    700 VTR - Magazine Instead Of Floorplate

    Sorry if this is a really stupid question but after some searching, I can't find an answer.

    I have a remington 700 VTR and would like to be able to use detachable magazines instead of the floorplate system.

    What do I need to do to make that happen?

    Thanks!

    HS Precision or Badger floor plate for detachable magazines. Brownells.com carries them.

    Throw the VTR away and buy another gun with a round barrel and a drop box magazine.

    You have a few options.

    The remington DBM system would take some fitting and completely different stock.

    HS Precision might be your best bet if you want to keep the VTR stock. Its "almost" a drop in. It might take some removed of material from the stock though I will say I am not sure it will work on that vtr stock, but I would think that it might

    Badger Ordnance - Requires removing a decent amount of material to inlet it into the stock. They are considerably larger than the BDL floorplate your VTR has. But it is a nice system.

    Thanks.

    I heard that Glen at Seekins Precision is making a detachable magazine and lower metal. Very cool looking and it has me thinking about adding that to the list for Mark at LOSOK to do to my build. Mel or Larry have you guys heard anything about it yet?
    If you can see the big picture, you are not concentrating on your front sight post.

    I've read about it and he has a thread on Sniper's Hide in the commercial section. If it's as good as his other stuff it's probably very good. PDI is also making detachable mag bottom metal if I remember correctly. The nice thing about a company like seekins is you can get Glen on the phone without too much trouble.

    Which 700 rifle comes with detachable magazines out of the box? Those add-ins are pricey considering what I spent for the whole rifle.
