How to install a Remington 700 stock

The Remington 700 is one of the most popular rifles among hunters, sport shooters, and military and law enforcement personnel. It's known for its accuracy, reliability, and durability, and has been in production for over 50 years. One of the key features of the Remington 700 is its ability to be customized and upgraded with aftermarket stocks and chassis.

Why it's important to upgrade your Rem700 stock 

First, let's take a closer look at the stock of the Remington 700. The stock is the part of the rifle that holds the action and barrel, and provides a comfortable and stable platform for the shooter to hold and aim the rifle. The original stock of the Remington 700 is made of wood or synthetic material, and while it may be functional, it may not meet the needs of every shooter.

One of the main reasons to upgrade the stock of your Remington 700 with a new aftermarket stock or chassis is to improve the ergonomics and comfort of the rifle. An aftermarket stock or chassis can be customized to fit the shooter's body and preferences, resulting in a more comfortable shooting experience.

A new stock or chassis can also provide a more stable shooting platform, reducing recoil and improving accuracy. Another reason to upgrade the stock of your Remington 700 is to improve the rifle's accuracy. An aftermarket stock or chassis can improve the rigidity of the rifle's barrel, resulting in less flex and better accuracy. It can also reduce vibration, which can affect accuracy at longer ranges.

In addition to improving comfort and accuracy, upgrading the stock of your Remington 700 can also provide additional features and functionality. For example, ours aftermarket stocks and chassis may have adjustable cheek rests, allowing the shooter to obtain the proper cheek weld and improve accuracy. Some aftermarket stocks or chassis may also have built-in rail systems, allowing for easy attachment of accessories like bipods or sling swivels.
