The articles I've read about the rifle were all quite favourable but I wouldn't be leaving the included scope onboard for a heartbeat. The scopes on "those package deals" is where their profit margin sit, they are not of the best quality in any shape or manner,saying that, you may get a good one
Just be prepared to replace the scope.

Remington

The guy I hunt with has a 770 Remington in a 7mm. He left the cheap scope on and they both shoot very well. He and the gun produce an inch to an inch and a half group at a 100 yards pretty consistantly.

The only draw back I have seen is the stock. He inadvertantly broke the trigger guard off last elk season and had to purchase a new stock since its all one piece. The good news in that is he was able to lose the ugly grey stock in favor of the new black stock Remington is now making.

One other surprising note was when he changed the stock out and took it to the range, nothing had changed. Shots were grouping just fine.

I agree that a new scope of higher quality should be considered, but his has worked just fine so far. Time will tell though.
