Model 700™ Target Tactical Rifle Joins Remington® Line of Precision Long Range Rifle

January 05 2009

Madison, N.C. – Remington has expanded its tactical line of performance-driven Model 700 bolt-action rifles with the introduction of the tack-driving Model 700 Target Tactical rifle in 308 Win.  Designed for precision, long-range shooting, the Model 700 Target Tactical with its unique triangular barrel profile and 5-R tactical rifling is the culmination of our time-tested rifle design fused with truly innovative new features - available only from Remington.

Performance begins at the core of this tactical rifle with the ultra-dependable, legendary Model 700 bolt action platform. 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 and unmatched accuracy from an out-of-the-box rifle. 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; and is surrounded by the receiver) provides ultra-reliable performance

Further enhancing the accuracy of this precision Model 700 is the new 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. Tactical-style bolt knob provides for more positive control of the bolt when cycling rounds. The 26-inch carbon steel barrel features our 5-R hammer-forged, tactical target rifling which is based on our famous M-24 military rifles.  For weight reduction, enhanced rigidity and more rapid heat dissipation, the Model 700 Target Tactical features our unique, patent-pending triangular barrel profile with ¼-inch counterbore.

This durable action is then housed in a Bell and Carlson Medalist Varmint/Tactical composite stock with OD Green/black webbed finish. Features of this well-designed stock include an adjustable cheek piece for proper eye alignment with optics; adjustable butt plate assembly for length of pull, cant and height; and the fore-end is tapered for minute elevation adjustments when shooting from a rest.  All-steel constructed trigger guard and hinged floorplate with four-round capacity add to this rifle’s durability and functionality. Completing the tactical stock design are dual front and single rear swivel stud for attachment of sling and bipod. 

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