Have you seen the Remington Bicentennial edition firearms yet? Well, they're worth a look—take our word for it. And if you're looking to buy one, act fast. The editions are available new only through the end of this year. If that's not incentive enough, bear in mind that Remington has announced that it will pledge up to $50K—with a $10K minimum—to NRA-ILA based on sales of the "Limited Edition" models.

The “Limited Edition”—only 2,016 each—of engraved firearms, including Model 870 and Model 1100 shotguns, Model 700 and Model 7600 rifles and Model 1911 R1 pistols. The guns will include commemorative engraving featuring a 24-kt. gold depiction of founder Eliphalet Remington himself heading into the woods with his first barrel, special serial numbers, a medallion in the grip and special packaging. The long guns will have C-grade American walnut stocks with fleur de lis checkering.

If the Limited Edition models are a little more than your wallet can withstand, there are also stunning “Commemorative Edition” models, which feature matte finishes and are available in Model 870 shotgun, Model 700 ADL rifle and Model 1911 R1 pistol examples. 

In addition, Remington’s Custom Shop has created a very small number of exquisitely finished and embellished guns that are earmarked for fund-raising auctions, permanent display and for one lucky Remington collector. Four Custom Bicentennial Sets have been built, each consisting of a Model 700 Rifle, a Model 870 shotgun and a Model 1911 R1 pistol. These guns were hand-engraved by master craftsman Jesse Kaufman in bespoke ornate scrollwork enhanced with 24-kt. gold inlay and are stocked in exhibition-grade walnut. They were recently auctioned off.
