700 vtr? triangular barrel

I seen the new 700 sps varmint with the triangular barrel and muzzle break yesterday at my local gun store. The funny thing is there is no literature on remingtons website about the gun. Has anybody here seen one or heard about this gun? It was chambered in .223 and has the same stock as the sps varmint only green.

I know it sounds stupid but it's pretty common to see new products long before they appear on company websites.

I wish I could see a picture of the triangular barrel rifles.

I'm intrigued.

Are you sure that its not the XCR Tactical?
This rifle comes in 223 Rem, 308 and 300 Win and has a green stock and the triangular fluted barrel.

I bought a magazine yesterday called Remington Buyers Guide. It shows a Model 700 vtr Varmint Target Rifle in the new products for 2008 section. It has a 22" triangular barrel with integral muzzlebrake. It looks to be only available in 223 and 308. The stock looks like a sps varmint stock, but is green.

The barrel heating issues sound interesting, someone buy it and try it out. Not me, I think it's gross looking.
