Model 700 Mountain LSS

The Remington Model 700 Mountain LSS is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .270 Win., 7mm-08 Rem., .30-06 Springfield, and .280 Rem. The Model 700 was introduced by Remington in 1962 and has since been expanded to include more than 30 sub-models. What makes the Model 700 LSS unique to the family is that it has a laminate stock, which reduces its weight by about a pound compared to other 700s, and a stainless steel barrel.

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 Mountain LSS features a two-tone laminated wood stock and fore-end. It is also equipped with a hinged floorplate magazine and swivel sling studs.

Because of its lightweight design, Remington recommends the Mountain LSS for hunting in areas with challenging contour.
