Cutting Edge Innovation and Match-Grade Accuracy – New Offerings of Remington Model 700™ VTR™ for 2009

January 05 2009

Madison, N.C. – The 2008 introduction of the Model 700 VTR took the shooting world by storm! Its unique design attributes and tack-driving accuracy caught the attention of the nation’s best hunters and shooters.  New for 2009, the Model 700 VTR centerfire, bolt-action rifle will be offered in two new chamberings - the blazing hot 17 Remington Fireball and the versatile 243 Win. The 17 Remington Fireball eclipses many popular varmint cartridges with its blistering 4,000 fps muzzle velocity and has quickly gained the overwhelming approval of small-caliber centerfire fans.

Also new for 2009, Remington is excited to introduce the Model 700 VTR Desert Recon featuring the popular Tiger Stripe Products® Digital Tiger™ TSP Desert camo pattern - available in 223 Remington and 308 Win.

The Model 700 VTR is a culmination of our time-tested rifle design, fused with truly innovative new features available only from Remington.  For starters, the Model 700 VTR is fitted with a unique patent-pending, triangular contoured target-grade barrel.  This is a result of rigorous research and development that is focused on reducing weight, enhancing rigidity and promoting rapid heat dissipation.  To decrease recoil and muzzle jump, this uniquely contoured 22-inch barrel has an integral muzzle brake that is machined-in during production.

For optimal accuracy, the distinctive barreled action is then fitted with the new Remington X-Mark Pro™ Adjustable trigger.  The advanced design allows for consistent 3 ½ pound trigger pulls set directly from the factory. Should you feel the need; the trigger can be externally adjusted within a range of 2 pounds (3 to 5 pounds) with the included tool.

To complete the package, the Model 700 VTR barreled action is mated to a newly designed, synthetic stock with vented beaver-tail fore end and black overmold grip areas.  This unique stock design is another exclusive feature available only on the Model 700 VTR.
