Model 700 CDL DM

The Remington Model 700 Classic Deluxe DM is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in six calibers.  The Model 700 was introduced by Remington in 1962 and has since been expanded to include more than 30 sub-models. The Model 700 CDL DM has a more traditional design, so it also has a higher price tag than many of the 700 sub-models.

The Model 700 DM is very similar to the standard 700 CDL except it is equipped with a drop-magazine (hence DM).

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 CDL models include an American walnut stock with checkering and a satin finish. It is also equipped with 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.
