More info.

"Remington Model 700 sniper rifle awarded to Marine marksman John W. Johnson for winning the National Trophy Individual Match at Camp Perry, Ohio, in 1981. The presentation rifle (serial no. 6257207) bears all the characteristics of a USMC sniping rilfe dating from 1969. At least three other Remington M700/M40 rifles were awarded under similar circumstances - in 1979, 1980 and 1981."

"As a matter of interest, the other M700 sniper rifle presented in 1981 (serial no. 6257276) was also awarded to a member of the USMC rifle team."
