The Remington Model 700 (Remington 700) is a bolt-action rifle. It is the basis for the M24 and M40 series of rifles currently in use in the U.S. military as sniper rifles.
Design details Edit
All variations of the Remington 700 are based on the same rounded,
centerfire bolt action. The rifles are  magazine-fed; the magazine is internal and non-detachable.
Remington 700 rifles have two actions: short action, designed for shorter cartridges such as
.308 Winchester, .223 Remington, .243 Winchester; and long action, designed for longer cartridges such as .270 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .338 Lapua Magnum. Long action Remington 700 rifles can also accommodate the shorter cartridges.
The length of the action on a Remington 700 rifle can be determined by the distance between the receiver screws; short actions measure 6.5 inches between the screws, and long actions measure 7.35 inches.
The Remington 700 has many variants, ranging from countless calibers to military and police variants.
