Designed for the varmint hunter on the move, the new Remington Model 700 LV SF (Light Varmint, Stainless Fluted) weighs just 6.75 pounds and features a stainless-steel short action receiver that is pillar bedded, a blind box magazine, and a jeweled bolt. Its 22-inch, stainless-steel barrel has a medium contour and is fluted to reduce overall weight and increase heat dissipation. Adding to the weight reduction is a custom designed, black composite stock that features a semibeavertail forend, swivel studs, and a recoil-reducing R3 Recoil Pad. The Model 700 LV SF is available in four popular varmint calibers: .221 Remington Fireball, .17 Remington, .223 Remington, and .22-250. Magazine capacity for the .22-250 is four rounds; for the .221 Remington Fireball, .17 Remington, and .22-250, magazine capacity is five rounds. The suggested retail price is $919.
In an effort to "dress up" the classic Model 332 12-gauge over under shotgun, Remington introduces the Model 332 O/U High Gloss. The new shotgun carries a high-gloss American walnut stock and forend with a 20-lpi checkering pattern and a highly polished blued finish on the metalwork, which features a detailed engraved design directly inspired by an F-grade Model 32 built in 1938. The original "pointer" and "setter" remain on the receiver and are now encircled in an oval of fine scrollwork. The Model 332 O/U High Gloss has a modified box-lock action, mechanical set trigger, well-designed safety/barrel selector, and standard automatic ejectors. The light contour vent-rib barrels are constructed of high-strength chrome-moly steel and are available in 26-, 28-, and 30-inch lengths with the Rem™Choke system. The suggested retail price is $1624. For more information, contact Remington Arms Co. Inc., Dept. ST, 870 Remington Dr., Madison, NC 27025; 800-243-9700; www.remington.com.
