Yes, I checked out their site as I have read good things about them from your posts on this forum and was disappointed to see they don't offer a lefty. I was actually intending to stay away from Varmint models as I'd rather have a slim barrel hunting rifle than a heavy pulp stick bench rifle, right now I have found the Rem cdl, Rem varmint sps, the Ruger in the classic wood stock, the Savage 12FLV which doesnt offer the accustock and is a heavy barrel, the Savage 16/116 FLHSS which is accustock and slim ss barrel. Right now I would be leaning toward the Rem or Ruger, how I don't have any experience with the Savage 16 and don't really want ss

To the OP, sorry about the hijack, kinda gettin off course here.

As a Marine Corps Scout Sniper of close to 8 years, I have been issued a remington 700. I can't tell you how much abuse my rifle took and no matter what, it never failed to operate. It goes through water, mud, sand, swamps and many conditions you will never put your rifle through. The people who have issues with remy rifles are also the people who modiy their rifle beyond the specs. Keep it clean and you'll never have a problem.

I'm a gunsmith and I handle new/old/custom rifles daily and have yet to see a problem w the new Remington's except the fact that the 770 is a true pos. ALL new line of rifles from the old companies like Remington, Winchester, and marlin have had good and bad happen to em but they are all back to awesome standards.......well except them damn 770's that is.
That is true about the trigger. The adjustment is the same as the xcr. However from every spec I read it hasn't Said anything about a floating barrell. And the factory riffle has a hogue stock and that's where the difference is between the xcr and sps. . It is my understanding that I can upgrade my stock when I can afford it and create a floating barrel.

The SPS is free floated. The the inside edges on the barrel channel is just flared out to the barrel

The action is trued, all the parts being smoothed, higher quality stock, better metals used, and more attention to details
