Remington Unveils the 2007 Conservation Gun of the Year in Partnership with the Ruffed Grouse Society - the Premier® Over & Under RGS

Madison, N.C. – The recently-launched Premier Over & Under family of target and field shotguns from Remington combine dependability and reliability with fine Italian craftsmanship, balance and smooth handling in classically-styled STS® Competition, Upland and Field versions. New for 2007 is the inauguralConservation Gun of the Year - the Premier Field Over & Under RGS (Ruffed Grouse Society) in 20-gauge. This limited-production, collectible offering will be available for one year only. Remington will donate a portion from each sale of this special edition shotgun to RGS in support of their long-standing efforts to restore and maintain habitat for ruffed grouse, American woodcock, songbirds and other forest wildlife.

This solidly-built, 3-inch chambered 20-gauge features a low-profile, machined steel receiver; single-selective trigger; polished blued barrels; premium walnut English straight-grip stock and hunting-style Schnabeled fore-end featuring detailed cut checkering and satin oil finish; and 26-inch barrel with 7mm rib, ivory front and steel mid beads and solid barrel filets. This field-ready gun comes equipped with five flush ProBore™ choke tubes (Skeet, Improved Cylinder, Light Modified, Modified and Full). FAA-approved, lockable hard case is included. Adding to the collectibility of this attractive field gun is the distinctive black finished receiver, emblazed on each side of the receiver with the RGS logo and Remington script “R” logo on the frame bottom, both in eye-catching gold.

Speaking on behalf of the Ruffed Grouse Society, Executive Director Mike Zagata stated, “We are pleased that Remington has recognized RGS with their first Conservation Gun of the Year. Partnerships with Corporate Sponsors, like Remington, enable us to supplement our existing educational programs and restore or create additional habitat for grouse, woodcock and other early-forest wildlife.”
