Built on the proven Remington® Model 700™, the VTR™ Bolt-Action Rifle has all the features you need for hardcore varmint and predator hunting as well as tactical shooting. At the heart of the VTR (Varmint Tactical Rifle) is the famous Model 700 action that has been proven for accuracy and reliability in combat with the U.S. Army’s M24 sniper rifle. The VRT utilizes a unique triangular contour barrel for increased structural rigidity with less weight over a conventional heavy contour barrel, and increased heat dissipation. The barrel has an integral muzzle brake, with three vents perpendicular to the bore axis. The muzzle brake is counter-bored from the muzzle end and features a recessed, internal crown. The FDE synthetic stock features black overmold gripping areas, and a beavertail fore-end with three horizontal cooling vents. Dual sling swivel studs on the fore-end allows user to attach a bipod and sling at the same time, and this model comes with a factory installed collapsible bipod. An externally adjustable X-Mark Pro® trigger allows shooters to find the desired pull according to their preference. The 2-position safety allows the weapon to be loaded and unloaded with the safety engaged. The Remington Model 700 VTR Bolt-Action Rifle comes optics-ready with a full-length Picatinny receiver rail.
