First time poster here. Haven't been shooting since the mid-70's when I had a 700 BDL in 25.06, a Parker Hale Sporter in .270 and a Ruger 10/22 along with my Lee Loaders. I still have the Ruger which is in mint Condition. I just bought a rifle advertised as a Remington 700 w. Bushnell scope in .243. As my screen name suggests, I am just a paper puncher and like the "lighter" calibers. From the pics, it's a really clean 700 with a Bushnell Elite 10x fixed scope. I figured the scope is worth around $150 and great for my use. Everything pointed to MUST BUY as the 700 action, trigger and checkering were reminiscent of my old 700 plus the forearm of the stock has a profile like my old Parker Hale. The gun appears to be in near-mint condition with the exception of the underside of the stock which shows some bench rest rubs. I build guitars, so touchups like this are right up my alley. Any idea what year and model this one might be? I'm not up with contemporary Remington Models other than the current offerings and the knowledge that 700's are still fine rifles. The recoil pad seems excessively thick ... I hope a tall guy owned it and I didn't just buy a girl's model lol! The seller was an out-of-state pawn shop who had little to offer beyond the description. It looks like a nice rife.
