just picked up my new remington model 700 action that i ordered a couple a weeks ago. time order some parts fo it and get it ready to ship off for the barrel. after talking to several different barrel makers, i have decided to go with McGowan barrels.

55,

I see you got a good trigger. Is that the same one used in the 40X? Keep us informed and send more pictures when you get your project farther on the road and also when it is completed. And of course a Range Report later!
That is an exciting project!

thanks 03. i had my gun dealer order it from brownells. they don't even list it in their catalog, but is listed on the website. the trigger is listed as the X-Mark Pro trigger in the description. not for sure if this is the same trigger used on the 40X or not. on the remington website it only states the 40X trigger being adjustable, really not a lot of detail about it. but the regular model 700's have the X-Mark Pro triggers on them. kinda of confusing. will post pictures as the build progresses. next week or two i will ship it off to get the barrel installed. they told me about 10-12 week turn around on it.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product. The only reason I thought it was the same as the trigger in my 40X is what looks like an adjustment on yours by the trigger.

03, there is an adjustment on the trigger shoe, which my other remington 700's don't have. so i not for sure at all on the newer remington triggers if this is standard on the newer ones. BTW, what is the difference between the 40X and the M700? i have seen and heard of the 40X, but have never held one. just curious.

Nice. I can't wait to see what you do with it. What caliber is it?

decided on 6.5mm-06. will have a 26" barrel, contour is to be similar to the remington sendaro (.830 muzzle diameter) barrel threaded for muzzlebrake. i'm leaning hard towards a H-S Precision stock and triggerguard and maybe a detachable magazine (not fully decided yet). thanks.
