M24A3 Reproduction

The Remington 700 rifle has had a pretty extensive service history in the US military, with the US Army adopting the long action variant as the M24 in 1988. Whilst originally chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, this was increased to the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge in the A3 variant to benefit from the cartridge’s incredible power and serious long range potential.

 

We started this build with the appropriate Remington 700 long action and a 26” TSE barrel, finished in a tan Cerakote finish to make our build a little bit different. A dovetail block was mounted for the appropriate front sight, and a Parker Hale model fitted. We used black HS Precision stock with an adjustable length of pull, and fitted a 3 round HSP floor plate and magazine. The original service models used a Leupold Mark4 8.5-25 scope and while we have one available, we opted to use our own Steiner T5Xi 5-25 scope for our shoot instead, providing the same optical magnification.

 

This rifle has long been an eye catching piece on our shelves and we have been keen for a chance to try it out for quite some time now. Hitting that 10” gong at 1040m confirms that it is absolutely capable of and excels at sub-MOA shooting, and for $5200 (not including optic) this rifle could be yours!
