Model 700 SPS Camo

The Remington Model 700 Special Purpose Synthetic Camo is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in multiple cartridges. The Model 700 was introduced in 1962 and since then Remington has expanded the design into over 30 sub-models including the SPS. The major difference between the SPS and the other sub-models is price. The SPS costs the least of any Model 700 because it uses a synthetic stock instead of its traditional wooden design.

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.

Features include a free-floated barrel, so when the barrel heats up and swells it won’t press against the stock and interfere with the rifle’s accuracy. The 700 SPS Camo version is finished in Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity with Hogue brand over-molded grips covering the pistol grip and fore-end. Hogue grips are made of soft rubber. The Camo is also equipped with Remington’s patented X-mark pro trigger system, which has a pull weight of 3.5 pounds with two pounds of adjustment to suit the shooter’s individual needs. And it has a carbon steel barrel. The SPS is available for left-handed shooters too.

Remington recommends the Model 700 SPS Camo for hunting varmints, small and large game, hoofed animals and leisure shooting.
