Variants[edit]

There are a number of variants of the Model 7600 which Remington has manufactured over the years.

Model 7600

Model 7600P Patrol Rifle[5]
Introduced in 2002, the Model 7600P Patrol Rifle in .308 Win featuring an advanced sight system. Answering the call for a low profile, user-friendly patrol rifle, Remington now offers this durable, pump action rifle for standard duty use.[6] It features a black synthetic stock with sling studs and Wilson Combat ghost-ring rear sights.[3]
