Rifles - Tactical Remington:


Has anyone seen or shot the new Tactical Remington with the 20" barrel?? Who is making the stock on them?? Is it still and H&S?? They look like a neat little rifle, should be the answer for the Law Enforcemant boys.

Have one of those Rem. Lightweights at the shop right now. 20" barrel, three wide flutes, stock is H-S, like the PSS stock but forend is a bit shorter and narrower, and no palm swells, nice and light, I think around 7-8 pounds. No subsitute for a heavy barreled guns, but if you want a lightweight, quick handeling, easy to hump for miles, it looks pretty good. It is for sale, see www.awesomearms.com for info.

Pat; Do we have to show our "Wheaties" badges to buy that new tactical or is it for sale to any Cheerios eater? Remington has a habit you know and seems to be getting more selective about who they sell their so called "tactical" stuff too.

Mike S,
Thanks for the comeback! I seen a picture of one and they look like they would be a nice tool for law enforcement or humping over hill and dale.

I think it depends on the dealer, some wont sell you a PSS without a dept. letter head and the next will sell it to anyone.

I would like opinions on the new Remington PSS Tactical vs. the standard as far as accuracy. I have been looking at the standard now for about a year and when I decided to buy one they had the tactical with the 20" barrel so now I am not sure what I want. The guy I talked to claims the tactical is just as accurate as the standard. I find that hard to believe. Any opinions from more experienced shooters would be a great help. Thanks

Chris,

In a nutshell, longer barrels usally give a little extra velocity and the balance seems better to many on offhand and "leading" /tracking shots. Noise is further from the shooter too.
