The 700P stock is all black. That mottled stock is for an older Varmint Synthetic.

As far as rings and bases...

Hard to go wrong with Talley...Leupold....Warne...

As a previous poster suggested...I would have the rings lapped as well so you have as much metal touching metal as possible...

Depending on what your intentions are for the rifle (I'm presuming long-range target)...you could always go with the Leupold quick detach system if you wanted to be able to stow the scope away from the rifle when not in use...trust me these are NO gimmick..the work...and will return your scope to zero despite taking the scope on and off.

Best of luck!

I do appreciate the effort though

What you have isn't a tws. I can't remember the model off the top of my head, but I'll find out.

Im probably getting it for around 700 with everything pictured.

It's for sure not a 700p. I'd pay about 500 for that thing. 700 will dang near buy you a new one. I'd throw that scope, rings, base in the trash. Your buddy doesn't even know what it is. There's no telling what kind of stuff that's seen.

Not a 700p. Probably a 700VS.

+1 on ditching those rings, if LaRue is a choice, LaRue is the answer.

I know that they have had tons of injuries and problems associated with the rem700 trigger mech. I own a Rem700 in 243 and it has been a very reliable and accurate rifle but I no longer hunt with it since I have not upgraded the trigger.

Don't take the safety off when you have pressure on the trigger and it won't fire. No reputable testing entity has been able to duplicate the NBC reported failures without cheating, as they are believed to have done.

Agreed. I have had several 700s for a lot of years and never had any issue. I think the NBC thing was pretty much proved a scam.

Documentation!?!?!?!?!?
List of just 20 injuries, please????

I do believe these 'tons of injuries' are from users/basement gunsmiths 'tinkering' (aka/ F'n with) their triggers.

Same here.
I've NEVER had an issue with any of my Remington 700 rifles.
Never.

Friend.. I am not really inclined to try and convince anyone of anything.

I have made comments here for more than a decade and all were made for the purpose of honest, fruitful debate or honest information sharing. Due to the enormity of the reports that relate to the Rem700 trigger, I felt it reasonable to mention it. The information is out there if anyone wants to research it, I wont do it for them.

That is not how it works. You made an allegation. It is upon you to support your point.

There is a distinct difference between [information sharing] and debate. I am not trying to prove to anyone that the 700 is hazardous. Anytime NBC wants to put a spotlight on a safety concern, I will give it reasonable consideration. I may pass down my rifle at some point and since that is my particular circumstance, I will upgrade the trigger. If others have watched or read about the reported issues with the 700 and ultimately decide that its not a problem, that's fine as well. As I said many times over the years, I offer my comment with good intentions and they are always free.

A Rem 700 VS in .308 is probably a poor man's sniper rifle.

I had a few VS's in years past (.308, .243, .223), and the stock forearm is very wide for shooting off of a bench. I didn't like carrying them all that much.

They do shoot well.

Called Remington!
It is a 2001 Remington 700 Police.
No doubt about it.
I was surprised. I was almost convinced it was a 700VS.

Was it re-stocked? That is the only one I have seen with that stock.
