SHOT Show 2019 – The new Remington 700 CP is a bolt-action pistol based on the Company’s own, iconic Model 700 rifle, conceived for hunting and sport shooting
The CP moniker stands for “Chassis Pistol”, and what we have here is essentially a large-size handgun variant of the Remington Model 700 bolt-action rifle, particularly aimed to the hunters’ market – with handgun hunting, particularly from tree stands, being legal and popular in the United States.
A true heir of the legendary XP100, the Remington 700 CP however packs features that will also make it a viable alternative for several sport shooting disciplines, including – but not limited to – metallic silhouette shooting.
Built around the tried-and-true Remington Model 700 bolt action and the Company’s own aluminum alloy precision chassis, the Remington 700 CP Chassis Pistol features a MagPul MIAD pistol grip, an M-LOK free-float handguard, a single-point sling attachment point on the rear, and a 26 cm / 10.5” or 32 cm / 12.5” threaded barrel.
Other features of the Remington 700 CP Chassis Pistol include a full length top Picatinny rail for optics; an X-Mark Pro adjustable trigger, whose pull can be set between approximately 1,5 kg / 3.5 lbs and 2,5 kg / 5.5 lbs; and a MagPul P-MAG capable magazine well with a quick release lever.
The Remington 700 CP Chassis Pistol is 52,8 cm / 20.81” or 55,2 cm / 21.75” long overall, depending from the barrel length, for an overall weight of about 2,8 kilograms (5.95 to 6.15 pounds). The pistol is currently available in three calibers: .223 Remington, .308 Winchester and .300 BLK.
