An old Remington Model 721

They are wonderful old rifles that give up nothing to rifles made today. Very accurate, and completely reliable... Maybe not as fancy, but every bit as functional

I had one in 270 that I used for years and had some work done to refinish it. It was my first rifle. I foolishly traded it in on something new, and regretted it ever since. Then a couple of years ago, I spotted a 721 in the used rack of my favorite gun shop. I picked it up and sure enough it was my old 721 of 25 years ago. Same condition, same scope. Great price, too. Needless to say I bought it in a heartbeat. I replaced the cheap Bushnell scope with a Leupold, and gave it to my son as his first centerfire rifle... It's now his favorite rifle. I've got a 721 in 30-06 in the gun safe that will be his someday too...

I figured that since it had showed up again, that it was meant to be and that someone upstairs was looking out for me.... :-) :-)
