A follow-up to the Remington 710, the Remington Model 770 is an economy hunting rifle in Remington's 700 series of rifles. Upgrades include a stainless steel action and barrel and optional camouflage finish. Mounting a bipod on the front of the Remington 770 provides a stable shooting platform for long-range shooting for target practice and hunting. Most aftermarket bipods are made to be readily detachable, and, as the Model 770 also comes factory-equipped with sling swivel studs, can be attached with the turn of a screw.
