Remington shows off new Model 700 Chassis Pistol at SHOT (PHOTOS)

Using a short-action Remington 700 system, the CP is billed as an accurate and compact handgun for long-range shooting and hunting applications.

Announced last November, the new bolt-action pistol is offered in .300 Blackout, .223 Remington and .308 Winchester with a length under 21.75-inches overall in its largest format. Using 10.5-inch barrels in its .300 AAC and .223 chamberings, the pistol runs a 12.5-inch barrel in the .308 version.

The CP comes standard with an M-LOK handguard, threaded muzzle, and a full top Picatinny rail for optics and/or back-up irons. Using a Magpul MIAD pistol grip and Remington’s X-Mark adjustable (3.5 to 5.5-pound) trigger system, the mag well accepts 10-round Accuracy International AICS-spec magazine system detachables. Due to its size, the handgun is a Form 1 away from being a fire-breathing SBR when equipped with a stock.

There is a rear single-point quick-detach sling point, useful as the pistol weighs around 6-pounds without optics. Finish is hard coat anodized and black Cerakote while an example with a blue tactical camo pattern was on hand for the show.

MSRP on the 700 CP is $1,020. Remington has long been a leader in the rifle-caliber bolt-action handguns, dating back to the XP100 in the 1960s. Big Green had their current Custom Shop Remington 40XP pistol offerings in .300AAC on display at SHOT alongside the 700 CP in a nod to the lineage.
