Remington 783, a rifle, shotgun

Remington 783 (783 Remington) is a reliable utilitarian carbine every day

When creating the carbine is the Remington 783, the designers of the Remington Arms company (the manufacturer of model Versa Max, 1100, 11-87 Sportsman, 700 BDL, R-25, R11 RSASS) sought to obtain weapons not only available to the widest possible audience of shooters, but also with excellent technical capabilities that brings him to the piece instances.

Description of the Remington 783 rifle (Remington 783)

Carbine bolt-on, paddle, cantilever barrel and a removable store. Digit in the model index indicates the diameter of the bolt in thousandths of an inch.

Bed plastic, the outer sighting devices are not. It is a utilitarian weapon for those who want to shoot and hit the target, who is not very important details.

Advantages and disadvantages

  • The optimal ratio of price to quality. The arrow will not be offered any option that has no practical sense and serves only as an occasion for self-empowerment and increase their status.
  • The console of chrome-molybdenum steel barrel with rifling, obtained by donovania. A good internal ballistics backed up by a quality muzzle chamfer in the shape of a crown. As a result, the value of the MOA does not exceed one, that for relatively cheap weapons very well.
  • The receiver is closed, which better protects the gun from dirt in the receiver during the hunt. At the same time, the window to eject shell casings large enough to be able to charge through it. This design allows to install long Picatinny or Weaver rail and effectively rebuild from parallax when using optics.
  • Unfortunately, there is completely no external sights. Without a rear sight and front sight cannot be considered universal. Challenged and able to use it as a forwarding. Not everyone is a “magician in the blue helicopter”, which without delay are delivered to the taiga wilderness optical sight instead of the broken.
  • The bolt covered with Teflon. This eliminates the need for grease and ensures a smoother ride in the cold, heat, rain or dirt. Unfortunately, the coating is not too strong, it can oblasti completely for two or three seasons.
  • Detachable two-row store is a big plus for weapons. It slightly increases the weight, but greatly simplifies the recharging process.
  • In the trigger mechanism added an additional element – the lever-lock built into the trigger. It increases the safety of using the weapon, reducing the risk of arbitrary shot when accidentally pressed. The longer trigger travel allows inexperienced shooters to get used to tactile contact, to mentally prepare for the upcoming push of the recoil and make an accurate shot. But he can allow the game to go.
  • Trigger guard made of plastic that, from the point of view of tactile sensations, which is good, because touching the metal in the cold is best avoided. But every plastic part in the gun subjectively perceived as something unreliable and inappropriate. In addition, the shape of the bracket too angular. It is ugly and not practical, because any sharp corner is likely to catch, to hit, to injure themselves.
  • The plastic stock is very practical for everyday constant use. You can not worry about the awkward blows and falls. At the same time, it should be noted that the friction properties of this material at sub-zero temperatures are always lower than the classic wooden Lodge with a well-developed notch on the shank and the handle.
  • The bed has a built-in metal tyre, absorbing the impact and making it more rigid. Designers used only the aluminum sleeve with thread. This is the budget version of the damper that the majority of shooters are not recognized quite reliable.
  • Swivels for attachment of the belt is made in the form of tides on the bed. Of course, it is impossible to lose. But it is likely to break and finally be able to set the device for carrying on the shoulder.
  • Rectangular in cross section the fore-end is more suitable for shooting from close range, on its bottom face made socket with metal threaded bushing which carries the bipod. But in General, the ergonomics of the Lodge is good, it is quite pricedata, and the chunky, shock absorbing recoil pad is able to repay up to half of the recoil, so the weapon is in the hand of an experienced Ranger, and a green rookie
The manufacturer offers eight calibers are medium to Magnums and three choices of barrel length. Therefore, it is possible to choose the best weapon and arm, and by appointment.

The principle of operation

Before loading the rifle, put the safety on, which you check the backplate of the receiver slides back, before the advent of white dots. Store is extracted by pressing the latch from the front face of the bunker. He-is armed in the usual way – the cartridges in a staggered manner. Locks into place with a distinctive click. Loading a single cartridge through the window of ejector sleeves is only possible with an empty store.

When the safety shutter remains mobile, it can retract by lifting the handle. During the return of the stem into place and lowering handle is the platoon drummer. The shank of the firing pin does not extend beyond the body of the drummer, as it happens in models 700-series, but visually seen. If you remove the store and clean the chamber to seal the breech without cocking, so as not to bore the spring. To do this, press the trigger and hold until the shutter closes.

The trigger is a lever lock, without pressing on which he will not budge.
  • For feeding the cartridge into the chamber, lift the bolt handle and pull the stalk back until it stops. Then slowly, but vigorously, give it forward and lower the handle. Should be heard a “click” that accompanies the platoon drummer.
  • Turn off the fuse, sliding the box forward, click on the lock lever, trigger and align their faces, after which the trigger pull will increase due to overcome the spring resistance of the sear. When the sear ledge drops, tooth drummer released, the firing pin will move and make a capsule holder. The shooting would take place. At this moment the bolt handle slightly (2 mm) served up, which is normal.
  • The lock supplied is installed in a rented shop and the shutter is open, its loop is skipped in the window of ejector cartridges and carried through the bunker.

Reviews

The weapon comfortable to fire with all regulations and for shooters with average anatomical parameters. The accuracy of the battle fits into the unit of MOA, confidently striking targets at ranges up to 150 meters according to the principle of “saw – aimed and fell.”

The shutter works well in all conditions, dirt contemptuously indifferent. The impact is palpable, but, thanks to high-quality butt plate, it is easy to adapt.
