    Remington 7615P opinions please.............

    Has anyone had the chance to handle the Remington 7615 Pump Action .223 rifle? I am thinking about getting one but I don't have any resources that would give me the opportunity to fire one prior to purchase. So if you have one, fired one, or just handled one please share your opinions.

    Given the easily available AR15, I would not consider it.

    So you think it is a novelty gun?

    The gun was designed to allow LEO's who had trained on an 870 shotgun to not need a completely new set of skills when transitioning to it as a patrol carbine. If you're highly trained on the 870 and have little or no training on an AR platform, it might be the way to go. It doesn't offer anything besides being set up as a pump shotgun though.

    Well the one plus, being as how the OP is in PA, the rifle is legal to hunt with (semi isn't) however, I would not use the .223 on medium game such as white tail.

    We looked at them but found that they have some issues. Not the least of which is a magazine seating issue that is caused by a floating metal plate on the bottom of the bolt. There are times in the cycle of operation in which this plate will slide forward. This will prevent the seating of the magazine and requires the shooter to point me weapon skyward for the magazine to seat.

    Good little rifle if you like pump rifles/shotguns mags are cheap ( ar mags ) . A friend has one , and it will shoot into just a smidge over 1moa with almost any ammo we have fed it . I wont go into it vs an ar ect.. since i feel a pump and an auto really dont overlap all that much . If it were cheaper i would own one , but at the price point i just wont justify it as another toy .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Shooting .223 and having a blast at the range and just adding something else to the stable.
