Lol. I have a thread here on the 783. A member at our range brought down a 783 to sight in for deer hunting. It said 270 on the barrel. His shots were all over the place, and he couldn’t figure out why. Turns out his “270” rifle had a .30 caliber bore.Yeah but now we have the Remlin 783 ----- who would possibly want an X7 ? (kidding).
I always wondered where the XL7's and XS7's went and then I saw the 783. I deeply regret selling my XL7 even though I didn't necessarily like it. It was a good rifle chambered in a good caliber.One thing to consider is most of the critical parts you might need for the discontinued XS7s are still available because of the 783 clone. Bolt head parts, trigger parts, barrels, etc. If I didn't have 8 X7s I would buy more.
I would think you can still get parts for them from Remington. But, what ever really breaks of a bolt rifle?Those are new old stock. Rifle production ended years ago. Selling out of production rifles that you can't get all of the replacement parts for isn't easy when there are cheaper or equal priced alternatives still in production by every manufacturer.
