Remington Launches Line of Tactical Rifles - Including Model 700™ Long Range tactical and Model 7615™ Pump Action Carbine

Madison, N.C. – Remington is pleased to announce the expansion of its tactical line of firearms with the introduction of two new tactical rifles for 2007 – the performance-driven Model 700 XCR™ (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) Long Range Tactical Rifle in .223 Rem, .308 Win and .300 Win Mag and the quick-handling Model 7615 Tactical Rifle chambered in .223 Rem. These rifles are based on the long-accepted Model 700 bolt-action and Model 7600™ pump action platforms, selected by the military and top law enforcements agencies for their legendary accuracy, dependability and performance.

Model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Rifle – Designed for the long-range, precision shooter and hunter, this Model 700 defines “tack driver”. At the core is the 416 stainless steel barreled action that features our exclusive TriNyte® Corrosion Control System – a multi-step, micro-thin protective layering process that makes this rifle element-resistant. This impervious barreled action is housed in a newly-designed Tactical Bell and Carlson stock featuring full length aluminum bedding block; tactical beavertail fore-end; and recessed thumb hook located behind the pistol grip for enhanced shooting performance. The composite stock reinforced with aramid fibers is finished in OD Green with a black webbed overlay. Dual front swivel studs and rear stud complete the stock package. Addition of the new Remington® X-MARK PRO™ trigger enhances accuracy with its mirror-like surfaces, no creep and 40% lower factory trigger pull weights. It is also fully adjustable by an authorized gunsmith. The clean 26-inch varmint contour barrel is free-floating and has wide tactical-style fluting with dish-style target crown and the receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. Exposed metalwork features our black TriNyte finish. Convenient hinged floorplate magazine has five round capacity in .223 Rem, four round in .308 Win and three round in .300 Win Mag. This full-featured, performance driven bolt-action defines long range shooting. Suggested retail price: $1332

Model 7615 Tactical Rifle – No stranger to tactical police units, this fast-handling carbine rifle is well-suited as a work tool on the ranch or as a recreational target gun alternative to the AR-15. Similar in design to the rugged and reliable Model 870 pump action shotgun, the Model 7615 can deliver ultra-fast follow-up shots as the shooter instantly chambers another round from the 10-round detachable magazine box. This tactical version has the durable Model 7600 black synthetic fore-end and Knoxx SpecOps NRS™ (No Recoil Suppression) stock with convenient adjustable length of pull feature for proper fit (adjusts from 11 1/4 to 15 1/2-inch LOP). Fore-end cap swivel stud and rear swivel stud are provided for attachment of sling. The compact 16 1/2-inch carbon steel barrel has standard rifle sights and more durable Parkerized finish for improved corrosion and scratch-resistance. Chambered in the widely-accepted .223 Rem, the Model 7615 will accept standard M16/AR15-style box magazines. Suggested retail price: $932

Precision tactical shooting situations require the best equipment. Remington is pleased to bring these two full-featured, high performance tactical rifles to the marketplace - the Model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Rifle in .223 Rem, .308 Win and .300 Win Mag and the Model 7615 Tactical Rifle in .223 Rem.
