Remington R-15 VTR – Modular Repeating Rifles

Remington R-15 VTR – Modular Repeating Rifles

Madison, NC – New for 2008, Remington is excited to announce its first hunter-specific modular repeating rifle, the Model R-15 VTR. The Model R-15 VTR is available in both 223 Remington and 204 Ruger; two of today’s most popular varmint and predator chamberings.

With the hunter in mind, the new R-15 VTR modular repeating rifle was born of the most advanced design aspects of AR-15-style rifles available today. For peak accuracy, the R-15’s 0.680" OD barrel is precision crafted from Chrome-Moly steel and is free-floated within the machined-aluminum fore-end tube and given a recessed hunting crown for the ultimate in shot-to-shot consistency. Six longitudinal flutes forward of the gas block provide increased rigidity and weight reduction while promoting rapid barrel cooling.

Control comes naturally with the ergonomic pistol grip and lightweight overall design of the R-15. Its uppers and lowers are machined from aluminum forgings for featherweight durability, and the fore-end tube is drilled and tapped for accessory rails. This new family of firearms consists of three models. Each was designed with input from leading predator authorities and decked in the ultra-effective Advantage MAX-1 HD camouflage to blend with sage, open country and a multitude of hunting terrains. All come with five-round magazines and are compatible with all aftermarket AR-15 magazines and accessories.

The R-15 VTR Predator Rifle has a 22-inch barrel with a fixed stock and pistol grip. At 7¾ lbs, it’s extremely stable – the best choice for long shots. Our R-15 VTR Predator Carbine and R-15 Predator Carbine CS (Collapsible Stock) handle like lightning with their 18-inch barrels and weigh a mere 6¾ lbs. – perfect for run and gun style hunting. The Predator Carbine CS features a telescoping stock with a fully adjustable length of pull for a custom fit.

    Got mine last week, ended up paying $1,000, tag was $1,195. With a pentax red dot mounted it shoots some great 100 yard groups. I'll have to put a regular scope on to see it's real accurracy, but I suspect it's a tight shooter.
