Remington LE is offering two patrol rifles—the 7615P in .223 Rem. and the 7600P in .308 Win.—that are operationally similar to a Model 870 shotgun, easing training transition for officers already trained on that system. The 7615P employs high-capacity QR-15/M16 magazines.
Model 870 P Max
The 870P MAX is designed to be a full-featured tactical shotgun right out of the box. It features a Speedfeed pistol-grip buttstock, a SureFire Tactical WeaponLight fore-end and a Wilson Combat ghost ring rear sight.
The M24A3 moves beyond the M24 SWS and M24A3 in both power and range with its .338 Lapua Mag. chambering. This cartridge fills a niche between the .308 Win. and the .50 BMG cartridges. It is available with a either an H&S Precision Pro-2000 stock or an optional Accuracy Int’l Chassis System stock (shown).
Built upon the capable M24 SWS, the new M24A2 features some modifications from the original. These include the Modular Accessory Rail System (MARS) for more optics-mounting flexibility, a detachable Accuracy Int’l box magazine and an optional suppressor.
The M24 SWS has been the U.S. Army’s precision rifle since the late 1980s and is the cornerstone of Remington’s sniper rifle program.
