I remember reading somewhere, and I don't know how true it is, that over 65% of the Remington 7600 series of pump action rifles ever sold, have been sold in the state of Pennsylvania.

Pump action shotguns are famous, but I don't hear about rifles with that type of action too often.
Is there a downside for a pump compared to bolt action? I would imagine the pump is faster for most shooters, but I've seen good shooters operate a bolt pretty darned quickly.

Great looking rifle...nice buy!

A pump action rifle like the Remington 7600 series, is in essence a bolt action. The only difference is forward and rearward pressure on the forend rotates the bolt, instead of the bolt handle. The downside is a pump action doesn't produce the camming leverage like a true bolt action can. So on a conventional bolt action firing a hot load, the shooter might encounter a slightly harder than normal bolt lift, that would lock up a pump action with the same load. With a pump action, (or lever actuated bolt action like a Browning BLR, or a Winchester Model 88), you want to stay away from hot handloads, or "Light Magnum" factory loads.

And you want to keep the chamber clean, and the bolt lugs well greased. That will help to insure trouble free, smooth operation. My rifle came with a chamber brush pre bent on an angle to brush out the chamber through the ejection port every few rounds. My Remington 7400 semi auto came with the same thing. Dirty chambers in these rifles can cause cases to stick, and make cycling the action difficult.

They run fine if you keep them clean, lubricated, and feed it the ammunition the gun was designed to operate around. And it is imperative if you shoot handloads of any kind, that you full length resize the brass. And be sure to bump back the shoulder far enough to allow easy bolt lock up without having to force anything.

That is flat gorgeous. Nice find indeed.

I had a 7600 in .270 once, and another in 6mm Remington I think, but of course I let them get away. Dumb.

I have the 150th anniversary model 7600 (1966).
It was my Dad's and I used it to hunt deer in Pennsylvania after he quit with it. Quite a upgrade from a Winchester 30-30.
It is still a beautiful gun and it's been in the snow, rain and killed alot of deer. I think you will be very happy with it.

The walnut was the first thing I noticed. Very beautiful.

On a side note, just think of how many cruise vacations you could have purchased! hornets


Realistically, one for the OP and spouse in a steerage class inside cabin.
We already know that cruises aren't the OP's thing.

I couldn't stop thinking about the price on that rifle. It just kept ringing in my head as, "too good to be true". So I went on the Sportsman's Warehouse website and found this.

https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting...iversary-limited-edition-rifle/p/1458117

https://www.sportsmans.com/remingto...versary-limited-edition-pistol/p/1456826

I can't know for certain, but something is telling me they cataloged that rifle into their system wrong. And ended up selling me a 200th Anniversary 7600 Rifle for the price of a 200th Anniversary R-1 Pistol. Because I can't find that rifle for that price anywhere else on their website. The kid that sold me the rifle even mentioned to me they had the matching pistol as well.

The kid and I completed the paperwork. Then the manager checked everything to make sure it was correct. After that the kid carried the gun and accompanied me up front to the register, and waited while the girl rang me out, took my money, and gave me my receipt. So that whole process involved a total of 3 employees. The kid, the manager, and the check out girl. So if there was a mistake, all 3 made it, one after the other. That seems doubtful. The gun had to be entered into their system for that price, because she scanned the bar code on the end of the box and it rang $899.00. And as I said, when I originally asked him the price, I was shocked when he told me $899.00. And my immediate reply was, Are you sure? He checked, came back with the manager and said yes. I'm not complaining mind you, it all just makes me wonder.

I could be wrong but I thought I found it on Bud’s for $989. Not far off from the price you paid. Again, I didn’t look too hard.
