  • Remington 700 Actions, Made In America???

    G'Day Fella's,

    It wouldn't be the first time I've been accused of having an eye for detail!
    So I was looking thru the current #66 Brownells catalog a few weeks back (yes OK, I know I'm a bit slow) when I see they are selling New Remington 700 actions (page 155), in various action lengths, bolt face size and both Carbon and Stainless Steel!
    Then I notice that the only one made in the U.S.A. is the Small Bolt Face (.223 etc) Short Action Carbon Steel version!
    For those unfamiliar with a Brownell's catalog, being patriotic American's as they are, Brownell's print the Part Number of any American Made Product in "Red" and apart from the above mentioned Short Action M700, all the other Seven different Rem 700 action (long, short, .223, 06/08, magnum, Carbon, Stainless etc) part numbers, and printed in "Black"!

    So if this is correct, how long have Remington been making some of their model 700 (and others?) actions (etc?), in another country???

    Doh!

      They are all made in the USA.

      Of course you could believe a catalogue, but they are not exactly known for their editioral accuracy!

        G'day,

        Brownell's take their patriotism a bit more serious, than to make a TYPO like that!
        The general concensus is they are made in either Spain or Mexico???
