From 1978 to 1982 (or there abouts) Remington made the Sportsman 78 bolt action rifle. It is a cheaper Model 700. About two years ago, I found one that was like new in .270 Winchester in the used gun rack at a local gun shop and it was cheap. It appeared to be unfired and it went home with me. I got around to scoping it and took it to the range and it was a tack driver. This rifle is not fussy about what I feed it.

Today I was in another gun shop and saw the same model rifle in .30-06 sitting in the used gun rack. It was like new and came with the original box and the price was cheap. I had a store discount card for $25.00 and applied it to the sale. It came home with me. I hate it when that happens. Take care...

I had one in .243, I really regret letting that one go. Sold it and upgraded to a Model 700 .243. I should have kept it, great feeling stock design and very accurate. Remington made the 78 up until at least 1988, at least I have an '88 catalog with them listed.

They were made from 1984 through 1988 per the Remington link below. Good catch. All the best...
