New Remington Express conversion

ARC Tuning’s new AR1 conversion of the Remington Express

Remington’s new Express break-barrel (review here) that comes into the UK via Sportsmarketing is the springer everyone’s talking about – not least because its £150 asking price includes a 4×32 scope! Now ARC Tuning has chosen the Remy as a chassis for their very special AR1 conversion – a tune-up that builds on the Express’ already impressive performance, returning a faster lock time and an easier-still cocking effort.

ARC fits a new, high-quality Endurance mainspring and a RAM-air piston seal – components engineered in the UK – and you can either have your existing Express converted to AR1 status for £95, or buy a ready-tuned AR1 model (complete with a Remington 4×32 scope) for £215.

Other options are also available – notably a brass set-back trigger, a carbined barrel (305mm) and the impressive AR1 silencer. More info from ARC on 07974 230 549.

    I am wondering if it would be worth putting a silencer on my remmington express as the local gun shop owner says not. I would like another opinion as if it would make a usefull difference then I would like to add 1 to my gun

    in reply to Aaron , question silencer or not .
    in the hunting field fitting a silencer does in-fact cut down rifle
    crack some what , mind you , you may find once the pellet has made contact with the rabbits skull/bone that noise may cause the other rabbits neat by to bolt for cover , on the other hand if you are shooting very close to a wood the silencer will play a big part in cutting out barrel crack / noise , remember a wooded area will magnify
    the taken shot , so a silencer is needed , also adding a bit of weight to a rifles barrel will help in holding the barrel on target and adding to produce better accuracy, hope this info helps .
