remington m7 predator?

local shop has one of these and has had it for a while now, price is down to just under 600.... seems like a really nice, lightweight, predator/deer/ whatever rifle, i am also a big fan of the .243.. anyone have experience with these? im a long time fan of the 700, but never shot a m7... any input would be great

The Model 7 is a fantastic little rifle. I had one for a number of years, lost it in the financial dynamic following a divorce. Mine was a great example of a lightweight hunting rifle. Very handy, very shootable, and it absolutely loved Remington green-box ammo.

I was looking at picking up a model 7 as well. Don't hear much about them though. I'd love to see more people pipe up about them, I'll keep an eye on this thread.

The model 7 ( if my understanding is a compact version of the model 700) that being said it should be great. Though I have never used one myself my friend has one I. 308 and boy does it shoot. I will think the predator is a camp fluted short action. Should be a good buy if it is in good shape.

Rem 7 is the youth size model made in the likeness of the 700. Had one in 243, for the wife that became my ex. She traded it for a block just before we split. Good rifle. I liked it so much that I bought a 700 in 243 to replace it. Both are extremely accurate and nearly identical except for minor differences. The stock on the 7 is too short for me to shoot comfortably I am 6'4" so the 700 fits me better. If the short stock fits you it is a good rifle. If you are taller than about 5'8" the 700 might fit you better.

Will any of the hundreds of aftermarket stocks for the 700 fit the model seven?

Not without modification. The Model 7 has a narrower receiver.
