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.
