Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

well due to some shady internet shit I only got the 788..both the 700 were sold for the same price as my high bid..but not to me....and the auction ends as the lot hits the numbers...not all at once at 5 pm like I thought....item goes on the block and then it ends..idk how they figure what time it is...its kinda shady I thought but...so im gonna see if I can find a good stock..magpul or boyds or something for it

I'm not a disiplined marksman by any stretch, but: I'd go with #3.
Bull barrel, 24" (your younging may handle better) and...pretty wood stock.
He'd have to be extra careful protecting the wood and it's not free floating though.
#1's tacticool artificial stock" (I'm old skool) will absorb more abuse.

So, the general concensus is that you can't go wrong with 1 or 3..the 700s
If they're about the same price....then Dad, let the young man decide!!!!
How cool would that be??

DB,
What I meant for support was aftermarket addons.

For the R700 action, you can get triggers, stocks, detachable mag setups, pre fit barrels, scope rails, and on and on.

R788, the aftermarket selection not on the same level.

Even for your Tikka there is not the same level of aftermarket upgrades as there is the the R700.
