Our Assessment: The epitome of strength and beauty among bolt action rifles, the famous Model 76 is well built, pleasing to the eye and deadly accurate.

This is a Model 76 bolt action rifle from Dakota Arms. Dakota made their way into the rifle market producing high-quality rifles at “affordable” prices, though their quality means that affordable is in relation to rifles such as Blaser, Cooper and other high-end manufacturers. Beginning in 1982, they have been known as one of the top makers of bolt action rifles ever since. This example has a 24″ barrel chambered for 7mm-08 Remington with a sturdy synthetic stock and a matte black finish. This is a gorgeous rifle that will make a nice addition to the collection of one lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck in your bidding!
