Video—I Have This Old Gun: Remington Model 720 Rifle

Right before World War II, Remington upgraded its civilian bolt-action rifle from the Model 30 to the Model 720. The rifle hit the market shortly before Dec. 7, 1941, the timing of which caused production to cease. Only 2,500 of these models were produced, and the majority of them ended up in storage. Later they were ordered destroyed, but before that ever came to pass, the Navy bought the rifles and awarded them as trophies in Navy and Marine Corps shooting matches. For more on the Remington Model 720 Rifle, watch this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
