8 Cheap Ways To Upgrade Your Remington 700

Don't want to break the bank? Here's a list of eight accessories that will upgrade your Remington 700 while staying under budget.

Nothing compares to the feeling of lining up a string of shots that result in a single (more or less) ragged hole in the target. The satisfaction one feels from a tight shot grouping comes from hard work, practice and preparation. Throwing lead downrange at distance with pinpoint accuracy can be challenging on many different levels. As a shooter, one has to deal with a myriad of environmental conditions, work up suitable cartridge loads and even manage one’s own body to perform efficiently.

Precision shooting can be challenging, but getting your rifle outfitted doesn’t need to be. It wasn’t long ago that upgrading a precision bolt gun meant spending thousands of dollars at a specialized gunsmith. Over the past few years, aftermarket companies have created a whole host of off-the-shelf parts dedicated to the home armorer that allow them to upgrade and effortlessly outfit their rifles to fit their needs with nothing more than a few common hand tools.

If you are looking to upgrade your Remington Model 700 rifle, you’ll want to take a look at Magpul’s line of Hunter 700 stocks. Available for both short and long actions, the Hunter 700 stock is made for those who want to add more adjustability options to their rifles without spending a small fortune. It is fully adjustable for length of pull and comb height, and it requires no bedding, making it easy to install and maintain. In fact, it only took us about five minutes to swap stocks for the rifle seen here.

Compatible with standard Remington 700-pattern rifles, the Hunter 700 stock is made of reinforced polymer with a Type III hard-anodized, A380 cast-aluminum V-bedding block core. The forward portion of the stock features M-LOK slots on the sides and bottom for attaching a wide range of desired accessories.

Along with the stock, we further upgraded our 20-inch-barreled, .308 Winchester-chambered Remington 700 SPS Tactical with a Nikon Monarch 7 scope, a Badger Ordnance scope base and rings, as well as a Caldwell bipod. Our upgrades came in just under a trending street price of $1,700. For those who want to go suppressed (and who wouldn’t?), we went with a Dead Air Sandman-L sound suppressor that nudged the overall price to just more than $2,600.

Check out the cost breakdown of each part in the accompanying list, and then you can easily modify your Remington 700 bolt action to fit your needs. It’s that simple.
