    I was offered a 7oo rem action which is supposed to have a "C" in the serial number.
    My question is, is there such,and is it a good thing.
    I am building a whby,and plan on using a 7oo action.
    This is my first post,so take it easy on a newby.

    Remington started using the "C" prefix serial number in 11/87.

    Neither good or bad.
