Remington debuted new versions of its Model 700 VTR varmint rifle at SHOT Show this year, which features a 22-inch triangular barrel contour with an integrated muzzle brake. This new-age varminter has an X-Mark Pro externally-adjustable trigger that’s factory-set at a crisp, clean-pulling 3.5 pounds.
All new on the 700 VTR is a detachable bipod, Picatinny rail, an oversizied tactical bolt knob, and a carbon steel-flat dark earth stock with a eye-catching black overmold. This distinctive new series of VTR rifles is replacing Remington’s previous VTR lines, which included an OD-green colored stock.
The new 700 VTR rifles weigh an average of 7-5/8 pounds and measure a well-balanced 41-5/8 inches. The new series starts off with caliber offerings of .223, .22-250 Remington, .260 Remington, and .308 Winchester.
The Model 700 VTRSS is also available, which features a stainless steel barrel. The VTRSS is fitted with a black stock with a gray overmold, and it’s available in .223 and .308 Winchester.
