    with a torch. Yet they were polished and blued nicely. Several others with safety problems. A 870 Wing Master that wouldn't accept a
    barrel and 572 rifles that had faulty trigger groups. At about the same period I had to return a few Win 70s, all with safety problems.
    Savage, were so bad I quit selling them. Marlin, Ruger and Mossberg never had to send a new one back. The time period on this was
    85-92. All the companies were in financial troubles and it showed in all them, including Marlin & Ruger but it was fit & finish issues not
    related to function.
    I don't know - I have my dad's 1980 Rem 700 BDL in .30-06, and it's given me no grief. I wasn't able to shoot it very well, until I floated the barrel and put a Harris bipod on it. Now, it's an X-ring killer! But never had any mechanical issues with it.

    I also have a 1943 Remington M1903A3, and it's a great rifle too.

    Way cool Dave, I have the identical caliber rig in a Boyd's walnut prairie hunter stock. I bedded the receiver and with a hand load, it will put 3 under a nickel coin. 120 gr fusion and imr4350. Or 75 gr vmax over 4064. What are you getting good results with?

    I was looking around at CDNN and noticed that the XS7's are now out of stock. That's the last of the production run, as far as I'm aware. Gunbroker and the like will now be the only source for them.

    I have 2, both in .243. The first is a JM model, and the second is a Rem. Both are excellent shooters, and if worst comes to worst, I should be able to use the second one as a parts gun to keep the other one working. But it's highly unlikely I would ever need to do so. I've never really had to replace parts on any of my guns, that I can remember.

    I have two XL-7's one in .270 and one in .308. Wish I had one in .243 and 7mm/08.

    I still would like to find a x7 VH in 223. I would turn it into a tack driver with very little recoil.

    XS7VH in .223 are hard to find these days and overpriced. Why not build your own XS7VH in .223? Just need a XS7 action. Rem 783 .223 bolt heads are available. Boyd's has XS7VH stocks. You can get a custom barrel for as little as $220. Hard to find are the mag spacer, mag spring and follower. So, best to start with a 223 XS7 sporter if you need a repeater. If you want a real tack driver and a hoot to shoot, screw on a 20 Practical tube. Mike
