Madison, N.C. – Since the introduction of the Remington® Model 700 Special Purpose Synthetic (SPS) family of centerfire rifles in 2005, these durable, highly functional bolt actions have quickly become a favorite with hunters and shooters worldwide. New for 2007, Remington is pleased to partner with Buckmasters on the introduction of special edition Model 700 SPS Buckmasters and Model 700 SPS Buckmasters Young Bucks rifles. Setting these logo versions apart from the standard Model 700 SPS line are a specially-engraved floorplate and fully-camouflged
stock. The Buckmasters edition is available in six traditional chamberings - .243 Win, 7mm-08, .270 Win, .30-06 Sprg, 7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag and the Buckmasters Young Bucks edition in .243 Win.
The rigid design of the Model 700 receiver, machined from a solid steel bar, is the core of the Model 700 SPS. This combined with the famous “three-rings-of-steel” design which completely supports the cartridge; make the Model 700 one of the most reliable and accurate actions available. The Model 700 SPS has an ergonomically designed synthetic stock with defined grips and features the recoil-reducing R3® Recoil Pad. Unique to these special edition rifles are stocks fully camouflaged with Realtree Hardwoods® HD™ and convenient hinged floorplate magazines that are engraved with the Buckmasters logo. The clean carbon steel barrels come in 24- inch length for standard caliber offerings and in a 26-inch length for magnum calibers and feature a matte blued finish. These durable bolt action rifles are drilled and tapped for ease of scope mounting and have sling swivelstuds.
The Buckmasters Young Bucks rifle shares the same great features but is designed to fit the younger or smaller stature shooter with a one-inch shorter length of pull and more compact 20-inch barrel for proper counterbalance with the shorter and lighter stock. These special edition Youth rifles have the Realtree-camouflaged stocks and Buckmasters logo engraved on the floorplate. Available only in .243 Win.
