Remington is consistently one of America’s top three firearms manufacturers.
Remington maintains this status by manufacturing best-selling pump and autoloading shotuns, in addition to the most popular centerfire hunting rifles in the world.
Some of the most popular Remington firearms are:
Articles on Remington Firearms
Remington Arms Co. is the top firearms manufacturer in the United States. For the years 2001, 2002 and 2003, Remington made more firearms than any U.S. company, according to data from the ATF. When Remington emerged as the number one manufacturer in 2001, it was history making. For the first time in modern history, a long-gun company was the country’s top manufacturer of firearms.
Remington has formed a subsidiary, Spartan Gunworks by Remington, to handle a line of Russian-made “value-priced break-action shotguns.” Seventeen single-shot, side-by-side and over-and-under shotguns are part of the initial offering. According to Remington officials, the guns are primarily targeted for the mass-merchandising market.

Articles on Remington Rifles
alled the “Guide Rifle.” it could serve well in that capacity, and with its 22-inch barrel, it does qualify as a rifle. Cosmetically, it looks a lot like the old Model 600. The ventilated rib is there, nut it’s now made of steel rather than plastic The distinctive shark fin front sight of the 1960s has returned and looks as racy as ever. The laminated stock has been retained. although it’s a bit beefier and more conventional in shape than the Model 600’s.
Remington has now adapted the Model 7 to accept its new cartridges, the 7mm and .300 Short Action Ultra Magnums (SAUM).The objective is to retain the good handling features of the standard Model 7 while meeting the needs of those who want more power and flatter trajectory.
Hallmark of innovation: The Remington Model Eight: Old fashioned doesn’t necessarily mean obsolete. The sleek Remington Model 8 is still fit for the game trails
The Model 8 is recoil-operated with a rotating bolt and double-locking lugs. The gun fires from a fixed 5-shot magazine and is equipped with a bolt hold-open that engages after the last shot is fired. The autoloading action was made more revolutionary by the incorporation of a barrel that was shrouded in a full-length jacket. When the gun is fired, the barrel moves backward inside the shroud. This arrangement is largely believed to be the first effective recoil reduction system.
Remington 700 Titanium: Remington’s new space-age rifle offers everything you like about the Model 700 and less
The Remington M700 Titanium is an impressive rifle. Its basic design is that of the famous Model 700, which is America’s most popular bolt-action sporting rifle and boasts a production of well over 4 million units. The key feature of the new model is, of course the titanium receiver which helps keep rifle weight down to an amazing 5.5 pounds in the long-action and 5.25 pounds in the short-action. This light weight is achieved in a standard-sized rifle, 42.5 inches overall with the long-action, and a 22-inch barrel. The stock’s length-of-pull is 13 3/8 inches.
The Model 700 EtronX has two distinctly novel systems. While neither electric priming nor electronic triggers are new, the combination of the two in a sporting gun is a new development.
Big Green has taken some of the best components of their classic Model 700 (namely the trigger and chamber design), combined them with some innovative new elements which take advantage of state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, added a Bushnell scope, and given the whole thing a suggested retail of $359.
When the Remington Model 700 first appeared 38 years ago, it was an instant hit with American shooters. Since that time, more than 3 1/2 million Model 700s have been manufactured and sold. That makes it America’s, really the world’s, best-selling centerfire sporting rifle. Talk about success stories!
Would you like to have a rifle capable of consistently hitting a silver dollar at 300 yards? Big deal, you say, plenty of varmint rifles in .22-250 or .220 Swift can do that. How about one capable of hitting a silver dollar at 300 yards — with 3,000 ft./lbs. of energy? That’s more energy than a .30-’06 develops at the muzzle. If you feel you need such a combination of accuracy and power, Remington has the equipment that can provide it — the Sendero in .338 Rem. Ultra Mag.
This rifle has no mechanical trigger, sear, cocking piece, mainspring or firing pin. Instead, what looks like a normal trigger from the outside is actually a micro switch. In place of a conventional striker assembly is a simple electrode that protrudes slightly from the center of the bolt face and engages a slight detent in what otherwise looks like a conventional large rifle primer. The electricity needed for ignition is provided by an ordinary replaceable radio battery concealed within the butt-stock that furnishes enough juice for at least 1,000 shots.
There’s no cocking piece, mainspring or firing pin inside the conventional-looking bolt; instead there’s an electrode powered by a battery housed in the buttstock that’s activated by a micro-switch trigger.
The 710 is a lot of rifle for the money and should prove a worthy addition to the Remington line.
