Our Assessment: The Remington 700 needs no introduction, it has been one of the most popular bolt action rifles in America for decades, seeing use in target shooting, hunting, and in law enforcement. Remington had been producing sporting rifles for decades, but their Post-WWI Model 30 Sporter took too much time & money to make and required too much milling. After WWII they designed the Model 721 which used a receiver made of bar stock, meaning it could be turned on a lathe, cutting production time. The basic design of the 721 went through further developments under the direction of engineer Mike Walker, and Remington went on to produce the Model 722 and Model 725, and finally, in 1962, the Model 700 was born. With the design, Walker desired to increase accuracy over previous designs so tight bore & chamber tolerances, a short leader, and fast lock time were used. Since its inception in 1962, it has been produced in just about any caliber and configuration you could think of. If it hasn’t there are custom parts and gunsmiths out there to get it exactly how you like. This one has had the full custom treatment, it has a trued action, Pacific Tool & Gauge spiral fluted one-piece bolt with carbon fiber handle, Proof Research carbon fiber barrel, KBP Arms recoil lug, Timney 512 Trigger, and a PTG bottom metal with Wyatt internal box. This rifle has been seriously modified by a previous owner to get the most out of the 700 action and this rifle should be a joy to shoot tight groups with. It you want a custom rifle without the custom wait time this one is for you. Please see our photos and good luck!
