    You might even do a search here. Seems they have been discussed. Large cap mags may be a bit of a problem. 10 rounders used to be hard to find but available. the key point I remember from the discussions was along the lines of this may be a fine hunting rifle, but it is not up to alot of sustained rapid fire. This is not a military clone by any frame of the imagination, and will not hold up to 1000's and 1000's of rounds being run thru it in short order. Other's may disagree. As a retired navy gunnersmate (small arms and major caliber guns 3" 5" 8") and one who has shot the 760 Gamemaster, I also do not believe it is meant to be used like a military service weapon. jus sayin'

    My view on this type of rifle is that it is correctly not a military rifle. However it is more than adequate to be used for defense and of course as a stepping stone to obtain more significant weapons in a SHTF scenario. If all hell breaks loose I would not be afraid to defend myself with such a rifle w/10 rd. mag. Anybody have one thay would like to sell??

    Around here they usually can be found for about $400.00 to $500.00. My understanding is that you can figure on about 800 to 1000 rounds and then start having problems with the bolt. 10 round clips were about $30 to $35 and not always available. On the other hand if 30-06, then the 270 and 25-06 are interchangeable and will work; or 243, 7mm08 or 308 are interchangeable.

    How hard is it to remove the barrel? Can you find some parts guns on gunbroker to scavenge from? I grew up shooting AR-15's, so having a rifle that cannot be worked on easily just makes no sense to me.

    When I decided on a shotgun, I found that Remington model 48's were really cheap because of two reasons: Nobody wanted a recoil operated shotgun anymore since gas operated ones were more prevalent, and that they could only chamber 2 3/4" shells. Most hunters now need 3" shells because steel doesn't fly as nicely as lead.

    So, I found a couple of them, even ones without stocks or barrels, and now have enough parts to keep a couple shotguns running indefinatey.

    Maybe that's what you could do with the 760?

    BTW, I noticed that there are several Winchester Model 100's for sale on gunbroker in the $250-300 range. They are .308 semi-autos. You don't see them in the local gun shops around here because we cannot hunt with semi-autos in Pennsyltucky.
