Caring For Your Remington 783 Rifle

Caring For Your Remington 783 Rifle

As America’s oldest firearm company, Remington has a strong reputation for creating and manufacturing guns that meet the wide range of needs within the firearm enthusiast community. Their bolt-action rifles have a long history of reliability and accuracy, becoming vital parts of any rifle-users collection. One rifle that holds a place of importance for many rifle users, the Remington 783, was launched in 2013 and is known for its functionality and accuracy. Though it is considered a budget rifle, it has the longevity that would appeal to many rifle owners. In order to extend the life of this excellent rifle for as long as possible, there are steps to take that will ensure your Remington 783 will work correctly and safely for many years to come.

Read the Manual

Your gun’s manual will provide key information about the gun that is important to know for the operator. In addition to advising the type of ammunition for your firearm, it will also tell you how to break down and clean your rifle. If you are a first-time owner of a Remington 783, thoroughly reading the manual can help you avoid costly damage from disassembling or reassembling your gun incorrectly. The manual can also guide your cleaning routine, ensuring proper parts and areas of the rifle are cleaned appropriately. Even if you bought your rifle without a manual, a copy of it can typically be found online.

Employ OEM Parts and Accessories

The Remington 783 is an incredibly reliable rifle with advanced design and manufacturing components. Each part of the firearm was designed to operate smoothly and result in a consistently accurate shot. This design allows for little room for error. For this reason, only OEM parts and accessories should be used with this rifle. An OEM Remington 783 magazine guarantees a tight fit between the rifle and the magazine. Firearm users that need to expand their magazine capabilities can do it with a 10-round Remington 783 magazine.

Keep It Secured

Safety should be any firearm user’s priority for any gun in their possession or within their home. One of the most important steps in guaranteeing safety is ensuring the rifle is unloaded whenever it is not in use. Unintentional or accidental gun discharges can cause severe injuries or even death, especially if children have access to the firearm. Once the gun has been cleared of ammunition, it needs to be stored in a safe and secure environment. A gun case or safe can keep dirt and other damaging agents from the firearm, such as water or items falling on the weapon. Gun cases and safes that lock can also keep away those that do not have permission to use the rifle.

Frequently Inspect the Rifle

Avid firearm users understand that a faulty weapon can cause serious bodily damage. It is important to frequently inspect your rifle to ensure it is in proper working order. All parts of the weapon should be regularly checked, including the barrel and stock. Checking your rifle before and after each use can help you identify any potential issues early, reducing the likelihood of an accident.

Use the Right Cleaning Tools

Cleaning a firearm is vital to maintain its performance and longevity. Debris build-up can affect not only the accuracy of your firearm but also how safe it is to operate your weapon. The extreme friction, heat, and high-speed movement in the barrel put the firearm under extreme pressure, making appropriate oils and fluids a critical part of your maintenance plan. Due to the importance of properly cleaning your firearm, there are many products designed for this specific purpose — WD-40 will not meet all your firearm’s needs. One of these oils to have on hand is CLP: cleaner, lubricant, and protectant. Other important supplies required to properly clean your rifle include a cleaning rod, cleaning brushes, gun cleaning patches, and a rust protector.

Hunting Rifle Magazines

Bolt-action rifles are known to be reliable and less susceptible to failure than other firearms, but ignoring these important steps of firearm maintenance can cause disastrous consequences. Each of these vital steps can be easily accomplished by the average firearm owner; however, there may be one area of difficulty. It can be difficult for gun manufacturers to supply enough OEM magazines to meet the demand, potentially pushing firearm owners to magazines that lack OEM certification. These sub-par magazines can negatively affect your experience with your Remington 783, as well as your shot quality.
