Remington 710 help

I have a remington 710 in 30-06. I cant find anything online for this gun as far as stocks, triggers, and barrels.

I would like to get a new stock and barrel, and have the action squared and piller bedded. could anyone tell me if this is even possable and how much money i might have to spend to do it!

Re: Remington 710 help

I'm not completely certain but I think the 710 barrels are pressed to the action instead of being threaded to it. I think that might make barrel changes and other work more problematic. If you post this question in the gunsmith section I'm sure you'll get a definitive reply though.

Re: Remington 710 help

I am pretty sure Jmason is correct, which is too bad.

On the bright side of things, you don't have much invested into the rifle to begin with. If you are looking for a better shooting rifle you could easily recoup much of your money by selling the 710 as is and getting a different rifle. The 700 is a vary popular rifle to update as well is the savage or stevens.

Good luck, Mark.

hey, don't feel bad, people have lost much more than that in the past. My Dad and Sister both have 710's and I know for sure that my dad's shoots pretty good. I would guess about 1 - 1.5 MOA with factory ammo.

Re: Remington 710 help

You may want to rethink the Savage. I have one in 300 WSM and its a shooter.
I also have a couple of friends who own them also and they shoot good.
Just my .02
