Remington 700 Barrel Manufacturers

These days Remington does a fine job manufacturing accurate rifles. However there may come a time when the old Remington 700 is not shooting groups as tight as it once did or maybe you just want the best accuracy that can be achieved from your rifle. A replacement barrel is a good investment. Its like getting a new and more accurate gun at half the price. All barrels for a Remington model 700 will be required to be fitted to some degree by a gunsmith. If you choose a barrel such as the Shilen it requires the least amount of work as it is pre threaded with a cut chamber. This means it only needs reamed to the final dimension. Other barrels are purchased as blanks and must be cut to length, threaded and have the chambers cut and reamed for your desired caliber. In many cases the barrel will require some sort of coloring or protective coating as many barrels are sold “in the white”. Note: There are no drop in barrels for a Remington 700. All replacement barrels must be fitted and headspaced by a qualified gunsmith Note: Replace your factory Remington 700 Trigger before you consider a new barrel.

Fulton Armory M65 Enhanced Sniper Rifle FA-M14-M65

Clint McKee and Fulton Armory know the M14 and they know it well, in fact they build some of the tightest and most accurate M14 style rifles available. When you purchase a complete Fulton Armory Rifle you are purchasing a rifle handcrafted by very skilled people. These are not mass produced firearms by any measure. FA also has outstanding service and support, they do business the old fashioned way and rely heavily on their reputation. Fulton Armory often gets a slight ding from purists who prefer forged receivers over cast receivers. I’m not sure this matters with today’s modern manufacturing methods but that’s a discussion for another page. Additionally about a decade and a half ago there were complaints about soft bolts. That has long since disappeared but internet posts don’t disappear and keep regurgitating. The M65 Enhanced Sniper Rifle is one version of Fulton Armory’s take on the M14 platform based M21 Sniper Weapon System

M21 Sniper Weapon System

The United States Army wanted an accurate sniper rifle during the Vietnam War. The M14 was selected because of its accuracy, reliability, and the ability for a quick follow up shot. As a result, in 1969, the Rock Island Arsenal converted 1,435 National Match (target grade) M14s by adding a Redfield ART Adjustable Ranging Telescope 3–9× and providing National Match grade ammunition (7.62 Lake City Long Range XM-118). This version, called the XM21, had a specially selected walnut stock and was first fielded in the second half of 1969. An improved version with a fiberglass stock was designated the M21 in 1975. The M21 remained the Army’s primary sniper rifle until 1988, when it was replaced by the M24 Sniper Weapon System; some M21s were later re-issued and used in the Iraq War.
The M21 Sniper Weapon System (SWS) is the semi-automatic sniper rifle version of the M14 rifle. It’s chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge and 7.62×54mmR for Vietnamese and Chinese modified versions, as well the rare .30-06 version.

Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad Model

I’m old enough to remember Jeff Cooper in the 1980’s and 1990’s passionately writing about the need for a “Scout Rifle” . The Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad Model Rifle is a departure from his definition in two significant ways. The Springfield Armory M1A Scout Rifle is semi-automatic, Jeff Cooper specified bolt action and the Springfield Armory M1A Scout Rifle weighs in at 8.8 pounds while Jeff Cooper specified the scout rifle weigh less than 6.5 pounds.  With that said I think in this day and age Jeff Cooper would have embraced the Springfield Armory Scout Rifle
