      You try clicking the lil’ “X” on the right side of the screen? Kinda sucks that you have to do it on every page, but it gets rid of the ad while you’re on that page. Or get ad blocker software. Though I, too, wish Dasani would realize that being annoying isn’t going to get me to buy their water, and just buy a static ad.

    That price tag is the funniest thing I’ve read all week.

      I thought hunting rifles should be somewhat inexpensive?

      • Bear The Grizzly

        I’m not sure I’m understanding you correctly, but a 1,000 dollars is not what I would call inexpensive. Ruger and Savage started an arms race to develop inexpensive hunting rifles packed with desirable features for half the cost of rifles in the same category. I’m sure Winchester makes a good rifle, but I could buy an equally as good rifle and a better than average piece of glass for that kind of coin.

        • iksnilol

          That’s what I meant, 1000 dollars isn’t little. I thought hunting rifles shouldn’t cost much.

          • Bear The Grizzly

            Ah ok! I get you now.

    • Vitsaus

      Got me too. Any bolt action rifle over $700.00 that doesn’t guarantee 1MOA or under out of the box is legalized robbery. Its like they’re asking $400 for the stock.

      Street price might be lower, I’ll have to check. Remington seems to be trying to blow out the doors with their budget 700s, but I’ve heard bad things and mixed reviews about their quality control lately.

      • Bear The Grizzly

        I have various reasons for not buying Remington, but the massive recall they had with their 700 triggers killed the brand forever in my eyes. I firmly believe that the bulk of their sales come from people not knowing any better. They may be able to buy favor from various online personalities, but almost everyone who actually buys their own equipment tend to have something negative to say about them.

        • Grindstone50k

          The 700 series has a strong reputation legacy, especially with it’s presence among LEO/MIL applications. Hard to defeat that with one recall.

          • MR

            It’s not just the recall, it’s all the little defects, blemishes, and misaligned recoil lugs that have turned me off to Remington. Not saying I’ll never buy one, I’ll just be looking it over real well before I start any paperwork.

          • Bear The Grizzly

            And Marlin had a strong reputation for lever guns, but you can’t find a single forum that is not swamped with complaints of poor craftsmanship. Remington rides the wave of their past success and has brought nothing worth while to the table in quite some time.

    Price is not terrible, its a more costly to make rifle than savage, and a number of stainless savages msrp right around 1k
