Can you be more specific? Pretty sure answer is no, but they made two commemerative M40 rifles in 308W. (M24 is a long action rifle btw).
Talking to a guy via telcon...says he has a Remington 700 clone of the USMC rifle in .223 with 24" heavy bbl. I have not seen the gun yet (Sunday meetup) but I'm no expert on the mil clones so I thought I would ask here. It probably is just a varmint special or some such, but as I say, I don't know them enough to say...hence my question.Two M40 Comm rifles? Huh?
Well, per the former Remington Defense Sales Manager who put the actual order into the Remington system, the total Chuck Mawhinney commemorative M40s was 125 completed rifles. Just like the SSA rifles, they were all made at Remington (but with a special "CBM8541" stamp that Remington did for that commemorative). Remington did the clip slotting, barrel install, stock install (that apparently used the original subcontractor), matte finish, and delivered completed rifles. I heard that GA Precision subsequently did the nice bedding job, but rest assured other than glass-bedding, they were made at Remington, and they were based off the 1969 M40 blue-prints (with the round safety, etc). Here's how Remington marked them (clip-slotting with thumb relief is also seen):I suspect Random Guy may be thinking of the Chuck Mawhinney rifles, but those are a custom build for CM and I dont consider them to be a Remington offering as they were built by a third party for CM.
Funny you should mention an AccuRange: I have one on a .220 Swift - been there literally for decades. Didn't know it was all that pricey these days.Believe it's a Redfield Accurange. I'm more of an A1 guy so I put a Weaver T-10 on my version. Won't work in your case. From what I've seen of those scopes they get pricey if you can find one. They do/did make repros but I'd just save my bennies for a real Redfield.
