Looking for Input-Pump Action Rifles
#1
So I've been using my 12GA Mossberg the last few months more than before and something has me inspired. I absolutely love the feel of the pump action. The thought of a pump action rifle has been occupying me as of late. Went to the local gun shop yesterday to get my grubby paws on some and man I'm in love! Specifically I handled a Remington 7600 and 76 chambered in either .270 and 30-06. I'm leaning towards a 30-06 though. The guns are light, compact and feel great to me tucked into the shoulder. Actions are crisp and smooth, the wood is absolutely beautiful and the thought of adding one of those 10 round magazines is cool too! I know these aren't designed for pinpoint accuracy from here to the next county but that's not what I'm looking for. I want something that I can tote out to the fields or into the brush, have the ability to take quicker stabs at running game and something that is light and portable. I've had lever actions and bolt actions before but that's not what I want either.

I may have also been inspired a bit by you EM and your new .22 pump. I admit, I'm a bit jealous and I had to fondle a couple of those too while I was there. Some day....

Anyone have experience with the Remington 7615, 7600, 760 or 76 pump rifles?

Any other offerings out there besides ones from Remington that I should consider looking at?

What say you forum?

I wish I had some input.

I assume there's a downside, or they would be more popular.
I just don't know what it is.

I would guess they aren't so popular because people get set in their ways and everyone is familiar with bolt actions or lever actions. If we'd instead seen slide action rifles instead of lever actions in old westerns I would imagine levers would be more rare. Hell, I've never even thought about the idea of a pump action rifle until recently. With that and not many options out there in slide action rifles I would say that is probably the main reason they aren't so prevalent.

A few years back several police departments were getting rid of there Remington 76 series rifles. You might still be able to find some out there. I don't remember the caliber they were chambered in.

Probably the Remington 7615 in .223. They take all standard AR magazines too I believe. I'm looking for a little more oomph than .223 though but if they didnt have the trigger disconnect letting it slam fire then maybe Big Grin...
