Remington Model 700 Alpha 1

Remington Model 700 Alpha 1

The Remington Model 700 Alpha 1 is a little different from everything else in the 700 line, with a host of feature Remington boasts are second to none. 

Chief among them are the Timney Elite Hunter straight trigger set at 1.3kg (3lb) and adjustable from 900g to 1.8kg (2-4lb); over-travel is also adjustable and the blade is Timney’s straight one.

The Alpha 1 is a sporter with custom features not fitted to other Model 700s

The Alpha 1 also sports an AG Composite carbon-fibre stock that’s extremely light yet ultra-rigid, and is fitted with a generous Pachmayr recoil pad.  

The rifle has a longer magazine well than other 700s so you can use cartridges loaded to a longer overall length, providing more handloaded leeway especially for shooters looking for better performance with longer, heavier projectiles.

The ejection port has been enlarged to match. 

The bolt is a thing of beauty, with a striking spiral-fluted body. The bolt handle can be easily changed for a different style. 

The bolt is released by a lever on the left side of the receiver instead of the usual button inside the trigger guard, and the bolt can be disassembled without the need for tools. 

It is finished in Cerakote, topped with a Picatinny rail and fitted with an Oberndorf-style aluminium trigger guard, as well as having all the key Model 700 design elements.

Calibres available are .223 Rem, .22-250 Rem, .243 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, .270 Win, .308 Win, .30-06, 7mm Rem Mag and 300 Win Mag, with magazine capacities of 3-5 rounds depending on calibre.

Short-action calibres come with a 22” barrel, long-actions and magnums with 24”, and weight varies from 3.3kg to 3.5kg.

Ask to see them at your local gun shop or visit the NIOA website for further details.
