remington 700 abbreviations??

i see a lot of talk on this forum about the remington 700, i am going to be geeting one in the next few paychecks, now here is my question, what does ADL, BDL and CDL stand for?? and what does this mean in terms of what the gun has or doesnt have, the 700 that i will be ordering will be the heavey barrel version, i just dont know what the abbr. are for......


also any recomondations for optics? i was thinking of a leopold mark IV, but i dont know if there is anything else out there that would be better? or more bang for the buck????


sorry for the newbie questions...but then again i am a newbie...

I believe I read somewhere that the BDL stands for B grade deluxe and CDL is Classic Deluxe. Not sure on the ADL, a grade deluxe maybe but I thought the ADL was the cheaper version.

Originally, the ADL was A Grade Deluxe and the BDL was B Grade Deluxe (B Grade being fancier). The CDL designation does stand for Classic Deluxe. It's not necessarily better than the BDL...just different. Remington tried to offer something more classic and subdued than the old high gloss wood/metal found on the BDLs.

Tell us what you are looking to buy and we can tell you what Remington calls it.

Wood or synthetic?
Aluminum bed block or plain?
Stainless or Blued?
Heavy barrel, carbine, or tapered?
Caliber?
What are you going to use it for? Hunting, Targets, both? Small game or large?

Remington has named the same rifle with different accronyms for the sake of making it sound "cool", IMO.
They are all Rem 700's.
The only difference is what its made of and what its placed into.
The ADL is no longer manufactured. It has been replaced by the SPS. Special Purpose Synthetic.
Whats "Special"? Hype.
