of my Bushnell bore sighter, so I set it and moved it back some more for better eye relief. Haven't fired it yet cause I have no new ammo and the reloads I have now are only partially sized and from another rifle. Most likely will not chamber right.

Remington 870 Super Magnum 3.5" 12 ga.

Snagged this gun pretty cheap ofve the weekend at the gunshow. Guy brought it by my table trying to swap it even for a pot metal .38 spl that I only worth a bill. Didn't sound right. so I cut the plastic tie off it and worked it. Slide went back and did not retrun with the forend. Gave the owner the old gunshow B.S. about trying to rip me off with a broken gun and it was going to cost me tohave it fiexed. Apparently, he did not know that the threaded ring had just come off the end of the slide. He did not even know how to get the barrel off. He was embarrassed and I got him to give me 60 bucks with the shotgun for an F.I.E. Titan .38 spl. Worked for me.:D

After he left, I just took the barrel off and screwed the lockring back on. Gun is in good shape, maybe 90% finish or better. It had some wear. Poly stock on black metal with a screw in choke of unknown type. This gun shoots the 3.5" magnum shells that kill on both ends. I had several boxes of 3.5's for it from another shoulder killer I had. The 28" barrel has a vent rib and bead front. It can be removed same as other 870s. It waill slso use the 2 3/4" and 3" shells with no problems. Much easier on the shoulder. Gun went bang ejected and loaded s it should. Might just keep it. I can always use another 870. This one has enough punch for ducks or geese, but there ain't any in south Texas. They just migrate through here.

My favorite Remington is the Model 141 Gamemaster in .35 my grandfather purchased in 1938, it is my go to gun for hunting. If it can be seen it goes down with this gun and no having to track a blood trail :)

Nice shotgun Dutchs.
Thank you sir...I shot it yesterday and really like the long barell and fiber optic front sight. They have come miles on the reild pad as well so those 1/2 mag shells are not quite as brutal!! Clean up time is practically nothing too!!
