Added a quality scope to this rifle, sighted it in and holds a pattern equal to a Remington 700. This is a outstanding gun for the money. Well built and the only drawback would be the weight, if that bothers you, which is don't in my case. I would recommend this gun to anyone for competition or hunting. Great buy for Buds.

A 26 inch heavy barreled 308 with adjustable trigger and a model 70 cloned action, how can you go wrong? You can't! At the time of this writing the rifle has a 5 star rating and I couldn't agree more. I had the opportunity to shoot both the Savage Axis and Ruger American before buying this. I didn't really like the light rifles and I didn't group well with them either (others did/do so it must be me). When I saw this I decided to take a chance. Now, I am glad I went with the Marlin X7VH. The rifle shoots like a dream, with the synthetic stock and rubber butt-pad, full power 308 rounds feel like your shooting a 223. The bolt is smooth from the first time you chamber it. I recommend you follow the instructions, clean and oil the bolt and it will cycle like a dream. The safety is smooth, positive and well positioned. The trigger felt light, crisp and i felt no need to adjust it from the factory settings. Mine came with a full length model 70, scope mount base. Top notch quality but tighten it down, from the factory mine was loose. (on forums I have seen this complaint as well) Now the only negative, the stock is a throw away if you want to get serious about your groupings. That said I have consistently shot 1-2 inch groups from a wobbly rest and cheap scope (center-point 4-16 and a cooler with a pillow on it, not exactly cement with sandbags) so i would say that it more then meets the needs of a hunter, which the gun is designed for. With a proper stock, tuned hand-loads and a higher end scope I think it will shoot much better if you want to turn it into a project gun. Boyds has stock offerings for it, I have been eyeballing the thumb-hole forest camo laminate myself. Another thing to note, which some might see as a negative is the bolt handle is small, much smaller then i thought it would be from the photos I have seen. To me its not a big deal, less to get caught on the brush!. Lastly, this was my first purchase online, I was nervous without seeing this rifle first hand but I took the other reviewers word for it. Buds service was excellent. Email updates at every stage. I ordered on a Saturday night and it shipped on Tuesday morning. I would most definitely consider another purchase from Buds if i get the itch for another firearm.

Very nice firearm. For the money you cant beat this rifle. Now with that said the bad is the stock.... it flat out sucks. You can either stiffen it up or replace it but leaving it be really isn't an option. The rifle I received didnt need much sanding to let the barrel free float but being a heavy barrel the stock will touch while using a bipod. I gave the rifle 5 stars because for the money spent you will not find anything put together this well and this quality. Buds service was great and shipped fast.

I have a Winchester 70 in 30-06. The Marlin X7VH is very comparable. The 26" heavy barrel is wonderful, I adjusted the trigger pull down to 2 pounds and it's the equal of my Winchester worked trigger. The Marlin stock is plastic, and definitely limits accuracy out of the box. Boyd's will hook you up for about a hundred bones, floating the barrel and giving it that fine blued steel and wood look. I used the one piece rail that came with the rifle (after remounting it with blue locktite) and mounted a Leapers 4-16x44 on low mounts. Developing loads I felt like I was scattering shots all over creation, but measuring the bad groups, they were just over an inch at 100 yards. It'll do Much better than that! I really like it, am amazed at how smooth the action runs, and am planning on at least two more Marlins in the near future. The price of the thing is ridiculous for how much rifle you get! And Bud's was flawless. Again. 8^)

Having purchased numerous firearms from in the recent past, my purchasing experience went very well. Very timely and efficient and I received exactly what I had purchased, no complaints. As for the Marlin X7VH in 308, I am very impressed with the quality on this sub 350.00 rifle. My expectations have been met and then some. The barrel on this rifle is enormous. I set it up with a Weaver T36 and some Weaver rings for a 50mm. Loctite picatinny rail and rings for a solid mount. My groups were .85 at 100 yards, using handloaded barnes solids 165gr and benchmark powder. I think this rifle will make a great low budget precision rifle for me.
