ADL BDL CDL and the others?

What is worth paying the premium for?

Thanks

Really quick and dirty, with lots of omissions:

ADL = internal magazine, no floorplate
BDL = internal magazine, hinged floorplate, usually better cosmetics
CDL = cu$tom $hop
DM = detachable magazine

There are variations based on:

- stock materials (hardwood, walnut, synthetics
- barrel profile (heavy, fluted, standard, light)
- rifle weight
- action/barrel materials (blued carbon, stainless, titanium (receiver only)

The Remington website isn't bad...it doesn't make it easy to compare multiple rifles at once, but if you click around in the 700 section you can pretty much figure out where a particular model is on the spectrum (spectra?).

The Remington 700 PSS and the Remington 700 Varmint series are the same barreled action. The difference is in the stock used and the metal finish. Otherwise they are the same rifle and come off the same assembly line. :D

jnewell's close on the cdl... it is now an 'off the rack' offering. very much like a bdl, except the stock is satin finished instead of shiny... and the adl is now discontinued...

for the others
vls (varmint laminate): blue, 26" heavy barrel.
lvsf (light varmint stainless fluted): stainless action and barrel (fluted), 22", syn stock.
sendero: stainless, heavy, fluted barrel.
sps (used to be adl): very similiar to an adl, except has a floorplate.
xcr: single shot target rifle, laminate stock.
ti: titanium action, light stainless barrel... very light gun.

ok, there's more... www.remington.com can help further.

JNewell:

When you say the Remington 700 CDL is from the Custom Shop, what can one expect the CDL line to have (mechanically speaking) that the low-end models do not?

Lest us not forget the Etronix -

CDL is the new replacement for the BDL - a bit nicer wood over the SPS and a bit more attention to fit and fininsh detail. Not really a custom rifle anymore.

Go to your local shop and ask questions -

So, what does the Extreme Conditions Rifle (XCR) get in attention to detail or etc... over the SPS (mechanically speaking)?

I know it has a Hogue Overmolded Stock and special coatings on the barrel, while the SPS gets a plain version, but does the XCR get a better barrel or trigger?

147 Grain -- my info was out of date. Best current info is the 2005 catalog or the Remington website.

It's naming systems like this that drive me nuts!! What on earth does ADL mean? I was told that BDL mean "Basic Deluxe". This makes me long for the days when achronyms weren't cool or required.

by the bye... there is a common misperception that the mechanicals of
a Remington PSS are the same as other Remington rifles. Read: the PSS
is just a restock of the same receiver/barrel. This may be true for .308,
however, it is absolutely incorrect for .223. PSS in .223 has a 1:9 twist,
the others do not. Just an fyi for your amusement.

Enjoy,

While it's true that the VS and the PSS or whatever the "P" model is called now do use different stocks, they're the same price/quality H-S Precision stocks, just shaped a little differently.

Im kind of partial to the Mod 700 "Mountain Rifle". I have one in 7mm Mauser, and it is a joy to hunt with. It is not a target rifle by any means, but it has put 3 rounds into the same 1.5' @ 100 yds for 12 years now, with ~3k rounds down the tube, and 15 deer in the freezer.
