Decked out with a classy new stock and enhanced for accuracy, the Remington 783 Walnut Edition has everything shooters look for in a rifle, including a price that can’t be beat.
Remington seemed to hit a sweet spot with the release of the Model 783 a few years back. A true workingman’s bolt-action, the rifle provided excellent accuracy for almost any practical shooting situation, at a price that came nowhere near breaking the bank. And as Gun Digest editor Luke Hartle discovers in the above video, Big Green has added another facet to the versatile entry-level line of guns – a touch of class.
As the name implies, the Remington 783 Walnut Edition finds the rifle decked out in an attractive stick of American Walnut. As Remington’s John Fink explains, this is quite a break from the status quo. Up to this point, the 783’s stock has been strictly a synthetic affair. But the Walnut Edition’s striking good looks isn’t the only reason why the rifle might be worth a look.
Fink points out a number of simple, yet desirable features that enhance the accuracy potential of the 783 Walnut Edition, from the robust and stiff action to the meaty and rigid magnum-contour barrel. On top of that, Remington is also offering a package deal on the rifle, complete with a Vortex Crossfire 3-9x40mm scope. Best of all, as a stand alone rifle or decked out with an optic, the Remington 783 Walnut Edition comes in under $600.
