Madison, N.C. – In 2006, Remington introduced an extensive line of bolt action centerfire rifles based on the timehonored Model 98 Mauser action – the Model 799 Short Action Mini-Mauser and the Model 798 Long Action. This classic-styled action is known for its controlled round feed and positive fixed blade ejection; strength and reliability; fast lock time and inherent accuracy. Joining this exceptional line of rifles for 2007 is the Model 798 Stainless in seven popular chamberings: .243 Win, .25-06 Rem, .270 Win, .30-06 Sprg, 7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag, and .375 H&H. This bolt-action is the first-ever, production stainless steel Mauser offering in the long history of this classic action.
These high-performance rifles feature solidly-built receivers and hammer-forged barrels constructed of durable stainless steel with non-glare satin finish. Standard calibers feature a 22-inch clean barrel while the magnum chamberings sport 24-inch clean barrels (.375 H&H has rifle sights). The barreled action is housed in a Monte Carlo CNC-inletted and glass bedded wood laminate stock for improved accuracy. Constructed of attractive forest green, gray and brown laminates, this durable stock is enhanced with cut-checkering and provides added protection from the rigors of hardcore hunting. Receivers are drilled and tapped for standard Mauser 98 scope mounts. Additional features include one-piece solid steel trigger guard/magazine assembly with hinged floorplate and steel magazine follower; one-inch rubber butt pad; sporter-style, single stage trigger with tang mounted 2-position safety; and sling swivel studs.
At the core of the Model 798 Stainless Laminate is the rock-solid Mauser 98 action with claw extractor for true controlled round feeding. This time-tested design remains the platform of choice for many of today’s production and custom-made bolt action rifles.
Solid performance and rugged durability define the latest centerfire offering from Remington – the Model 798 Stainless. Available at suggested retail prices ranging from $710 to $1032.
