Tactical Version Added to Popular Model 700™ SPS Line of Performance-Driven Centerfire Rifles

Madison, N.C. – The new Model 700 SPS (Special Purpose Synthetic) Tactical combines the features that made the Remington® Model 700 action the number one choice of police and military marksmen and the Model 700 SPS one of the most popular bolt-action rifle series in America. A well-designed overmold stock, our new X-Mark Pro™ trigger and other accuracy-enhancing features make this the perfect tactical rifle at a very affordable price. (Note: The Model 700 SPS Tactical is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers).

Available in the widely popular 223 Remington and 308 Win chamberings, the Model 700 SPS Tactical has an all-black, synthetic Hogue® Overmold stock with wider fore-end design for added stability. This soft-touch, sure-grip stock is extremely comfortable for extended, long range shooting and assures a positive grip in inclement weather. The dual point pillar bedding guarantees a solid interface between the action and stock to prevent point-of-impact shifts and combined with our new “breaks-like-glass” X-Mark Pro trigger, this tack-driver delivers pin-point accuracy.

The heavy contour, tactical-style carbon steel barrel measures 20 inches and is the perfect balance between handling in tight spots and delivering pinpoint accuracy with twist rates optimized for match grade ammunition; one in 9 inches in 223 Remington and one in 12 inches in the 308 Win offering. Following the caliber designation on the barrel is the distinctive, laser engraved “Tactical” roll mark. Convenient hinged floorplate magazine, with five-round and four-round capacities, respectively; non-reflective, black oxide external metal finish; and sling swivel studs round out this specialty bolt-action. A great value for the target shooter or hardcore hunter, the performance-driven Model 700 SPS Tactical retails for an affordable $681.
