No production hunting rifle beats the Model 700's out-of-the-box accuracy and trophy-claiming dependability. The 700 features a receiver machined from solid-steel bar stock resulting in uniformity and strength and a recessed bolt face that locks up inside the counter-bored breech of the barrel, which is surrounded by the receiver, forming "three-rings-of-steel" that enclose the cartridge case head for unparalleled strength. Its high-gloss American walnut stock is enhanced by a distinctive black fore-end cap, Monte Carlo comb with raised cheekpiece, and generous skipline cut checkering. The Model 700 BDL has a hinged magazine floorplate and sling swivel studs. This rifle features a beaded barrel and a standard safety and has been drilled and tapped for scope mounts. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
