Re: Improving my rem 700

All good replies, the last thing I would do is replace the bolt. I have had several 700's built for me and all retain the original bolt.

    I thought more on this. The only thing I'd even consider doing to the bolt is perhaps a tactical bolt knob and upgraded firing pin and spring; perhaps upgrade to the M-16 extractor as well but anything else would simply be about making it look cooler, not function better.

    There can be an argument made for fluting the bolts though because they better disperse sand/dust and are less likely to freeze up the action in cold weather. That'd be last on my list of upgrades though.
