    Mod 700 ADL Or Mod 700 SPS?

    I am looking at a M700, caliber 7MM Rem Mag rifle. The rifle has a black synthetic stock, a dark matte finished barrel and receiver, and a blind magazine. The serial number begins with the letter "E" which I interpret as being manufactured in 1984. I need help with identifying this rifle.

    Do I have the correct manufacture date?

    Is this rifle likely an ADL or an SPS?

    I have heard that Remington came out with the SPS designation to replace the ADL in their 700 line up... Is that true and if so when did Remington introduce the SPS? How can an ADL be distinguished for the SPS (for example., markings, serial number, or other characteristics)?

    I am new to this site and I appreciate the opportunity to access your forum for help.

    adls have blind magazines sps has hinged floorplates. adls have same bolts barrels actions as all 700s and about half price of sps remington still makes adls for big stores like academy and dont really advertise them or list them on their website.

    The only distinguishing feature between the two current models is the SPS has a hinged floorplate, while the ADL has a blind magazine. Although Remington states the SPS has replaced the ADL, they must still produce runs for the large chain stores. You can find them at very reasonable prices through Dick's, Academy, Cabela's, and Walmart. I purchased a 7mm Mag ADL last fall from Walmart.


    The "E" designation also applies to 2010 as year of manufacture on the barrel code.
