Remington 700 Varmint ADL .308 conversion

I started out with a good deal on a Remington 700 Varmint ADL in .308. This has the heavy 26" barrel. I found a B&C stock that I really liked in BDL and started my search for the bottom metal, etc. to convert it over. I posted on here and a local AZ site for what I wanted. Michael, a member on both sites, sent me a message and hooked me up with some parts. I still need a scope, I'm thinking Vortex Viper. Also I ordered a Badger Ordnance Tactical Bolt Knob that I will be installing soon. Here are some before and after pictures so far.

    You have a great platform to start with. Reminds me a lot of a rifle I once had and steadily transformed...

    Looks 10x better already, with just the B&C stock.

    Looks like yours wears the 26" heavy barrel...That will come in great for gaining and retaining velocity and LR stability.

    Looks like you have a great platform to start out with.

    Just for the info....A person can almost always find BDL bottom metal for sale on eBay....sometimes just a floor place...some times the whole wad. I paid $65 for a whole bottom rig...metal mag insert...you name it was a take-off and had never been used

    Thanks guys for the nice comments. I'm not sure what this will turn into. I'm going to shoot it as is for a while. I've never done anything like this before. Usually I just "accurize" my stock rifles a bit then shoot the crap out of them. This is the first time I've upgraded a stock or anything. I'm excited and hopefully I can get out and shoot it soon.

    And if you can't find it on here or ebay....You can always buy it new from Brownells (like I had to do)...But there the whole ADL-to-BDL conversion kit is about $150 + shipping. But it's all brand new factory Remington parts.
