I have a remington youth model seven 243 can i use this action to build a mid range shooter is the action same as a 700 ?
I had a local friend, and professional gunsmith, build me a 1,000 yd .308 tack-driver out of a Remington 7 action. It was the most accurate gun I have ever had. It had an M24 barrel on it, trued-up, Jewel 2-stage trigger, custom HS Precision stock with an aluminum bed-block in it, floated barrel, glass-bedded action, it was insanely accurate. Then some jack-leg broke into my shop back in '08 (through 2 locked and dead-bolted doors...1 was a steel door) and stole it and I haven't seen it since. Makes me sick every time I think about it.
I will build another one someday.....I just have to have an action, and I can't seem to find another model 7, or 700 SA with a jeweled bolt for sale anywhere. Anyone got one they wouldn't mind selling for relatively cheap? Sorry, but money's been kinda tight for the last year or so since the economy plummeted.
Well good luck to ya man. Sorry to hear about your loss. I don't know what I would do if my guns got stolen. Thank god for homeowners insurance! Hope it works out with your buddy so you can get that gun he promised you...
In most cases homeowners' insurance won't cover much of anything for guns unless you have a special rider with each gun listed. Our H.O. policy has a maximum gun coverage of $1,500, and we have "a bit" more than that.
