I have recently purchased a remington 798 in 308. People have talked about fit and finish and the laminated stock. I picked up the display where I bought it at Academy Sports and outdoors and the action was as smooth as glass. When I was going to purchase it they pulled one from back stock and it was a little rougher so I made them give me the display and it has been great. If you are buying a gun and it has a laminated stock on it why should you expect a turkish walnut stock like some people have complained about?? Academy is selling these rifles for only 399.99, you cannot touch a 308 commercial mauser for that. Not a ruger or CZ 550. So people need to stop comparing those as well. I mounted a zeiss conquest on top of mine and it is a tack driver. If I want I may stick a boyds walnut stock on it to make it look a little better. This rifle is a deal and make them give you the display that everyone has worked the action on if you are not happy with the gun they bring you.
They are excellent guns.
They use to mark these Interarms Mark X about 15 years ago but Remington has contracted to exclusively be the US distributor with their name added.
Funny how Remington now admits the Mauser 98 is the finest bolt action made now that they have their name on it.
That really is a great price for that much gun.

Where is Academy?
Too good to be true.
listed as a remington 798. look up the academysports.com
web site to get a location. All that I know is that regionally
the five stores are all in central alabama. I checked the same
gun at two other sporting goods suppliers and both were over 529.00
for the same gun.
