You could also look to the Rem. VS for performance.Jeff_850 said:its a Rem 700 ADL
ive shot several ADLs there sporter barrels and prefrom as such... 1.5 - 2.5 moa being average for them
if you want performance look to the police sharpshooter varients... Remington 700P, Savage 10-FP etc
so thats Remington's way of admitting defeat???mele said:Which is great news and its also available in .300 WSM which is interesting as its the first remington chambered in this direct competitor to the .300 SAUM.
What after market brand of bolt would you recommend as a replacement, Mel?? I too would like to replace the bolt on my VS.mele said:I have just ordered an SPS to use for the action on an SC1. I will replace the j lock though with a new firing pin assembly. So, if this works out, all SC rifles will now be built on brand new actions. (and no pricing change)
Well, I'd say yes, it is. If you can't beat em' join em.Jeff_850 said:so thats Remington's way of admitting defeat???
so is the 700 SPS a differnt action than the 700 BDL???
and why the switch???
Now, I'm not replacing the bolt, just the firing pin assembly (firing pin, shroud, firing pin spring, cocking mechanism). I'm looking at both a Remington Factory replacement (without ISS) and the Taylor (without ISS and with an aluminum shroud).What after market brand of bolt would you recommend as a replacement, Mel?? I too would like to replace the bolt on my VS.
Thats one of the main rubs, another is the introduction of ANOTHER mechanism to fail at the worst time, another is asthetics (longer shroud doesn't look as nice to many), another is just wanting to buck the "big brother" we know whats best behavior of Remington.What are the evils of a J-lock exactly? I have heard and read about slower lock times. Is this the main rub??
Mel,mele said:Okay guys, put on the brakes for a second....
check this out. The 700 SPS is NOT just an ADL with a new name, it DOES have the bottom BDL floor plate!!
I'm not sure if you are talking about the two part numbers you listed below or wether you are talking about aluminum vs. stainless. Of course, SS offers great corrosion resistence, but aluminum does also. If you plan to finish it with blueing or other means, then that helps fight the elements also.SpEcTeR said:Would the SS actually provide better resistance to the elements?
Yes, those part numbers are the entire assembly, but it does NOT specify wether it does or does not have the ISS. This part number 767-220-410 specifically says "NON ISS" and I would go with that one. (there is LA also).Does the Firing pin assembly 767-000-718 or 767-000-717 contain all the parts I require for the conversion? What tools should I have on hand?
They come either way. I "think" that part number was stainless....SpEcTeR said:Is the part number 767-220-410 Stainless or Blued? I would rather have stainless and coat for best assurance of corrosion free shooting.
