    Are these considered match grade?
    I’ve heard the term target grade which I’m guessing is the same thing?

    Anybody have input?

    Brand, brand new or used?

    Depending on how old could be nice. New, I wouldn't touch it.

    I have a Remington 700AAC SD and I love it. It shoots great, but with the 20" barrel I only shoot out to 750 yards. I don't now the difference between the model I have and the police model you reference.

    Well after trading my 700 and talking with my guy at the gunshop I will stay away from the new ones.

    He says even in 75 degree a/c they have to wipe down the ones they have for sale new.

    He said look for an old one.

    I have a trigger recall 700 ADL plastic in 308. It's never had the recall done but has been inspected for the excess epoxy that caused the recall. I polished the interior of receiver bridges and now it's silk. Weighted and balanced with the pivot point right at the take down bolt. Stippling here and there. I occasionally run an AimPoint Pro instead of a weaver classic 6. With a red dot it's lots of fun.

    The bolt lugs need lapped with either the barrel being rechambered or set back to headspace. No biggy.


    I got it more then six years ago. Is this rifle outside the current quality issues? Besides the trigger that is.

    It's a Remington so it is inside the quality issues.
