Remington 600 Mohawk

the first model 600 was sold in 1964-67 the 660 was 1968-71 rare as hens teeth. Have not seen one that shoots poorly love shooting them hate working on them wait till you have to adjust the trigger pull. Family owned a gun store for a while they did not sell very well but to someone who has to walk or throw it in a plane you will like em alot.

Thankfully, the trigger seems fine to me. No adjustment needed. The dates of production that I've found are kind of screwy. I saw the same dates you posted. 64-67 for the 600 and 68-71 for the 660. My understanding was that the 660 replaced the 600. Remington's site gives production dates for the 600 Mohawk as 72-79. Did they "reintroduce" the 600 Mohawk after the 600 was replaced by the 660? Th 660 would have been out of production by 72. Kind of like the .280 Remington (aka the 7mm Remington Express) was "reintroduced"? I guess it doesn't matter in the long run. I bought the gun. I like the gun. I guess that's all that counts. Thumbs up

year smear

those years I got from the Remington history web site. A quick phone call to an old old friend and he seems to think that they did reintroduce them for a short time and that he remebered them selling even worse than in the 60s. I have shot 200 grain 308 partitions in wet paper and compared it to a 338 Win mag and I am hard pressed to see a difference. Yes I know 308 is somewhat slow but what great S.D. I am a huge fan of the 358. I own a 600 in 308, 222 1964 Centenial and a 660 in 350 Rem mag. With the generous amount of recoil the little 660 has I have loadeed down to Win 358 speeds and can see about a 200fps ish difference from 350 full house loads using the Hornady 250 grain bullet other 250 grain bullets I can get 450fps ish difference. 200 is not a big dif but my shoulder can sure tell. Also the 358 can be reloaded with 357/38 pistol bullets. When run up to high velocity it will split a coyote in half and when slowed to 2400fps it becomes a very nice recoiling deer rifle but still a very big hole. No matter what you choose the setup you have is great and looks like it will just get better. Oh there is a 375-308 wildcat out there. Many options If you stay with the 308 case and very few of the other problems.
