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.

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
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

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.
