Using a short-action Remington 700 system, the CP is billed as an accurate and compact handgun for long-range shooting and hunting applications.
Announced last November, the new bolt-action pistol is offered in .300 Blackout, .223 Remington and .308 Winchester with a length under 21.75-inches overall in its largest format. Using 10.5-inch barrels in its .300 AAC and .223 chamberings, the pistol runs a 12.5-inch barrel in the .308 version.
The CP comes standard with an M-LOK handguard, threaded muzzle, and a full top Picatinny rail for optics and/or back-up irons. Using a Magpul MIAD pistol grip and Remington’s X-Mark adjustable (3.5 to 5.5-pound) trigger system, the mag well accepts 10-round Accuracy International AICS-spec magazine system detachables. Due to its size, the handgun is a Form 1 away from being a fire-breathing SBR when equipped with a stock.
There is a rear single-point quick-detach sling point, useful as the pistol weighs around 6-pounds without optics. Finish is hard coat anodized and black Cerakote while an example with a blue tactical camo pattern was on hand for
