New from Remington: Model 783 Bolt Action Rifle

Well, it looks like American Rifleman got their hands on the new Remington bolt action rifle before anyone else. I’m only slightly miffed; we’re the #1 firearms-related news and reviews website on the internet after all. And AR’s rifle review left a little something something to be desired. (“The 783 is a bolt-action rifle that shoots like a model 700 and costs as much as a 700 did 20 years ago.”) But I would say that wouldn’t I? Anyway, the main takeaway: the Model 783′s a “budget” rifle. Clocking-in at around $451 MSRP Remington designed the bolt action rifle to “fill the gap between the Remington Model 770 and Model 700 SPS.” That’s code for putting it in direct competition with Ruger’s American Rifle and the like.
