View Full Version : what basic remington 700 do i need

November 22, 2011, 07:18 AM
I'm planning on starting a new rifle project with a remington 700. I enjoy making modifications and making the rifle my own. One of these changes is i would like to add a detachable magazine. I understand there are different variations of this rifle that do or do not allow a detachable mag kit. Can anyone refer me to the actual variation of the 700 that would allow this, and if you don't mind, exactly what parts i will need to do it?

Also, i would prefer the 30-06 chambered version, does that allow detach mags?

If not that, i will go for the .308 version. I have a Saiganov in .308 already, so i just thought 30-06 would be a good change.

Brownell's sells bottom metal for Remington 700 rifles. THIS LINK (http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=27538/avs|Make~~Model_1=Remington__700/Product/BOTTOM-METAL-WITH-DETACHABLE-MAGAZINE) shows the bottom metal manufactured by Surgeon rifles. It fits the long action.

Well you need the BDL model 700. H&S makes detach mag for the 30-06 in 5/10rd and it's just a change out and here another site that makes one

Well good luck

If you have a 700 BDL , CDL or classic the changeover kits will work . If you want a kit that a blue collar guy can afford Check out the Kwik Klip . They work great and are under a hundred dollars . If you google Kwik Klip you will find them at Amazon .com , both 4 and 10 round clips are available .
