I believe the rifle De Niro used in the film is a Remington 700BDL. During the 1970s, Remington offered the left-hand version in .30'06, .270, and possibly 7mm Remington magnum.



Interestingly, Internet Movie Firearms Database is in error on this particular, calling the rifle a Winchester Model 70.



Even a comparison of the De Niro images with the IMFDB generic illustration of the Model 70 alone shows the differences in the two.


The rifle used by De Niro shows the stock with a Monte Carlo cheekpiece and dark foreend tip and pistol grip cap. It also has the distinctive rear iron sight installed on the then-current Remington 700s.

Also, De Niro's rifle does not show the trademark Model 70 rotating safety.

Hope this provides some of what you wanted.
