TriggerTech Diamond Trigger For Remington 700 and Clones

According to our favorite website the Precision Rifle Blog, the TriggerTech Diamond Trigger is the most common Remington 700 trigger in use by precision rifle shooters. In fact, more competitive shooters use the Diamond Trigger than all other triggers combined. We hope to get our hands on one soon and compare it to a Bix’N Andy we will be using for a Remington 700 .22LR project at our Rimfire World site.

Full Description

The first Rem 700 Diamond Trigger was shown at the 2017 NRA Show. Since then TriggerTech has worked with the K&M Shooting Team and several leading R700 Clone action manufacturers the refine the product. The Rem 700 Diamond is truly zero creep and is the most consistent and crisp breaking trigger you will ever use. The diamond will make you aware of the creep that exists in other triggers. It features new variable rate adjustment technology that enables quick and confident adjustment from <4oz – 32oz with TriggerTech’s patented CLKR Technology™. The adjustment feature utilizes externally accessible set screw and the adjustment range begins at ~0.2 oz/click from <4 oz to ~9 oz and the changes to ~1 oz click from ~9 oz to 32 oz. Due to the exceptionally crisp break, most shooters report the pull weights feeling significantly lighter than a friction based trigger of the same measured weight. Five of the critical Diamond components are assembled as matched set to enable a true zero-creep break, extremely short overtravel, and offer outstanding reliability, even in the harshest environments. Frictionless Release Technology™, along with hardened 440C stainless steel internal components ensure corrosion resistance and extended service life. As Frictionless Release Technology™ does not rely on the coating, polishing, or lubricating the key engagement surfaces, trigger pulls will be more consistent from shot to shot and after thousands of shots than you ever thought possible.

All pull weights and measurements are approximate. ***Pull weights of TriggerTech Triggers are directly impacted by firing pin spring weight. Overweight firing pin springs may cause pulls weights to vary above the advertised range***

Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor

Picture of a Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle

Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle

The Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle is a bold move from Remington in a few ways. The first being the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge caliber. Many felt that Remington would never offer 6.5CM because it is too similar to .260 Remington. Fortunately that theory was incorrect. Remington wisely sees the writing on the wall and recognizes that 6.5 Creedmoor is not a passing fad and is poised to be a game changer in long range accuracy and power. Remington also recognizes there’s money to be made in a modern Remington Model 700 Rifle.

Remington Model 700 Magpul Hunter Stock

The next bold move is the offering of a factory rifle that features the Magpul Hunter modular chassis. First off traditional hunters may not recognize or be familiar with Magpul but AR-15, AR-10 and 308 AR shooters are. Magpul is a staple brand offering some of the best magazines and stocks in the business.  Magpul is a breath of fresh air to the bolt action rifle. The Magpul hunter stock is like a bolt action rifle version of the Magpul PRS AR stock. This is a good thing and it’s a big step away from standard Bell & Carlson synthetic rifle stocks offered by Remington for decades.

The adoption of the Magpul stock brings with it the ability for a Remington 700 factory rifle to use Accuracy International “AICS” type magazines. These are the standard among most sniper rifles and rifle chassis. Magpul AICS magazines are very inexpensive.

Why is the Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle Special

The 6.5 Creedmoor is a Hornady designed modern cartridge that was designed from the ground up as a competition cartridge. The caliber has a history of winning competitions. The long and slender design of the bullet provides greater accuracy down range and is flatter shooting than the .308 Winchester. In fact the US Military is studying the 6.5 Creedmoor as a replacement for the .308 Winchester in some applications. The 6.5 Creedmoor is ballistically superior to the .308 Winchester. This translates to a better hit probability at ranges exceeding 700 yards. The .308 is more powerful down range but the more accurate 6.5mm bullet increases the odds of actually hitting the target. Obviously as closer ranges both calibers are very accurate.

Remington 700 5R barrel is the same barrel that is used on the Remington Police and Military sniper rifles and similar. This is not an entry level economy barrel.

Note: Inevitably these types of posts turn into pissing contests and emotionally biased arguments. Here’s a few facts. .308 Winchester ammunition can be found cheaper. At this time given the intended use 6.5 Creedmoor ammo is only available in the premium lines from ammunition manufacturers. The same ammo in .308 is about the same price. 6.5CM does not have the advantage of being a NATO/Military round so there’s no bulk ammo pricing. Despite folks saying ammo availability for 6.5CM is limited that is simply not true. It’s available at the chain stores and most real gun shops. It lacks the shelf space in mom and pop gas stations. Hardly a deal breaker for most. The Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle may not appeal to all hunters and shooters but those who understand it’s purpose and abilities will be pleased.

Essentially the Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor rifle is a low recoil long range superbly accurate sniper rifle for hunters at slightly higher cost than a standard Remington Model 700.

