The heart of Remington law enforcement rifles is the legendary Model 700 action. It's what makes our handbuilt Model 40-XB rifles so accurate and rock-solid dependable.
The foundation of the Model 700 action is its unique bolt design. The bolt face, barrel, and receiver surround and support the cartridge head with three overlapping rings of solid steel. The Model 700 receiver is machined from a solid block of ordnance-grade steel, then drilled and tapped for scope mounts. All of our standard Model 700 Police rifles have heavy, free-floating 26" barrels crowned at the muzzle for unparalleled accuracy and stability.
The Model 700P LTR features a fluted 20" barrel and is 1 1/2lbs. lighter than the standard 26" version. In the .223 Remington chambering, the twist has been changed from 1 in 12" to 1 in 9" in order to maximize the ballistic stability of heavier bullets. Model 700P's have a three to five-shot magazine capacity depending on the caliber and hinged floor plates.
Both the standard Model 700P and the Tactical Weapon System feature composite stocks reinforced with DuPont Kevlar and fiberglass. They'll stay dimensionally stable in any weather and under the worst tactical situations.
The stock is laid up around an aircraft-grade aluminum bedding block that runs the full length of the receiver. It has a textured, black, non-reflective finish and comes with sling swivel studs.
The TWS package includes a Leupold Vari-X III (3.5 x 10) scope with a Duplex reticle and flip-open lens covers. A Harris bi-pod, a Michaels 1" Quick-Adjust sling with swivels, a rugged Pelican hard case.
The Model 700P LTR (Light Tactical Rifle), chambered for .308 Win., features a hinged floorplate and slimmed down stock. The flutes in the 20" LTR not only assist in weight reduction and heat dissipation, but are engineered to enhance barrel rigidity for pinpoint accuracy.
