WTB: Remington 700 BLD short action receiver for an upcoming project. Prefer a 308/243/22-250 bolt face, but can live without it. If you have a shot-out barreled action laying around, drop me a note! Thanks in advance. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
If you can bear to take apart a new rifle, I have an unfired 700 VLS in .308. Newer style, w/beavertail forend and bolt shroud lock thing. Right hand, short action, 26" varmint bbl, 1:12" twist, new but not in original box.
it's not about need in the USA -- it's about WANT
speedbump--I have a Remington 700 vls in 7mm-08 that I'm not using right now.(was planning to rebarrel to some hot little wildcat varmint caliber some time in the future, but could use cash now) It's been blueprinted by Kevin Knight of High Performance Gunsmithing and did OK out here at the Northwest 1000 Yard Benchrest Association in the 11-lb class. If you are interested, I'll take $500 for barrelled action or $600 including stock. Contact me at email@example.com
SPEEDBUMP--the barrel is the original Remington 26" tube. Blued(OK, it looks black to me)heavy varminter contour, approx.13/16ths at the muzzle. Around 500 rounds thru it, but I'll have to check my reloading records for sure. Carefully broken in, cleaned after every 15-20 rds, used only for 1000-yard competition. BTW, you have e-mail. frankenstein
