The remington 770 has a reputation for wearing out very quickly, mechanical failures and poor accuracy. I know of 2 people that bought them one was sold at a profit before ever being fired and the other has been traded in for a Stevens 200 becuase it wouldn't group well.
Altough they seem like a great deal I'd recomend either a good condition used rifle or a Stevens 200 if price is the reason your looking at this rifle.

That Churchill Highlander is a Turkish imported Hardware Store gun from the 80s. As for the quality, I don't know, the Turks can go both ways.

That's very true as far as quality. I do think though that today Turkish guns are moving up in reputation, especially their shotguns. Although Benelli, Beretta, and newer Franchi shotguns may say "Made in Italy" on them, actually a lot of the parts on those guns (including some barrels) are actually made in their contract factorys in Turkey.
