Thanks for posting that. I was trying to find the same bits for a model 70. (Brownells carries one, but it's something like $400)
*Just read the older post... Guess you already knew about the Brownell's one :)
I expect the one they make for the Model 70 is as nice as the one they make for the 700. Buy it.
Very nice choice for a very a great pick. I am paying attention, taking notes, and watching. I know that these extra expenses add up, but just about anything you could do to this rifle would still leave it far below the starting market price for the accuracy. And those others you would still have to reconfigure (though at custom cost) as well. Thanks for the info.
Dremel tool, felt tip, white polishing compound and *CAREUL* application, and the replacement will look even better.
Nope, Bud, it's "in-the-white," and not stainless. It's going to be finished in Gunkote a nice matte black.
Nonetheless, verry nice. Even if not finished, very nice.
What's left now is refinishing, installing the scope base, and picking out a scope. In the mean time, I'll probably be moving one off another rifle so I can shoot it.
Pictures will follow.
