Looking for some input on a Rem Mod 7.
I just got a Remington Model seven in a 17 remington. It does not have the original stock on it and I am trying to research what the original may have been. It is a lightweight blued gun 18.5" barrel. If possible please post a pic of what the original stock to this gun may have looked like. I have suspicions it was wood not synthetic possibly w a schnable foreend??
Also, I am looking for the original open sights for it. I've tried Brownell's and Midway and Remington themselves with no success. Any ideas on outlets? Thanks in advance!!
IIRC that one had three, one in the bridge. It isn't my rifle, I resurrected it from the dead. This is what it looked like when the guy brought it in expertly refinished with black paint and a cheap brush!
If you are looking for a stock for that Model 7 let me know. I found a place that has some new Walnut stocks for a great price. However they do not look like the factory Model 7 stock. They look more like the stock Remington put on the 700 "Classic" series rifles. Overall a nice checkered walnut stock. If memory serves me right they were $165?? A good deal for a nice drop in walnut stock with checkering(IMO). Tom.
I went back and checked the link. The price was $129, not $165. And it is slightly different than the Classic design, it has a Monte Carlo like the BDL. But everything else would remind you of the Classic. The companies name is Stocky's Stocks. Do a search-you can find it if interested. But they won't last at that price. Tom.
