I am yet to fire this rifle as I just received it today, and am still waiting on glass. I will however leave a review based on my first impressions, fit, and finish.
The rifle comes in the standard "Remington" box, encased in Styrofoam, nothing special. It comes with all the basic manual, and the junk chamber lock. It also comes with the small allen key used to adjust the X-mark pro trigger.
The stock is very comfortable to hold, the Hogue butt pad is very soft as well, it seems like it will soften up the recoil sufficiently. It is supposed to be a full float system, but the stock has a decent amount of flex and touches the barrel with my Harris BRM bipod installed.
The trigger is very smooth, zero grit, and zero take up. it feels pretty light to me as well without being adjusted. I don't know what the actual pound rating is on mine, but it feels pretty good. I researched some aftermarket triggers, but I just don't see the need for it now.
The action is smooth when cycling and the bolt gets solid lock-up. The safety is smooth and in a great spot ergonomically.
There is little to say about the barrel, it is a bull barrel, but the rifle doesn't feel heavy in my hands, which is good since I still have to add 24 ounces of optic. I installed the JP standard compensator. I had issues finding the outer diameter of the barrel at the end where it would meet up with the brake, but I found one review that stated it was .860. My muzzle brake is .875 OD and fits almost perfectly, It is slightly larger than the barrel. Hopefully this will help some of you select a brake.
I am only giving this rifle 4/5 stars since the stock has that small amount of flex. I can modify the stock slightly to eliminate the touching on the barrel so it is not a huge deal to me.
