Remington Model 700 VS SF II

Description

The Remington Model 700 VS SF II is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .204 Ruger, .22-250 Rem., .223 Rem., .220 Swift and .17 Rem. Fireball. The Model 700 was introduced by Remington in 1962 and has since been expanded to include more than 30 sub-models. The Model 700 VS SF II’s name stands for “Varmint Synthetic Stainless Fluted” and that’s exactly what makes it unique to the 700 family.

Remington says the Model 700’s action forms “three rings of steel,” meaning it uses a push-feed action where the bolt pushes the round towards the chamber and the extractor does not grab the rim of the cartridge until the bolt is completely forward and locked. It doesn’t affect the smoothness of the action, but does cater to one’s preference. Some prefer the push-feed action over a control-round feed action (which does the opposite). Also, according to Remington, the Model 700’s receiver was milled from a single piece of steel, so it’ll be more resistant to wear overtime than those not milled from a single piece of steel. A durable receiver is necessary especially when absorbing the force of the initial explosion that sets off heavier loads.

The Model 700 VS SF II features a stainless steel hammer-forged barrel, meaning a machine carefully pushed a mandrel through the bore to carve the rifling. It’s a method that offers increased precision and durability. The barrel has also been fluted, a feature that reduces the barrel’s weight slightly. The VS SF II also uses a synthetic stock made by HS Precision.
It has a black with green webbing color and is reinforced with heat
resistant aramid fibers. And it has a jeweled bolt. Jeweling means the bolt body is covered with tiny swirls that are supposed to help hold lubrication.

Remington recommends the Model 700 VS SF II for varmint hunting.
