Remington 700 SPS Varmint Stock
Alright fellas, I'm looking for ideas on how to make my Rem 700 SPS-V stock stronger.
Now this rifle will shoot .5 MOA groups, the problem is, you change position, you change the POI. I think that this is because of the stock, I have noticed that it flexes, and the two points on the end touch the barrel and I think when I change positions it changes the stress on the barrel causing it to shoot elsewhere.
The two blacks at the end that touch the barrel
What looks like to be a week spot in the stock
I know that I need to grind those two supporting blocks at the end of the stock down. I have seen where someone drilled a 1/4 inch hole through the front of the stock to the recoil lug and put some aluminum rods in there, but I do not have a drill bit that is long enough to reach that far. Is there some kind of putty or something that i could fill each hole with to help make it stiffer? or would it be better to try to find a long drill bit? Do you have any other ideas on how to make this stronger?
I plan on replacing the stock with a B&C Tactical, but money is kind of tight right now, and the wait for one is a few weeks so I thought I might as well modify this one so that it will work for the time being.
Dremel out to grooves down the sides and put an arrow shaft or something similar, then fill it will some bedding compound.
What scope are you running?
Is there a reason you want to keep that stock?
Can you afford $230 for a new B&C Medalist?
change the stock.....
Scope is a SWFA SS 10x42.
I am just a high school student, so all I make is around $100 bucks a week, and right now I'm still trying to pay off my AR-15 upper that I built (Parents paid for it, I'm paying them back), I am also out of ammo for all of my guns and that is another $200 for all of that. So we are talking four or so weeks, plus the other wait time for the stock to even be delivered. I will probably pay off my parents at the end of the week, and might see if they wont order the B&C for me and I will pay them back later.
As stated above, you should swap stocks. The OEM plastic leaves a lot
to be desired. This guy on YouTube has a series of videos demonstrating how he bedded the action on his factory SPS-V .308 (LINK
Yeah after looking at the stock some more, and trying to get it to flex and all of that, I just dont think it will be worth my time to even try to make it work the way I want it. I just hate that it changes the POI every time I move it.
Stocky Stocks told me it would be a few weeks to get a B&C in, so I guess I will just have to wait till money comes around to order one.
I put a rem 40X stock on mine for $40 from Numrich. They have a handstop rail, no recoil pad though. I inlet it for the bottom metal and pillar bedded the action. It wasn't that hard and saved a lot of money. you can get a different stock that is already inlet, but I wanted on to match my 22lr 40x.
The factory SPS-V stock is not worth the effort when there are plenty of other stock options out there.
I gave away my SPS-V stock immediately.
Well guys, I went ahead and asked my parents if they would order it for me, they told me as long as I can pay them by the end of the month I'm good to go. I have a Bell and Carlson Tactical Medalist A2 on order from Stockstocks. Now for the backorder wait!
