I just went through a NIB Model Seven Remington Synthetic in 308.
It was light and handy. HOWEVER...
The black stock has a cheap slippery plastic feel and makes all sorts of hollow sounds.
The barrel channel presses against the matte blued barrel in at least three random places. Since the barrel is very thin.... This cannot be good for accuracy.
The butt-plate's edge protruded from the stock ( stood proud) plus it appeared crooked.
Instead of a blind magazine, they went with a hinged floor-plate. The floor-plate itself was made from some mystery material. Maybe cast aluminum, but it sounds more like hard plastic.
The action was OK, but not super smooth like the old M-700s.
And they have a $740 MSRP.... I think I will pass...... If it had been around $500 I might think it was worth putting some money into it. But a full Remington price for Mossberg quality is no deal.
