    700 BDL to Detachable Magazine

    Can I convert my 700 BDL to a detachable magazine? I just got my action and barrel back from ER Shaw ( 1 month turn around!) and realized the ultimate sniper stock I have is for a detachable magazine.

    TIA

    There is a kit out there that converts your gun to a magazine fed. I cant remember what web site it was on but just try a web search.

    Do you mean the detachable magazines from HS Precision?http://www.hsprecision.com/new_floor_plate.htm

    They have 10 round magazines available.

    Yes, you can convert, quite easily, to a DBM. You will need to purchase the Remington DBM triggerguard and a DBM magazine, and that is about it! I have recently did a conversion for a writeup on the site. I did have to do a little bit of file work to get the magazine to snap in and out smoothly, but that was just low quality production from remington, and probably isn't necessary in most cases.

    Cost for bottom metal and magazine will probably be about $80 from brownells.com, midwayusa.com may also have them.

    Mel,

    Thanks for the write up on the sub $850 model 700 rifle. It gave me the confidence and knowledge to get started on mine. The ER Shaw stainless barrel is so beautiful I don't want to paint it now :wink: I went for a 24 inch contour 3.5 in 308.

    If your stock is made for a DBM, then you have to find out which one it is made for. You then just purchase the proper bottom metal. It sounds like you aren't converting it, since the stock is already inletted for a DBM.

    Am I reading what you wrote properly?

    I'm confused because I found this online:

    Q. “Can I put my BDL or ADL rifle in to one of the Detachable magazine stocks so I can use detachable
    magazines?”
    A. No, the feed lips on the BDL and ADL rifles are cut into the bottom of the action and the feed lips on the detachable
    mag. rifles are in the magazine itself.

    well, i doubt that is true of all aftermarket DBM systems. i hope not because i just recieved my Badger DBM bottom kit. the instructions say nothing of feed rail mods. just stock inletting. anyway, it's goin' on this weekend.

    monty
