I am in the market for a new ML and I was going to buy a TC omega in black/blue.
But I just found a brand new Remmington model 700 at the local gunshop. It is black/stainless and the same price as a black/blue omega.

Im looking for some knowledge about the 700, and how it performs/compares to other MLs
thanks

I know a couple guys who have them and they really like 'em. Personally I like the break open styles better. I'm not sure but I thought Rem stopped building the 700ML several years ago. If it has been setting in inventory for a few years you might be able to get it much cheaper.

Personally, I believe they are both great guns! I have them both. The real difference being that the Omega is considered to be somewhat new technology and the Remington is old technology. The Remington is considered a 'plunger' type rifle and can use all three ignition systems, while the Omega is a 209 ignition system.

If I were going to buy a new rifle and between those two i would have to suggest the Omega.

I have a 700ML stainless and put in the 209 conversion and love it. but a new break open would prolly be a little easier to clean but the 700 aint too bad to clean so I aint up grading

I have had both and the Omega was just a shade more accurate than the Remington.
Buy a shade I mean maybe a 1/2" in group size. No whitetail in this state (or any other) would ever notice the difference...

Thanks for the responses! I think i will go with the omega, after reading what you guys have to say.

The Rem 700 is new in box, but it was won in a raffle and never shot. the owner is now consigning it. Thats why its a " new " older gun.
