In the fall of 2010, some “big dogs” within Remington’s rifle program were sitting around deer camp when they decided Remington needed a new rifle—one as accurate and dependable as a Remington Model 700 but less expensive. They left camp with a blueprint for what would become the Model 783, a model number with meaning. The “Seven” reflects the model 700’s legendary reliability and accuracy. The “Eight” was a call back to the Model 788, which was Remington’s last affordable alternative to the 700. And finally, the “Three” represents 2013; the year Remington would introduce this rifle.
