remington SPS 700's ???

Ok, I am no expert,
But does anyone know about the rem 700 SPS rifles.

are the clip systems the same as on the BDL ?CDL clips models.
I looked at a few , and to me they look different a tad!


and , I am thinking about buying one due to I want to get another 700 action, for a project..
what do you guys know about them, good /BAd
and last, can I change the clip on one to a regular bdl hinge floorplate, on a build on this action!

thanks

The CDL and the BDL will both have a BDL style hinged floorplate. I believe that these are really the only style of floorplate offered by Remington anymore unless you get a model 770 or a 700 SPS DM that both have a detachable magazine.

Re: remington SPS 700's ???

thanks for the imput,
but I am wondering if these SPS700's clips are the same as they used in the 700 bdls ( DM"S) that had clips!

I never owned a 700 with a clip before!

I bought a SPS today for the action more or less, would rather one that just had a floorplate.

Still looking for an answer,

anyone!!

Re: remington SPS 700's ???

I was going to do the same thing you are about to with a rem 700 sps 308 win.
But before I stripped it down to the action I threw a B&C A5 on it and could not help but to load for a few for it. At 100 it will shoot under half MOA all day and very often in the 3s and sometimes the 2s. So I just left it at that. I'm sure it was the rare lucky one but it impressed me. Although it does not clean up well takes lots of passes and one noticeable thing is accuracy really degrades after the first three shots even though it has a heavier contoured barrel, but those first three are gold. Also the stock just has a bedding block in it so something that really improved accuracy was to get action screws so tight you think thier gona strip or snap. probably not to good for the action threads or the stock but made a huge difference in accuracy and if I was smart i would just have it skim bedded.

The load is
43.8 gr of Varget
175 SMKs
OAL 2.787
Lapua brass
primer CCI-BR2

SD 3
ES 6

Re: remington SPS 700's ???

I wanted to get one in .308, but all they had on hand were .243's
took it out just to shoot it before i take it apart( have lots of .243 loaded)

and , my guns shoot 3/4 inch @ 100 yrds, for the first 3 shots out of a cold barrel!

after that, they all drift right, and open up past 3 inches.
wait till cold again, and first 3 will group again about under an inch, shoot 3 more, and again, open up, and drift right!

but its a donor action, so, not really worried.

anyone know about the clip issue??
is it the same clips set up they had on 700 D,'s of past?

can I change it to just a floorplate if i want to?? when I build!

If you have the SPS model it should have a hinged floor plate on it.

Looks like this Remington Trigger Guard Assembly Remington 700 BDL Short Action Aluminum Black - MidwayUSA


I would assume its the same as the BDLs
