THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
I was told this was a Remington 700P with a blank 24"barrel ordered from Remington and rifled with M24 Rifling. How can I measure/gauge this? To measure the barrel length is it from the end to the first ring on the barrel or where it meets the receiver? Thanks in advance and if anyone can tell me what the markings mean that would be great as well. The one by the serial number looks like PF and on the other side it has a triangle with a possible U or I in the center and then the letters REP circled with what appears to be a 0 after it.

The markings mean it's a factory Remington barrel (as opposed to an aftermarket). There is also a date code in there somewhere, but I can't read yours.

The barrel length is measured from the crown (tip) to the breech face. The easiest way to do this is to measure from the tip to the hole in the right side of the action.

Thanks, It is a 26" barrel and on the inside of the triangle it is a U so it would appear to be a 2000 stamped barrel. Can I be safe to call this a 700P model?

It sure does look like it. And the REP is a proof mark saying it has survived the test shots.

Thank You all for the replies. GRMGR1 how do you like it? This one has an extremely light trigger. It was set at 1.5lbs. I am looking forward to taking it out. The range close by goes out to 800 yards so I should be thoroughly challenged. Thanks again.

Yes. The stock and finish on the barrel/receiver are a dead giveaway. It will not have the M24 5R rifling. Though it is possible someone installed a 5R barrel on the action then sent it back to Remington to be refinished in their "non-reflective" finish, it is highly unlikely.

edit: And your bipod is on backwards.
