The Remington Model 799 is a bolt action repeating hunting rifle made by Serbian Zastava and branded under Remington Arms. The action is based on a modified Mauser 98 action.[3] Before it was marketed by Remington Arms, a much more cheaper and generic version was sold by Charles Daly at a much cheaper price.
