Louie, just curious what drove your trigger guard swap. I'm not up to speed on the model 700 variants.

The only mid I have made to my 700 was to remove the adl trigger guard and install a trigger guard off a bdl la 700. I had to remove some wood, but all the metal fit perfectly. Another mod was to convert the safety, to allow the bolt to be opened, while locking the trigger. Found out about this mod in an article in Guns n Ammo magazine. Now I can unload the rifle without having to disengage the trigger safety. Last mod was to remove both front and rear sights, plug the holes  then install a 3x9 Bushnell scope on it. At the time, Bushnell only had 3 grades of scopes. Mine was the lowest grade.  Rifle wasn't legal to deer with it in my area, but I could shoot paper with it. Almost 40 yrs later, still not legal for deer in my area.

didn't anyone else hear they are getting out of 'blood sport' products? the anti's got to them

i would not support any of their products

I heard it too Yari.  I also heard that flir was discontinuing there hunting thermal optics because they think that only military and law enforcement need them and that the hunting industry is bad.

another company biting the hand that feeds them.

here is my question: with the libs claiming global warming, why are there still snowflakes.  @--0--0117 @--0--0117maybe they will all go away @--0--0131 @--0--0131 @--0--0131

Firearms / Remington 700 Modifications.....
« Last post by BoBallistic on Today at 01:22:49 PM »
It all started out when I was at the old River Bend Gun Club in Atlanta in 1978....got married for the first time, move to Norcross, GA (frist of three houses in Norcross that we live in) and then joined River Bend Gun Club all in the same year! After having some SWAT guys from another county stopped and did some mandatory practicing to keep their skills sharp and was there on a late lunch and talking with the Range Master when these two guys showed up in the suits, sun glasses, small hubcaps and short antenna on their car. After they set up their human silhouette targets, the Range Master said out loud "wonder what kind of hunting they do"......well anyway we wondered down to where these guys were shooting and they were shooting really good groups both had glossy Remington 700 Varmint BDL, both in 308's and both had Leupold VX2 6-18X scopes on the rifles....

So a few months later found myself on a plane to Baton Rouge every week for the next 14 months, putting away $100 a week for my first 308, A Remington 700 Varmint BDL.....after a month had $400 saved up so I went to Dave's Gun Room in Norcross, GA I told Dave and Mary to ordered me my first 308! so another week past bought me a Leupold VX2 3-9X glossy scope....and finally had time to take it to the range. Bought me a box of Federal Preimum 165 gn factory ammo and shot it up (Saved the brass of course)

Then after a few years had saved enough money to buy me a cheap fiberglass stock for it....well a few years after buying the cheap fiberglass stock was in North Florida and dropped it out the tree, had my trusty back up that I used....when I got back to civilization went ahead and ordered a good expensive fiberglass stock....that is the way it is today....except....purchased a Shilen Trigger for both as well....adjusted down to 2.5 lbs.....where it stays it today....

About 10 years ago, went out and got a Badger Ordinance Magwell for it. By this time, had two of the Remington 700 BDL one in 308 and the other one is in 7mm08. Did the same mods on the 7mm08 as I did on the 308....those were my first twins. The Badger Ordinance only holds 3 rounds in it......have one extra magazine between the two rifles....

Now, to finish up this post, about 6 months ago, put a Magpul Magwell in both rifles. The latest mods started about 6 months ago when I was visiting Bud's Gun Shop in Sevierville and saw a Magpul Magwell Kit and thought that it would look good on my 7mm08.....so I bought it and installed it a few days later....it look so good I went out to Buds and bought another one and installed it on my 308....so it looks good now and can use either a 5 shot or 10 shot magazines in it....

The Remington 700 has been though a lot of modifications...and wonder what the next one is ??.......

Thought I would share this with you......Bo

Nikon themselves haven't made any public statements, leaving everyone to speculate.  Wouldn't surprise me if they caved in to the snowflakes, but that crowd isn't likely to be satisfied until Nikon publicly acknowledges why they did it, if that was the reason.  Those people may be the ones spreading the "bloodsports" reason for that matter.
