It's a nice gun synthetic or not, but still check the bore etc. But I just don't like pump action rifles. It's all up to the user, though.

I had one in 308, just didn't like the pump.

I have the older model 760 (not 7600) in .308; very happy with it. $300 is a good price if in decent condition:thumbsup:

I've wondered about them too. How is the accuracy?

so what would an older one be worth? Is 300 to much?

Not if it's in good shape. What caliber? Wood?

As long as the stock isn't beat up and its not rusted too hell it should be GTG.

I paid $300 for this 760 carbine in .30-06 and felt I got a super deal. I bought it off of Calguns and pursued it for over a month until I finally landed it. I love the 760/7600 series. This is a fast firing weapon with all the practical accuracy you will need out to 400 yds. You can even get 10 rd magazines for them!

My 760 in 30-06 and several friends(one 308 and one 280 amoung the 30-06's) all shoot very small groups. We did do some tigger work to them that a gunsmith taught me. My 760 does not look like much but it is one of the last rifles I would sell if I had to sell.

I have 2: Both 760's. One in .257 Roberts, the other in .270 Win.

Both can shoot moa all day...the .270's taken a big elk and a few deer. The .257 needs help with an owner who can reload.;) The cartridge is a necked-up 7mm mauser, a very efficient round itself...the 7mm is also the father of the 7-08, super efficient, etc.

If you reload, you can go from 70 or so gr. bullets for varmints, up to 125gr. for deer...and all points in between.

The 760 is lightweight, mags are available...it's an easy gun to carry all day.

Manual of arms is about the same as an 870, as is the trigger group.

$300 is a good deal if the rifle's been well kept. You'll like it.

To answer the original question the 7600 is the updated version of the 760. It has fewer and larger locking lugs on the bolt compared to the 760 the theory being that the 760 bolt could be subject to freezing in place in wet and cold conditions. I believe it is actually a cost savings move by Remington as the 760 is a very popular deer rifle in Pennsylvania where conditions are certainly freezing during deer season and I've never heard of one locking up due to water in the action freezing.

What caliber is it? If you decide to pass I'd like the contact info as I love these rifles and I'm looking for another one.
