Its already on order and should be here in another week or so, they had to make me one in OD green. I'll check the B&C stocks, I have before but wasnt familiar with them so I passed. I know what the HS Police stock is as I've used it before so I jumped at that. Maybe I'll try a B & C on my next project

The H&S will look and perform well too. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures and hearing how it performs once you put the stock on.

What is the difference between a 700 and a 700 sps. I know the sps has a cheaper stock or at least I think it does but what else is cut to make it cost less?

The SPS models are ADLs with a cheaper stock but as far as I know, the actions and barrels are one in the same. In this case, the SPS Varmint is the same as the 700P or any other of Big Greens varmint/heavy barrelled rifles except for that cheap stock it comes with. I could have gotten a 700P for the same price I'm paying when you add up the cost of the rifle and the HS stock, but I didn't have all 900 upfront and I didn't want the run of the mill black so I decided on going this route. And actually, going this route got me the new trigger which out of the box is very adequate for my needs.

Here's a review of the SpS-V that sheds some light on what it did before they removed the stock and popped an HS on...

Out of the box it's very respectable, and honestly I'm already pleased with it's performance. Just holding it though, it just feels so cheap and just....wrong. I miss having a palm swell too

I have one in .308 and I changed out the stock to a H-S Precision. I have shot .58 MOA @ 300 yards with mine. Very good rifle for the price. I'm happy.
