I bought mine new from local Garth Brothers. They have since changed their name to Academy Sports. Both were and are a small sporting goods store chain.

I can't find my receipt but as best as I can remember it was about ten years ago.

It is a varmint rifle and not a special police sniper rifle. At the time I could have pick a 22-250 or 223. I went with 223.

A few year latter at another LGS I found a used left hand Remington 700 in 308. This one has fluted barrel a desert tan stock with palm swell. Both have 26 inch barrels.

Who ever set up that scope did not know what they were doing. Besides the wrong bolts it is way to high off the receiver.

I have some really big ass optics on both rifles and never are or need to be that high up. On the 223 it is a Burris 8-32 Signature and on the 308 it is a Burris XTR-624 in Burris XTR 30mm rings.

For the original intent of post it is nothing more that a heavy barrel varmint rifle in 308 and should be priced as such. Deduct for rings that will need to be replaced with correct size.

FWIW, when I see a gun that has stupid on it I really check to see that no other stupid was done such as bad trigger job. Mounting a scope is easy Gun 101 so if one can't do it or know the difference then did they properly maintain "lock stock and barrel"?
maybe the first guy had a huge chin and need rings that tall

You noticed that too!

It is the only rifle I seen where you need sand bags under AND on top.

I said somewhere on the first page I'd trash those things. Those look like a solid 2". Tallest rings I've ever seen on a bolt action. I wouldn't even want to take that thing out.

OP what's the specs of your scope? I have a set of leupold rings and mount I'll give you. They're for a 1" scope. I don't know where I came across them, but even the base will fit and you'd have to get new rings. You have to ditch those monsters.

I might even have some 34mm rings somewhere. I'm not going to go digging tonight though.

I think I was going to buy a ziess scope years ago and it had a 1" tube. I can't remember? These are cheap, but it'll get you by till you can upgrade

Rings

Base

I just fixed the correct ring size. It might not fit your scope and you might be able to trade them in at your local gun shop for something that fits.

The guy that designed the 700 freely admitted it had a design flaw, over 60 years ago.

If anyone mentions the rings again I'm going to go crazy!

I get it about the rings. Not a big deal. I mentioned that was being taken care of, and isn't a concern.


The struggle is the model. Remington said that in 2001 the 700P came with the webbed stock. That's what is interesting. This IS the factory stock.

It is not a varmint rifle. It is a 700 Police. Remington knows best. I just don't know why they did this stock design here...kindastrange

Fine. It is worth what ever you are willing to pay for it with your money.

Enjoy.
