The Model 700 Varmint-Tactical Rifle is a revolutionary system optimized for extended range precision and mobility. Its triangular barrel contour is a product of years of rigorous research and development focused on reducing weight, enhancing rigidity and promoting rapid heat dissipation. To decrease recoil and muzzle jump, this uniquely contoured 22" barrel has an integral muzzle brake that's machined in during production. The VTR is compact and swift-handling thanks to its sleek lines and short action. The legendary "three-rings-of-steel" and the many other superior design elements of this rifle deliver the highest degree of out-of-the-box accuracy available today. The X-Mark Pro adjustable trigger system provides the ultimate in crispness and shot control. For improved consistency, the green synthetic stock has a vented beavertail forend that promotes rapid cooling. Its overmold accents provide a firm gripping surface and the dual sling swivel studs permit convenient attachment of a bipod and a sling.
