Why People are Still Searching for a Remington 721 270 For Sale

Remington rifles are made by the oldest gun manufacturer in the United States.  The story goes that in 1816 Eliphalet Remington II entered a shooting match with a custom made flintlock muzzle loading rifle.  Eliphalet forged a barrel which he then took to a gunsmith in Utica, NY where the barrel was reamed and rifled.  This was then used to build the flintlock rifle that Eliphalet Remington took to the shooting contest.  Apparently, after the competition, other contestants were so impressed with the gun that they wanted to get one of the rifles too.  And so began the longstanding history of the Remington company, and the beginning of a long line of popular Remington rifles.  One such rifle is the popular Remington Model 721.  With all the modern rifles available, why would someone be looking to buy a rifle that is over 50-60 years old?  Well, a couple reasons include the legendary accuracy and reliability of the 721 rifle.  In terms of caliber, many people like the .270 cartridge for hunting.  If you find a Remington 721 270 rifle for sale for a good price, then you can get a lot of gun for your money.  Even though one of these rifles can be over 50 years old, they can still be found in great condition as long as they were properly cared for by the previous owners.

Remington 700 BDL

The Remington 700 is well known for its accuracy, durability, and quality.  For strength and consistency, the receiver is machined out of a solid chunk of steel.  The receiver is cylindrically shaped which gives it a solid bedding in the stock for better shot consistency and accuracy.  A recessed bolt face mates with a counterbore at the entrance of the barrel.  In addition, this portion of the barrel is supported by the steel receiver that surrounds it.  What this all means is that the Remington 700 is built very strong.  This strength not only means that the 700 is very durable, but it is also part of the reason for the outstanding accuracy of this rifle.  With everything locked together so solidly, the Remington 700 can be more consistent in how the bullet exits the barrel from shot to shot.
