Remington Model 7600 Weathermaster ?

Did Remington make a pump action rifle (model 7600) in a stainless finish that was called the weathermaster. Do they still make it? A friend of mine told me that he saw two of them just recently in the .308 caliber. I looked at Remingtons web site and didn't see one listed and thought he might have been drinking some bad whiskey when he told me that.

yes they did but i think they were made for a distributor in one of those limited runs, My cousin lives in Penn, and they are not allowed autoloading rifles for hunting and he says 7600's are popular there, I saw several at a shop near harrisburg PA several years ago that were a nickel/stainless combo. I did not knowthe name of the package, but they were 7600's.

Remington Weathermasters

Hello,

Remington made the 7400 and 7600 in Weathermaster (nickel plated, synthetic stock). To my knowledge they were only available chambered in 30-06. I have a 7400 Weathermaster and my brother-in-law has the 7600 Weathermaster. They've been discontinued.

Hope that helps,

Regards,

Shaun.

Shaun,

I have just recently (after Christmas) looked at two of those rifles in the 308 caliber at Gander Mountain. They can't tell me much about them as far as the production of them. I almost bought one but I am trying to hold out for an 06. I talked to a Bass Pro Shops on 1-5-06 and the guy there told me that they had the Weathermaster in .270 and .06 bfore Christmas but had sold out. Bass Pro said that they should be getting some more. I will wait and see what happens. Money is tight right now anyway.
