Now I want one too...:whistle:

I'll post some pictures within the next couple of days along with a range report after we sight it in...possibly tomorrow.

Hey, I buy gun stuff for my son all the time,and he'll only be two next week. "Honey ,it's not for me,it's an heirloom", right?

Pretty cool though. Let us know how that 7 shoots.

We didn't get to sight it in today....we could not find any scope bases here locally. I'm gonna have to order them from Midway or Cabelas. Warne is the only company that even makes bases for Model 7's these days. Brock did shoot it twice....just to see how it felt...he liked it.

Here it is...

good pic. I thought in my mind that the 7/700 & 788 were all the same mounts.. What is the difference.???

What scope you putting on it for him??

Thank you LT...no... the mounts for the 7 are smaller in the rear...the hole for the screws are only about 1/4 of an inch apart...the whole rear base is maybe 5/8 of an inch or so.

He has already put the Nikon 3-9x40 that he had on his 243 on it so I guess we'll let it go at that for now...its a good scope anyway.

The bases came yesterday and I put them on it before I went to work.

Good move. I really like 308 in any platform.
Good upgrade for the guy. I get some flack for it but I never did like the 243.

Flame suit on so all fans blaze away.:bazooka:ME:gun3:
