Nice. I'd think a 4x scope would be a better match for that cartridge though. Still cool.

I agree.

Nice rifle. I had almost forgot that they made these in .35 Whelen. My oldest friend has a rebuilt Mauser in that cartridge and it's a real game big game stomper.

I like it! :clap:
I agree on the point about a 4X scope.
Also I would refrain from relying on it as a survival rife with such an uncommon caliber.

Treś Awesome!

Seriously though. That deserves a scope. Better to shoot buffalo from a distance.

Id lose the sling dripping off the barrel. Its a pet peeve but an accident waiting to happen has already occurred.

I may be wrong, but I think France is one of those countries where you can't have arms chambered in military calibers as a civilian, hence the non-standard chambering. What may seem like a weird or uncommon cartridge to us in the States, is like .30-30 or .270 in Europe, not military standard, but very common as a civilian cartridge.

I dig it, it sure offers some big thumpin' in a quick package :!: I agree that a few 10 round mags would make it more user friendly.

Great rifle. I like the eotech on it. The whelen isn't really a distance cartridge anyway, but it's a great up close hunting cartridge. May as well put on a sight that's fast on target and great in low light.

If you're looking for some extra punch, try the Hornady Superformance ammo. I've run some through my 35 and it's got more pop than other factory ammo. Although standard loaded 35 whelen should be fine for about anything you'd hunt.

It's been a while since I owned a pump Remington. I seem to recall they make a sling attachment that screws to the front of the pump tube. It's not a magazine and would allow the barrel to free float. Can't imagine that sling swivel clamped on the barrel helping accuracy any.

^Truth. You could do that with the front and throw one of Noveske's QD Sockets onto the rear, and use it like a modern carbine.

Hey, if it works for a rifle from 1947...

A sling that moves tighter or looser with every pump is a fucking pain in the arse, tried it.. didn't work for me.

This is my 7600P (in .308)... I've got a few 10rnd mags, haven't decided or put funds aside for an optic yet though.
I've actually got so many mags I'm looking at getting a custom bandoleer made, as I can't find any mag pouches that fit these mags nicely. Anyone point me to some factory made mag pouches before I shell out on a custom job?

I've got two of the DA SR98 pouches, they just fit, and are less than ideal because the bungee straps are meant for a smaller magazine they are super tight and hard to slip off quickly. The .50cal would be huge, I'm making an assumption that the DSR (which is .338 IIRC) will also be to big if they're 10rnders or too small if theyre 5rnders, the SR25 ones would be too thin and tall, and the SR98 pouch with velcro is too small (ordered a couple and had to return them)

Heartbreak!

Might have to give Kitbag a call about making you some custom ones, mate.

OP, nice 7600, .35 Whelen - Wow! 8-)

Dude, the tube the pump handguard rides on. It secures the barrel to the action but apart from giving the pump handguard a place to ride, it serves no other purpose. The nut at the end of the tube can be replaced to install a sling swivel.

I don't know what size your 7600's ten round mags are, but I use the old Vietnam era m16 twenty round mag pouches for my PSL. The pouch will hold two of the PSL mags almost perfectly.

Gewehr 43 - 10 rd rifle mag pouches should work.

Image

FN-49 mag pouches would work too.

So would French MAS 49/56 mag pouches.

Same basic dimensions anyway.

Check out eBay for the G43 mag pouches, there's several auctions going on...not exactly a whole lot of those rifles left for shooters/collectors to buy them for.

Took a quick look at eBay and for four pouches the auctions are at between $30 and $50 (so basically $10 apiece).

They're all leather and they're not made out of some high speed ballistic nylon, but they would work.

Jor-el: Unfortuneately, 7600 and 7615´s don´t work like that. The front end sits on a tube that rides on a smaller tube and the whole tube that seems to stick out in front and where you can add a sling..... It WILL move along with the forend if you slide it back. There is no fixed tube that will stay in place on these, unlike 870´s.

Here´s a (small :( ) pic of one with the forend in the rear position and the action open:
