Gonna follow this one too. I have the exact same rifle and caliber. Thinking it would be a cool rifle to build another 243 off of it.

The action is a shortened version of the 700 short action. It has the same mag length and capacity
as the standard short action.

The rear receiver ring and tang are about 1/2 shorter than the 700 short action and require a
mod 7 inletted stock.

The bolt is also shorter.

They take the same trigger as any 700 Remington and the XP basses can be substituted if it has
two screws on the rear of the receiver. (The first models had only one and required a one
piece base with three screws)

I have built many custom rifles on this action and It is very strong. well machined and makes
a great custom rifle.

My favorite cartriges for the Mod 7 are the 6.5 Rem Mag, 7/08 and any of the WSMs or SAUMs

The 7/08 is the easiest and require little or no changes to the 243 except the barrel and chamber.

Re: Model seven remington

I had a local friend, and professional gunsmith, build me a 1,000 yd .308 tack-driver out of a Remington 7 action. It was the most accurate gun I have ever had. It had an M24 barrel on it, trued-up, Jewel 2-stage trigger, custom HS Precision stock with an aluminum bed-block in it, floated barrel, glass-bedded action, it was insanely accurate. Then some jack-leg broke into my shop back in '08 (through 2 locked and dead-bolted doors...1 was a steel door) and stole it and I haven't seen it since. Makes me sick every time I think about it.

I will build another one someday.....I just have to have an action, and I can't seem to find another model 7, or 700 SA with a jeweled bolt for sale anywhere. Anyone got one they wouldn't mind selling for relatively cheap? Sorry, but money's been kinda tight for the last year or so since the economy plummeted.

I don't think I would want to tangle with this person you speak of... Two doors, one metal! I think I would just be bitter about the situation too. I always said, if somebody is brave enough, strong enough, and dumb enough to steal my gun safe, I don't want to meet him!

Re: Model seven remington

I'm not exactly what you'd call a small guy either. And it wasn't in a gun safe. It was sitting in a gun case from where I had cleaned out my back seat of my truck in a quick-pinch situation, and so it sat locked in my office, locked in my shop for a few weeks, where I forgot about it and figured it would be safe, since I had never had a break-in out there before. I was wrong. I'm still gonna smash his/their face(s) in if I ever find out. I really want another long-range .308, and my buddy has a Remington 700 5R, but now won't sell it to me even though we shook on a deal back during last summer when I didn't have the cash. Now that I have the cash, I'm not too happy.
