    I have a remington 710 in 30-06. I cant find anything online for this gun as far as stocks, triggers, and barrels.

    I would like to get a new stock and barrel, and have the action squared and piller bedded. could anyone tell me if this is even possable and how much money i might have to spend to do it!

    I'm not completely certain but I think the 710 barrels are pressed to the action instead of being threaded to it. I think that might make barrel changes and other work more problematic. If you post this question in the gunsmith section I'm sure you'll get a definitive reply though.

    I am pretty sure Jmason is correct, which is too bad.

    On the bright side of things, you don't have much invested into the rifle to begin with. If you are looking for a better shooting rifle you could easily recoup much of your money by selling the 710 as is and getting a different rifle. The 700 is a vary popular rifle to update as well is the savage or stevens.

    Good luck, Mark.

    hey, don't feel bad, people have lost much more than that in the past. My Dad and Sister both have 710's and I know for sure that my dad's shoots pretty good. I would guess about 1 - 1.5 MOA with factory ammo.

    You may want to rethink the Savage. I have one in 300 WSM and its a shooter.
    I also have a couple of friends who own them also and they shoot good.
    Just my .02:)

    The big advantage that savage has over the other's is the fact that you can swap out barrels yourself with reletively inexpensive tools. The Accutrigger is good too. I am by no means a fan of savage, but I think I'm one of very very few that have had poor experiences with savage accuracy. Generally speaking they are an ugly duckling that does a good job. IMHO of course ;)

    Savages can come with better grade stocks if you like. Savage has the accutrigger in their newer models (I'm going to guess for a couple years now). Stevens 200s are the same action and barrel.

    ZACH Just stay with the remingtons. Find a 700 and maybe we can get some barrels from the new manufacturer and do some testing. Remington!!!

    Not to bust your bubble but in laymen's terms the 710 is a throw away gun. Average day hunter dont want to spend much, as long as he can hit a deer at 50 yards everyone is happy. Buy a 700 if you want to play with triggers, barrels, etc.

    SELL the 710 as soon as you can! Find a 700 or a savage 110 or 111 or you can do it the hard way like I did. Start out with a 721 and redo it
