Interesting to me that some find it necessary to replace the trigger on their Model 788s. The one I had came with a very nice trigger and was plenty accurate. Some have criticized the Model 788 for having rear locking bolt lugs because this location can cause case stretching more/faster than more conventional front locking bolt-actions do. I didn't find it to be a big problem but case trimming did have to be performed more frequently in mine.
$250.00 is a super great price for a nice Model 788 in my neck of the woods!
