    A used 660 in 308 is available at my local gun store for 400.00 stock is heavily butchered but still usable. There is just something about the rifle that I like.Not like I need another 308. I would like to hear your opinions of this rifle. Good, bad and ugly

    Jump on it! The 660 was a low production rifle. The barreled receiver is worth more than the asking price.

    The 660 Remington action is the same as the 700. My family ran 600/660 carbines for decades. They are accurate, durable and reliable

    Make sure the trigger has been upgraded by Rem as there was a recall for the 600 & 660 series. If it was fixed by Rem it will have the letter v stamped on the left side of the trigger.

    Okay, I bought it, I had to convince my wife to drive me to the gun store and give me the money as I have a broken foot and can't drive. total was 425.00 with tax but it does not have the V so I will have to ship it out to Remington.

    Wow that's beautiful wood, and the rifle looks pretty clean. What's the bore like?

    And the sights are cool, too.

    Really good looking stock on a real nice rifle, if people only knew!:rolleyes:
    You might enclose a note in the package to Remington that you would like the rear sight replaced. Be sure to remove the slide (detachable part) from the beautiful reciever sight !They probably will NOT charge you for this!:D

    I'm thinking of mounting a 2X7 Leopold scope on it and taking it hunting

    Timney makes a replacement trigger for your rifle and it is much better than the factory trigger. Instead of sending the rifle back to Remington, save the money and buy the Timney.

    Boy I would think long and hard about NOT removeing those wonderful peep sights! Maybe Scout mount would be nice and they are available as that platform was the basis of the original scout concept.

    There seems to be no problem with the safety or the trigger. Can I use the rifle as is without sending it back to Remington?

    Remington 660 .308 is a keeper! I bought mine over 40 years ago. In the 1980's I had the barrel chanel glass bedded and triger lightened a bit. This carbine has been with me for some great hunts including moose & caribou in Saskatchewon, Canada. The photo shows a heavy bodied muley taken in South Dakota's Black Hills.

    The unmodified 600/660 trigger can go off once in a while when safety is pushed off if the trigger has been heavily pulled ith safety on. I have had it happen to me, be aware of it at all times and even after it is modified.

    I see they sell a Timney trigger. Has anyone here installed a Basix trigger? I don't see one on their website.

    Gotta love the mohawk. Is the bottom "metal" metal or plastic? Replace that and get a trigger or just work it. They're nice shooting guns. I've got one in 222 rem
