Re: Rem. Mod 7 and Mod 700 actions- what is difference

Thanks guys! That is what I thought but wanted to be sure. At this point the son has decided to put the .243 project off. He found a Kimber 84 in .260 Rem with Leupold scope that he bought instead.

Rem. Mod 7 and Mod 700 actions- what is difference

What is different between these two actions besides length? My son is trying to build a .243 Varmint gun and asked me if there was a difference, other than length. What say you all? Thanks!

Hi Guys/Gals:

I am an old gun nut. I have a few Remington keepers such as an XP100. Mod. 700 Classic in .221Fireball and a couple of competition 870's in TC trap and 410 Skeet. I like Remingtons! I have many other guns but am fond of the above. :)
