[SHOT 2016] Magpul’s Long Action Hunter Stock

IMG_0640

Last year Magpul introduced the Hunter stock for the Remington 700 short action rifle. Short action shooters have embraced the polymer wonder stock but shooters that have embraced long action Remington 700s were kinda left out to dry. This year Magpul introduced a long action stock They have dubbed the 700L that Allows you to drop your 30-06 or 300 Win Mag long action 700 into one of these reasonably priced polymer stocks. The 700L is currently only offered in a right handed variant, lefty shooters are out of luck for now. I am sure that with enough demand Magpul will listen to the market as they always do.

The 700L features M-Lok slots that accept a ton of accessories already on the market, kind of an exciting feature because the M-Lok system is quickly gaining ground in the race between M-Lok and Keymod. The stock works with the standard hinged floor plates or you can install the optional AICS style bolt action magazine well that allows the use Magpul AICS pattern magazines. Not too long ago features like this would have cost a shooter a ton of money making the Hunter stock kind of a bargain. Magpul made sure that the stock was truly a drop in solution for shooters by making sure that the stock accepts all factory Remington barrel profiles. MSRP for the Magpul 700L is $279.95.

    I was kind of hoping that they’d get to Savage models first, but Savage owners are a patient bunch when it comes to aftermarket parts.

      But Savage’s guns are lame, stop being lame and get a Tika instead

        That is big talk from a Tikka guy who can’t spell. How many F-Class wins has Tikka had? Right thought so . . .
        Nothing wrong with Savage, you can spend a whole lot more money and not get any better of a gun.

          I’m a fan of CZ myself, I just suggested them as a budget alternative.

          But by all means, enjoy your pool noodle stock and fake bolt fluting.

      I want one for my savage axis in .308. Not sure how I feel about buying a $250 stock for a $250 rifle though, LOL.

      • iksnilol

        Eh, if it shoots well to deserve it then I see no problem.

      We have to be.

    Yea yea, of course the LA was coming. Now if Magpul gets on a Tikka stock, I’ll be interested. Similar in size and spacing to the 700 so I have to figure it’s coming.

    The most interesting part of this post was looking at the scope rings. It looks like the screws at the bottom of the ring are used to pull the top half of the ring down. This is a very clever design and very similar to the JDK Nimbus rings

    I certainly hope they make this for a Savage Long action. Nobody in the budget arena does that I can find, and as long as I live in Michigan a true long range precision rifle does not warrrant the expenditures that it might if I lived out west.

    Is the cheek piece and pistol grip the same on both sides of the stock? I’m a lefty, but I prefer a right hand bolt action for shooting from a rested position, and this stock would be just the ticket if it’s the same on both sides.

    • If they are the same as the shotgun stocks, yes.

      I know the cheek risers are interchangeable from the hunter stocks to the shotgun stocks, so I’m guessing they are reusing the back end of the design, which is pretty smart in my book.
