Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

Brownells Contracts With Remington to Be Exclusive Outlet for 700 Short Action Receiver

For the first time, shooters and custom gun makers can quickly and easily order the popular Remington 700 Short Action Receiver from a single designated outlet, thanks to an exclusive contract between Brownells and Remington Arms Co.

Brownells now carries both the standard (.308 bolt face) and small (.223 bolt face) versions of the Remington 700 Short Action Receiver. With the standard or small receiver, custom rifles can be chambered in a wide variety of current production calibers or a favorite high-performance wildcat. Classic factory-discontinued chamberings are also an option. Known for its superior strength and reliable performance, the 700 Short Action is often the top choice for firearms ranging from fast-handling lightweight carbines to United States Marine Corps sniper rifles.

“We are very, very pleased to partner with Remington in offering the legendary 700 Short Action Receiver only for the convenience of its many fans,” said Frank Brownell, company president. “In the past, acquiring a reliable 700 action always meant searching for a used one at gun shows or on the Internet, or buying a new rifle and pirating the action. Now, a factory-original 700 can be ordered from Brownells 24 hours a day by phone or at our on-line store on the website. With that order, the customer will get, as always, the best service we can possibly provide, and satisfaction is guaranteed 100 percent.”

The Brownells suggested retail price for either the standard or small Remington 700 Short Action Receiver is $400. An FFL is required for purchase.

In addition to the 700 Short Action, Brownells offers other Remington factory parts including triggerguards, magazine kits and triggerguard/magazine kits. For more information, call the Brownells toll-free order line at 800-741-0015.
