BDL Standard SA Triggerguard/Mag Kit : REMINGTON 700 ADL-TO-BDL KITS | Brownells

BUT..as you say its $150 smackers. I picked up one that didnt have the sheet metal box magazine...use and looked new for $29.00 once. Sorry to say not every time but a savings like that just once is enough to make one keep coming back.




For $69.00.....tough to pass up!

Yeah, but I had to have one, and couldn't find one anywhere... Of course, now that I don't need one anymore, and bought a new one, you will find them everywhere. I needed a stainless standard LA setup, and all I could find were magnum setups and SA setups.

I did not draw a tag this year! Two of my brothers killed this year. Hopefully I can smoke something with this next year.

I haven't made it to the range yet. I will update this post when I do. Still deciding on a load.

I got the bottom metal, spring, mag box and follower for a grand total of $15. I had bid on a few on eBay and looked at the new kits. I really didn't have any business buying anything right now so I was trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible.

My boy has his first cow elk hunt this weekend and then my brother and dad have some late bull tags. Between university, work, hunts I probably won't get to shoot it until first part of December.

Looks great. Man if bottom metal assemblies could talk. You'd get an earfull of stories of years of Alaskan and Arizona, Colorado adventures.

$15..wow...thats tough to take. Ive found that if I ship ahead of a build I can usually get what I need. Looking for an SST bottom metal assy at present but MAY change my mind to a black one and have the action and barrel Cerrocoated
