The Remington Model 700 turns 50 in 2012. John Fink tells us about a special commemorative rifle that’s a must-have for Model 700 fans.
No thank you, I'm not going to buy any Remington product until the trigger/safety mechanism issue is resolved.
You are kidding right?
Millions of these 700s have been sold, then when a couple accidents happen the liberal media dare to blame the manufacture and not the handler of the firearm. Hey Chiefbuck, people like you are why lawyers are so rich in America. Here's a tip for ya….stay out of swimming pools! There have been a few reported drownings (many more than firearm accidents) and they say the pool manufacture may have provided faulty water!!
Really enjoyed the article by J.Scott Rupp. I own a Remington M700 BDL in 30-06 that I purchased in 1966. It is one rifle among many I own but it is my favorite. It groups under 1 inch and sometimes .5 inches at 100 Yds. It is reliable, serviceable, and still beautiful and has harvested more game than all the others combined. I do however take exception to the blued bolt. Though the early bolts were not jeweled, they were bright metal and not blued. I say this not to be picky but rather to be precise in terms of duplication. I'm sure the blued bolt looks just fine.
Great looking rifle. That price tag is a bit steep for me though. I bought a 700 BDL back in 1986. I think that I paid around $400.00 bucks for it new. Man, have the cost of fine firearms went up over the years. That 700 BDL in 7mm Rem Mag is still my favorite rifle after all these years. I have never had any problems with the trigger and safety or any other problems for that matter.
I have two rifles that I shoot–a ..270 and a .264 and they are bpth perfect.They are 1 inchers at 200 hundred and I never get enoough shooing to use any shells. Great gun in the .270 and I have shot it twice in the last 56 years. I hunt in SD and never shoot more than I have licsenses. I have nothing but good things to say about the .270.
Where can I get a REMINGTON ventilated recoil pad for my 700 BDL? The 50th anniversary issue BDL is sweet but $1400 msrp? Awesome gun…
The old remmie 700s had a mind of their own, shot a lot of folks, and scared the crap out of a lot more. The new ones are OK if you do not mess with the trigger.
