The Model 700 series of firearms are bolt-action hunting rifles manufactured by Remington Arms since 1962. All are based on the same centerfire bolt action. They come with a 3, 4 or 5-round internal magazine depending on caliber, which sometimes includes a floor-plate for quick-unloading, and sometimes is "blind," meaning it has no floor-plate. The Model 700 is available in a great number of different stock, barrel and caliber configurations. It is a development of the Remington 721 and 722 series of rifles, which had been introduced in 1948.
Julie Sims personally owned a Remington Model 700. She utilized it to pick off mounted officers of a mercenary army that intended to attackJena. The Remington's distance combined with Sims's deadly accuracy caused the mercenaries to panic. They even made random and inaccurate arquebus shots at their distant, unseen attacker.
She uses her rifle again during the pirate massacre and the Great London Escape.
