This is a classic Remington 700P from the late 1990’s or early 2000’s that was traded in by a police department for a new rifle package from us here at Sniper Central. The rifle is chambered in 308 and has the Remington pinch style DBM setup that they used on their 700Ps for a period of time. As you can see from the pictures, the rifle was painted by the department during its life of duty and while it has clearly been used, it does not appear to be abused at all. The bolt shows wear, but less than we expected and while we do not have a round count on the rifle, we would estimate about 2000-3000 rounds have been fired. The rifle comes with the Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x40mm scope that was mounted while it was on duty with the PD. The rings are a cheaper quality ring. The scope has the duplex reticle with Leupold tall target knobs with dust covers. The scope is clear and bright and perfectly functional. The rifle is currently in the same condition as it was when traded in to us and is a good example of one of the many 700Ps used across the United States for law enforcement work.

I bought a similar one these locally. A department couldn’t get funding for new optics, but they could for a rifle. So it was ordered; never left the shop, and they left with new optics. I got a good deal on a brand new/used DBM.


Duplex reticle? Is it a joke? Who need that? I simply refuse to believe that US PD can opt for a duplex reticle scopes! Who in bright mind, even in 1990’s, not even mention early 2000’s, can use duplex?
Better to sell this 700 without scope at all..


Please be cautious when replying without firsthand knowledge. The average sniper engagement for a Law Enforcement sniper is 81 yards according to FBI statistics. Rarely does a LE sniper shoot beyond 150 yards. What is the advantage of having a high speed Horus, MOA, Mil Hash, MRAD Christmas Tree, WizzBang reticle if 99% of the shooting is done from 75-125 yards? Yes, a VAST majority of the law enforcment sniper rifles in the 80s, 90s, and 2000’s used a duplex reticle. It has only been in the past decade that the hype of fancy reticles has caused the manufacturers to push them and the departments to adopt. As a point of reference. We currently have 5 trade in rifles from departments across the USA in our shop, all were active service rifles by SWAT and Sniper Teams, all of them are Remington 700Ps with Leupold scopes with Duplex reticles. Every one of them.


Understood. But, Mel, anyway, isn’t it would be better with some kind of simple BDC reticle?
Duplex reminds me my grandpa’s old, rifle (and old scope) which I hated, cause I didn’t understand how to compensate on distance at all with that “cross”.


Just because you have difficulty utilizing a particular system does not make it indicative of the system or of other shooters apart from yourself.

It’s easier than you think. I can hit deer-boiler-room-sized targets at 1,000 yards with a Leupold VX-1 duplex-reticle-equipped rifle. The old saying, “it ain’t the arrow, it’s the Indian” really does ring true. No, I’m no gifted shooter by any means; it’s simply a matter of practice. You can learn it.

Duplex reticles remain popular today for one very good reason: they work. Remember that most rifles have a point-blank range of about 250 yards, so at LE marksman ranges, duplex makes a lot of sense. I sure wouldn’t want to be on the business end of a police sniper with a duplex reticle! 🙂

As far as the barrel goes . How much wear does it have as well as life left in it? I’m interested in it. Do you have others as well?
