Remington Model 700 XCR II Bone Collector Edition

Description

The Remington Model 700 Extreme Condition Rifle II Bone Collector Edition is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .30-06 Springfield. The Model 700 was introduced by Remington in 1962 and has since been expanded to include more than 30 sub-models. The XCR II Bone Collector Edition has identical features to the  Model 700 XCR II, but is aesthetically different. Its stock is finished in Realtree AP HD camouflage and features Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector logo (Michael Waddell is a hunter and host of the TV show Bone Collector). Also, its metal parts are finished with a black TriNyte coating.

TriNyte is a Remington patented corrosion resistant, electroless nickel coating. In a nutshell, electroless nickel plating deposits a nickel finish on the metal’s surface without using an electric current. This procedure deposits the finish evenly as opposed to an electroplating nickel finish. This process produces a very durable finish, however, compared to the latter process, it said not to have as long of a lifespan. TriNyte is typically applied to weapons designed for wet conditions like the Marine Magnum.

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.

All Model 700 XCR models include Remington’s patented X-Mark Pro adjustable trigger system, which has a pull weight of 3.5 pounds with two pounds of adjustment to suit the shooter’s individual needs. What’s unique about the X-Mark Pro trigger system is that it can be adjusted externally.  Also, the XCR has Hogue patented rubber overmolding on the grip and fore-end of the stock. The soft rubber grips are intended to provide comfort and help the shooter maintain positive control when absorbing harsh recoil.
