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. The Model 700 VLS (Varmint Laminated Stock) delivers tack-driving, varmint rifle accuracy with a handsome, resin-impregnated, laminated stock. The included Monte Carlo cheekpiece, and a wide, flat, beavertail shaped fore-end for enhanced stability. The rigid Model 700 action is mated with a vibration-dampening 26-inch heavy varmint barrel. This rifle features a 26-inch heavy barrel and a 2-position safety. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
