The Remington Model 700 BDL is an offspring of the Remington Model 700 series, which is the all-time best selling line of bolt action sporting rifles in the world. The Model 700s were an immediate hit when first introduced in 1962 and have ceased to slow down in popularity or utilization. Since the establishment of the Model 700 family, Remington has released a myriad of customizations, upgrades and expansions to the platform. As evidence to the versatility of this rifle’s platform, the Model 700 family has been available in varying barrel lengths, assembly materials and over 20 calibers. Such adaptability provides each; the public, law enforcement agencies and the armed forces, the ability to tailor the rifle to meet their desired needs and functions.
Modifications of this rifle serve both the US Army and Marines as sniper systems.
