Depends on what your intended purpose is. For hunting and general plinking just pick whatever floats your boat. If you are wanting something to customize later on, I suggest doing some research on availability and cost of aftermarket components.


The issues you listed are not limited to the 700, it's more of a mass produced, factory rifle issue (There isn't a single manufacture immune to those types of quality control issues).
