GUNSTRUCTION’s Remington 700 Configurator Coming Soon

gunstruction-700-builder-575x322

AR15.com’s GUNSTRUCTION tool has released their latest platform for nearly endless customization. Their Remington Model 700 configuration tool is “coming soon”.

GUNSTRUCTION give users the ability to fully configure rifles using parts from companies that have paid to have parts placed within the catalog. Numerous companies participate including:

  • Troy
  • DPMS
  • Geissele
  • BCM
  • Vortex
  • LaRue Tactical
  • Bravo Company
  • MagPUl
  • DoubleStar
  • Battle Arms Development
  • Faxon
  • CMMG
  • Trijicon

The parts selections offer users a bevvy of options. Users are able to save their configurations and through the partnership with DuraCoat, see their dream firearm colored in virtual reality. Gunstruction also lists weights for all products and retail pricing with links to the manufacturer. We have played with it many times. 

The 700 builder will allow users to customize chassis, stock, grip, trigger, action, barrel, muzzle device, optic, bipod, and more.

GUNSTRUCTION can be used on desktop platforms through most browsers or is also available on mobile devices. Both Android and Apple app stores. The mobile apps may have a small purchase price.

Author’s recommendation: Use the mobile apps. The desktop version has a tendency to eat up memory and slow computers down. The mobile-optimized versions are fastest.

  • Does it allow you to customize between Remington triggers that fire intentionally or accidentally 🙂 joking…

    • hydepark

      You beat me to it! I was going to ask if it included graphic photos of what your face will look like when (when, not if) it randomly decides to shoot you. Do yourself a favor and get a different rifle.

      • Austin

        Oooh, or you could do what the majority of people custom-building a 700 do and drop an aftermarket trigger in there. No, wait, what am I saying? That way lies madness.

        • iksnilol

          Why bother with a company that doesn’t bother with making a product that works correctly?

          plenty of other functional rifles out there.

        Sounds like grouchy old men. The 700 was recalled when they found that mistake/ adjustment error. Don’t worry, every company has recalls. The XDs for example. It is actually desired over the drop ins that are made because you can achieve 2 pound trigger pull. Jealous? All I did was mention a trigger. You can criticize my comment, but you learned about a “walker” trigger today. You’re welcome for the history lesson and no matter what you say, you can’t unlearn it.

    • tonyton

      It’s the “walker trigger”. I have one and and it’s the coolest. An old 700 ADS. A gunsmith showed me how to adjust it and I accurized it and put on the scope. I think the troops kept requesting the “walker” trigger. I love it.

  • Evan

    So wait, is this just a theoretical thing? Or is this something that Remington (or someone else) will actually build and ship to your local FFL?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      It’s a part of ar15.com.

      The made an app/game where you can take all the parts and “build” your gun. To visualize what an W barrel with X rail and Y grip in Z color, etc will look like. Bec able to spin it around, and mess with the colors. They work with a bunch of vendors to get the packaging models of the parts, and align the orientations for you so its just a matter of selecting this or that part and it’s placed for you.

      It allows the vendors to get exposure, arfcom traffic, and of course all the references and links back and forth are marketing and advertising. They have traditionally had this only for AR15s, now they’re adding the configurations and models for R700 parts.

      It’s fine enough, although I don’t really like custom builds like that personally. If BCM or a handful of other companies don’t offer the upper you want pre-made, there is probably a good reason I think.

      Most people would be better served with 8 hours of formal training and a basic Colt or BCM rather than 32 hours of tweaking their “dream guns” that cost much much more. Same goes for long guns, if you aren’t comfortable behind a $1000 rifle, a $3000-5000 rifle is only going to be wasted on you. 99% of people building their “dream 700” would be better served with a stock Tikka or a 700 AAC or even a Ruger American / RPR.

        Gotta love Tikka’s, got one myself second coming up soon 🙂

  • KestrelBike

    Oh damn wait till the boys at my local 20yd indoor range see what I’m gettin’!

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Too much truth.

      Stock adjusts 7 ways, puts a $300 BDC scope on it.

  • AmericanRemnant

    Sounds like the one Desert Tech has. Didn’t take long for a 15K rifle to appear.
