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 cutting edge in rifle design, the XCR (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) uses Remington's proprietary TriNyte Corrosion Control System, making it virtually impervious to even the most extreme conditions. This rifle has a 2-position safety with a bolt-release feature and a set of Weaver-style scope-mounting bases. Its synthetic stock, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
