Few firearms have the rich history of Remington's Model 700, now in its 50th year of production. A staple of the bolt-action community, the 700 is one of the most respected rifles in the world, and rightfully so. Pictured here is the Model 700 SPS.
The Model 700 represents one of the most diverse rifles available—there's something available for every hunter and shooter. Remington lists more than 35 models on its website, and each is available a wide array of calibers.
With distinct ties to American history and an established reliability, the Model 700 belongs in the safe of any hunter or gun owner, and it's more than worthy of being recognized as an AmericanRifleman.org Gun of the Week.
