    There is (or used to be) a scathing review of the tikka on chuck hawks website. With that said, I own a tikka t3 hunter and love it. Light enough to carry in the mountains and very accurate with nosler partitions. I think the best economy rifle these days has to go to the weatherby vanguard 2.

    I agree with woodtick. The 700 is the best action out there. I have several model 700's & they are my prefered rifle. I have a 700 SPS Stainless in a 300 Win Mag. It had the Xmark pro trigger, when I learned about the recall. I bought a new timney & changed it out. You can buy straight from timney. A black one is $134 & a nickel is $144. They are adjustable from 1.5 - 4 lbs. They will pre-set them where you tell them to. My advice to any one having problems is to start changing out parts. Put a timney or jewell trigger in it. Replace the barrel with a hart or shilen. Replace the stock with a Boyd or McMillan, ect....

    I completely disagree. The model 70 Win (or similar actions) is a much more reliable and much safer action. The safety is 100% reliable in the bolt locking the firing pin its self, not just in the trigger. The CRF is also more reliable and so is the extractor.

    IMHO the reason why so many people swear by the Remington action is because they have never picked up a CRF Model 70 to compare them. I'd be willing to bet that if that happened there would be a lot of Remington lovers that changed their mind about "the best action"!!! Again, IMHO the old Model 70 is THE BEST BOLT ACTION RIFLE EVER MADE!

    I have Winchester Pre 64 in a 264 Win Mag my Dad gave me. I still prefer a Model 700, that's what I started shooting when I was kid. I guess it's what you get use to & have faith in? Just my opinion......chevy, ford, dodge..... Same Argument! LOL

    I have several model 700s in different calibers. All of them shoot very good. I have other brands as well but have been very happy with the accuracy out of the 700s. No incidents here but I have been getting the letters... Not sure what I will do. Thanks for all the good input on this topic.

    I really like my original tang safety Ruger M77. Bought it in 1975 and have shot 1000's of rounds thru it without any problems. The pre 64 M70 is a classic. Fit and finish cannot be duplicated today without spend lots of $$$.

    Sorry about the ordeal you guys are having with your Remington's! Man what a pain. I think I will just keep my old Winchester M70's till I die.

There have also been many thousands of people that have had them fire that way and thank God they were being handled properly and nobody got hurt. I'd not take that gun out of the house again before I put an aftermarket trigger in it because you never know with the old trigger when it will malfunction and all it takes is one time!
    I had a "slam-fire" on a Remington 700 years and years ago. The one and only time, traded that one in. I only have 1 now because I inherited it from my best friend who passed.
