NRA Gun of the Week: Remington Model 700 Precision Chassis Rifle (PCR)

posted on February 9, 2019
Remington Arms Co.'s storied history as America’s oldest arms maker is familiar to most, but many may have missed its debut in the chassis-rifle market. American Rifleman’s David Herman reviews Big Green’s Model 700 Precision Chassis Rifle (PCR), a line extension of the company's classic design that has provided table fare over generations, as well as rested in the hands of those who serve and protect. The PCR is a feature-rich bolt-action rifle that utilizes a rigid aluminum chassis optioned to fit Magpul furniture. Combined with SquareDrop cuts on the handguard, the bolt-action rifle is capable of accommodating most any accessory a shooter requires.
