Madison, N.C. – The Model 700 XCR (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) bolt-action rifle, introduced in 2005, soon became known for its superior performance and durability, even in the harshest weather and most extreme hunting conditions. Based on the legendary Model 700 action, the XCR platform incorporates performance-enhancing features and the latest in technologically-advanced, manufacturing processes. The result is a rifle truly built for superior performance. For 2008, Remington is pleased to announce a left-handed version of our most durable rifle – the Model 700 XCR LH (Left Hand) in two versatile long-action chamberings and two hard-hitting, long range magnum offerings – 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 7mm Remington Mag and 300 Remington Ultra Mag.
The Model 700 XCR is truly built for extreme conditions with our patented TriNyte® Corrosion Control System. This proprietary process starts with a 416 stainless steel barreled action that is plated with electroless nickel, followed by a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating. Though micro-thin, this protective barrier provides superior abrasion resistance and virtual elimination of corrosion. Next the barreled action is fit into an element-defying, black synthetic stock with solid-grip, gray overmolded panels on the fore-end and pistol-grip. Other standard XCR features include clean 24-inch, hammer-forged barrel (26-inch barrel length on magnums); receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts; hinged floorplate with four-round magazine capacity in the 270 Win and 30-06 Sprg offerings and three-round magazine capacity in the magnums; and sling swivel studs. And on this version, the two-position safety is located on the left side of the receiver.
Accuracy is second nature to this durable centerfire rifle as the XCR rifle features the time-proven Model 700 bolt-action platform at its core. With its unique cylindrical receiver design delivering consistent shot placement; legendary “three-rings-of-steel” lock-up providing unparalleled strength; and solid construction from a single steel bar stock – the Model 700 XCR delivers peak performance, shot after shot. Accuracy is further enhanced with the addition of our ultra-crisp X-Mark Pro™ trigger and new patented SuperCell™ Recoil Pad. The trigger with its mirror-like surfaces and adjustable pull weight (by qualified gunsmith) delivers a clean, crisp break with virtually no creep. Recoil force is absorbed over a longer period of time by the millions of advanced polymer SuperCells; less felt recoil equals greater accuracy. All of these features are standard equipment on the Model 700 XCR LH rifle.
Being left-handed is no longer a “handicap” when you are looking for a superior-performing, weather-defying bolt-action rifle. Look no further – the Model 700 XCR LH has arrived!
