Weaver Tactical Multi-Slot Remington 700 L/A Base

Category : Scope Rings & Bases, Shooting Gear Review

New for 2008 Weaver announced that they would add a Remington 700 Long Action one piece scope base to their already existing Tactical Multi-slot base line up. The base is constructed of aluminum and is touted by Weaver to “withstand the most powerful recoil”.

Weaver R700 Tactical Base

So far our tests show the base to be sufficiently strong and well designed. The base fits our Remington 700 Long Action perfectly. While we wish the base was made of steel, we can’t complain about it holding up so far. As an added advantage the base weighs almost nothing, so if you are trying to keep your rifle from gaining weight too fast this is the base for you.

The base design seems to be well thought out and provides many options for mounting your scope. There doesn’t seem to be much difference between it and other bases that cost $50 more. The base is inletted on the bottom and over the ejection port to allow for easy access to your action and does not interfere with mounting your rings anywhere along the base.

The base includes 4 slotted screws for mounting and is available in matte black only.
The Remington Model 700 Long Action part No. is 48334.

This base is a screaming deal with an MSRP of $18.49.

Weaver also has the base available for the following actions:

Remington 700 SA
Ruger Mini 14
Mossberg 590
Ruger 10/22
Remington 597
Winchester 1300
Savage ACCU-SA
