Hi all
Would anybody know where I could find the Original Bottom Metal for a Remington 700 DM Long action? Preferably blued. I've seen many variations but I'd like the factory part.
Thanks.

I haven't been able to find 'factory' DM bottom metal for years. Here is the original bottom metal made by Dakota. It's in the white so you'll have to find someone to blue it for you or use Cerakote:

Thank you for the info. Cost is a bit more than I was looking to spend. This isn't a custom build I just wanted to change over a BDL model I've had for years. Still hoping someone has the original Rem part lying around.

10-4 I have, no luck. I did find a company in Ohio that had them but they wanted $250 also. I think the part cost around $45 when Remington had them in stock so $250 is excessive to me. I actually have a Kwik Klip in the gun now and I gotta say I don't hate it but just like like the original a little better.

The original Rem part is cast metal, then painted.
Honestly, any of the aftermarket options, even aluminium versions are more desirable than the OEM part.

Cheers.
P. S.
All of my builds get PT&G bottom metal, whether a stainless or blued action. They are some of the nicest finished bottom metals out there. I buy them unfinished and they range from $125-199USD. Well worth the money for real steel.
