October 17, 2006

Madison, N.C. – At 4000fps, the exciting new .17 Remington Fireball breaks the barrier for small caliber performance. Only Remington can match this extremely fast, highly accurate and flat-shooting caliber with the legendary “out-of-the-box” performance of the Model 700™ and Model Seven™. For 2007, Remington is pleased to announce five bolt-action offerings chambered for the latest member of the .17 caliber family - the highly collectible Model 700 CDL™ SF LTD Edition (Classic Deluxe Stainless Fluted); two specially-designed varmint rifles, the Model 700 VSF™ (Varmint Synthetic Fluted) and the new Model 700 SPS™ Varmint (Special Purpose Synthetic); the durable workhorse Model 700 SPS; and the compact Model Seven CDL. All five rifles are based on the Model 700 platform, one of the strongest and most accurate actions available, and feature the new Remington X-MARK PRO™ trigger, further enhancing their tack-driving capabilities.

Model 700 CDL SF LTD Edition – Engraving on the hinged floorplate denoting the introduction of the .17 Remington Fireball cartridge, “Model 700 Limited” rollmark on the receiver and limited production quantities set this commemorative rifle apart. The CDL features a satin finished, straight comb American walnut stock with right-handed cheekpiece, generous cut checkering, black fore-end tip and grip cap. The durable 416 stainless fluted barreled action, clean 24-inch hammer-forged barrel and jeweled bolt – all feature a satin stainless finish. Other features include receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts; four round magazine capacity; R3® Recoil Pad; and sling swivel studs. This second offering in the collectible Model 700 CDL SF LTD Edition series is available for one year only. Suggested retail price: $1065

Precision composite stock with a contoured beavertail fore-end, defined ambidextrous finger grooves, palm swell and twin front tactical-style swivel studs to accommodate a sling and bipod. The desert tan stock has a textured, black webbed finish. The 26-inch hammer-forged, carbon steel barrel with satin blued finish features concave target-style crown and six longitudinal flutes for rigidity and increased heat dissipation as well as weight reduction. Receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounts and the hinged floorplate magazine has a four round capacity. With its full length aluminum bedding, the VSF is designed for the precision shooter or long-range varminter. Suggested retail price: $1159

Model 700 SPS Varmint – An exciting new line of bolt-action rifles for 2007, available in .17 Remington  Fireball and five additional chamberings.

At the core of the Model 700 SPS Varmint rifle is the rigid design of the Model 700 receiver, machined from solid steel bar stock.
