Firearms / Finding a build date for Remington 700
« Last post by Madgomer on May 11, 2019, 05:17:54 PM »
Bro in law just bought an old used Remington 700, a 7mm mag with stainless barrel.  Trying to help him figure out production year.  Serial number is 171XXX.  From some of the other barrel markings it is either March of 70 or December of 69.  Can't find anything that references the actual build timing based on serial numbers.  Anyone aware of whether that exists?

Firearms / Re: New to me a Savage Model 10 in 260 Remington

Today 78 days after I picked up the rifle, will start the assembly process on it, already put the picatinny rail on it (Nightforce from Midway) and now will finalize it with the installation and bore sighting of the Sig Sauer Scope.....This will be after about 4 hours of working in the gun room, then will look at one of the Kimber 308 Twins, one was perfectly fine with no surface rust and the other one has about 2" from the front of the barrel back with surface rust on it....will get out my steel wool and Rem Oil and set down and go over it while watching TV....then will mount the Sig-Sauer Scope on the Shilen-Savage model 10 in 260 Rem....

With the rain in the area here in East TN, should be an interesting morning.....time to get going.....

LOL - Yea, Yari know what you mean, if you remember "Dennis the Menace" cartoon strip that appeared back in the paper in the 70's, there was a toon that asked what if for dinner, and Dennis replied "Whatever mom has a coupon for"....LOL... ##$%#1119

Dutch - Thanks for the post....Yours K75 is very beautiful as well as very accurate....thanks for the post. You told me a long time ago, but what was the caliber that your K77 is ?? Did not know that one gunsmith builds it and the shoots it from start to finish...wow, learn something everyday....

This is the reason why I am sending back the 300WSM barrel, because it is not accurate. The hand loads and the factory loads both the 165 and the 180 grain are giving me 3 to 4" groups at 100 yards and the other two that I own, the 243 and the 280 are tack drivers, meaning one holders!!! So, there is something wrong somewhere.....

Now all I got to do is to put the barrel in a box and ship it back to them and see what they have to say.....probably cost me a bundle, but it might be worth it.......

Here is a link to what a $125K Blaser looks like, too deep for these shallow pockets, maybe Dutch or Yari or someone with deep pockets.....

Blaser's are by far some of the most precisely made firearms in the world. The older single shot ones were commissioned to one of Blaser's gunsmith artisans to build them from start to finish. By finish they would test fire and tune ammunition and gun to guarantee accuracy. I've attached a pic of the K77 engraving I owned for a few years.

I don't mind regulatory changes like that provided they're backed by science as opposed to someone's emotional "save the planet" agenda.
