Stop me before I buy a new Remington

I have to admit to owning a number of 20th Century Remington bolt guns to include an M1917, a Model 30 (the commercial 1920s version of the M1917 with better fit and finish), a few early 700s including a walnut-stocked BDL and a Sendero, et. al.

But I haven’t bought one made in the past couple decades.

However, I ran across this in Dallas last week:

It’s the Model Seven Threaded, a .308 Win or .300 BLK chambered bolt-action that weighs just 5.5-pounds and is carbine length with a shortened stock and 16.5-inch barrel.


That Kuiu Vias scheme…


Now that would really be something for swamp deer (or the increasing infestation of feral hogs) in the dense underbrush of the Pearl and Pascagoula river systems that I like to call home– and when coupled with a nice .300 subsonic and a decent .30 caliber can (I was taken by OSS Suppressors new HX QD 762 Ti series at the ASA Shoot), I could see it as a very quiet little rifle that is still good out to 600 yards or so.

Let me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.

    This is a gun that has also really intrigued me, but there is little to no information online (at least I haven’t been able to find any) about it. If you now own one of these any feedback you can give would be much appreciated
