Remington Model 700 Tactical Chassis - Trade Shows 2014 - IWA 2014 - all4shooters.com
With modularity and modernity concepts being more and more sought after by long-range target sports shooters and by tactical military and police operators (snipers/marksmen) alike, new for 2014 the Remington Arms Company announces a major overhaul to its classic Model 700 bolt-action rifle; first showcased in January at the SHOT Show, the new Remington Model 700 “Tactical Chassis” system is now being introduced at the IWA & OutdoorClassics expo in Nuremberg, for the European markets.
Remington’s new rifle features the Model 700’s classic stainless steel barreled action, with a black Cerakote finish, and either a 24” or 26” free-floating barrel, all inside an MDT TAC-21 tactical modular chassis – which is fully machined out of lightweight aluminium, anodized to MIL-SPEC Type III standards and featuring a top full-lenght MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” rail for quicker and easier optics mount, plus further rail slots on the handguard for tactical accessories, bipods, and others.
Polymer furniture is minimal, and is provided by MagPul: the Remington 700 Tactical Chassis rifle features a MOE pistol grip and a fully adjustable PRS stock.
The Remington 700 Tactical Chassis barrel also comes equipped with a ratchet-mount AAC 51T muzzle brake – conceived and manufactured by the Advanced Armament Corp., a Freedom Group company just like Remington – and sports a varmint profile.
The 24-inch barrel versions of the Remington Model 700 Tactical Chassis system will come in both .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm) and .300 Winchester Magnum calibers; the 26-inch barrel variant will only be available in .338 Lapua Magnum. All versions feed through detachable, single-stack metal magazines, whose capacity varies according to the given caliber. Each Remington 700 Tactical Chassis rifle is equipped with two magazines, and ships in a hard case.
Further features include a Target-Tactical bolt handle for quicker and easier chambering, and a two-position safety switch located right behind it. Plus, every Model 700 Tactical Chassis rifle comes equipped with Remington’s own patented X-Mark Pro externally-adjustable trigger, factory-set to a crisp 3.5 pounds (1,5Kg.) release.
