The Remington Model 700 Special Purpose Synthetic Camo is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in multiple cartridges. The Model 700 was introduced in 1962 and since then Remington has expanded the design into over 30 sub-models including the SPS. The major difference between the SPS and the other sub-models is price. The SPS costs the least of any Model 700 because it uses a synthetic stock instead of its traditional wooden design.
Remington says the Model 700's action forms "three rings of steel," meaning it uses a push-feed action where the bolt pushes the round towards the chamber and the extractor does not grab the rim of the cartridge until the bolt is completely forward and locked. It doesn't affect the smoothness of the action, but does cater to one's preference. Some prefer the push-feed action over a control-round feed action (which does the opposite). Also, according to Remington, the Model 700's receiver was milled from a single piece of steel, so it'll be more resistant to wear overtime than those not milled from a single piece of steel. A durable receiver is necessary especially when absorbing the force of the initial explosion that sets off heavier loads.
