Re: Remington 700 VLS free float/glass bed/change stock

I have had a 700 VLS in .308 for over a year now, my best 100 yd group is just under a half inch, and I have done nothing to it! Just experimented with different loads and bullets. Why fix something if it isn't broken?

Re: Remington 700 VLS free float/glass bed/change stock

If you are being careful with the cash and want a better trigger, I would try a Shilen. Mine was 2.5lb out the package and it really was not very complicated to fit. My 2004 Rem 700 trigger could not be adjusted below about 5lb while being safe and functioning reliably. The best part is that the Shilen sells for less than $100 at Brownells http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=12531/avs|Manufacturer_1=SHILEN/Product/REMINGTON_700_40X_XP_100_ADJUSTABLE_TRIGGERS



The only improvement I would suggest is rounding the edge of the trigger itself. I believe it is wire cut and has a square edge. It is the only negative in a great trigger.
