Model 7600P Patrol Rifle[6]
Introduced in 2002, the Model 7600P Patrol Rifle in .308 Win featuring an advanced sight system. Answering the call for a low profile, user-friendly patrol rifle, Remington now offers this durable, pump-action rifle for standard duty use.[6] It features a black synthetic stock with sling studs and Wilson Combat ghost-ring rear sights.[4]
Model 7615 Police Patrol Rifle[7]
The Model 7615P comes in .223 Remington caliber, uses standard M16/AR-15 style STANAG magazines and has a 16½" barrel. Just like the Model 7600P, the Model 7615P is designed to be a low-profile, user-friendly firearm for police officers to use alongside the Remington Model 870 shotgun.[7]
