    I have two remington 700 mountain rifles. I want to go custom with one of them. Can i order a stock for the regular 700 or will it not fit?

    So long as you get the right action length the only difference will be the barrel contour. The Mountain rifle tends to have a narrower barrel compared to other models. This will mean you might have a big gap between the barrel and the stock.
