Just brought home a good condition Remington 788 bolt gun in .308. I really like this rifle and want to make it a hunting/defense rifle biased towards defense as I do not hunt often.
I have ordered the Timney trigger for it and it should be here soon I hope. I ordered from SWFA and there was no alert that it was on back order until I get my payment receipt
Brownell's had them In Stock but they were another $25 more than SWFA.
Some questions I have:
- Scope mounts. Do I keep regular Remington style mount on or go for the EGW picatinney rail for the 788?
- Recoil pad. I want one of the Remington Super Cell but I cannot find the correct part number for the right pad.
- What is the barrel twist rate for the .308 rifle with 18" barrel?
