    Between the X7 and the 783, I really couldn't give up my X7. My X-gun in 308 has a great trigger and seems to like cheap ammo. Its puts cheap Rem 150s into a 1/2 inch group. I didn't do much making better hand loads. Hornady Whitetail made the worst groups in that gun at +\- 1.5 inch groups. I've wanted to make a Tactical/Target type setup with it, but with the way it shoots I loathe to change it. (full disclosure, it won't shoot 180s at all. Guess it just likes 150s)
    I'd still like a X-Gun in stainless. I almost don't even care what caliber.

    I still don't like the 783's compared to the flagship XL7 / X7 Marlin produced.

    I am tracking 783's bolts can be used on X7 / XL's with a Savage barrel to head space to.

    The 783's bold head fit on the X7 / XL7's bolt and fits Savage barrels right for a good head space and what some are doing.

    If using the X7 / XL7 bolt with a Savage barrel, about 10 thousands has to be shaved off the Marlin bolt head face for them to align right for a good head space.
    Either that or swapping out with a 783 bolt head will work.

    The Stainless X7s or XL7s models are the ones you want to own.

    Their stainless steel is nice quality and with a box cutter, you can cut away areas of the stock barrel channel to ensure the barrel is free floated all the way back to the barrel lug.
    Take the trigger down to 3 lbs.

    My XL7 stainless in 30-06 shoots 1/2 inch when I worked on it and I couldn't be happier -
    200gr Nosler Accubond - 50gr H4350 in Federal Brass, Win Primers, 3.340 OAL.
    Est 2400 - 2500 fps - I'll have to chrono it eventually.

    Marlin should bring back the XL7s or X7s stainless as an Anniversary run.
    That dog can hunt and the stocks were actually a good solid stock.

    Hands down, I would have taken a Stainless Marlin X7 / XL7 any day of week over an entry level Ruger, Remington, or Savage.
    My Rem 700's were not that great until I put some work into them.

    To me Marlin X7s / XL7s were that good in the stainless models.

    I have thus converted over to Tikkas T3's in Stainless and they are very nice also.

    Old thread but bringing it back if possible. What else is interchangable? The trigger group? Suppose I took an XS7 that was born a 243 and tried to convert it to a 223, is this possible?

    PTG has the bolt head, you will probably need a mag follower from Numrich or make/order a single-shot follower.

    • You could turn your 243 into a 223 bolt haed from PT&G the mag can be made from Savage SA stagger feed you will have to wield tabs on it or buy a marlin mag and follower hope this helps DD
