* Remington Model R-15™ Stainless Varminter in Realtree MAX-1 HD ® CAMO pattern
In 2008, Remington made history with the introduction of the Model R-15 VTR. This modular repeating rifle was derived with varmint and predator hunters in mind and was the first of its kind among the industry’s leading hunting firearms manufacturers. The R-15 VTR was an immediate success and has quickly established a new category of precision hunting rifles. New for 2009, Remington is excited to offer the Model R-15 VTR SS (Stainless Synthetic) Varmint rifle, chambered in 223 Remington; today’s most popular choice for varmint and predator hunting.
The Model R-15 VTR SS Varminter is designed for superior accuracy and performance. For starters, this R-15 is fitted with a unique patent pending, triangular contoured target-grade barrel with matching triangular gas block. This unique barrel design is a result of rigorous research and development that is focused on reducing weight, enhancing rigidity and promoting rapid heat dissipation. The 24-inch stainless steel barrel is free-floated within the machined aluminum fore-end tube and given a recessed hunting crown for the ultimate in shot-to-shot consistency.
To round out this distinctive package, the R-15 VTR Stainless Varminter sports a one of a kind, distinctive look with olive drab colored upper and lower receiver while the stock, fore-end and grip are covered in ultra-effective Realtree MAX-1 HD® camouflage.
