A Bass Pro Exclusive! The Remington Whitetail Pro Model 770 Rifle/Scope Youth Combo is the perfect instant gratification choice for any smaller framed hunter itching to load his new gun and start shooting. Fast forward through the sometimes exhausting process of selecting, mounting, and sighting a scope and components, Whitetail Pro rifles comes with a pre-mounted and boresighted 3-9x40mm riflescope. Built to Remington's rigorous standards for accuracy and reliability, the Whitetail Pro continues the legacy of Remington's popular 700 and 710 models with modern advancements for even more accuracy and reliability. The ergonomically contoured Realtree AP HD synthetic stock features a raised cheekpiece for rapid scope to eye alignment and grip texture in all the right places. With its 20'' six-groove button-rifled barrel, solid steel receiver, and crisp, single-stage trigger, this rifle is ready to punch tight groups in any target. The Whitetail Pro delivers superior action strength by combining a ''three rings of steel'' design with three locking lugs that secure the ultra-smooth bolt directly into the barrel. The short, 60º bolt throw with an easier-to-cam design delivers faster follow-up shots. Finally, the detachable, dual-stack steel box magazine features a more durable latch for longer life.

Do not buy this rifle. The model we got, The .243 kicks like a mule, and is not a good starter for a child. The bolt came completely out with the locking mechanism engaged, the ammo will not go into the chamber properly, and when you cycle the bolt to eject the fired cartridge, the bolt hangs up on the next round. I have to remove the magazine to pull the bolt back and eject the cartridge. I"m glad the other reviewers got a good rifle, but unfortunately we got stuck with a piece of junk! BUYER BEWARE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by wrathius Nice beginner rifle
I bought the .243 youth for my wife. It fit her well and most importantly she felt comfortable with the rifle. After shooting 40 rounds down range I must say the rifle has grown on me. I was rather upset with the sticky bolt and how sloppy both the bolt and magazine felt out of the box. But for the price tag I really shouldn't complain. Remington says its bore sighted but at 50 yards the scope was no where to be seen on paper. After my spotter said I was WAY left of paper I was finally able to get the scope sighted in at just 6 shots. After that I'm excited to say this .243 is a smooth tight shooting rifle I know my wife and kids will shoot for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by swmohunter1211 excellent for youth
I purchased this rifle for my 8 year old four years ago. This rifle is as accurate as any of my hunting rifles. It is comfortable to shoot and doesn't kick hard. I've shot the cheap single shot youth rifles and they kick hard and the kids flinch when they shoot. If you're introducing a kid to hunting this is a great rifle. Would have given 5 stars but when the clip is full the bolt doesn't come back smooth, but thats a minor thing.

The remington 700 ADL Combo in .243 with a 24" inch barrel is listed at 7.25 lbs and the Savage youth .243 Axis Combo with a 22" barrel is listed at 6.8 lbs so It seems odd this smaller similar gun is listed at 8.25
I assume this would be for deer hunting? I will say this I live in MO and have killed more deer with a .243 I bought for my wife then probably any other gun I have owned. That being said I want you to know that bullet placement is the key. I have hunted long enough I pick my shots carefully and try to get neck shots. The .243 bullet is typically 80 to 100 grain and considered a light bullet so it may not do as well by shooting in the heart area. I started with a Marlin 30.30 lever gun and these are great out to about 150 yards and shooting in the heart area.
ordinarily id say yes this would be a good rifle for her but it may be a lil to big i would recomend the marlin 795. its light weight,and very durable,and very inexpensive at only about 150 and the stock would be just right for her
Absolutely. The 243 is a fantastic whitetail caliber and is widely used when a flat-shooting, long range medium-sized game rifle is called for. The 770 has adequate accuracy to make those shots within 300 yards, properly sighted in.
The truth is, for an average-sized person neither has significant recoil "kick". The 243 and 30-30 are the sort of chamberings you can shoot for hours without getting sore, provided you are of at least average size. The 243 is well-known as a "youth" gun in that it produces negligible recoil with most loads.
