    HA! HA! made ya look. Seriously though what do ya think the wild AR thread and a painted AR at todays high power match kinda gave me the inspiration. I'm halfway tempted to paint the mags as well.

    That was really cruel. But much less cruel than I was expecting. :eek:

    How do you like the rifle? I've not read a review on one yet.

    I bet you damn near gave Cosmoline a stroke. I had heart palpitations myself. You are a sick, cruel man.

    :D

    The Remington looks cool. How's it shoot?

    Accuracy has been outstanding! I just shot this rifle in a NRA 200-300m Highpower match today, My score was 374:D while that may not be special I'm proud of it as this was only my second match.

    With the sights on a benchrest my 5 shot 100yd groups typically run in the 1.5 to 2 MOA range. The rifle is a blast to shoot, crankin through a 20 rounder is pure ZEN:scrutiny:

    This rifle is a good accurate piece of equipment, and would be a choice worth looking into for someone not wanting an AR but wants a .223 that takes common mags, Price is in the Mini14 range or about $200 cheaper than a decent AR but unlike the mini the Remingtons accuracy can give many an AR a run for it's money (or at least mine did today):evil:

    BTW the barrel is a medium to heavy sporter contour that features a 1/9 twist and is chambered to shoot both 5.56 and .223

    How about mounting a scope?

    And, is the manual-of-arms the same as an 870?

    I just might have to obtain one of those. Takes AR mags, no reliability issues...pump action is also a plus.

    Oh, can it take the same stocks as an 870? Being able to put on a nice folder would be cool, too.

    This rifle takes plane Jane 74-7600 mounts so mounting a scope is a snap. Aside from the obvious differences in loading and unloading the rifle functions just like an 870, in fact according to Remington the 7615 is built on a 20ga 870 reciever.

    Sounds like I need to get one then. Normally I try to avoid the Big Green's products, but they are about the only source for a SG with a steel reciever. And this is innovative.

    I strive to obtain the unusual. Everybody is running around with ARs and AKs. I'd like to have a 7615...Simple, reliable, easy to use...

    It is a fascinating rifle. And, I do like what you've done with it. A pump action .223 is something that struck me as quite unique. The fact it'll eat NATO fodder is a bonus. I saw one on sale somewhere and was wondering what to expect from it. Sounds pretty doggone good so far.

    How did you get that Williams Foolproof aperture sight installed on there? Is the receiver drilled/tapped and does the rifle come like that or did you have to have it done?

    The Williams sight is for a 74-7600 but since the 7615 takes the same scope mounts the sight worked as well, it just screwed onto the rear pair factory holes

    So not funny. I saw a mummed Arisaka T99 that'd been chopped, the stock slathered in boat-paint, and then the metal Duracoated yesterday.
