REMINGTON MODEL 700 CLASSIC
Chambered in 8mm Mauser (8x57mmS), the 2004 Model 700 Classic becomes the 24th offering in this Limited Edition series. Recognized as the German military rifle cartridge during both World Wars the 8mm Mauser received little recognition with U.S. hunters, though long a favorite of European hunters and gunmakers. Following World War II, surplus 8mm military rifles in the United States increased the use and popularity of this medium to big game cartridge.
The Model 700 Classic bolt-action rifle features a traditional American walnut, straight-combed "Classic" style stock with low-gloss, satin finish, crisp-cut checkering and swivel studs. Adding to the distinguished appearance of this Model 700 is the clean 24-inch high polished, blued carbon steel barrel and long action receiver. The hinged floor plate magazine has a capacity of four plus one in the chamber. Dating back to 1981, the impressive list of one-year limited edition Model 700 Classics has included many of the truly great centerfire chamberings.
