New Remington 700 Stock from Magpul

magpul1

The Remington 700 first started production in 1962 and quickly gained popularity. Today there are multiple bolt-action rifles within the line and it remains a favorite among many long gun fans. If you yourself have a Remington 700 you may be interested in the latest offering from Magpul: the Hunter 700 LA Stock.

The Hunter 700 LA Stock is, of course, made for Remington 700 Long Action rifles. The system is designed as a drop-in solution although Magpul does note it is made for right-handed receivers only. Another requirement is that ADL models, which have a blind floorplate, must have a current Remington factory hinged bottom.

The new stock is made with a reinforced polymer and has a Type III hard anodized, A380 cast aluminum bedding block. It was designed as an affordable yet well-made option that allows the user to adjust length of pull and comb height. As with all Magpul stocks it’s made with enhanced ergonomics and materials used are chosen for both durability and performance. It’s compatible with all factory Remington barrels. Available colors include black, flat dark earth, stealth gray, and olive drab green.

MSRP $279.95. Take a look online at https://www.magpul.com/products/hunter-700-la-stock-remington-700-long-action?utm_source=LA&utm_medium=LA&utm_campaign=LA&utm_term=LA&utm_content=LA

    I will never understand, why is it so hard to make folding M24/R700 stocks?

    The thing I hate most about the M24 in the army (besides the jams) was the fact the stock doesn’t fold. Led to a million and one headaches in every way. Why also does no one use the huge empty room in the stock to hold spare rounds or a magazine (in the newer versions)?

    Is there a reason behind this that I don’t know about?

    • Mike N.

      Like anything else, cost. There are plenty of chassis type systems with a folding stock, like Remington’s own chassis for their PSR, their RACS for 700 type actions, KRG’s Whiskey-3 (a Sako TRG style chassis), the AICS chassis and many others. Manners even makes a traditional fiberglass/carbon fiber stock that folds. But none of them are cheap.

      The Magpul is veritably entry level at only $280.

        Thanks guys

      Folding stocks are prectical in alu chassis that have now become more or less military standard world wide. But making the fold in composite stocks is much harder

    • Uncle Festet

      For a rifle which exists because of the need for precision, a folding stock would probably be a mistake. Moving parts generally reduce precision,

      • DW

        Folding stock does not affect harmonics of the barrel, and is seen on many high end sniper rifles (AI, Sako, etc)

    I haven’t followed Magpul’s R700 stocks for a while. Is the short action version on sale/available?

    • Spencerhut

      Yes, they run ~$250

  • Twilight sparkle

    Am I the only one that’s not liking the new stuff from Remington?

  • gusto

    Awful looking

    I don’t get this kinds of stocks
    you really want function over form you go with a chassi/tubegun
    there are those as light if not lighter then synthetics out there now

    or you really want a rifle and use a proper wooden stock, it has sufficed for 500years and just plain looks right
