The Remington 783 is a budget-conscious bolt-action rifle that shoots m.o.a. groups at a price that brings back memories of the 700 from 20 years ago.
Remington New Rifle
Remington's new Model 783 bolt-action rifle is affordable and accurate. It also costs about the same as a Remington model 700 did 20 years ago.
A consumer adjustable trigger and a two-position safety are standard features on the new Remington model 783.
Remington's newest bolt-action, the model 783, has clean, trim lines and a suggested retail price of $451.
Trigger & Bolt Knob
The large trigger guard on Remington's new model 783 bolt-action rifle is molded into the synthetic stock. Also, the bolt knob on the Remington model 783 is the same size as the bolt knob on the Remington Model 700. However, on the model 783 the knob is flat.
The Remington "R"
The grip cap on the Remington model 783 has a molded-in Remington "R."
A flush fit, detachable box magazine is standard on all Remington model 783 rifles. The magazine release is recessed into the stock, just forward of the magazine. The magazine for the Remington model 783 is easy to load and holds four cartridges.
The Remington 783’s first field test involved shooting at steel targets from 100 to 500 yards. It performed admirably from the bench and from field shooting positions.
During the 783's first field test four different rifles were tested. Each rifle delivered 100-yard groups right at the 1 m.o.a. mark, and there were no malfunctions of any kind.
This five-shot group is indicative of the precision that all four of the field tested model 783s demonstrated. (Note: The single shot out of the black was the first shot fired.)
