Uses[edit | edit source]
The Remington 700P (Police version) is the basis for about 90% of all police sharpshooter rifles in the United States, and is also very popular with law enforcement agencies abroad and with citizen shooters and hunters. In the incident that led to the creation of the SWAT team, the University of Texas massacre, Charles Whitman used a Remington 700 to kill 13 of his 16 victims.
In show[edit | edit source]
In the show, the Remington 700 was put against GSG9's HK PSG1 sniper rifle. Although Remington 700 was able to hit the skull target in the left eye socket, the PSG1 was a millimeter more accurate (though it hit the target in the right eye socket instead), winning gaining the edge in the Long Range weapons for GSG-9.
