Have you thought about a Model 740/742? And a Browning BAR can be chambered in .308. Not perfect alternatives, but those are the closest that I've seen available.
5231HG,

BEFORE you invest money in either a BAR or Remington semi-auto rifle for self-defense OR for hunting anything that seems likely to gore, trample, claw or EAT you, think twice or 3 times.

IF I soon do NOT find a Model 7600P, I plan to find & buy a "Plain Jane" & "early production" Model 760 in .308WCF (with the "corncob" fore-end, which will not be difficult) & cut the barrel down to just over 16 inches for hunting heavy and/or dangerous game "in the thick stuff".
(Fwiw, I have "no shortage of" Model 760 rifles in a variety of calibers BUT currently none that I want to "cut down" into a carbine/saddle gun.)

yours, satx

None, never seen the need.

I would guess that NEITHER of you gents are "wrong-handed guys" , otherwise I think it LIKELY that you would own at least ONE pump-rifle/carbine.

Well over 90% of the "pump-rifle addicts" that I know personally are LEFT-HANDED.

I found this 7400:

I hope it's what you were looking for.

5231HG,

Unfortunately it is NOT, though I would HAPPILY pay 450.oo for the 7600P.
(The little 7.62x51mm carbine cost 525.oo when NIB & considerably less when sold on police contracts.)
They are NOT "collector's items".

ADDENDA: I have "missed out" on two 7600P that sold on GUNBROKER.COM in the last 6-8 months, for reasonable prices & SEVERAL that sold for "scalper's prices".

I'm told that one in "slightly used" but perfectly adequate for a "shooting carbine" sold for 405.oo plus S&H.

yours, satx
