I'm planning to put a McMillan M40A1 stock on my R700, and I'm wondering about bottom metal. I know the M40A1 rifles had Winchester M70 bottom metal, and I can order the stock to accommodate that.

My questions are: where can I find the proper bottom metal? There are a few shops that make it, so which one is what I need? Do I need a modified version of the bottom metal? Also, I'm in Canada. Any Canadian shops that would have what I need?

Thanks in advance.

The bottom metal was actually two pieces on the M40A1 and I believe there are a few people that make reproductions. If you are going for a genuine authentic reproduction, then you will want to go that route. But if you just want better than the remmy 700 pot metal floorplate, then there are other more accessible alternatives made of steel, etc.
