Not long ago, the Remington 700 AAC-SD SPS Tactical was sought after by shooters looking for a highly customizable bolt action with a barrel that was factory threaded. Just about every time a shooter bought one of these rifles the factory Houge stock ended up being replaced at some point with a high-speed chassis like the AB Arms Mod*X or the MDT LSS Chassis.
In an effort to save the consumer some unneeded waste, AB Arms has ordered up a batch of barrel Remington 700 AAC-SD actions in .308.
So what does buying the barreled action save you? It doesn’t for some reason. Weird.
I really hate calling out shenanigans publicly, but I was able to find a complete Model 700 AAC-SD for less money at 4 internet retailers with a simple internet search. So. Shenanigans. I am not really sure why that is the case, but I don’t know if there is any good reason to buy just the barreled action for a premium seeing as you could sell the stock to someone or even use it to make a toy rifle for your neighborhood kids if you so desired.
