My Remington 700 ADL in 223 Remington Project

Dick's Sporting Goods had a sell on the Remington model 700 ADL SPS Varmit in 223 Remington. It has a 26" barrel the standard SPS beavertail stock in camo with a 4-12 x 40mm scope. Not a bad deal for $450 plus tax. This is my donor rifle that I plant to build into a one hole rifle. Here my process.

Here is how I do it

What i started with

bolt upgrade

I first installed the provided Weaver bases and the super Sniper 16x scope. I used low rings for the scope install. The bolt knob was the next thing and it came out ok (click here to see how I did it) and the scope clearance was fine.

stock upgrade

I added a Choate stock that I got on a steal. Neat stock has some good options and styling. It is a good stock at a great price. Check one out, when you get a chance.
