Any long action Rem 700 stock will fit.

You might need to dremel a stock a bit at the safety. The 721 safety is a bit further out than the 700.

On the 700's Remington notched the rear tang to keep the safety in a little tighter.

You'll probably need to inlet the barrel channel for the rear sight "doughnut" also.

I have a carbon fiber clone that I make off the old M-40 Marine Corps Sniper Stock.

Light weight, very rigid, and ready to go. Custom inletted for any appropriate action.

Good advice above. I've done a couple 721's and used 700 stocks including those from H-S Precision. They worked out well with very little modification.....Rich
