The manufacturing of Remington-branded firearms is slowly re-emerging from its previous parent company’s bankruptcy. Newly re-organized in 2020 under the RemArms brand, production of classic Remington models, like the Model 700 bolt action and 870 shotgun, were the first to be re-introduced. For 2023, RemArms is bringing back Remington’s workhorse budget hunting rifle, the 783.

The Remington Model 783 was originally introduced in 2013 as part of a wave of budget bolt-action rifles that used modern precision manufacturing techniques to produce high-quality and accurate rifles at an affordable price.

The newly re-introduced 783 is offered in three basic configurations. All three use Remington’s user-adjustable bladed CrossFire trigger system, a Supercell recoil pad and built-in quick detachable sling swivels. The synthetic stocks are pillar-bedded and free-float the barrel. They use a detachable steel magazine that holds four rounds of standard-size cartridges or three magnum-size rounds. All models are finished in a matte black oxide.

The Synthetic model (MSRP $540) uses a black synthetic stock. It is available in a compact version with a 20” barrel and a 12 3/8” length of pull, or a standard version with a length of pull of 13 3/8” and a 22” barrel for standard cartridges and 24” barrel for magnum cartridges.

The Synthetic Camo model (MSRP $610) uses a Kryptek Obskura Transitional camouflage stock. It is only available in the full-size model in standard and magnum cartridges.

Both of these models use two-piece Remington Model 700 scope bases (bases are supplied with the Synthetic Camo model) and are available chambered in .243 Win., 6.5 mm Creedmoor, 7 mm-08 Rem. (Compact model only), .308 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 Sprg., 7 mm Rem. Mag. and .300 Win. Mag. 

The Heavy Barrel Threaded model (MSRP $600) is available in .308 Win. with a 16 1/2” barrel and .308 Win. or 6.5 mm Creedmoor with 24” barrels. This model uses a Flat Dark Earth stock, has an oversized bolt handle, and a heavy target barrel with its muzzle threaded 5/8 x 24 TPI. It is supplied with a one-piece optics rail.

Collectors refer to these shortened carbines as “trappers,” but that term was never officially used by either Winchester or Marlin. Winchester referred to them as “Baby Carbines” or “Special Short Carbines” on the rare occasions when they were cataloged.

The Rifleman Report: From The ''Inside Out''