Articles on Remington Shotguns
Sporting auto shotguns have escalated in price in the last decade as companies meet the wider performance window many hunters demand. Dedicated waterfowlers are shooting 3 1/2″ autos to launch enough steel shot for far away ducks and geese. Turkey hunters demand the same thing, but for launching buckets of lead in beachball-size patterns. What if you’re like me and only occasionally hunt waterfowl and mostly hunt upland birds like dove, quail, chukar and shoot recreational skeet and sporting clays? For such occasions I don’t need a gun costing in excess of $1,200. If geese, duck and turkey were my passion, then yes, I would need one. It does improve the odds.
To me the test of time is one of the most important measures of the success or failure of any firearm. When we work within a field where the technology is very mature, truly new stuff is hard to find. Often we see the same basic action adapted to fill different roles. That is how it is with the Remington 870 pump. Since it has been in continuous production since 1950, I guess we’d have to call it a success. More than 7 million sold removes the guesswork.
If I had to characterize the Model 332 I would use words like “versatile” and “utilitarian.” The production model, which is competitively priced, will do a lot of things well. I’ve used it for skeet, sporting clays and quail hunting and with the exception of swapping a few Remchoke tubes there has been no need to mess with it.
If there has ever been an all-around champ of shotguns it must be the Remington 1100. It was the first widely successful gas-operated semiautomatic shotgun; heck successful isn’t even close to being superlative enough. Hugely successful is modest praise.
The Remington Ideal 300 is an ideal Over/Under indeed.
Articles on Remington Ammunition
Rumors about the existence of a special ops cartridge that was more powerful than the 5.56 and compatible with the existing M16/M4 platform have been swirling around for several years. Well, it’s minor no more. The 6.8mm Remington SPC (Special Purpose Cartridge) is a fact.
Recoil isn’t a good thing. And the more you have to put up with the worse you’ll shoot. I know some folks think it’s keen to beat themselves up but the same can be done with a hammer for much less money. My view is that we should have to withstand no more recoil than is necessary to accomplish whatever our goal may be.
The action of the Model 504 is completely new and quite a departure from the Model 541-S and T that featured a rear locking bolt with 6 lugs. For ease of manufacture the action body is tubular in form like that of the Model 700. What is impressive are the massive .300 inch thick action walls. providing valuable accuracy enhancing rigidity, strength, and bedding contact.
The strong points of the .17 Rem. have been its lack of recoil and its fast stepping, thin jacketed bullets that reduce ricochets to almost zero. To anyone used to shooting the centerfires, the experience of shooting a. 17 Rem. for the first time boggles the mind. Pressing the trigger, you launch a 25-grain bullet at 4,000+ fps and actually see the bullet hit through your scope. True, other varmint cartridge combinations produce similar results but not anywhere near the sensation of the .17 Rein. or one of its wildcat kin.
Disintegrator is a very high-tech gallery bullet. It’s made of iron and when it contacts steel is reduced to little more than dust. The patented bullet (U.S. Patent #5917143) is made by a mechanical process in which a mixture of iron powder with particles of different, but specific, sizes are cold compacted under pressures of 100,000 psi or more.
For some months now, I have been on a noble quest to see just how good it can get with my neat little Cooper rifle.
Cartridges come, and cartridges go. The .30-30 has been around since 1895 and the .35 Remington since 1906. I expect both of them to be around for many more years with shooting pleasure in store for many more generations of levergun lovers.
With hundreds of thousands of .222 rifles in existence, the cartridge isn’t about to go away. Loaded ammunition will remain available for many decades. The most recent list of RCBS reloading die sales shows the .222 in 18th place among rifle cartridges, ahead of such numbers as the 7mm STW, .280 Rem, .220 Swift and 6mm Rem. Evidently shooters are buying up those used .222s and keeping them fed.
Loading Remington’s 7mm Ultra Mag: Petty tests Hadgdon’s loading data for the hot new 7mm Ultra Magnum
Ever think about launching a 7mm bullet at 4,000 fps? That isn’t doable yet, but we sure can come close. In the new 7mm Remington Ultra Mag., Hodgdon’s loading data shows 3,800 fps with a 100-grain Hornady hollowpoint. That’s faster than the .22-250 with a bullet that’s half the weight!

The Remington Arms Company historian said of the book, “As complete a history of any firearm that I have ever read; all the elements are there. Myszkowski is the authority on modern Remington pump and autoloading rifles. If one has a question about them, the answer is in his book.”
Robert W. D. Bell has done a good job of writing a book that will catch the eye of the novice collector or even the the average gun owner but has enough serious content to be of use to serious Remington collectors. It is concise and well layed out with beautifully photographed firearms which be a real help in identifing that old Remington gun that Grandpa had or be the first book an antique dealer consults when finding the word Remington on an old gun.
