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. For added protection against the elements, the fire control components of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Model 700 are nickel plated. The high tech synthetic stock covered in new Realtree AP HD camouflage features a unique, patented technology from Hogue that incorporates easy-gripping, overmolded rubber panels into the grip and fore-end areas for a sure grip under any conditions. This rifle has a stainless steel barrel and receiver and a 2-position safety. Its stock, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
