Get Stillers, I have the predator action on my stw and I bought Stillers, make sure to get the one with the correct screw size.

Anyone know what stock will work with a huskavarna imperial 7mm???

Thanks. One more step toward the brothahood!!!

I hear he does excellent gunsmithing.

Here's a thread that he posted on twin 300 wbys that he built out.

Yep,

I've certainly been there. That looks like a good plan and the way to go step by step to get a gun you want. that's how I've done 3 rifles, and finally ended up with what I like.

Who says you have to build a rifle all at once????

Dan

Yes that is the guy!!! He has the barrel I bought. So I figured since he has a good rep here on the sight, hope it works. Gotta be better than getting screwed by Chris Mathews 2 years ago for 2 K!!!!!

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

Hello
I have a Remington Model 700 bdl in 7mm mag. Made in the 70's. Wood stock with the hinged floor plate. It will not shoot good groups any more. Was thinking about reaming it to 7stw, new 26-28" barrel, jewell trigger, and do everything i need to to make it a shooter. Can i keep the same stock? With out it being a single shot? will the bullets fit in the magazine? It was my daddys gun and really wanted to keep it looking the same except longer barrel.

Sorry if this has been answered. Thanks for any advise.

Precision stock works in New Braunfels Texas. I'm going to be restocking four or five of my rigs with their stocks over the next year or so.

I'd start with the barrel and trigger; that should suffice unless the wood has softened like the wood on my bdl did. Then you'll need to either pillar bed it or replace the stock. The mag-well on a remmy will do just a bit over 3.600"(around 3.650" usually) so the 7stw will fit just fine.

If the original barrel isn't THAT bad you may just be able to have it reamed and re-stamped. That would be for you and a gun-smith to discuss though as it'll cost enough to play with the original barrel it may not be worth it.
