    Ive just been given a 788 in 308. Looking forward to getting it. I hear they are bloody good shooters, in some case's leaving their more expensive 700 model well behind.
    Sounds like parts are thin on the ground though.

    yup the rear locking action and all suggests that the older brother 700 would kick its bum. Urban legend and my only personal experience with one says otherwise.
    Family acquaintance had a short barrel 243-like a "freakin laser" with pretty much any factory ammo you put in it. Maybe why the big green got rid of them?
    Never heard a bad thing about them.
    If the right one came up if have a hard time trying not to get it.

    I have one in 30-30 shoots very well. There is a left hand 788 in 308 for sale in Rotorua.

    yeah this one is a freebie given to me , I have a 30 cal DPT suppressor laying around doing nothing with no home to go to so I might get it threaded, bedded and a trigger job.
    Throw it in the gun safe and use it once or twice a year. For free it's not going to bother me through lack of use..

    Bloody good Shooters are the 788's. So do tell where is this left handed 788/308 John m? Does it have a price tag on it?

    I managed to find a mag for the 222 not that long ago, but was from Canada.
    Western guns (or something like that) I can't find the bizniz card tho.

    Gave them a call but the rifle is a bit on the high side price wise. Thanks for the heads up on it though.

    Strange when they are on the dealers rack they are worth a small fortune but as a trade in suddenly they are worth fuck all.
