Re: rem 721 for LR

A friend of mine has a Texas Brigade Armory rifle for sale on the Hide built on a 721. Here's the link:

FS Texas Brigade Armory .300WSM long action - Sniper's Hide Forums

The 721 is the predecessor to the 700 long action. They were made from 1948 to 1962 (give or take a year or two). Had a few bolt issues if I remember correctly. I think with broken extractors but not sure. The fix is to just buy a new PTG bolt to fit and voila, you got an up to date action. Oh and drop in any new trigger too.

Re: rem 721 for LR

Aside from being an all around pretty gun action, I think a lot of the open sight target guy's like the striper cut in the top of the action for competition; much like the 40XB's have. At any rate it's a nice action to build on...
Just my .02

I just bought me another one to play with. It's been re-barreled to 300wby. Now I need to find a better stock for it.
