Remington Model 700 Customizations
Sat through a second video today, this time it was "AGI BUILDING THE TACTICAL OR VARMINT RIFLE". This was looked like a pretty old transfer but the quality wasnt bad. For the most part I found the video very interesting. The author Darell Holland takes you through the process of building a custom rifle based on a V block bedded Remington 700 action and a McMillan stock. For the most part he does a good job taking you through the process in detail with much explanation as to "Why". I really enjoyed the simplicity of his shop. A milling machine, small lathe and a bead blaster was all he used. No special jigs and fixtures. This video is great for anyone who would like to know how to do the process from start to finish. I think this is one of the better AGI video's. If you have access to these metalworking machines an indicator, chamber reamer and a few basic tools this videi will instill the confidence to build a rifle.
These days Remington does a fine job manufacturing accurate rifles. However there may come a time when the old model 700 is not shooting groups as tight as it once did or maybe you just want the best accuracy that can be achieved from your rifle. A replacement barrel is a good investment. Its like getting a new and more accurate gun at half the price.
All barrels for a Remington model 700 will be required to be fitted to some degree by a gunsmith. If you choose a barrel such as the Shilen it requires the least amount of work as it is pre threaded with a cut chamber. This means it only needs reamed to the final dimension. Other barrels are purchased as blanks and must be cut to length, threaded and have the chambers cut and reamed for your desired caliber. In many cases the barrel will require some sort of coloring or protective coating as many barrels are sold "in the white".
Note: There are no drop in barrels for a Remington 700. All replacement barrels must be fitted and headspaced by a qualified gunsmith.

From the fine folks who developed the ARCTIC WARFARE rifles comes the REMINGTON 700 AICS chassis system. THE AICS is designed for those who want the absolute best platform for their REMINGTON 700 MATCH or SNIPER RIFLE.
Accuracy International was started in 1978 by a group of national and international target shooters, one of which was a two time Olympic Gold Medalist. Designed by shooters, for shooters, the Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS) presents Remington 700 owners with an advanced chassis system that is not only superbly functional but ergonomically inclined as well. The rugged platform of the AICS combines the leading characteristics of steel and polymer. Featuring a full-length, aluminum, self-aligning, self-bedding vee block this system more than supersedes traditional bedding practices.
- Full Length Aluminum Chassis: Attached to the action via two bolts (included); features a self-aligning vee block bedding system.
- Folding Chassis: The 2.0 AICS features a rapid deployment folding feature which is actuated by pulling the stock in the rearward position. When folded, the overall length of the 2.0 is reduced by 8" however this option adds .4lbs to the weight of the AICS. The 1.5 AICS is exactly the same as the 2.0 except it features a fixed stock.
- Stocksides: Polymer stock sides encapsulate the aluminum chassis. The polymer sides provide for a secure grip, are impervious to regular cleaners/lubricants and are available in black, green or dark earth.
- Adjustable Cheekpiece: Ambidextrous for right or left hand shooters. Adjustable for height as well as windage (left and right), this cheekpiece optimizes cheek weld for a superior shooting experience.
- Buttpad: Includes two spacers with widths of .4" and .8" in order to create a customized length of pull specific to the user.
- Sling Attachment Points: Four sling swivel attachment points (two per side) allow for multiple sling mounting positions.
- Magazine: Included with the AICS is a flush fitting 5-round detachable magazine manufactured from industry-leading corrosion resistant steel.
- The 1.5 Short Action AICS weighs 5.55 lbs, the 2.0 Folding Chassis option adds an additional .4 lbs
- The 1.5 Long Action AICS weights 5.75 lbs, the 2.0 Folding Chassis option adds an additional .4 lbs
- Barrel Channel: Accommodates a barrel up to 1-1/4" in diameter.
