Remington Model 721

I was Lucky Enough to Inherit a Remington model 721 30-06 that belonged to my wife's grandfather. It was made in March 1955. The Bausch and Lomb 2.5X8 scope was made in 1958.

Wonderful trigger, can't wait to shoot it.

Wonderful to have a firearm from your Granddad.

Edit: your wife's granddad, but still quite special. I would give just about anything to have one of my Granddad's guns. Sadly, I never had the opportunity. He was a great man and incredible hunter.

Nice score. Tempered by the sense of loss of a family member.

Very nice! The precursor to the model 700.

I have Dad's 721, and the barrel markings put it at 1954 if I remember right. It has a Weaver (I think) fixed 4 power scope on it. It's a deer harvesting little number.

Great rifle...you're gonna love it.
 
Nice old gun, I have only seen one, around 45 years ago. A friend had one in .222 Rem. I think it was the predecessor to the M 700.
 
oh, yeah - I have one that my dad gave to me and I think it was passed on to me also. But I think the short gun is old enough to be called an old ammo. model 870 WingMaster all purpose marine magnum. mounted a four power scope to it. It is a great gun.

Fine rifle!

Can't say "fine old rifle," since my '03 is fixin' to be 100 years old (in 2018) and I refuse to consider it old, really.
