want a m-24
so i am wanting to get a remmington 700 in .308, and want to get one that is as close to the m-24 as possible,(just thought it would be cool to have) but when i went to remmingtons web site they have alot of 700 varients, so my question is which one is the closest to the m-24. Thank you for your advice!;)

I don't know if you can buy one as a civilian.

There is this one. Model 700™ XCR™ Compact Tactical

Holy Hell!

$3200 and you have a stock ( tuned ) trigger, a stock barrel and it doesn't include optics?? :eek:

Not for me thanks....

3200 bucks? thats highway robbery.

hillbilly68 12-03-2009 08:35 PM

hey ya bastards, you just asked IF you could buy one....sheesh.

FWIW I wouldnt do it either.

Pick up a PSS and have work done on it a little at a time. Or a 700 Tactical if you want the 20" bbl. Drop in trigger, new stock, and continue to improve.

:DThanks for the info, 3200 is way out of my price range, but its nice to know you can get one! lol!, I think i might go with the rem. 700 sps it looks real close to the m24 and a bit cheaper! thanks again:)

My blood runs Remington Green but holy hell Who ever buys that is effing stupid.

You can get a full on custom build with a stiller action for that much.

hey Col, I think that is a good choice. My last one I started with a 700 sps tactical for around 600. A great gun out of the box except for that silly rubber stock they put on it. I started with a Bell and Carlson (people will bad mouth them, but for the money they are good) and you dont have to wait a half year to get it.
A fast locking firing pin and drop in trigger on top of that is all you need to get her going after the mounts rings and optic. It shoots a lot better than I can. ;)
Good luck, let us know what you get!
