remington etronx There are a number of subcomponents in each Remington primer that were constructed with incredibly precise tolerances. The cup dimensions are regulated to.0001, and the priming mix is properly produced for dependable ignition with a broad variety of powder kinds. Primers are tested for dependability in a range of Fahrenheit temperatures, from -20 to +150. The unique tripod anvil design delivers a larger strike area with optimal sensitivity, even with off-center firing pin hits. Etronix primers are only compatible with Remington model 700 Etronix rifles.

Electronic Ignition System: Rather of a conventional firing pin, the EtronX used an electronic ignition system. When the cartridge was chambered and the bolt was closed, a metal electrode that was spring-loaded and ceramic-insulated made contact with the primer. A 9-volt battery kept inside the buttstock supplied electricity to this electrode
Simple Safety system: The EtronX’s safety system consisted of a two-position switch. The battery’s electrical circuit was broken when the gun was in the “Safe” position, preventing the rifle from firing. When the trigger was pulled, the circuit was complete and electricity could flow, igniting the primer  after switching the switch to the “Fire” position.
