Hey "mueller", I can guarantee you that if you get lucky and get a Remington 40X, you will not be disappointed. I got a 40XB heavy barreled model from the CMP last year. The Remington 40XB is the later model of the 40X that has a receiver and bolt that looks like the Remington model 700 short action. It is without question the most accurate bench rest .22 cal. target rifle that I have ever fired. I also have a Winchester model 52D heavy barrel. I though it was accurate until I got the Remington. My Remington 40XB puts my Winchester to shame. Good luck in your quest.

The 40XB was built on the Remington 700 action. The original 40X was built on the 722. Most obvious differences- 40X has a straight bolt handle (round plain knob) and a stamped steel trigger guard, while the 40XB has a swept back bolt handle (flattened checkered knob) and a cast alloy trigger guard.
Collect them all!

PS- A little perspective on price- My USMC 40X is worth about $1800, my 40XB HB around $1500. That's N.E.OH market. Don't worry about wives or dollars just do your very best to get a 40X.
40Xs will get you through times of no wives/money better than wives/money will get you through times of no 40Xs.
A bit more perspective, a brand new rimfire 40X starts at $3500. I'm telling you, go camp out at the South until you have one in your hands. My USMC 40X will be the last rifle I part with. Fact, I believe I'll have it buried with me.

Would you mind disclosing exactly where your burial plot is located? Thanks!

I don't think you have to be that anal. I mean it takes me all of 15 minutes to do the CMP paperwork and you still have to take it to the post office. . . .

I encourage you and everyone else to do just this.

There has always been ample notice. (That is except for a unsuccessful trial of an estore release.) I have found that a Thursday eve or Friday morning snail mail gets my order there within the window. YMMV! The problem for me has been to not get antsy and send the order in too soon and have it get returned. Quite a few use overnight service on Friday with success for a Monday release date.
