Pictured below is my 1985 Remington Model 700BDL chambered in 7mm Rem Mag with a 24" barrel.



The 700BDL is a manually-operated bolt action with 2 forward dual-opposed lugs and a rear safety lug formed by the bolt handle lug sitting in a receiver recess. The bolt face is recessed, fully enclosing the base of the cartridge, and the extractor is a C-clip sitting within the bolt face. The ejector is a plunger on the bolt face actuated by a coil spring. The bolt is of 3-piece construction, brazed together (head, body and bolt handle). The receiver is milled from round cross-section steel. Depending on caliber, the internal magazine holds either 3, 4, or 5 cartridges and has a flush floor plate for quick unloading. The rifle can also be ordered with a detachable box magazine.

I've owned several Remington over the years. All of them were good shooters.
My first was a Remington 03-A3 with 2 groove rifling.
The others that come to mind are as follows;
2ea. 760 Rem Pumps. Both shot well but both had very heavy triggers and when rested across my support arm in the woods, the exposed mag tube became uncomfortable. They were the older style with the acorn mag tube cap and the 9 locking lug bolts.

760 pump in 270 win.
760 pump in 30-06 with a Weaver Tip-Over Scope Mount.
Model #7 in 223
Model 722 in 222
Model 700 BDL in 6mm-284.

Wow...that's a lot of Remy's Grey !!

To tell you the truth, I have a spreadsheet to keep track of all my firearms...all the ones I currently have...and the very few I sold ( and regret selling ).

Pictured below is kind of a rarity in the hunting rifle circle...a Remington 7600 pump action rifle chambered in 30.06 Springfield. It has a 22" barrel and can be stored with the hammer down, magazine loaded, and chamber empty. To make it ready to shoot quickly, the user would only need to pump the slide. It was my very first hunting rifle...

my remington M700 in 270 winchester. this rifle was a POS when i bought it. but i saw potential in it. it has a aftermarket walnut stock that had some home made checkering and looked like someone used a course brush to apply the clear coat on it. next to no blueing left on any of the metal, but the action was tight and smooth and the bore was in good condition. i removed all the finish on the stock and removed all the checkering and sanded it down to 320 grit sandpaper, then applied some dark walnut stain, and then rubbed it out with Johnson's paste wax. i then removed what was left of the blueing, and polished with fine steel wool. the finish on the metal is an experiment i'm trying out. i found some epoxy appliance paint at Lowes, in stainless steel color. i warmed up all the metal with a propane torch, then applied two coats to the action and barrel. so far after shooting and the handling it's gone through, pretty good.

Love the camo finish on that ADL, and by the sound and look of it, a real nice re-finish job on the .270 !

Except for the ones that went to my son, I've sold all my Remington over the years.
Here are attachments of a couple more that are past history.
The Rifle is the 700 ADL in 6mm-284 that I spoke of. This was over 30 years ago.
I've also sold at least 3 Remington Shotguns over the years. A 12 ga. 870, a 12 ga. 11-87 Sporting Clays and the attached 20 ga. 1100 Special Field w/ 2 barrels.

Well I did it Again! Another Remington M700!

well i couldn't help myself! i bought another Remington M700. this one in 30-06. i went yesterday looking for another 30-06 rifle for a project and found a M700 in 30-06. funny thing is, it matches the M700 in 270 i bought several months ago, and i bought them both at the same pawn shop. it has the same aftermarket walnut stock and both were in the same condition. i checked the date codes on the barrel, the 270 wass made in 1969 and the 30-06 was made in 1971. i am led to believe these two rifles came out of the same collection. i have already started the process of stripping and cleaning to get it ready to refinish. i ordered a new recoil pad and some new rings for it. i will post some before pictures later on tonight.

Remington M700 30-06 makeover.

here are some before and during shots of the M700 30-06. last one willbe a picture of it's twin, M700 270 Win. that i bought several months ago. it too looked like the before pictures of the 30-06, only worse. more to come later, as i will be ordering a new recoil pad, scope and sling for it. once i get the trigger remounted, i will adjust it for the less trigger pull weight.

This is an early eighties 700BDL in 30-06. My father in law left it to me when he passed. In 20 years I put fewer than 200 rd through it and always chose my Win 94 for hunting and bear defense. I traded it off for my Blackhawk about six months ago. Dick left my middle son a Rem 22 bolt gun (I don't recall the mod). It is a very sweet shooter, and can approach MOA precision from a rest.

thanks Shooter! nice looking older BDL there Duster!

mine is a work in progress and was bought mainly because of the caliber and that it appears to be out of the same collection as the 270 i bought several months ago and refinished. the 30-06 had more rust pitting on the barrel than the 270 did. the 270's barrel and action cleaned up nicely with just some steel wool and Kroil. i tried the same with the 30-06, but the pitting was too deep. so after filling the sight screw holes and filing them down, i used J-B weld to to fill the pits and then let it cure and smoothed them down before refinishing the barrel. i am using high temp BBQ satin black on this barrel to see how it holds up to use and abuse. more to come later.

Remington R-1 Enhanced 1911 45acp

well last weekend i did some trading with a very dear and close friend of mine that i have known for over 20 years. he wanted another 1911 really bad and had bought a SA XD45 several months ago at a gun show. well he just wasn't happy with it so i ended up trading him my American Classic II 1911 for the XD45. well yesterday i traded the XD45 for a new Remington R-1 Enhanced 1911. it shoots good, feels good in the hand and i am starting like it more and more everytime i shoot it. here are some pictures of it and some of the first practice shots.

the first target is 230gr cast lead bullets. the second target is some 200gr Hornady XTP's i reloaded. these were shot at 10 yards. the circle in the target is 3" in diameter at the outer.

That's a fine looking 1911 - and it's a shooter as well. :))
