A lot of hunters and shooters have become very budget-conscious in the last few years, and the industry has taken notice. Wallet-friendly products have become something of the norm, and many gun owners haven’t hesitated to trade in some of their favorite bells and whistles in favor of a lower price point. But that doesn’t necessarily have to mean lower quality. After all, Ruger’s American Rifle, an affordably priced bolt-action, did just finish collecting its Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
For 2013, Remington decided it was time to make a statement in the bargain-bolt-action market, and has done so with the new Model 783.
To learn more about the new 783, check out the video below, hosted by Associate Online Editor Shawn Skipper
