Gun Stock Reviews: Remington Model Seven Scout Rifle Project Part 1
We are taking a Remington Model Seven Threaded Rifle in .308 Win and we are turning it into a Scout Rifle using Col. Jeff Coopers Guidelines and doctrine or as close as we can get to them.
Our first steps is to find a Bottom Metal that accepts Accuracy International Pattern magazines, from there, the sky is the limit, well 3.3 kilos is the Real Limit, but we will see how close we can get to the original Jeff Cooper Vision of the Scout Rifle.
The Reming Model Seven rifle is lightning-fast in close quarters and superbly accurate for the long shot, the compact, short-action Model Seven™ has been a knock-down, drag-out leader in the woods since it was introduced in 1983.
Its receiver is based on the Model 700™ and is 1/2″ shorter than the Model 700™ short action to deliver the highest level of out-of-the-box accuracy, strength and reliability in a platform that’s 2 3/8″ shorter overall and weighs just 6 1/2 lbs. (standard calibers).
For even more game-stopping punch, match this handy design with some of the hardest-hitting short action magnums.
Model Seven rifles in these chamberings have a 20″ magnum contour barrel.
