  1. Remington think’s just by adding a lot of letters to describe the actual product is going to make it better. LMAO

  2. Okay, Dan, seriously — what in the hell is the resistance to at least getting an editor to read over these things before you post them?

    In this article, you spell “SIXSITE” at least three different ways: SISXITE in the title, and in the second sentence you call it “SIXSITE” and “SIXITE”.

    I’ve seen this type of thing complained about dozens of times on this site. Show some pride in your work, y’know?

    • “Blueprinted” is a word that is now bandied about like so many other gun terms.

      When first used by gunsmiths, what we meant was that the action & bolt were given some TLC to true them up to the center axis of the receiver. This took some skill and a lathe.

      First, what we do is put the receiver on a mandrel and take a facing cut on the receiver. If this were a Winchester, Mauser or Springfield action, this would be most of what we’d have to do to make sure the barrel would be co-axial with the receiver. But noooooo – not on a Remington.

      Then we have to surface grind the recoil lug, which is used as washer between the barrel and receiver, because Remington didn’t want a thread relief on the barrel.

      Then we mount the receiver in an action fixture, we dial in with a test indicator on the front of the receiver that we just cut on a mandrel, then take a pass at cutting the threads a tad deeper, just to true up the threads. This means that you won’t be able to use a pre-threaded Remington barrel; you’ll be cutting the tenon on a barrel to match your receiver.

      Now, let’s turn to the bolt. We can put the bolt into a LaBounty bolt figure, dial it in and we then true up the bolt face. Take out the Remington extractor – just figure on putting in a M16 or other style extractor instead.

      If the slop between the bolt and the receiver is bad, we might ream out the bolt raceway and then sleeve the bolt – or, we could do that in the first place and just buy an over-sized bolt to slip into the receiver.

      See how much work this can get to be? All this to true up an action that, if Remington had decided to charge a couple hundred more for the action, would have been done at the factory.

      Here’s my take on blueprinting: Unless you got a Remington 700 action for a song (like $200 or less), quit talking about blueprinting and just go buy a custom, 700-compatible action from someone else.

      There’s a half dozen 700-compatible actions out there, for prices between $900 and $1800, that will be true from the get-go when you get them. Thread a barrel, stick it onto the action, headspace it and get working on the stock. The only ‘smiths who can “blueprint” a 700 receiver fast and cheap are the guys who have sunk $700 into tooling from PTG or Dave Manson, and these tools have mandrel pilots which go into the bolt raceway and they re-cut the threads and face the receiver all in one shot, without having to dial it in twice on a lathe. 15 minutes and the receiver is “blueprinted.” Then you need to work on the bolt, and you’re done.

        • What, build you a new rifle from high quality parts, or blueprint a Rem700?

          NB in my description there is an assumption that you cannot take apart an existing 700 rifle, blueprint it and hang the old barrel back on. The barrel tenon threads will now be too small on the major diameter, so you will need a new barrel, so that might add $300+ to the cost of the job right there.

          Unless you have a Remington rifle that is shot out and ready for re-barreling, I don’t recommend taking apart a 700 with acceptable performance to blueprint it and then put it back together.

  3. At that price, I could have my choice of custom actions, a single-point cut barrel, and a pretty nice stock – and then have money left over.
