    BDL Varmint Special versus BDL Varmint

    Hello. I am new to this forum. I have been offered a Remington BDL Varmint chambered in .308 WIN with serial no. C6227262. I was hoping that I might be able to learn what the difference is between the "BDL Varmint" and a BDL Varmint Special. Also what was the date of manufacture of the above rifle please?

    There have been many variations of the "VARMINT" models. The things that they usually had in common was:
    Heavy Barrel
    Usually longer barrel length - at least 24" and usually 26"
    No Sights
    Post some pictures.

    I believe the Specials were Remington’s varmint rifle until sometime in the 90s. It has a 24” heavy barrel. The newer models are simply Varmint, carry a nomenclature similar to other 700s like VSSF ( Varmint Synthetic Stainless Fluted). Barrels are 26”.
