I would like to get some comments on a Remington 700 ADL.
I think it is an ADL because it is loaded from the top - no floor plate.
The caliber is .270 with wood stock. Looks to be in pretty good condition.
Just don't know much about Remingtons.
Please comment good or bad.

Been hunting with one for 18 years now. Absolutely nothing wrong with it for a hunting rifle.

Good rifle with lots of opportunities for upgrade. Some of them are needed, namely an aftermarket trigger. I have two 700's left in the safe with the necessary upgrades performed, all the others are gone and have been replaced with something else.

They make an outstanding base for a build.

The Remington 700 ADL was my first deer rifle. I now consider it my utility gun due to its accuracy and durability in tough weather. It's as accurate as any of the more expensive rifles that I own.

You can buy more attractive rifles for sure, but you'll be hard pressed to find one that beats the 700 for "out of the box" accuracy.

I'm a fan. I'm also in the minority but I prefer a blind magazine.

A great rifle, I prefer the BDL but there is nothing wrong with this rifle. How many $ for it?

I currently have 3 in the safe - 2 are 25-06's and 1 a 30-06. All are older models. All have had their triggers swapped out and the stocks bedded. All are pin-point accurate.
One of the 25-06's is a first year production model and is an ADL. Consistent groups around .5-.75", smooth (enough) action and is one of my go-to rifles.
GREAT action to build a 'custom' rifle on.
Depending upon when it was made, you could have a very nice rifle with little that needs to be done to it.

That's personal opinion and very debatable. I wouldn't trade a Tikka for a sack full of them.

I have a plain-jane syn-stock .243 ADL, ~2004, with a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 on it. It was my sister's gun but I bought it for her and mounted the scope. It's definitely a shooter and hasn't had a trigger or anything else done to it. My nieces (15 & 20) both killed their first deer with it this past season. I would not hesitate to own another.

Own 3 700's of varying ages. Most of my immediate and extended family shoots rem 700's. To my knowledge none have changed the triggers, had any work done to them, or any problems. I love mine to death and I think people who give them a bad rash are making mountains out of mole hills.

??? The M700 was introduced in '62. The 25/06 in '69.

We made a trade today.
I had a Sig that he wanted for his wife.
Talked to a friend of mine and he said the .270 has quite a recoil. He did not like the kick that the .270 has, but other than that it is a good rifle.
