Description:

This is a commercial version of the US Army's M24 sniper rifle. It was manufactured by Remington Arms Company and is marked Model 700/M24; however, it is NOT "U.S." marked. The left side of the receiver is roll marked "REMINGTON/MODEL 700 M24", and it is fitted with a 24 inch stainless steel barrel that is roll marked on the left side "7.62 NATO", with the right side stamped with the standard Remington factory proof marks. The receiver is fitted with a single piece mount with an Ultra 10x-M3A scope. It has an adjustable HS precision composite stock with adjustable buttplate and detachable sling swivels. The scope comes with a set of Butler Creek lens covers. The buttstock has been over sprayed with a multi-tone "snakeskin" desert camouflage pattern paint. Includes a Harris bipod. The consignor states that this rifle was part of a limited series of commercial M24 rifles built up by Remington c.2012. Utilizing a new-made barrel and receiver, the series also used a number of original M24 components returned as surplus by the U.S. Army, including spare and issued stocks with any customization applied by the issued sniper preserved.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retaining 90% original black finish with some handling marks. Buttstock is very good as well with 85% of the desert camouflage with dings and scratches. Optics are sharp, reticle solid. Mechanically excellent.
