First Remington I've Bought

Got it for my daughter for deer season this year. Should work out pretty well.

I bought it on GB. Had a little trouble with the private seller and finally tracked down a phone number--she's 85 years old and lives in Yakima. And then the FFL's didn't talk for 2 weeks. Then the persistent heavy snow over Snoqualmie Pass delayed UPS 3-4 days.

But it got here. Kid was surprised and pleased as punch.

I got her a 2-7x Redfield Revolution, but she'd rather shoot the iron sights. I may end up mounting a peep on it if she persists.

My running buddy inherited his grandmothers 722 in 257 Roberts.
With a scope on it the drop in the stock made it slap your jawbone pretty good.
Found a 700 short action wood stock off a BDL and with a little fitting for the sight band on the barrel it dropped right in.

100 grain ballistic tips and RL17 make it a dandy deer rifle.

Congrats to you and your daughter !
