  • Personally I would recommend either a Remington 700 over the 783. There's nothing wrong with the 783, but the 700's fit, finish as well as the overall quality is just superior and I'm a firm believer in the "buy once, cry once" philosophy, especially with firearms. If you buy the 783, my bet is that as you get a little more serious about shooting, you'll end up buying a 700.

  • With all that said, if you're not hell bent on buying a Remington, I personally would go with a Tikka T3 (there are many, many models). Overall it's about the same as a Remington 700 in terms of quality, but the bolt action is just silky smooth and the trigger pull is wonderful. I'm biased because I'm a bit of a Tikka fan, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

  • In regards to the .308 calibre, again I'm a bit biased because my rifle is in .308 but regardless, I think .308 is the way to go. It's easily found, and comes in a variety of weight from (approximately) 120gr to 200gr so you have a choice of choosing a lighter bullet for smaller game or a heavier bullet for larger game.

  • To pass the time while your PAL/RPAL is being processed, I strongly suggest buying high quality safety equipment You don't have to break the bank, but don't skimp. Apart from that I'd say buy a good soft case, and later down the road you can buy a hard case (my personal favourite is the Pelican 1750). Here's a little list....

  • Ear protection: Howard Leight Impact Sport and Howard Leight earplugs (Personally I use both-- you only get one pair of ears!)

  • Eye protection: Smith Aegis Arc (DS Tactical is a great company to deal with)

  • Hard case: Pelican 1750 (Production Case is a nice Canadian company with prices way better than anywhere else and great customer service)

  • Bipod: Harris Engineering (widely considered the best bang for your buck product-- I use the 9-13 inch because I'm a bit taller, but most people like the 6-9)

  • Soft case: Cabela's drag bag-- great product at a great price.

  • Torque wrench: VERY important in my opinion, as I see way too many people over-torquing their gear (i.e. scope mount screws) and messing things up. Wheeler Torque Wrench-- this is what I use. It's reasonably priced and I use it all the time when I'm working on my rifle. I know plenty of people say they're not necessary, but they'll save you from major headaches in the future.

  • Bonus: When you buy your scope, DO THIS to level it. I've tried all kinds of methods, but this by far the best (assuming your rifle is levelled first). It's so simple, but so effective.

    Anyway, I hope this helps. I'll check back in a little bit (studying for finals right now) if I think of anything else.

i might get some flack for this, but i am extremely happy with the [utg 3-9x32] ( the qd rings are great. a stick of loctite (blue stuff) will keep the threads from loosening. be gentle, vortex and leupold fanboys.

u/gsg9dotca · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

You're best bet for a cleaning kit is to get one of the deluxe versions. They only cost ten bucks more but you're good for this and future purchases.

Hard case protects a bit better but soft is fine to.

Patches come with the kit. Unless you're using Otis or some other brand that requires special patches get what ever is one sale. They're all the same.

You'll usually get a small bottle of oil with the kit. 3in1, Hoppe's, or Remington are all fine. The expensive stuff doesn't really do much other than waste your money.

Slings are for carrying your gun in the bush. At the range they generally want you to move you gun while cased. Get a piece of string and test what looks/feels right. Most slings will come with 6" of adjustment. You don't want it to be overly long that the excess flops about but to short isn't handy either. Measure the interior dimension of your sling swivels so you get the right width. A cheap nylon one will work the same as a hand tooled leather one but leave you more money for ammo.

Get a silicone gun & reel cloth for wiping your gun down before you put it in the safe.

that should be about it to get you started. have fun

u/MadePancakesOnce · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

for the ear pro, get some electronic ones for the outer layer, and you can crank up the volume so you can still hear somewhat. I have these, and they're excellent

if the gun is in mint condition and you want to keep it that way, I'd say get a cheap hard case. I have some cheap ones and some expensive ones, and I'd say there's not much benefit to an expensive case unless you're protecting a delicate optic

as far as I know, any type of gun oil should be sufficient for any rifle.

