I'm selling my current rifle, to pave way for a new project. It's an accurized Remington 700, with what the previous owner says is a heavy barrel from a 40X(possibly a Hart). The gun is in great condition, and is very accurate with a variety of handloads, and Black Hills 168gr ammo. The action has been straitened, and the bolt was was lapped. It's impossible to tell for sure, but it also looks like the face was also squared off. Since I aquired the gun, I've have a signficant amount of work done to it. Here's the complete list...
I had the barrel shoulder set back slightly, and squared off. I had the face of the reciever was also squared off at that time. I have replaced the OEM recoil lug with a heavy, steel lug from Tubb. The OEM bottom metal was replaced with a steel unit from Williams. It's the type with the "tactical latch". I replaced the McMillan HTG stock, with an A3 type. I replaced the Shillen trigger that came with the gun, with an OEM piece. It's been tuned, and breaks like a glass rod at a reliable 3 pounds. The action was sprayed with KG GunKote, while it was dissassembled. When it was all screwed back together, I sprayed the outside of the action, and the barrel, with Brownell's Alumahyde in dark Parkerizing grey. I chose that because if the gun got scuffed, it could easily be touched up. I had a good friend, and competative shooter/instructor, bed the area around the tang of the rifle, and around the recoil lug. I then had a Morgan adjustable but-pad installed. It's a vertically adjustable pad. There is no adjustment for cant. The previous owner had sent the gun into Robar in 1996, for NP3 finishing on the bolt, selected trigger parts, and selected magazines parts. The action and function, as a result, is as smooth as glass.
All of the work that I had done, was done by a machininst/gunsmith with 25+ years of fabrication experience in the aerospace industry. The gun looks great, and is a real performer. I had it out at Badlands, and in a 20 mph wind, it kept a 6 inch group at 1000 yards with the Black Hills 168. At all other ranges out to 1000 yards, the gun was a 1/2 minute tack-driver. The gun currently wears Leupold Mk4 rings, and one-piece scope mount. That'll be included with the gun, as will an MRT sling that's been well broken in. If you're interested in the gun, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 513-262-3274 after 9pm EST. The price is $1600
, shipped and insured to your FFL holder.
BTW...The Mk4 scope is already sold, and the rifle pouch is staying with me. I have plenty of other pictures, so just e-mail me and I'll send them.
