Rem. 7600 35 Whelen Carbine

So, I got the wood stocks today for my Grice synthetic 35 Whelen Carbine.

Forend went on pretty easy.

Was surprised to find they sent it with no butt plate!?. I guess that is another part, but I wish they would have told me I needed it. I did explain what I was trying to do.

I found that the bolt that holds the butt stock on is too long for the wood stock. Where the washer engages the stock is further forward. You can see where it needs to be on the synthetic stock and where it is on the wood stock.

So, I at first thought that I needed a shorter bolt. Now, I am thinking I can just use plastic washers to take up the space.

Will call Remington tomorrow and hopefully order the butt plate.

Looks nice. Heck, since you need to order a butt plate, why not just order the appropriate bolt?

I'll see if they have one. Probably the best idea. Thank you.

Looks good. I thought about doing that with the one I bought. What scope are you gonna use? I went with a Leupold Vari x 3i in 2.5x8x33. Hope I like it.

That's a nice set up. Probably just going to be a safe queen. I have another full length Whelen that I have been using for quite a few years and will use that.

FWIW I saw a 7600 35 whelen carbine NIB (IIRC) on a dealer's table at the Harrisburg gun show for $650 (again, IIRC) - it was right around Grice's price anyhow. Was a lil cash poor right then. Didnt note the dealer.

If they were selling them with that wood I would be first in line to buy one. That looks great.

Very nice. You got me thinking now.

How was the mate on the stock between the receiver and the grip? Fairly flush?

Hey, 35 whelen, just curious. I picked up one of Grice's 35 remmy pumps from another forum member quite a few years ago - and it too was done up in the plastic stock theme. Wanted to ask if this one, as stocked, had the same issue I found.

The butt stock had so little drop, that you couldn't get on the iron sights unless your head was that of a munchkin!

I've since restocked mine with an AR style collapsible stock that works like a charm. But I was just wondering if your's came the same way.

I whole Wholeheartedly agree, your wood looks 100% better!!

Perfect, I'll post some pics when I get the right sized stock bolt.
