Remington Model 700 XCR – Now Available in Left Hand Version

Remington Model 700 XCR – Now Available in Left Hand Version

Madison, NC – For 2008, Remington is pleased to announce a left-handed version of our most durable rifle – the Model 700 XCR LH (Left Hand) in two versatile long-action chamberings and two hard-hitting, long range magnum offerings – 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 7mm Remington Mag and 300 Remington Ultra Mag.

The Model 700 XCR is truly built for extreme conditions with our patented TriNyte Corrosion Control System. This proprietary process starts with a 416 stainless steel barreled action that is plated with electroless nickel, followed by a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating. Though micro-thin, this protective barrier provides superior abrasion resistance and virtual elimination of corrosion. Next the barreled action is fit into an element-defying, black synthetic stock with solid-grip, gray overmolded panels on the fore-end and pistol-grip. Other standard XCR features include clean 24-inch, hammer-forged barrel (26-inch barrel length on magnums); receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts; hinged floorplate with four-round magazine capacity in the 270 Win and 30-06 Sprg offerings and three-round magazine capacity in the magnums; and sling swivel studs. And on this version, the two-position safety is located on the left side of the receiver.

Accuracy is second nature to this durable centerfire rifle as the XCR rifle features the time-proven Model 700 bolt-action platform at its core. With its unique cylindrical receiver design delivering consistent shot placement; legendary “three-rings-of-steel” lock-up providing unparalleled strength; and solid construction from a single steel bar stock – the Model 700 XCR delivers peak performance, shot after shot. Accuracy is further enhanced with the addition of our ultra-crisp X-Mark Pro trigger and new patented SuperCell Recoil Pad. The trigger with its mirror-like surfaces and adjustable pull weight (by qualified gunsmith) delivers a clean, crisp break with virtually no creep. Recoil force is absorbed over a longer period of time by the millions of advanced polymer SuperCells; less felt recoil equals greater accuracy. All of these features are standard equipment on the Model 700 XCR LH rifle.

Being left-handed is no longer a “handicap” when you are looking for a superior-performing, weather-defying bolt-action rifle. Look no further – the Model 700 XCR LH has arrived!