I removed cosmo from my milsurps by soaking the metal bits in windex, but there are plenty of effective methods. I didn't bother with the wood though so can't help you there

tipton makes excellent cleaning products, I have their .30 cal carbon fiber rod and am satisfied

to avoid rusting during storage, give all the metal parts a light coat of oil before storage, and inspect it every week or two. I've been told that the foam in a hard case will attract moisture, so maybe store it outside the case

Red dot from amazon

This scope usually sells for around $149~$169 + taxes at most retailers in Canada.
You now save around 50% or more!

Currently you can get it on Amazon Canada for $99.89 + taxes (Free Shipping from / Prime eligible)

Then you get the $40 Trophy Bucks (Canadian) Mail-in Rebate!
"Through October 31, 2017, save $40 on any purchase of a Trophy or Trophy Xtreme product via mail-in rebate."

Getting this (awesome) Red Dot Sight for between $70 and $76 CAD after taxes (depending on province) is a phenomenal deal!

This Red Dot sight is for shotguns, rifles, handguns - and is not a cheapo air-soft model.


u/mrcpu · 1 pointr/canadaguns

This is the optic I have. It fits nice however I think I need to adjust my eye relief a bit. Over all I'm very happy with it and it fits in the original bag so I'm happy.

u/Norway_Canada · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

My scope was on sale for $130. Its a pretty good scope. Has red/green illumination, quick connect mounts, comes in a nice compact package with instructional manual, batteries and with flip up blinds and a sun shade.

The foregrip was given to me by a friend. I know nothing about it.

u/I_LIKE_THINGS_OFTEN · 5 pointsr/canadaguns

Red dot :

Zero’ed with slugs. Seems to do just fine but glass is already cracked. Going for a more high end dot once this one goes completely unusable.

Grip :

Had to trim a bit the screws given with it, as they were in the way of the spring mechanism in the handguard. Pleased with it.

10 round mag :

Haven’t shot it yet, but cycled the rounds perfectly by hands. Fits good, only thing is mag has to be centered or tilted up front to get out. Won’t come out if you have the gun pointed at the sky and only pushing the mag release button.

u/kewee_ · 5 pointsr/canadaguns

Your number one priority should be to buy a GOOD pair of glasses (ANSI or ballistic Vo rated) and a GOOD pair of earmuff/plugs.

I'd look for Elvex Avion or Go-Specs II and Howard Leight Impact Sport earmuffs for something good and inexpensive.

u/visibl3ghost · 6 pointsr/canadaguns

And ditch the OEM scale that comes with the kit, go for this or this. A digital scale makes weighing your charges much easier and quicker.

Notice how they're exactly the same thing as the Hornady or Frankford Arsenal, except for fall less $$. Everything nowadays comes out of the same factories in the East, and resellers just slap their label on and charge whatever they think their targets are willing to pay. '

I personally got that Smart Weigh and it works great.

u/SpectreBallistics · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

A muzzle brake which reduces muzzle climb and recoil will make it louder pretty much no matter what. Ones with ports or baffles which are slanted backwards tend to be a bit louder than brakes which vent straight out the side. Doesn't matter what muzzle device you use, make sure you have excellent ear protection. These are fantastic.

Our Hex Brake might suit your needs.

u/Harnisfechten · 1 pointr/canadaguns


save yourself the headache of rings, buy this:

the dovetail on the marlin 795 is sorta shallow, I mounted my scope with the cheap rings it came with and after a couple hundred rounds it had slid back half an inch, ruining zero.

Switched to this mount, stayed solid for hundreds more rounds, survived a day of Mapleseed.

To mount it, just look on top of the receiver of your Marlin 795, you will see a sort of ridge or rail. That's an 11mm dovetail mount. Common on air rifles and .22's. Scope mounts slide on and you tighten the screws, similar to a picatinny rail, just without the slots, and narrower.

u/plaidpaint · 13 pointsr/canadaguns

Howard Leight Impact Sport are pretty well regarded.

And on a good sale.

u/NoxiousDogCloud · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I have one of these, and for the budget minded it's not a bad deal. I think you'd be taxed to get 8 guns in there, but it's doable. Just don't put the popular one at the back or you'll have to empty the safe just to get at it.

