Installing a Tactical Knob on Remington 700

How hard is it to install a tactical knob on a Remington 700?
Can a person do it own there own if they have access to a machine shop, or do you recommend a gunsmith.

Feedback is much appreciated.
Thanks

To me it's well worth the $95 to have someone else do it.

Re: Installing a Tactical Knob on Remington 700

It depends on how familiar you are with machining. I used set them up in the mill and a boring head and turned the knob down, then threaded it with a die. I now have a fixture that holds them in the lathe and I single point thread the end. Much faster, easier and nicer looking than the mill but the fixture took some time to get right. I've seen a few guys who have use a bench grinder to grind the original knob down then ran a tap on it. The threads might not end up perfectly straight but it will work. But if you don't feel confident in doing it yourself give me a call I'd be glad to put a knob on for you.

Re: Installing a Tactical Knob on Remington 700

Thankyou to everyone for your fast and great feedback, I am going to buy the knob off of ebay and do it myself. I actually am going to have the machinist at my work do it, I have seen him do amazing things with metal, this should be a breeze for him.

Thanks again

Either will work just fine, alluminum is easier to shaper and is lighter though. If you duracoat the handle afterwards you'll never no the difference between the two other than weight.
