Video: Remington Model 783 Review

posted on June 29, 2015
In the fall of 2010, some “big dogs” within Remington’s rifle program were sitting around deer camp when they decided Remington needed a new rifle—one as accurate and dependable as a Remington Model 700 but less expensive. They left camp with a blueprint for what would become the Model 783, a model number with meaning. The “Seven” reflects the model 700’s legendary reliability and accuracy. The “Eight” was a call back to the Model 788, which was Remington’s last affordable alternative to the 700. And finally, the “Three” represents 2013; the year Remington would introduce this rifle.

To learn more about this rifle, watch this "Rifleman Review" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