Remington 700 XCR Tactical 300 Win Mag

Remington 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Rifle 84462

Remington 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Rifle .300 Winchester Magnum 84462

What is a Remington XCR Rifle? “Remington XCR” stands for “Remington Extreme Condition Rifle. The XCR rifle features a stainless steel action and a polymer stock that can safely withstand long periods of hunting with little or no maintenance, without losing accuracy. It’s based on the well-known Remington 700 series of bolt action rifles.

I have wanted to acquire a base rifle with more range and energy than the .308 Winchester/7.62 NATO for quite some time. I also wanted it chambered in a caliber fielded by the US Military. It ensures a good supply of ammo at a reasonable price. I had briefly considered the .338LM, but in reality, it’s way more gun than anywhere I can shoot would allow. The ammunition is also still at a premium price. I have settled on a Remington 700 XCR Tactical chambered in 300 Win Mag based on these factors. This Remington 700 XCR Tactical will undergo a few changes over the next 12 months. Of course, it will be shot as is, but I look forward to some interesting, if not motivating, changes.

Remington 700 XCR Tactical Rifles offer the perfect solution for long-range precision shooters. A long-time favorite of both the military and tactical police units, the Model 700 offers the legendary accuracy, and unfailing performance youíve come to expect. Our Model 700 XCR Long Range Tactical Rifle features a 40-X externally adjustable trigger and 416 stainless steel barreled action with Black TriNyte PVD coating, providing a diamond-hard layer of defense against the elements.

Its new tactical Bell & Carlson stock comes in OD green with black webbing. It features a full-length aluminum bedding block, tactical beavertail fore-end, and a recessed thumb-hook for optimum ìoff the benchî shooting performance. The barrel features wide tactical-style barrel fluting for rapid cooling.

Remington 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Review

Remington Model 700 XCR Long Range 300 Win Mag

The Remington 700 XCR Tactical Long Range is aptly named, with sub-MOA accuracy at 300 feet, and shown here with a Vortex Viper Scope and Harris bipod.

Short-barreled precision rifles are convenient to carry and extract from a vehicle, and they’re also more difficult to steady. The short barrel reduces velocity if you want to stretch the range; velocity matters because it flattens trajectory; this makes range estimation less critical. When shooting distances extending beyond 500 yards, there’s no substitute for a long barrel and Magnum performance. Remington’s Model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range rifle is a “reach out and touch them” kind of rifle.

Remington has a long history of manufacturing tactical bolt-action rifles for military organizations and law enforcement use. When the department I first worked for established a designated marksman team, they acquired a Remington tactical-style bolt-action rifle in .308 Winchester. This was all the rifle they needed as a municipality since shots were most likely to be inside 200 yards. That’s not the case with all law enforcement agencies.

Remington offers their 700 XCR Tactical Long Range rifle in .223 Remington and .308 Winchester, and the .300 Winchester Magnum. The Magnum offering provides a distinct performance advantage at a long-range. For example, between 900 and 925 yards, the Federal 175-grain Sierra MatchKing load for the .308 Winchester will drop 2 feet. Federal’s 190-grain Sierra MatchKing load for the .300 Win. Mag. only drops 17 inches.

Remington Model 700 XCR Long Range 300 Win Mag 01
The forearm on the stock has a nice palm-filling swell that is appreciated when shooting off-hand or from hasty field positions.

This may not seem like that big of a deal. After all, you click in your elevation adjustments for the specific range you’re shooting. However, range estimation is the hardest part of long-range shooting, and you can’t take your range estimation using a mil-dot reticle or a rangefinder as gospel. It’s effortless to make a 10- to 20-yard mistake at 900 yards—the increased velocity of the .300 Win. Mag. makes small range estimation errors less critical and increases the odds of first-round hits at extreme range.

A flatter trajectory is not the only plus. As impact velocity drops, so does the ability of the bullet to expand and create large wound cavities. The velocity increase between the .308 Winchester and the .300 Winchester Magnum stretches this workable velocity range by at least another 150 yards or so.

Remington Model 700 XCR Long Range 300 Win Mag 02
The rifle’s action is standard Remington 700 with a two-position safety. Note the black webbing on the rifle’s green finish.

Gun Details:
One of the common characteristics of many long-range rifles is notable weight. Remington’s Model 700 Target Tactical rifle is a perfect example; it weighs 11.75 pounds. Dress one of these rifles up with a tactical scope and a bipod, and you’re pushing 15 pounds. The model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range is a lightweight, long-range rifle weighing 3.5 pounds less than the Tactical Target version and many other long-range rifles from other builders.

This lighter weight is achieved with a unique, slim, and trim Bell & Carlson stock, which has a molded-in aluminum bedding block that allows full-length barrel free-floating. The stock also has a uniquely shaped underbelly with a cut-out for a rear bench bag. Alternatively, you can also use the cut-out as a hook for your off-hand when shooting from the prone position or when shooting from a rest. I tried this while shooting with a bipod—the stock is also fitted with dual, front swivel studs for bipod mounting—and it worked perfectly. This was true when both using just my hand under the buttstock or when I used a small beanbag and squeezed it with my hand to adjust my aim slightly.

