    Remington Model 770 Bolt Action Rifle -vs- Savage 111FCXP3 Bolt Action Rifle

    Remington Model 770 Bolt Action Rifle With Scope: 7mm Rem. Mag $429.00
    Savage 111FCXP3 Bolt Action Rifle with Scope 7 mm Rem Mag $429.00

    witch one do you think would be the best deer gun>? (" was trying to get the new tc icon in .30 but the .30 shell cannot be sold in canada yet , so i spent most of my $ so i need to pick a gun under 5 hun )

    The Savage 111 FCXP3 features a matte blued barrel action, free-floating and button rifled barrel, black fiberglass/graphite composite stock with dual pillar bedding, detachable box magazine, swivel studs, swivels and nylon sling. Each 111 FCXP3 comes equipped with a high quality 3-9 x 40mm Simmons 8-point rifle scope complete with mounts and bases, boresighted and ready to go.


    Ready to hunt right out of the box, the new Remington Model 770 with scope is the new upgraded version of the extremely popular Model 710. It features the same great action and barrel of the 710 with super-accurate button rifling but now as an easier to work bolt and a more durable magazine latch. Other advancements include a new ergonomically contoured stock with raised check piece and grip texture in all the right places. Each Model 770 includes a factory mounted and bore-sighted 3-9 X 40mm riflescope so you’re ready to hit the range.

    Without question, without doubt, without debate, the Savage is the better rifle.

    But Believe it or not, I saw a Remington 700 ADL at Wallyworld tonight that was only $325. That would be better than the 770.

    Yeah, cuz that was such a great rifle. :barf:

    Sure the 710 had decent accuracy (not "super-accurate" as they claim), but it was a serious POS. Not a rifle that you will want to have for years and years.

    Savage by a long shot.

    Savage unless you can get your hands on a Rem 700 for $325.

    Dick's sporting goods has the 111 savage with detachable magazine listed for 329 with scope. Does savage make a short action with DM like the 111 FCXP3?

    Yes. All savage short actions are two digit (Model 10, 11, 12, 14, 16) versions of the 110. Model 11 would be short action 111, model 10 would be short 110, model 12 short 112, etc.

    Who comes up with this stuff?

    Extremely popular 710? Who wrote that, the 770 marketing team?

    Maybe if you're a pawnshop owner, or need either a new jack handle or tomato stake for your garden.

    Go with the Savage, or even the Stevens Model 200, which dispenses with the silly liability-lawyer Accutrigger.

    There are even good deals on Remington 700s out there, just keep your eyes open.

    As others have said, get the Savage. I've handled the Remington 770, and I was not impressed. I loved my Savage 110 in 30-06 (finances demanded I sell it).

    Quality will laregely be the same, though the Savage will be finished better and will have the Accutrigger. If you plan on keeping the stock trigger, the Accutrigger is nice. Otherwise, the Stevens is cheaper and in all other ways (beyond the stamped name) the same. The Stevens won't have a scope, which you'll have to supply. That said, the scope on the Savage isn't all that great and is only worth $25 or so. Figure that's wasted money if you have to buy another scope.

    At the present, the 111 has become the basic package rifle. It became the haven for the last of the pre-accutrigger Savage actions being assembled. They are really nice rifles. One of the two Savages I once owned was a 111C like the one you show.

    If you get it, I have an extra detachable magazine, original Savage, that I'll sell for $10 plus shipping (what a bargain!).

    i was in the same situation about 2 weeks ago...and i went for the Savage. I went to walmart to check out the 770 it felt horrible. the action was sloppy, the gun just felt cheap. i went to dicks and picked up the savage, and it was a no contest. i picked up the savage in 30-06, out of the box with no adjustment at all it was putting shots on the paper at 50 yds, after sighting it in at 100 yds i noticed the scope was coming loose after taking 20+ shots and i didn't have the tool to tighten it back down so we couldn't really sight it in.

    i have shot both, and like both, and they are actually both pretty accurate, and the remmy is quite light, and easy to hump around.
    That being said, the Savage is better, more longer lasting, better made.
