hey guys. I am seriously considering making my first custom gun modifications. i have a stock rem 700 PSS, w/ leupold mkIV M3 10x fixed, with mkIV rings. I am most likely never going to change the stock, (i know i'll regret saying that in a couple years...lol).
the first steps i want to take are...
an enlarged bolt knob. I contacted HD rifles to know avail to double check on how long it takes to install a badger knob on my bolt. I also like the idea of the pinning the handle to the bolt for extra security. my question is does anyone know of reputable gunsmiths that do this? what is average turnaround time and price?

also soon i want to get the trigger down to around 3 pounds. is this something i could take into my local gun shop and get done? or is this something i would have to send off to a tactical gun maker?

after these, i want to get the action trued and a heavier fluted barrel.

thanks for any tips.

HD does good work, no reason not to go with them for the knob. I may have them do some of my knobs if tac-ops gets backed up.

In terms of the trigger, just about any local gun smith will work, as they remmy triggers are simple to adjust. Its a simple process to do if you want to try it yourself. Just be sure to do a good safety function check. Hopefully you got a good remington trigger, some of their new ones haven't been very good, while their older ones were great and easily adjusted to about 2 lbs. Anymore you are lucky to get down to 3 lbs.... 3.5 is what I default to on the SC rifles.

Don't know the exactly pull on my trigger - but the gun smith saved me a load of money. I was about to buy a Jewell trigger..but he said he'd give it a go and let me feel the result. It's simply perfect. Nothing else can be said about it. It's lightyears away from the "standard" Rem700 trigger I've tried in unmodified rifles.

Bocephus,

Ask your smith what his trigger job consists of, a good trigger job consists of more than just turning the adjustment screws. He should be polishing or smoothing up the surfaces as well. Remington triggers can be made to feel awsome if the smith knows what he is doing. The job should run from $35.00 to no more than $55.00.

Yep, he is right! Had one done about 6 months ago for $35
