About Remington 700
The Remington Model 700 is a series of bolt-action rifles manufactured by Remington Arms since 1962. It is a development of the Remington 721 and 722 series of rifles, which were introduced in 1948. The M24 and M40 military sniper rifles, used by the US Army and USMC, respectively. Are both based on the Model 700 design?
The Remington 700 series rifles often come with a 3-, 4- or 5-round internal magazine. Depending on the caliber chambered, some of them have a hinged floor plate for quick unloading. And some of which are “blind” (with no floor plate). The rifle can also be ordered with a detachable box magazine. The Model 700 is available in many different stocks, barrels, and caliber configurations. With many third-party and aftermarket variants in the market built on the same action footprint. From 1978 to 1982 Remington offered the Sportsman 78 which is the same model 700 action but with cheaper features such as a plain stock without checkering. The Sportsman 78 was not included in the recall that affected the trigger group.
Firstly, Remington crafts its firearms with the highest quality materials. And the Remington Model 700 is not the outlier in that either. You will find triple-layered steel barrels in a variety of sizes. Sealed solid wood shoulder stocks, and high-impact polymer frames on the lightweight versions.
Lastly, the barrel on every Remington Model 700 is hand-forged from steel. And is made to very specific guidelines in an effort to make sure that they are precise and durable enough. To hold a steady aim for many years to come.
