    The uber-coolness of pump action center-fire rifles cannot be overstated. :cool:

    You're right. These are cool rifles.
    Got my 760 from a forum member. He says "I'll put a bsa on there and boresight it no charge."
    Me; Ok. Sweet. That'll get me shooting.

    So I get it back to the range and it pops the 4" steel at 100 yards no problem. I keep looking for a reason to change the scope, but it's still on there and still hitting 4" circles. When/if it blows up I'll do something like a Nikon or Vortex. This gun rides on the atv and it ain't gettin a Zeiss.

    When I was a teenager, all the kids who were trying to be cool thought that a 742 in .30-06 with a big ol' scope was what you had to have to kill our local non-existent deer. I was the oddball that preferred the 760; specifically the carbine in .308, with irons. Never got one. The kids who were already cool without trying were using Marlin 336's.

    Lately, my centerfire pump-action wants lean more toward one of those reproductions of the Colt Lightning, in .357 Mag, please. But I'm probably too tight to spend that much.

    When I was a kid my pops had a 742 carbine in 30/06 with a television screen Redfield on it back when we didn't have any deer around to shoot at, he musta been a cool kid. I loved those 760s too though!

    1950's 35 rem gamemaster for the win.
    Carries like a lever gun, points like a Lazer.
    This thread has huge potential.

    I have always wanted one of these goofy things:

    94A7CF75-BDC1-4320-8FBE-A5ECFB695807.jpeg

    7615 in 5.56 that uses AR/STANAG magazines. I have no idea what I would do with it, I just want one.

    Don't forget the Browning BPR or Savage 170 rifles.

    Love some of those old pumps yall have posted!

    I did a bunch of work for Troy Industries several years back and they gave me one of their pump AR-15s. It shoots great, but it is a handful and extremely slow running an assault course.

    That is a very versatile rifle.
    Full house 5.56, then drop down to subsonic 77gr heavies for quiet time. I like choices.

    It is fun to shoot and very accurate. It is also extremely well designed and built. The butt- stock is super trick...

    I like your ammo ideas. Im gonna get some 77g stuff and mess with it. Thx for tip!

    I have a BPR in .308, love it. Have see thru rings with receiver mounted peep sight under 2-7 scope. Took a nice 8 Pt from the ground at 18 yards on a PA hillside.

    PA was the state that made pump rifle sales, semiautos were illegal for decades. Remington sold more pumps in PA than most other states combined.

    As an aside I worked up a BPR load with 220 round nose Sierras, MOA at 100 and mimics the Krag ballistics.

    Added a junior cousin recently - Rem Fieldmaster which is a dream to shoot.

    And dont get me started on all my lever guns . . . Semiautos are fun but levers and pumps are a hoot !!

    Being left-handed I've liked pump rifles for a long, long time. I've owned about five Remington 760s and currently have a .30-06 carbine made in the mid 60s. With a ten round magazine it can send some lead downrange pretty quickly.

    I once had a Timberwolf in .44 magnum that a friend talked me out of, wish I had kept it. I also had a Taurus Thunderbolt in .45 Colt that work flawlessly, one of the few apparently.

    I've always wanted one of those stainless 357 Timberwolf pumps. One of the few pumps that I want that I have never owned.
    Been hoping for years that Rossi would make a clone to match the stainless lever they are always sold out of.

    I have one I can part with. They can be finicky, since back in the day, they used several different catches. PM me your name and address and I will ship it today.

    Gunbroker had quite a few when I was shopping...short and long mags.
    The challenge there was not paying a fortune for one.

    @premise I am pretty sure that I shot a sweet little .38/.357 pump at Billy's last month, and it was the proverbial shizzznit.

    You can keep them. My first rifle was a 270 Rem Mdl 7600 which remains to this day the most painful rifle I have ever shot. It was also very easy to short shuck. I love pump shotguns, especially Wingmasters and have used them all my life but allways had problems with the 7600

    I had one and it was Big fun. They were essentially 870s in rifle form. I had a 16 inch '06 also, very effective Not Big fun. These pumps are the only action actuated guns that you never have to remove a hand to shoot. Unlike Bolts and Levers. I only own .22s now but maybe I'll re-look that .223 Patrol Rifle again...….

    Check out the 500 S&W Towner pump on YT!!!
