Remington model 7600 pump-action rifle was introduced in 1981 and replaced in production the externally similar model 760. The model 7600 rifle is the fourth generation of the pump-action rifles, made by Remington Arms company in USA since the 1913 (the year Remington model 14 pump-action rifle was introduced). This rifle is quite popular as a hunting weapon in USA, and is available in four major medium-game calibers. In carbine version it also makes a great all-around weapon, and recently Remington has introduced a special "Police / Patrol carbine" version of the model 7600, which is compact and handy, yet packs some good accuracy and power thanks to its popular .308 / 7.62mm caliber. While the standard magazine capacity for Remington 7600 rifles and carbines is relatively low at only 4 rounds, aftermarket 10-round magazines are available for those who need more firepower. Another thing to consider is that these rifles are known for good accuracy and feature free-floating barrels.
Remington model 7600 rifle is a manually operated weapon which uses sliding forend to operate its action. Barrel is locked by rotary bolt with four radial lugs, and the bolt carrier is connected to the sliding forend by dual action bars. Feed is from detachable box magazines. Standard sights are of open type, with both rear (adjustable) and front sight blades being mounted on the barrel. The top of receiver is drilled and tapped for installation of various telescope sight mounts. Remington model 7600P 'Police' carbines are fitted with protected front sight and receiver-mounted adjustable rear sight of ghost-ring (diopter) type. Depending on the version of the gun, furniture can be made either from wood or synthetics.
