Custom Remington 700 12.7x48

Remington 700 chambered in 12.7x48 (same as 510 Whisper). The gunsmithing was done by IT&D Custom Gun in Ohio. The case is based on a .338 Lapua Magnum case cut down to 1.875 and necked up to accept 50 BMG bullets.

It has a 16 Douglass XX Premium barrel threaded at 7/8 14 tpi for suppressor
Seekins Precision bottom metal with 5 round magazine
Nightforce 20 MOA base
Rifle Basix 1.5lb trigger
Bell & Carlson Medalist Varmint/Tactical stock

Im including a set of dies
56 pieces of brass (some new, some have been fired)
130 Hawk Precision 750 grain subsonic expansion hollow points
80 surplus API bullets that have been pulled and resized

I originally built this for hog hunting. I thought it would be fun to set up at night and quietly plink hogs off from 300 or 400 yards away. But I have 2 babies now and have lost interest. I also thought it would be neat to have a .338 Lapua barrel made for it so you could switch barrels and have two totally different guns in one.

The rifle needs a little work. The safety needs to be installed (I have all the parts) and the bolt stop needs to be ground down a little to allow the bolt to side far enough back to clear the next round in the magazine (It could be done in a few minutes with a Dremel.) I did the inletting on the stock for the bottom metal myself and kind of did a hack job on it. It doesnt look pretty but its serviceable. There are several scratches on the rifle and stock. Theres a big nasty one on top of the bolt right behind the handle. Ive fired 40 to 50 rounds through it testing my silencer and trying different loads. I never really got it dialed in good so I cant say how well it shoots.

Asking $1000 plus shipping. Please E-mail me at treverwilliams@yahoo.com

I also have a Form 1 suppressor I could sell with it if someone really wants to do the paperwork.

Re: Custom Remington 700 12.7x48

It takes a little modification but it can be done. Remington offers it in 338 lapua from the factory now. This one started out as a 7mm mag. The gunsmith opened up the bolt face, installed a Sako extractor, and opened up the inlet for the longer cases. Also the bolt stop needs to be filed down a little bit to allow the bolt to slide a little further back.
