Remington 788 chambered in 223, 24" barrel, 4 clips/magazines, barrel has been glass bedded, stock is great, has Redfield 1 piece scope base, bluing is 95%, has sling studs, great varmint gun. $535.00 + shipping
My favorite 788 is my 30-30Win...with neck sized only brass and carefully worked up handloads and 125 Noslers it is a whitetails worst nightmare out nearly as far as any 308Win with 150s,..got a good old Weaver K4 scope on mine that has Ted Williams name on it from Sears,..my dad spent a whopping $119 on the whole outfit
I have two 788"s in 22-250 and have busted many a coyote over the years with them. They'll shoot a 1/2" group with factory ammo,,or a single ragged hole with good reloads. Tho I have many other varmit guns,,,these are the ones I go to 90% of the time.
A few years back I was out coyote hunting with a friend, and when we got back to the truck carring a couple yotes,,, I found out I had somehow lost my clip. Man,,,,I was not leaving without that clip. I retraced my steps back till I finnaly found it laying on the ground. Took me nearly two hours of good hunting time,,,but I wasn't leaving it out there. New clips are hard to find!!

I decided to "Spoterize" a Brit .303 military rifle---Bishop Butt,modified military forearm--aftermarket scope rail(no drilling required)--Savage scope,-- Gun+scope+mount+stock+ labor= 250.00
The next day after completing my labor of love,I took it to work to show a parttime gun dealing friend of mine------after being NICE,he said "let me show you something"----out of the box came a R-788 in .243,complete with mounts and rings and Weaver 4 power scope-----------everything for sale at under 100.00--(well heck yes I bought it)--some 35 years later,I sold it for 600.00
P.S. I still have a 788 in 222------------not for sale
