    Default Remington 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD (Base for M24 "sniper rifle")

    I just bought a Remington 700 SPS (Synthetic Special Purpose) Tactical AAC (Advanced Armorment Corp.) SD (Suppression Device). I'm hoping it will be here Saturday, if not, Monday. I'm posting this thread because the price of this rifle has gone up $40 in last two weeks! I think it will continue to go up so if you want an accurate .308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO that you can mod a thousand different ways buy this! Links below:

    Thanks for the headsup. The 700 is a really solid rifle. I'm really interested in the AAC Blackout - think my next toy is going to be one.

    In this case, the 'AAC Blackout' is a brand name addition to the Rem 700 line - and refers to the rifle's ability to accept the AAC Blackout Flash Hider and Suppressors - not the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge.

    Centerfire Rifle - Model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD - Remington Centerfire Rifles

    I have the AAC Blackout Flash Hider/suppressor mount on my 7.62 AR (post on the newest addition to the safe to follow soon).

    As it stands, out of the box the 700 is a capable rifle. If you're going for sniper grade accuracy, though, you're going to need to put a bit more work into one. For me, I would choose a 700 action from one of a few custom makers, and a match grade Criterion barrel or similar - and a Timney or Jewell trigger. It'll cost a few hundred bucks more than the above package, but if you're trying to make headshot sized hits at 500 meters every little bit helps - or hurts.

    Nice Doc, Remington's partnering in the early days with the USMC armory has produced a solid weapon in the 700 straight barrel... up'ing the anti anti with the barrel switch and supressor makes for one awesome weapon....


    Whats your opinion on integrated suppressers to barrels for long barrel Rifles like the 700?... Good idea?.... Short range sniping maybe?

    The British have a nice "short supresser" and artic bolt design on their .338 weapon which is awesome, the design prevents zero temp bold freeze and you can load in shooting position on a rifle that has great accuracy upto 1000m and beyond.. its ideal in sub zero to desert conditions for long rang hunting of deer, stag, al quada operatives...lol..... what ever game you are chasing on any given day is what that bad boy will bring down..

    First off, I have to admit that my experience with suppressors is extremely limited - I've fired them maybe a half a dozen times. But within those limits, the only integrally suppressed weapons I have seen are the HK MP5-SD 9mm SMG, the Ruger 10/22, the ruger Mark III pistol, and similar. Part of this is physics - suppressors get dirty quickly and require cleaning, and one which can be removed and disassembled makes the chore easier and quicker than one where you have to take the whole weapon down. Additionally, many weapons are designed to switch between suppressed (short range and quiet) and non-suppressed (longer range) roles, so it makes sense to be able to remove the suppressor at will.

    For extremely long range weapons like the L115A3 (for our friends - the UK sniper rifle in .338 which holds the current record for longest kill) the suppressor by no means silences the weapon - it just makes it much harder to identify exactly where the shot came from. This is of course of tremendous benefit to military snipers who rely on camouflage and extremely sneaky movement techniques to get close, make the shot, and then exfiltrate without being compromised.

    Got the rifle, added a Nikon Buckmaster BDC scope, Harris Bipod, and a buttstock ammo pouch. Very nice gun. I need to shoot, clean, shoot, clean some more to get my groups smaller, but it is a very nice weapon.

    All I have to say is wow. They swapped my 16 with a 4 over here with an ACOG on it and finally had to go to the range to zero. That ACOG is awesome. Line that red light and arrow properly and you in the black each and every time. Yes, you need to apply the principles as well.

    +1 to the ACOG - I run a TA33 H-G (Green horseshoe reticle, 3x magnification) on my competition carbine, and the glass is nothing short of fantastic! Of course, for $850 it should be!

    They use Lapua rounds for the L1, and its highly effective for long range sniping, and a real killer for mid range sniping suppressed... the round truly compliments the weapon for any Artic Fox out here..

    ACOGs, man, theres so much that has happened i advancements in recent years... Mr. Iron Sights is becoming an endangered species!!... I guess when i hit the US again, I must get some range time and try them out to see if its "all that".. lol..
