Have to remember that Rem 700 design Does Not Ever Lock The Firing Pin! Prevent the bolt handle from lifting? Sure. Firing Pin Can Still release and fire if round in chamber...

I owned more than 10 Rem 700s a few years back and sold all but one.
Prefer the Winchester 70 or Sako designs. The rifles shoot as well as the legendary 700, and I can lock the firing pin and remove the bolt from battery if I choose.

Locking the Rem 700 bolt is a misinformed safety measure...
