It started with an offhand comment. A group of us from NRA Publications was meeting with personnel from Remington Arms at SHOT Show 2018 to discuss new-product introductions for the coming year, coverage past, present and future, and advertising—same as we do every year not only with Remington but other companies as well. Indeed, this is how folks like us know about new products long before the general public.
Remington personnel kept returning to a couple of pet projects they’d completed the prior year. They were quite proud of one of them, a semi-custom rifle aimed at sheep hunters. I said, “We can do that.”
Spend enough time carrying rifles around the woods, and you’ll develop preferences for certain features on some and disgust for characteristics of others. You’ll come to form a notion of what the ideal hunting rifle should be, even though it may exist only in your mind. The Remington Model 700 American Hunter represents such desires based on nearly 140 years of cumulative hunting experience among this magazine’s staff. It’s more than just a tangible compilation of our tastes in rifles, however. It’s a rifle built for hunters, by hunters.