Another aspect of the stock I found very appealing was the color and finish. Some manufacturers think that the only appropriate color for anything tactical is black. That was Remington’s approach for a long time; the Remington 700 police rifle that my old department purchased years ago was available in any tactical color you wanted as long as that color was black.

Remington Model 700 XCR Long Range 300 Win Mag 03
The Remington 700 XCR Tactical Long Range Rifle comes with a hinged floorplate to ease speedy unloading.

For lack of a better term, the finish on this rifle’s stock features a ghoulish green background color streaked with a black web that provides a tactile feel and provides a medium shade of color to better blend with surroundings in the field or in urban settings. I liked it and considered the stock the best feature of this model 700.

In addition to this special stock, the rifle features a unique (Please turn to page )
fluted triangular-shaped barrel as well as the impressive 40-X externally adjustable trigger. The XCR designation means the rifle is made of 416 stainless steel, and all metal surfaces are coated with the black TriNyte Corrosion Control System.

As weird as the triangularly fluted barrel looks, it is cool. It is also another way Remington cut weight from this rifle but kept the long 26-inch tube that lets you extract all the performance you can from the .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge.

On the other hand, the trigger is not anything new but is still outstanding. For this rifle, Remington stepped away from their new X-Mark Pro Trigger that comes standard on the Model 700 and went with their 40-X trigger. This trigger broke consistently on at just a shade over 2 pounds. More importantly, this was one of those triggers that let you feel when it would break—no creep and no surprises. This is the trigger Remington uses on the famously accurate 40-X line of custom rifles. These triggers are user adjustable from 1.5 to 3.5 pounds. And, adjustments can be made without removing the action from the stock by means of a small hex-head screw.

The bottom portion of the stock is cut out to interface better with a rear support bag or the shooter’s support hand.

Range Time
When I received the model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range rifle for testing, I was preparing for a West Texas mule deer, whitetail, and aoudad hunt. I’d hunted this particular ranch before and knew that shots could be long, and this would be a terrific way to check the long-range performance of this tactical rifle. With that in mind, the three loads I tested in this rifle were all generally considered hunting loads. However, both of the Barnes VOR-TX loads would work equally well in tactical situations.

I was genuinely impressed with how this rifle shot. The trigger was superb, and the rifle was heavy enough that the big .300 Win. Mag. did not give me any recoil pain but light enough that I did not mind lugging it around. I was also enamored with the accuracy and consistency of the Barnes VOR-TX ammo. Both loads produced standard velocity deviations in the single digits and averaged less than an inch for three five-shot groups at 100 yards.

Final Thoughts
The XCR Tactical Long Range’s 26-inch barrel is not a compact rifle that would be easy to dig out of a patrol car. But, it is not overly heavy, and if you are toting this rifle up multiple flights of stairs or a steep hillside, you’ll accept the long barrel and savor the light heft. From a purely tactical standpoint, my only complaint would be the absence of a detachable magazine. Like many versions of the Remington 700, this rifle has the common hinged floorplate. For agencies looking for an accurate, long-range rifle that’s easy to carry, the Remington model 700 XCR Tactical Long Range in .300 Winchester Magnum looks to be a viable option.

As it turns out, I never needed the rifle’s reach during the Texas hunt but could not resist killing a nice, flat rock out at 660 yards. The rock was not a menace, but I couldn’t resist the temptation. I center punched the rock and then, for grins and giggles, did it a second time—to be sure. And maybe to show off just a little.

Atlas Bipod Review




The TRIGGERTECH REMINGTON 700 DROP IN TRIGGER uses Frictionless Release Technology, or FRT™, which provides a crisp, precise and zero creep release. Utilizing true rolling resistance eliminates the drawbacks associated with sliding friction, resulting in the best release possible. The trigger is fully adjustable from 1.5-4lb in positive click indicating 1 oz increments, and can be adjusted without removing from rifle.

  • Frictionless Release Technology (FRT™)
  • Single Stage Zero Creep release
  • Adjustable from 1.5-4 lb
  • Safety Integrated with bolt release
  • Stainless Steel Parts
  • Lubrication Free
  • Stainless Steel Components
  • Aluminum, T7075, anodized black housings

For the first time, we have solved the problem of sliding friction and its negative effect on trigger feel. Since the beginning of trigger design, manufacturers have been trying to dampen the negative effects of sliding friction. This kind of friction causes heavy pull weights and creep – both of these characteristics decrease accuracy and user feel. We have successfully introduced a patent pending free-floating roller in the trigger system that sits between the latch/trigger and the sear. Our Frictionless Release Technology™ rids the trigger of meaningful friction, eliminating creep and heavy pull weights. This drastically increases accuracy and overall user feel.
In addition, there is no wear between the critical surfaces of the release. Theoretically, these triggers can be shot forever without any degradation of the key release surfaces.
