Rem 700 blind mag to detach mag conversion?

Greetings. I am wondering if my base model Rem 700 (blind magazine) can be converted to accept a detachable magazine? It's quite accurate for a stock rifle with no bedding and unfloated bbl, however, i would like to eventually get a nice stock slapped on there with a fluted and floated bbl and all that jazz. But I see most of these stocks are for either hinged floor plate or detachable mags-of which I don't have either. So, again, is it possible to convert a blind mag into a detachable one? Besides, they just look so much cooler! Anyway, thanks for your time. Attached is a picture of my rifle in its current, all stock state.

I think you can.
I have not done it.
I have only built (2) Rem 700s in my life.
But I can see on line, those that are ready to sell you the conversion are also ready to answer questions on the phone.

Be advised that some magazines you might want to use are in as short supply as powder, primers, ammo, and firearms.

It can be done. I changed mine from he ADL stock to a B&C A2 and added a PTG trigger guard/mag well that accepts AI mags. It took some inletting to get the bottom metal to fit. If your a DIY guy, you can probably manage, if not I would suggest having a gunsmith do it. There may be better bottom metals to use that require less work too. Good luck.
