The Remington 700 is the work horse of today’s rifleman.  It was was action of choice for the Marine M40 Sniper Rifle for many good reasons.  It is strong, rugged reliable and most of all, naturally accurate.  It is still the action of choice as a foundation for today’s most accurate rifles.  Remington Arms does a fine job producing these rifles but they can only do so much and still produce an affordable rifle.  Just like everything else, the devil is in the details and this is where we shine.  As a professional gunsmith since 1979, I have seen fads come and go.  I have seen what works and what does not.  I have looked at countless rifles from the stand point of “What should be done to this rifle to make it more accurate, more reliable and more in tune for the specific task at hand”

 

Depending on your needs we offer 2 levels of accurizing services to Remington 700 rifles.  All Remington 700s fall into one of two categories light/sporter or heavy/target.  The light/sporter models are confined to only level 1 (unless the barrel is replaced).  Because the taper of the  light/sporter barrel starts immediately at the recoil lug and tapers quickly to a sporter weight there is not enough barrel material to remove all of the original threads and cut new ones.  The heavy/target models such as, but not limited to, the Sendero, VLS, VSF, or BDL Varmint are suited to both levels of our accurizing services.

    Accuracy Diagnostic    $50.00

The best accuracy possible is everybody's goal. Our 29-point diagnostic is the straightest line to that goal. Many times the diagnostic process itself drastically enhances accuracy.. Each diagnostic begins by first measuring all critical tolerances such as the bore diameter, groove diameter and throat diameter and length.  With the use of optical inspection equipment the condition of the bore’s surface is checked along with the condition of the barrels crown.  Also important is the consistency of the bore diameter and consistency of the twist.  Chamber casting will open windows onto any flaws or irregularities in the chamber and throat.  After that the rifle is carefully disassembled.  As the rifle is disassembled we look for anything that might impair accuracy, such as poorly torqued scope mount or guard screws or stress torqued into an assembly.  Vibrations are the result of a lack of rigidity or from stress resulting from the poor relationship of a rifle's different components or subassemblies. Through the use of dial indicators these problems are identified and solutions can be recommended. Many times these problems are reduced or eliminated during reassembling.  Some problems are not as easy. Poor chamber work can be devastating to good accuracy. The best match grade barrel and pillar bedded stock will never yield good accuracy if your chamber has a crooked, or over size throat.  Each of the 29 points are checked or measured then given a grade of 1 to 5, 5 being perfect.
