Remington Arms Company is celebrating their 200th anniversary in style. The company has agreed to donate a portion of its sales of 200th anniversary Limited Edition guns to the National Rifle Association, up to $50,000. The donation program will run until December 31, 2016.
Only 2,016 of each model will be produced in this limited edition run. The guns will include commemorative engravings, special serial numbers, a medallion in the grip and special packaging. The long guns will have C-grade American walnut stocks with fleur de lis checkering. The line, representing some of the best offerings in the company's history, includes the Model 700, Model 7600, Model 870, Model 1100 and the Model 1911 R1.
More Remington 200th Anniversary Guns
The Limited Edition gun series from Remington highlighted above is one of three the company is producing to celebrate their bicentennial. There are also Remington Commemorative Edition models are available in Model 870 shotgun, Model 700 ADL rifle and Model 1911 R1 pistol examples. Commemorative guns are embellished with special anniversary badging which appears as a bronze-colored grip cap on the rifle and shotgun, and as highlight engraving in the walnut grip cap of the handgun. In addition, the walnut shotgun and rifle stocks bear very handsome fleur-de-lis checkering treatments. Commemorative Model 700s are offered in .243 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 Sprg. and .300 Win. Mag. calibers.
Last but not least, Remington’s Custom Shop has created four Custom Bicentennial Sets, each consisting of a Model 700 Rifle, a Model 870 shotgun and a Model 1911 R1 pistol. These guns were hand-engraved by master craftsman Jesse Kaufman in bespoke ornate scrollwork enhanced with 24-kt. gold inlay and are stocked in exhibition-grade walnut. Truly worthy of this momentous occasion. All proceeds will go to charities and Remington conservation groups. The final set will be auctioned off this week in a live auction sponsored by James D. Julia Auctioneers.
