The Remington Model Four is a semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Remington Arms from 1981 to 1987. It features a gas-operated action with a gloss-finished walnut stock. Unlike most Remington rifles, the Model Four spells out the number and is marketed as the Model Four not the Model 4.[1]

Along with the Model 7400, the Model Four is essentially a redesign of the Model 742.[2] Some of the improvements include a smoother action and a stronger lockup.[3]

Variants[edit]

Model Four Collectors Edition
In 1982, 1500 Collectors Editions rifles were manufactured. This special model was chambered exclusively in .30-06 and featured an etched receiver, 24K gold inlays and a high-luster finish.[4]
