Remington® Model 715™ Sportsman® – Affordable Accuracy Right Out-of-the-Box

February 02, 2008

Madison, N.C. – For the last 192 years, Remington has provided hunters and shooters worldwide with affordable, high-quality guns. That tradition continues with the new Model 715 Sportsman bolt-action rifle. These durable centerfire rifles, available in six popular calibers and in a 243 Win Youth version, offer great features and out-of-the-box accuracy at a price that fits almost any budget. (Note: The Model 715 Sportsman is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers. For a listing of dealers in your area).

The rifle starts with an action based on the proven Model 710™, and is built to Remington’s rigorous accuracy and reliability standards using innovative engineering and space-age materials to keep costs low. With three locking lugs and the famous “three rings of steel” design, based on the Model 700™, the Model 715 Sportsman all-steel receiver is designed to handle big magnum calibers while feeding, extracting and ejecting cartridges efficiently with its easy-camming, 60 degree bolt throw.

A rifle’s barrel is at the heart of accuracy, and the Remington Model 715 is built around a six-groove, button-rifled barrel that delivers outstanding accuracy, shot after shot. Barrel construction starts with ordnance-grade steel blank and is expertly crafted while undergoing numerous quality-control checks. Standard short and long action offerings feature a 22-inch barrel length, magnum versions have a 24-inch barrel and the Youth version has a 20-inch barrel. All feature matte black finish on both receiver and barrel. The action is fed by a detachable box magazine with updated magazine latch that holds four standard cartridges or three magnum cartridges. A convenient, one-piece Weaver-style base is factory installed for ease of scope mounting. Completing this well-equipped rifle is an ergonomically-contoured, black synthetic stock with raised cheek piece and integral sling swivel studs.

The Youth version with shorter 12 1/8-inch length of pull provides smaller stature or young shooters a well balanced, easy-handling alternative to full-size, standard LOP rifles. Chambered in the lower-recoiling, yet versatile 243 Win, this centerfire provides deer-sized game performance in a smaller, more compact platform.

The Model 715 Sportsman, available in 243 Win, 7mm-08 Remington, 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 7mm Remington Mag, 300 Win Mag and in a Youth version chambered in 243 Win retails for just $349 - giving hunters and shooters unparalleled performance at an affordable price!
