I have a Remington model 700 with the detachable magazine. I am limited by this on being able to stretch my O.A.L due to the limits of the clip. Can the front of the clip be cut out? If I could this would darn near give me another 1/8 inch of safe room...A lot. I have been told that there is nothing that can be changed even with an aftermarket stock. And quite frankly already have a hogue and wouldn’t change it for the world. Thanks in advance!
