Remington Model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD

Remington will soon be selling the a variant of the Model 700 SPS Tactical that includes a 5/8-24 threaded muzzle. This will allow it to accept AAC and other 5/8-24 threaded flash hiders, brakes and suppressors. A thread protector is included with the rifle. Its MSRP is $757.

I have been very surprised that Remington has not been more active in marketing AAC suppressors to civilians.

    I commend them for finding the one scope in a hundred that doesn’t match the rifle’s finish AT ALL.

    What’s the effective range of a subsonic .308, anyway?

    • Burst, subsonic .308 won’t be very far. Most of the time they would use supersonic loads. The suppressor makes noise drop off much quicker, is easier on the ears at the range and reduced recoil.

  • The important thing about a suppressor with supersonic ammunition is that the sonic crack of the bullet flying past does not necessarily point back to the shooter. The suppressed muzzle blast also eliminates the possibility of using the old trick of estimating the distance of the shooter by timing the difference between hearing the crack of the bullet flying past against the latter arrival of the muzzle blast. (Remember that a supersonic bullet is flying faster than the speed of sound while the report of the rifle is only traveling at the speed of sound.)

    Is it advisable to shoot such a rifle without ear protection?
    I suspect this is intended not to disturb your neighbors more than protect your ears.
    Could also be for protecting your dog’s hearing when hunting.

    I am pro-suppressor though. It should be more common.

    I have been very surprised that Remington has not been more active in marketing AAC suppressors to civilians.

    Probably because of the difficulty involved in obtaining one. They’d end up with a lot of disappointed customers who got all excited about getting a suppressor and then learned that it takes six or so months and an extra $200 to jump through all the paperwork.

    I see. Thanks for the info.

    More like 3-4 months and the paperwork is one page, very simple.
