You have to bed about 3" pass recoil lug so it will support and free float its heavy barrel...

Re: model 700, SPS stock improvement

I have a 7mm mag with the factory plastic stock. It did not like bipods so I bedded the action with acraglass and epoxied in an aluminum bar in the forend, and really opened up the barrel channel. There is still a bit of flex there, but the forend does not touch the barrel. I have taken game out to 638 yds with the rifle like this.

Stu.

Model 700, SPS magazine improvement/conversion

I own a model 700 SPS bolt action Remington center fire rifle. I am wondering if the hinged floorplate can be removed and a removable magazine/clip be replaced in its stead? If anybody has any idea please let me know thank you.

I bought my 12 year old son an SPS Varmit in 308 Win, I put a HS Precision stock on it and it's first group with factory ammo shot 3/8" MOA. The factory stock is junk.

Re: model 700, SPS stock improvement

thanks for the input fellows, I did change stock to a Hogue overmolded, it had bedding pillars, stiffened it a bit and glass bedded. It shoots fine at 300 yds. , have not tried any further yet, but deer season is over and I will get back on it.

keep care
