D King: For a little over $700 new, these rifles are just amazing... AND, after
seeing this vid and that you can do this mod, I'm now likely going this
route over the Savage 10 FCP-SR (although I still have my eye on a DPMS
SR25 Clone weight be dammed) I've had my eye on as I can build it to my
tastes and not have to "live with" the Desert Digi-Camo (pretty useless in
the Pacific NW). Great vid mate, thanks for taking the time aye.
rickey mullins: GREAT UPGRADE,I WILL DO THIS TO MY SAVAGE.
1hunterdale: there junk i use a rem. 30.06 pump with a 10 round clip
aiden waller: Where did you purchase the stock !?
BBouinfo: Talking about the trigger guard and internal magazine plate
BBouinfo: I don't know where you got yours but mine is just coated steel, scratch the
rim of it and you'll see its not polymer
The Firearms Brony: could I get this on a savage?
John Willis: arrrrghhhhhhh
David T: AR-10. 308, 25 rd mags, semi-auto. when my 5 rd model 7 Rem isnt enough.
although i just completed a 762x39 upper for my full auto AR-15 model 614.
SonOfSimon: For the price of three magazines, you could purchase a semi-auto rifle
chambered in .308 Win. I own one of these rifles, but the price of this
upgrade makes it far too impractical for me. Its undeniably cool, though.
FoodFolksandGuns: No problem. Go to stockysstocks(dot)com
FoodFolksandGuns: Thank you
mrbean2051: what website did you get the magazine and trigger guard and the stuff to
make it fit? i just bought a Remington vtr 700 in .223 and would like to
hold more than 4 rounds ! thanks
michael m: Thanks for the vid, something to consider while I'm in the market for a
Remington 700 or comparable.
FoodFolksandGuns: I did not do all this just to make loading easier.
sftwr314r8: Buy 2 piece pic rail mount for Rem 700 for $4.95 to make it easier to load
OR buy mag conversion kit and extra mag for ~$400.00
pv107: Classy. Lol.
FoodFolksandGuns: Well, I don't hunt so I don't need the extra punch and recoil of a magnum
cartridge. I still wanted something with .30 caliber power and accuracy,
and .308 is plentiful (and when I bought this rifle, the ammo was still
pretty inexpensive). So that was my thought process. Thanks!
Rick Sander: Great video! A little off topic, but I'm curious about the choice of 308
for your 700. I got the ruger american in 308 because it is a plentiful
military round. I want a 700 SPS next but was thinking of going with the
300 swm for the flatter trajectory and longer range - up to another 250
yards. Do you mind telling me your thoughts on 308 for this rifle? I need
FoodFolksandGuns: No, sorry. But they do make them for various Weatherbys and Savages.
FoodFolksandGuns: The bolt release has not been affected at all. Sorry, I misread your first
Ken Gram: THE WAY YOU HAVE THE SCOPE MOUNTED DEFEATS THE HOLE PURPOSE OF YOUR RIFLE I
DONT NO ABOUT YOU KIDS.
FoodFolksandGuns: Yes. It's a drop-in fit for the Remington 700 short action, so I don't see
any problem with it fitting the factory Hogue stock. But you should check
out my range report to see the kind of groupings I got with good ammo and
the new stock. lol
mgvr6: Remington needs to make these rifles come with detachable mags from the
factory. But if they do that how else are we going to get ripped off paying
for accessories etc?
cody harris: The gun is gorgeous! but can you have your bipod all the way down with the
10 round mag in? it looks like it would hit the table if the bipod was all
the way down and not extended, if you know what i mean
FoodFolksandGuns: I could definitely see that happening on a soft point with an exposed lead
tip. I do use a lot of polymer tipped Hornadys (A-Max).
dakota ryan: Is that bipod a Harris ?
