A Legend Celebrates 50th Anniversary
January 01, 2012
Madison, NC – In 1962, Remington Arms Company, LLC., (“Remington”) introduced a bolt-action rifle that had an immediate and major impact on the shooting world. Advertised as, “the world’s strongest bolt-action,” the Model 700 ultimately earned its reputation for delivering out-of-the-box accuracy and rock-solid dependability.
With more than 5 million units sold, the Model 700 family of rifles is the most diverse centerfire rifle line available today. There are stainless, rich-blued and matte-finished versions to choose from with a variety of stock options that includes camo, synthetic, walnut and laminate - all offered in a range of calibers unrivaled in the industry.
But there’s only one Model 700 BDL 50th Anniversary rifle, and Remington is proud to announce this limited-edition rifle designed specifically to celebrate a milestone in the history of the legendary Model 700.
The 50th Anniversary rifle design is based on the original 1962 Model 700 BDL, a designation that was originally an acronym for B-Deluxe Grade. The classic look continues with a satin-finished “B” grade American walnut stock with right-handed cheek piece. Enhancing the classic look of the stock are cut fleur-de-lis-style checkering and period-style, white-line spacers on the black fore-end and pistol-grip caps, as well as a black-vented recoil pad.
The durable 24-inch carbon steel, magnum-contoured, rifle-sighted barrel features satin-blued finish for a striking appearance. Other standard features include a drilled and tapped receiver for scope mounting; four-round magazine capacity; sling swivel studs; and our patented, accuracy-enhancing, X-Mark Pro® adjustable trigger set at 3 ½ pounds. Further identifying the limited edition Model 700 BDL 50th Anniversary rifle for collectors and enthusiasts is a commemorative logo laser-engraved on the magazine floor plate.
The Model 700 50th Anniversary rifle is chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. The cartridge was introduced in 1962 along with the Model 700. Since 1962, hunters have admired the 7mm Remington Magnum as an excellent long-range, flat-shooting, big-game cartridge. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the pairing of rifle and caliber.
The Model 700 BDL 50th Anniversary rifle is available at a suggested retail price of $1399.
