With more and more hunters using suppressors, a suppressor-ready bolt action rifle in the “I don’t care if I hurt it” price range makes a lot of sense. The newest version of the budget friendly Remington Model 783 features a threaded, free float heavy barrel. The four available chamberings — .223, .308, 300 BLK and 6.5 Creedmoor — all come with a 16.5″ carbon steel barrel with button rifling. The Model 783 Heavy Barrel includes . . .
a picatinny rail, SuperCell® Recoil Pad and the new CrossFire™ trigger system that’s user adjustable. It also has a detachable steel magazine (not glock mags) with steel latch.
With an MSRP of only $459 the threaded Remignton Model 738 might be a good drag-through-the-brush rifle. I hope you like the Flat Dark Earth synthetic stock ’cause that’s all it comes in.
