O Ok you have an SPS DM. Sorry don't know if they are the same clip.

I'm sure some one will chime in.

I am not sure if the older Model 700 BDL's had the same style of clip that was in the Model 7400 or what the new 7600 clip looks like or if it looks like the way the new BDL clip looks like.

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
Current 700's all use the same detatchable magazine. Remington 700's with detatchable mags from the factory can not be changed to BDL style. The feed rails have been removed. Feed is controlled by the lips on the detatchable mag. A 700 makes very good choice for a custom, many choices in aftermarket parts/modifications.

shortgrass
thanks for the info

so I guess I bought the wrong gun for what i want to do!

There is no way of making the sps Dm, into a regular 700 floorplate action then??

that sucks!

anyone want to buy a sps's DM in .243??? only 15 rounds through it??

Re: remington SPS 700's ???

You know you don't have to sell it just cause it has a detachable mag. True having the floorplate is more simpler to have, but just cause it doesn't, does not mean that is any reason to sell it. It is still a Remington 700 and like all 700's that is not going to change, so it has some different cosmetic features, so what. I am guessing you are probably wanting to get into competition shooting, well you know, hey you can only have one round in your rifle at a time so if you can open the bolt, put a round in and close the bolt and shoot what does it make a difference if it has the floorplate or the mag.

This is just my opinion.

Re: remington SPS 700's ???

thanks, But I am not looking to get into compitition shooting, have guns for that.

I bought this gun due to a deal I got, and just planned to shoot off some extra .243 ammo i have laying about, and then using the action for a build I have in mind. I have one rifle, I want to make a copy of!

thus the reason I want to use a floor plate on it, and not the clip

when I bought it, the deal was RIGHt now, so I didn';t have time to findout firat if i could swap the clip for bottom metal floot plate.

I did shoot the gun, 15 rouinds just to kill some time I had, and it shoots ok , but not very well when barrel gets a little hot(saw 6 rnds) its a thin barrel on it from factory!
guessing thats part of it, and this is on a Brand new barrel, so might get better after shooting some more.

but I am willing to let it go if I get a decient offer,
maybe a swap of something for it!

I really don't need just another factory rifle, as its nothing special to me. an impulse buy of sorts
i am not looking to give it away, buy will deal! any takers??
Offers??