FoodFolksandGuns: Yes. There is a long action version for .30-06 & .300 Win Mag. There's also
an XL version for .338 Lapua
snugmonster2: It's not dangerous. .308 SAAMI max pressure is 62K PSI, 7.62 NATO is 60.2K
PSI. Drunkenmick is closer. 7.62 NATO has thicker brass thus the chamber is
slightly larger. This does not pose a case rupture risk when firing .308
Win brass in a 7.62 rifles. However, 7.62 brass will to stick in many .308
bolt guns after discharge. I fired one round of Portuguese surplus 7.62
ball in my Rem 788 many years ago, lodging it so firmly it required a trip
to the gunsmith. No more 7.62 in this rifle.
tracmag: where is the bolt?
George Butcher: Say, young man do you think thy have one them kits for a 270 ruger American.
CharlyRomeo2009: They probably laughing at it I can imagine. LOL
Jay Brown: Hey that cool it looks nice, much better than the stock system
FoodFolksandGuns: I agree. All the quality gun accessories are usually overpriced. I'm used
to getting price gouged at the gas station and, sadly, I'm getting used to
it as a gun enthusiast.
Mike: Ya, why would you spend all that time fitting a magazine well and hardware,
when you could run down and pick up a two piece Weaver base from most gun
shops for $6? It looks cool... No reason to give a bull $hit reason. My
AR-10 has a 20 round magazine. Why?... Because I CAN!
drunkenmick: I'm afraid not. While 5.56 NATO is dangerous in a firearm only rated for
.223, it is the opposite with .308 and 7.62 NATO. The pressure difference
is honestly rather negligible. The major problem is that the thicker
webbing of the 7.62 cartridge means that a .308 commercial round is just a
bit thinner and could leave too much room around it, increasing the chances
of a case rupture. Today, nearly every commercially available firearm
chambered in .308 is manufactured to safely fit both calibers.
FoodFolksandGuns: Yes sir. A BR-2 if memory serves me.
FoodFolksandGuns: My thoughts exactly!
FoodFolksandGuns: It's a Bell & Carlson A2 Medalist.
ZVox Media: Thanks for making this. I'm a hi-capacity kind of guy and 4 rounds was just
not enough for me. I'm making the investment!
FoodFolksandGuns: Hmm, it could be a number of things. The stock (mine was synthetic), barrel
length, barrel design (this one's a bull barrel). If you have the 700
Police, it has the H-S Precision stock and either a 24" or 26" barrel.
FoodFolksandGuns: I almost bought a Caldwell but that extra $25 to get the Harris was well
FoodFolksandGuns: To the best of my knowledge, the Wyatt magazine is only available for the
Remington 700 family of rifles. The Ruger American is a pretty new model,
though, so that may change in the future.
FoodFolksandGuns: why are you yelling?
Kryen: should you though? because i've been looking around and am quite confused
whether or not you should be because of pressures and what not :S
FoodFolksandGuns: Overall, I like it. The only things I don't like are the follower/spring
system. The bullet/front end of the cartridge tends to get pushed way down
while the case head is tougher to push down. Also, removing the magazine
once the gun has heated up is a bit of a pain and gives you a sore thumb.
Tradeoffs for a drop in fit and lower price point.
van islander: isnt that accuracy international mag just an m14 mag? In canada its a
common thing to buy AI mags to use in our norinco m14s because law says you
can only have 5 rounds in a semi auto mgazine unless you get a mag from
something else thats more than 5 rounds and it fit in your gun. thats why
we buy 10 rounds .308 AI mags
FoodFolksandGuns: Thanks for the awesome tips. The detachable magazine has helped with the
problem, but I'll start looking for a 2 piece base with added MOA.
fordxbgtfalcon: beautiful rig! love the mag upgrade.
Hunter Yell: I have a Remington 700 .308 short action with an adl stock. Would it be
possible to buy a bdl stock and install the Wyatt system and my action into
the new stock and have a pretty good fit? Any information would be helpful.
Thanks! - Hunter
