Re: long Rem 700 guard screws???
Brownells does have guard screws for the 700 in S.S. ,,,, they're just not of the "extra long" variety. Many of those screws that are used with S.S. actions are chrome plated, not S.S. The reason. S.S against S.S. can gall badly without lubrication. Add lub to any threaded conection and the torque values change. As for "the added corrosion resisitance",,,,,,, blouder dash! 416R can and will rust. If I thought I just had to have S.S. screws for appearance sake, I'd buy the long blued ones, fit 'um, and bake on some a 'aluminum' colored spray paint. Problem solved without a lot of 'hoop-la'.
