i bought this as a project precision rifle. not getting too much into my own modifications of it, this is a very accurate rifle. with nothing more than changing the stock (and my own reloaded ammo), i was shooting .45" groups at 100 yards (off the bench). it will and i have hit 840 yard steel silhouette targets shot after shot. stock trigger was crisp, but a little heavy for my liking. action is smooth, as is typical of all my experiences with remington 700s. durable finish, had it for a little while now and no rust of any kind, even after wet weather use. overall, it may need a little smoothing over the edges, but it's a great rifle. good starting point if you wanna do what i did and make it a project.
