Remington 700 ESR-1 Enhanced Sniper Rifle 86679

It would appear that Remington refuses to let the XM2010 Sniper Rifle platform die. The XM2010 was renamed M2010 and now it’s once again revamped with a .308 Winchester specific designation the “700 ESR-1”. The picture on the Remington Defense website appears to be the same old recycled picture from the XM2010/M2010 .300 Winchester Magnum pages. The Remington ESR-1 is currently available to law enforcement only.

Eurooptic sells the complete rifle package to the public under the original XM2010 name in .300 Winchester Magnum.

Note: Remington worked with Cadex on this early on. Cadex has been evolving their chassis ever since. If the XM2010 is out of your price range check out Cadex for a more up to date design.

Remington 700 ESR-1

The Remington 700 Enhanced Sniper Rifle (ESR-1) represents the latest evolution of the world’s most trusted precision rifle platform – the Remington Model 700.

The 700 ESR-1 features the new Remington Arms Chassis System (RACS) with a folding stock that allows for adjustment of the length of pull and cheek height and captures the bolt handle when folded. This allows the operator to configure his weapon to his personal physical requirements and transport the system more easily. The 700 ESR-1 can be tailored to meet any requirement as a base rifle, or as part of a combat-ready sniper weapon system including a variety of top-tier optics, Advanced Armament suppressor, bipod, deployment kit, and hard-side case with nested drag bag. Available in a short action configuration chambered in .308 Win (7.62x51mm NATO), the Remington 700 ESR-1 offers a solution for the professional shooter.

Fresh off the UPS truck and out the door of my local gunshop, my Remington M2010 barreled action is home where it belongs. This this Remington Barreled Action is the heart of the United States Army M2010 Sniper Rifle, formerly known as the Remington XM2010.

Remington M2010 Barreled Action Product Label

The Remington M2010 Barreled Action features a .300 Winchester Magnum chambered, 22 inch fluted, 1:10 twist, 5R barrel threaded 5/8-25 for an Advanced Armament Corp flash hider. The included trigger is the battlefield proven Remington M24 trigger.

My plan for this M2010 is to mate it up with a Cadex Defence modular chassis system to closely emulate the XM2010 Sniper Rifle. There will be differences though as my end use is that of a civilian and not a US Army sniper.

M2010 Sniper System,Systematically Eliminating All Variables

The M24 is based on the legendary Model 700™ and 40-X™ rifles. Its unmatched accuracy and reliability have made it the standard in long-range tactical situations. Over 15,000 sold since 1988. The Remington Sniper Weapon Systems make outfitting your operation efficient and simple.

From the basic M24 Sniper System – the standard for the U.S. Army since 1988 – to the advanced M2010 configuration, we include the world-famous rifle and all the premium, service-proven components you need. Remington® was awarded the U.S. M2010 Army Enhanced Sniper Rifle (ESR) contract in September 2010 to reconfigure up to 3,600 M24 Sniper Weapon Systems after a full and open competition.

Designed as an upgrade to the venerable M24 SWS, the M2010 comes configured with the Remington® Arms Chassis System (RACS). The M2010 gives the sniper greater capability, lethality and flexibility offered by the 300 Winchester Magnum round, a detachable box magazine, a Leupold® variable powered optic, full rail systems for mounting of ancillary equipment and signature reduction in the form of an AAC TiTAN QD suppressor.
