Remington 700 LTR

We transfered through a Remington 700 LTR rifle today.  If I was to have taken my XCR Compact Tactical Rifle, and sprayed it down with flat black Krylon, that’s just what it would have looked like… but without everything that makes the XCR so much better.
Granted the LTR is a bit less money… However you do not get the Trinite Coating that makes the XCR completely weather resistant. The LTR is just a cheap matte finish that didn’t look or feel very good. The polishing on the bolt and action makes the XCR so much smoother… and the LTR doesn’t have the X40 trigger system that is so much better than LTR’s trigger.  I’m not sure what trigger the LTR has in it… but it didn’t feel nearly as good as the XCR’s.  It couldn’t have been an X40.  For a couple hundred bucks more than the LTR, you could get the rifle that I think is so much better.  Somethings are worth splurging some extra cash for… seriously, get the XCR if that’s what you are in the market for.
