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.
