Welcome to BGH.

The 721 was a good rifle.

The 721 is pretty close to a 700, the biggest difference I'm aware of is the extractor ring in the bolt face. Rather than having an extractor milled into the bolt face, the 721 has a ring of rolled/stamped metal that clips into the inside of the bolt face.

This ring is relatively weak compared to a 700 and occasionally breaks.

I thought all the original 721's came in blued steel.
