Compact Model 700™ XCR Rifle Joins Remington® Line of Precision Bolt-Action Tactical Rifles

Madison, N.C. – Remington has expanded its tactical line of Model 700 XCR (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) precision rifles with the introduction of a versatile, quick-handling platform – the Model 700 XCR Compact Tactical. For 2008, these high performance bolt-actions are chambered in two of the most popular, tack-driving cartridges – 223 Remington and 308 Win. Designed for tactical precision shooting, this more compact version adds the ease of mobility while still delivering the legendary accuracy and reliability that the Model 700 reputation has built upon since its introduction in 1962.

Performance begins at the core of the Model 700 XCR Compact Tactical with the ultra-dependable Model 700 action. The rigid cylindrical-designed receiver is milled from a solid bar of steel, providing uniformity and strength and with its solid bedding area, consistency from shot to shot. The renowned Remington “three-rings-of-steel” design (counterbored bolt face encloses the cartridge head with an unbroken ring of steel, which then fits inside of the barrel chamber, surrounded by the receiver) provides for the most reliable performance from any production gun.

This compact bolt-action rifle features a 416 stainless steel barreled action with our exclusive TriNyte® Corrosion Control System. This patented multi-step, micro-thin protective layering process makes this rifle element and abrasion-resistant while providing a non-reflective matte black finish. This durable action is then housed in a Tactical-style Bell and Carlson stock featuring full length aluminum bedding block and beavertail fore-end. The composite stock is reinforced with aramid fibers and finished in an OD Green color with a black webbed overlay. Dual front swivel studs and rear stud allow for attachment of sling and bipod.

Our line of XCR Tactical rifles are equipped with our Model 40-X™ Custom Shop trigger, which is externally adjustable for trigger pull weight (11/2 to 31/2-pounds) and delivers a clean, crisp break with no creep. The clean 20-inch varmint-contour, free-floated barrel features tactical-style fluting for reduced weight and enhanced cooling and has a dish-style target crown to protect rifling. The convenient hinged floorplate has a five-round capacity in the 223 Remington chambering and four-round capacity in 308 Win. The receiver is drilled and tapped for the addition of optics.

Precision tactical shooting situations require the best equipment and whether you are heading afield or to the range, the performance-enhanced Model 700 XCR Compact Tactical in 223 Remington or 308 Win lives up to the task at hand.
