The Remington 40X bolt-action rifle was designed as a gun for the US Army snipers in the 1960s and over the past half century it has been constantly renewed, proving itself even in bench rest and long range shooting competitions. The version proposed by Paganini at the Vicenza fair proudly claims the martial character of this weapon with a version called "Stars & Stripes".
Remington 40X Stars & Stripes rifle: features
The most obvious feature of this version is the spiral fluting on barrel and bolt body. Chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum, .308 Winchester or .338 Lapua Magnum the Remington 40X Stars & Stripes is equipped with a 26” / 66 cm barrel with 5-grove rifling complete with an AAC's muzzle brake.
The Mac Millan tactical stock features aluminum bedding and the adjustable rubber Spacer System.
The rifle is equipped with a Badger Ordnance 20 MOA rail mounted above the action, while a second Picatinny rail on the lower part of the handguard allows for easy bipod mounting. The Accuracy International magazine is single-stack. The bolt is a classic two-lug type with Sako extractor, complete with spiral fluting. The Remington 40X trigger unit is fully adjustable.
Being a gun with exclusive features and manufactured in limited edition price is certainly not light: about 10,000 euro.