And if you're looking for a storage cabinet, you could knock some shelves together and just use this thing to store ammo. It's handy.

A month or two ago they had the 8-gun safe on sale, so I upgraded to that. They're about the same size.

Don't forget a dehumidifier!

u/DerpinyTheGame · 1 pointr/canadaguns

Depending on where you are there are some Allen safety glasses made to wear over your regular ones, not the best but they work perfect for me. I should say they cost me 15$

u/tletang · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I like to use the Otis pull through cleaning kit. I normally use hoppes 9 after a range visit and depending on how much I shoot a firearm I occasionally soak it in Wipe out

I pretty much never use a brush any more with this cleaning method, it's easier and quicker I find than scrubbing with a rod.

u/humanefly · 1 pointr/canadaguns

Maybe one of those little Otis cleaning kits?

I was going to say an Ontario SP10 Marine Raider Bowie because you can use it like a machete to clear your way through thick brush, or a small axe but apparently they've like doubled in price in the past decade. I suppose that's to be expected

u/MuthaFunk · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I use both of these together for indoor shooting and am happy for the price point.

Together they give me the right amount of reduction but allowing clear hearing as the electronic system in the Leights amplifies the sound and the somewhat flat response of the Alpine plugs keeps everything still sounding right.

u/zod201 · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I use these electronic ear muffs. They work quite well but sometimes you have to double up if the guy next to you has a big boom stick. Gloves I use Mechanix, they're cheap and good.

u/About_35_Ninjas · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I’ve been using this guy on a .22, 30-30, and 12GA and it’s held zero through it all. It’s original intentions was for my .22 but figured I’d try it out on the others. Been waiting for it to break considering it’s price comparison to my aimpoint. Right now, the Riorand is the better product.

u/IBX · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

Sure! I bought the rifle from an auction for $655 and it already had the telescoping stock and side rail (which I will still link).

[Muzzle Brake] (

Magwell Adapter

Side Rail

Short Optic Mount

Bushnell TRS Red Dot

Shoots very well, very little kick and have never had a FTE or FTF. I just got the red dot, so I'm excited to try that out soon.

u/CDN_IT · 1 pointr/canadaguns

Best bet will be to go the (prime) route which others have mentioned.

or if you know someone in the states you can get it for $55 USD with a 25% off mail in rebate from Bushnell.

u/kliman · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I don't see a scale in there, so I assume you are using the dipper that it came with.
I would very much recommend an upgrade to a small scale like this. I weighed a bunch of tests with the dipper and they were off by enough that I'm sure you'd see it in your groups.

u/muzzz · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

On hearing protection, try to get items actually marketed for shooting. Don't just use generic ear plugs, muffs or whatever as they won't block the correct types of sound frequencies efficiently or properly; whilst blocking others.

These are a strong favourite for over-ear muffs around here.

Some people will double these up with some in-ear plugs too.

u/Andrew9623 · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I didn't actually buy it, but I got a pair of 7.62 x 39 snap caps from my Reddit Secret Santa. I'm excited to see what I'll get from my secret sniper cough cough cough

u/JanitorPants · 1 pointr/canadaguns

Pretty much everyone I know runs these for hearing protection.

The microphone/speaker setup makes it nice to be able to still talk with people while on the line while others are shooting. (Works great for courses as well as you can hear the instructor quite easily).

They cut out all sound once it gets above a threshold that would damage your hearing. There are models that will simply decrease loud sounds without cutting anything out, but they are much more expensive.

u/ImGoingToMakeYouMad · 1 pointr/canadaguns

You can also get a chinese knockoff of this item on amazon for half the price. I own in and it's pretty good, but I took it off after a while because red dots just weren't my thing.

u/Wood_Buffalo · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I use Howard Leight Impact Pro earmuffs as I too was a tad concerned at the Impact Sport's NRR of of 22. The Pro earmuffs have a significantly better NRR of 30 and while they're wider, I don't notice any difference in cheek weld compared to the Impact Sport version.

u/Dumplati · 1 pointr/canadaguns

Thanks for the help.

Went with the following.

