Accessorizing rifles is an American tradition. While the Remington 770 is an excellent rifle from the factory, it can be improved through numerous different additions and can be shaped for a variety of roles. The Remington 770 is made by one of the premier hunting rifle manufacturers in the world, so it’s no surprise the accessory market is broad.
You should accessorize your rifle with the idea of how you want to use it in mind. A hunting rifle is different than a tactical one, so they have different accessories. Overall, though, there are a few Remington 770 upgrades that will give you the most bang for your buck and would help out the broadest range of owners. And so here are, in our humble opinion, the 4 best Remington 770 accessories on the market.

The Remington 770 is a pretty easy-shooting rifle. Designed to be a bolt-action single-shot rifle fed from a magazine, it’s as simple as can be. The main problem arises when you start using the more powerful rounds that the Remington 770 chambers, and smaller shooters will even find the .243 Winchester a little discomforting to the shoulder.
Most shooters, in general, will deal with some more serious recoil from rounds like the 308 or 30-06. After even a short period of shooting, you are going to develop a bruised shoulder. So anything that can cut that recoil down is handy.
Remington makes a recoil pad for their rifles. This pad will work with the Remington 770, the 700, 7400, and any other Remington centerfire rifle. The recoil reducing pad is made from a Cellular Polyurethane, this material absorbs recoil via a series of cells designed in the pad. This material will greatly reduce the recoil of your rifle to more of a gentle push versus a solid punch to the shoulder.
The Remington 770 recoil pad is extremely lightweight, and it will not be noticed weight wise when added to your rifle. The pad itself is always well made, and extremely durable. It’s capable of taking round after round of fire and is capable of withstanding the elements. So you can hunt with it without issue. It’s one of the best Remington 770 mods you can buy.
UTG tactical bipod
- UTG Tactical OP Bipod, Rubber Feet, Center Height 8.3"-12.7"
- Price: $42.60
- Price as of 10/22/2020 11:09 PDT(more info about ad)
The UTG Tactical Bipod is designed for the budget-conscious shooter who needs something for basic shooting. And since the Remington 770 is a budget rifle, these two are a perfect match. If you are looking for a simple and basic bipod for hunting and plinking then the UTG Tactical will work for you. If you are shooting competition then this will work as well.
The UTG Tactical bipod is made entirely from steel and aluminum. The only rubber and plastic is at the feet, and it’s for good reason. These feet being rubberized makes it easier for the feet to grip different surfaces. The UTG’s solid construction makes it possible to take tons and tons of shooting with it. The bipod’s solid construction doesn’t weigh it down since it’s only about 13 ounces.
The bipod can fold away under the foregrip, and puts itself out the way. The bipod can attach to either a Picatinny rail or a swivel stud on some Remington 770 rifles (a warning: a lot of Remington 770’s don’t come with swivel studs, which you’d need a gunsmith to attach before you can attach this bipod). Hands down, it’s one of the best Remington 770 accessories for the money.
- Leupold Rifleman 4-12x40mm Riflescope, Wide Duplex (56170)
- Price as of 10/22/2020 09:36 PDT(more info about ad)
The Remington 770 is a simple rifle, and it can be fitted with a simple scope. The Leupold Rifleman is just such a scope. The Rifleman is probably one of the most popular Leupold scopes out there. It’s just so simple and easy to use. You are also getting an overall excellent optic for a great price. This optic is a 3 to 9 or 4 to 12 power optic, which provides enough power for most applications.
The Leupold Rifleman (see full specs) has a 40 mm objective lens that provides both a wide field of view and a clear and bright image for the shooter. The scope uses a simple reticle that keeps the optic very simple and is easy to use for any shooter, experienced or not. The duplex reticle is the stereotypical crosshair that everyone associates with a rifle scope. The scope is waterproof, shockproof, and is backed by Leupold’s warranty, which is one of the best in the industry.
The Rifleman has fully multi-coated lenses that offer a clear and bright picture, and when combined with the 40mm objective lens it’s as close to perfect as possible. For the money, this is by far the best scope for your rifle—and one of the overall best Remington 770 accessories period.
Blue Force Gear Vickers Two Point Sling
- Blue Force Gear Vickers 2-Point Combat Sling, Black (BLFVCAS-125-OA-BK)
- Price: $56.99

When you think Blue Force Gear Vickers sling, you probably think tactical. It makes sense the sling is issued to every branch of the military and is in use by law enforcement professionals around the country. The Remington 770 isn’t really a tactical rifle though. It’s a gun designed for hunting. I say the BFG Vickers sling is a fine component for hunters. Nothing says you can’t use a tactical sling for hunting.
The advantages it offers with its quick adjustment is the fact you can easily and silently tighten the sling when climbing a tree stand or over rough terrain. An instant later, you can pull the tab and be ready to shoot. Let’s not forget this is an extremely high-quality sling designed and built to last. The Vickers sling is also compatible with a wide a variety of different attachment systems, so your options aren’t limited. The Vickers sling is built for rough and ready conditions, just like your rifle. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best Remington 770 accessories.
Remington, also known as big Green produces some amazing rifles, and the Remington 770 is an awesome rifle at an awesome price. The Remington 770 can be drastically improved for any role with the addition of the accessories listed above. None are specific to a certain role, and can easily make your rifle a jack of all trades. Good luck!
