Remington is turning the big 2-0-0. It is not every day that an American firearms company hits that number. Actually, they are the oldest so there hasn’t been anyone else to hit the Bicentennial. So what do you do when you turn 200? Well, Remington decided to make some guns, some special guns to mark the occasion.
If you ask 100 people to name the most iconic of Remington’s products over the past 200 years you will undoubtedly see a couple come to the top of the list. The 700, 870, 1100, 7600… add in a 1911 and you have the special editions Remington has put together to mark this milestone.
But these are not just your run-of-the-mill guns with a 200th-anniversary roll mark. These are works of art!
Take a look at the pictures below to get an idea of the level of fit and finish on these guns. The walnut on all of the long guns has a beautiful figure. The bluing is deep, dark and glossy. There is engraving and gold inlay on all of the guns. I must admit that it has been a long time since the fit and finish on a Remington has wowed me. These are wow guns. The work here is what you expect from a high-end custom shop.
Of course, this high-end craftsmanship comes with a high-end price tag. Remington is only making 2,016 of each model. The prices range from $1,499 for the 870 to $2,399 for the 700. We are not sure on the exact timeline, but Remington said all of these guns will be shipping this year.
