Who makes the lightest rem 700 stock?

I have been toying with the idea of getting a new ultra lite rifle but have also been thinking of revamping my rem 700 mountain rifle. I bought it back in 1989 with a wood stock then put on their cheap synthetic stock with a very nice ( for the time) Burris scope. I'm thinking of bead blasting the metal parts and air brushing it with cerakote or someting like that, changing the scope to a newer lighter scope and changing the stock. She's always shot great and having had it for 20 years holds some sentimental value to me.

the thrill is not in the kill, but in the experience

Put the wood stock back on and get rid of the "plastic". Those Mountain Rifles, with the wood stock were light enough and SO classic looking.

You should be taken out an whipped for desecrating such a rifle with "plastic"!

I do still have the wooden stock but chances are it won't go back on, sorry Dutch.

McMillan EDGE
Bansner/ High Tech Specialties comes in around 23 ounces, slightly cheaper than the McMillan.

Remington Ti takeoff is a bit heavier than the first two, but it'll only run you 175-200 bucks.

I put a Ti takeoff on one of my rifles, and I love it.

Re: Who makes the lightest rem 700 stock?

Savage just came out with a lightweight rifle at 5.5 lbs. I would go that route and have a new rifle before I spent $600 on a stock for a rifle and the main purpose of the stock wasn't to increase accuracy.

For as much as you'll tie up modifying what you have, you'll be close to just buying another anyway.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

What caliber is your mountain rifle. If its a long action (non Magnum) and you would interested in selling the old wood stock I will be willing to buy it depending on condition.

Brownells has the High Tech Specialties for $252 but still needs paint and recoil pad which is not a big deal. Now just need to decide what colors to spray my rifle
