    The Remington Model 7400 is a series of semi-automatic rifles manufactured by Remington Arms. The Model 7400 was a replacement of the Model 740 rifle which Remington produced from 1952 to 1981.[1] The 7400 model was ultimately replaced by the Model 750 in 2006.[1]

    HistoryEdit

    The Model 7400 was introduced in 1981 and was basically the same as the Model Four. Major differences included an checkered pistol-grip and straight comb stock. Initially only offered with a 22 in (56 cm) barrel, in 1988 an 18 in (46 cm) version was introduced.[3]

    VariantsEdit

    Model 7400 Carbine
    Manufactured from 1988 to 2004, the carbine version featured a shortened 18 in (46 cm) barrel.[1][3]
    Model 7400 Special Purpose
    Introduced in 1993, the special purpose model featured a non-reflective finish and sling swivels. The SP model was discontinued a year later in December of 94.[3]
    Model 7400 Synthetic
    Introduced in 1998, the synthetic model features a fiberglass reinforced stock and a non-reflective finish. It is available in both the standard and carbine length.
