Can this be worked up and maybe made into a great shooter??
And what will it cost to make it such a shooter???

Thanks

Ditto on what my Buddies "7STW" and "ButterBean" said.

I would check-out the Sako M995 TRG-S 7mm STW that bobs is selling.

Now that's comparying a Yugo to a Ferrari!

I knew these were indeed the bottom of what Remington produces but I'd not heard the quality issues were so severe.

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

marioq,

I like Remingtons, Not the new ones, but the older ones when Quality Control wasn't a big issue. When I go about building a new one, I always cruise the Pawn Shops and gun and find a Diamond in the rough. I've found several early 1970's vintage rifles that were in great shape, but showed the signs of being carried and not fired much at all. I even found one that didn't have swivel studs, That one looks brand new but was built in 71.

What I'm getting at is that there are a lot of older Remys that are out there because people are dumping them to buy the "latest and greatest new thing" for people like me they are what I look for to build off of. Most of them are .30-06s ad I do find 7mm Rem mags. Look for one of those... (a BDL if possible)

Remington has ony the 2 action lengths. A 7stw will fit into the mag of a 7mm Rem Mag and will feed perfectly. I would suggest a new barrel in a medium to heavy contour at least 26" with a 1-9" twist , install a Timney or Jewel trigger (or a complete trigger Job) and a New stock. Have the smith clean up the action while he's at it.

I can't bring myself to buy the new stuff when the older stuff is much better anyway..

Those Sakos are Sweet rifles! If you can.... buy one of those. That Rifle of bobs .... Well let's say that I'd buy it if I had the funds.....

Dan

Wild Rose, this latest production run of those SPS's are junk dude. I think they used a chainsaw file to lap the barrels!!!! If you run a patch through one, it will come out shredded.
I have been a Remington man the majority of my life, but I'll not buy another NEW one. I'll buy used and older ones, that I can figure out when they were made though!!
Check out the Remington Quality thread, in this section, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

Just wanted to send out a message to all the "Brothers" and wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS, and a wonderful NEW YEAR. There are some lasting friendships here, that will survive this thread for sure. For most here, it has been a good year, but for us all, it has ended in a bad way. BLESS all of those folks, and the children!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE, FROM ME AND MINE..
7STW and Family.
