    I just picked up a 1978 short action Remington 700 BDL, I'm looking to put it into a Bell and Carlson Light Varmint stock (same as Remington 700 LVSF), this stock requires an ADL configuration...

    What parts do I need for a BDL to ADL conversion, besides a trigger guard and front trigger guard screw?

    Thanks for you input!

    Magazine box and the little screw that holds it to the action.

    Is the BDL setup for installation of the ADL box, i.e. the small screw?

    It used to be all were tapped for that little screw. I don't know about now. Take it outof the stock and look, it's at the rear off-set to one side.

    Thanks all! I have been so busy lately that I still haven't got a chance to yank it out of the stock and check to see if it's threaded for the mag box screw.

    Thank you all again!

    My rifle is drilled and tapped for the ADL box retainer screw. I'll post pics once I finish this project.

    Thanks!
