You may have noticed many of the new rifles available in the exotic 300AAC Blackout caliber, a mid-power round offered in a number of semi-automatic AR-15's. Now, Remington is offering this caliber, too, but in a bolt-action, the Model 700TM SPS Tactical 300 Blackout.
The new rifle is built around Remington's time-tested Model 700 action. Unique to this precision rifle is the 16 ½ -inch, heavy-contour barrel threaded to accept AAC and all 5/8 x 24 threaded flash hiders, muzzle breaks and suppressors. Shipped with a thread protector installed. The tactical-style shorter barrel is built for shooting in tight spots while delivering pinpoint accuracy.
The barreled action is bedded in a Hogue OverMolded synthetic stock with a semi-beavertail fore-end for added stability. The soft-touch stock is extremely comfortable, and made to assure a positive grip in both stressful situations and inclement weather.
The rifle also has Remington's X-Mark Pro externally adjustable trigger, set at 3 ½ pounds from the factory. The receiver is drilled and tapped for optics. It comes with a hinged floorplate magazine with 4-round capacity. Sling swivel studs round out the package.
