I cant seem to find any place online with a Remington 700 5r in stock...anyone have some good places to look for these? From what I understand they only come from one distributor. What can one expect to pay for one?

Thanks, Brandon

I see them pop up regularly in the for sale forums both here and on snipershide. You will propably end up spending around $1000 for one. Snipercountrypx.com used to almost always have them in stock unfortunately not right now. The do have the .223 versions and the .300 win mag versions in stock.

My friend got his from Gunrunners in Duarte last year. When I do see them they are about $1050 new.

Recently bought mine from Snipercountrypx. Smooth transaction. Came out to approx $1025 shipped.

i thought they had to be special ordered or PPT in order to get ahold of one....aren't they a once a year production? or is that FUD?

I think Randall (ar15barrels) had one for sale. Don't know if it's sold though.

It was there as recently as last weekend, and was 1149 I believe.

Two guns stores local to SF both had at least one in stock. You can get them all over. Just search a lil more...
Also, i'd look into getting a SPS Varmint. The 5R costs almost twice as much as a SPS model depnding on where you buy it from... Money that could be spent on bottom-metal (detcahable mag) or even a better scope. Ask yourself if you really need that extra 0.75 twist gain or the stainless.... The stock on the 5R is an H-S model that wrks well enough, but not worth the initial investment as most people i know change the stock out after the first couple sessions...
