New Ashbury SABER M700 Precision Rifle Exclusively at Cabela’s.
Ruckersville, VA. – Ashbury Precision Ordnance Mfg(APO) continues to expand its ever growing line of precision bolt action rifles built on variants of its patented SABER modular rifle chassis with the highly anticipated SABER M700 Precision Rifle now being offered exclusively through Cabela’s stores, “The World’s Foremost Outfitter”, nationwide and online. SABER M700 rifles are manufactured using select legendary Remington Model 700 barreled actions mated with the versatile second generation SABER MRCS-AR rifle chassis. Every SABER M700 Precision Rifle is built entirely in the USA and handcrafted by proud American craftsmen and US Military Veterans at Remington’s Alabama factory and Ashbury’s Virginia facility.
The impact of the AR rifle design on the landscape of the long gun shooting community is irrefutable and the SABER M700 Precision Rifle employing the legendary Remington factory M700 barreled action is a natural evolution. Shooters can now gain the benefits of the modular form, fit and functionality of their favorite AR in an accurate, factory precision, bolt action rifle with an attractive price point.
“In our collaboration with Remington and looking at the growth of the American rifle sports market, we conceived the SABER M700 as an entirely American-made sport utility rifle, much like the iconic Jeep – arguably the most customized SUV in America,” says Matthew Peterson, Ashbury’s Product Development Coordinator. “This solidly performing, rugged, range-ready rifle,” continues Peterson, “is easily configured and accessorized to meet the many needs of recreational shooters, hunters and entry level precision rifle competitors. We are also very excited about the prospects for APO’s long action, minimalist, Tactical Hunter variants of the SABER M700 chambered in 30-06, .300WM and .338LM.”
As customer’s marksmanship skills improve, shooting interests broaden to other exciting rifle sports, and the requirement for higher levels of precision develop, the SABER M700 Precision Rifle grows with them! This is a feature unique to APO’s SABER rifle chassis system now incorporating the most popular commercial bolt action rifle on the planet: the Remington Model 700.
Initial releases of the SABER M700 Precision rifles feature the highly accurate Remington Model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD barreled action, X-Mark Pro trigger, factory set to 3 ½ lbs and are chambered in versatile .308 Win and increasingly popular 6.5 Creedmoor. The barrels are hammer forged, with the .308 using a 20 inch 1:10 twist barrel and the 6.5 Creedmoor using 22 inch 1:8 twist barrel offering customers a wide selection of target and hunting ammunition. Both models have 5/8-24 threaded muzzles with protective caps ready for a muzzle brake or sound suppressor which are also growing in popularity.
Ashbury’s lightweight, low maintenance MRCS-AR modular rifle chassis needs NO epoxy bedding to provide exceptional accuracy in this precision engineered rifle platform. Ashbury’s AR-inspired MRCS-AR modular rifle chassis features a Magpul CTR shoulder stock and ¾ inch cheek riser making the use of rifle scopes easy. The shoulder stock is mounted on a six position, Mil-Spec carbine buffer tube, making it both telescoping and foldable with a double locking hinge. The comfortable AR-08 octagonal aluminum hand guard features Magpul’s M-LOK accessory attachment system and a convenient forward mounted bipod stud.