BLACKHAWK! Sportster Range Bag, Black

3 Trigger Locks

Chamber Flags


Stapler Staples

Cheap Earplugs

Cleaning Kit Should I also get a collapsible one? Was unable to find one on Amazon.

Eye Protection

Primary Ear Protection

Anything I missed?
[Secondary Ear Protection] ( Incase my main ones fail, or I have a guest.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/canadaguns

Get a combination cable lock like this or like [this](
), then you can leave the gun in the open (not just unlocked but open) case and avoid moisture buildup.

A soft case is a lot more practical if you're not shipping the gun.

Don't worry about cleaning stuff at first.

You'll want a separate ammo box with its own lock. These kinds of locks are cheap and will fit on a plastic toolbox.

3M makes the best ear and eye protection for the money. 3M muffs and gogs are about $5 each and their 1100-series plugs come in a box of 200 individually-wrapped pairs for about $35.

Cheap optics are a waste of money.

A sling is nice to have. You can get one from one of the Chinese sites (fasttech, dx, etc.) for under $10.

A staple gun.

For .22LR, get some snap caps. You can use drywall anchors as a cheaper alternative.

u/noobiola · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

All interesting choices!
I have the Marlin 795 and I installed this cheapo mount for my glass:

Added a little blue loctite on the screws.

u/Talon1256 · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

BAM These electronic earmuffs are good, but I also use foam ear plugs in conjuntion (call me paranoid). They have stereo microphones with variable volume control. They also have a standard earphone jack, so you can plug your phone into it and listen to music.

u/TwoWheelsOrNoWheels · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I double up with foam ear plugs under Howard Leights:

These have amplifiers and speakers built in that automatically cut off on any noise spikes (like shots). After the dB goes back down, the speakers kick in and so I can hear conversation clear as day, even with the plugs as the chat is amplified a bit.

u/NorincoPlinko · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

Hoppe's synthetic blend, the smell is almost non existent and it is non-toxic.

bronze 30 cal brush

Use a wire instead of a rod...., or a boresnake.

the bolt... read your manual, generally very very light oiling, like one drop goes a long way.

Edit - derps.

u/my87target · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I don't deviate from the classics: Got them when they were on sale for $60-something. They're good, but hard to hear people when someone is shooting an SKS indoor, because they clip all sound when it goes off.

u/chefboyoh · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I use this

You just plug in in for a few hours and it heats up and dries out all the silica. Lasts about two months before you have to dry it.

u/Cross94 · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

What kind of rifle and what caliber were you using? Were you shooting off a bench, prone, standing? As for the earmuff issue, just bring a decent pair of foam earplugs next time. Personally I use these.

u/Hnnsquatch · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

I'm rocking this for range trips.

Holds my 1911, P320 and 3 mags for each with plenty of room to spare.

u/svodiwuejkxlkadfuiop · 3 pointsr/canadaguns

Yup. Mine (and others' including /u/nomofica ) all came from the official authorized seller page on

u/TypicalCricket · 7 pointsr/canadaguns

The general consensus seems to be that you can't beat Howard Leight Impact Sport earmuffs.

u/bitchy_witcher · 1 pointr/canadaguns

In your position, I'd buy:

  • CZ 455, Henry lever-action, or another high quality bolt/lever-action .22LR ($500)
  • bipod, sling, bag, cleaning rod+patches, trigger lock, staple gun, ear/eye protection, small lockable metal ammo box ($300, more or less depending on your tastes)
  • range membership ($200-$400)
  • a couple thousand rounds of ammo, various types ($200)

    That leaves enough for a decent low-power scope but you may want to hold off on that purchase, because buying optics is insanely complicated and mistakes are expensive.

    Note that you can't really trigger lock a lever-action; get something like this instead, to lock the lever.
u/b0wzy · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I use a black Condor 42" double rifle bag. For my ammo I just chuck it in a four pistol hard case made by Plano.

Looking for other options for the ammo.

u/joe_canadian · 1 pointr/canadaguns

I have two stack on dehumidifiers.

I was having issues with rust on my Savage rimfire rifles. Haven't had a problem since. I check them every couple of weeks and recharge them every three to six months (summer is worse, of course).
