    WTB Remington 700 BDL Varmint Special Short Action w/ .308 Bolt Face

    Looking to re-live my past I suppose. Currently interested in all the old school short action blued steel & walnut rifles I grew up with as a kid. Looking for the 80's & 90s era 700 BDLs with gloss walnut stocks; both the varmint special and standard varieties. If not, I'll take the stocks for now... Anyone have any for sale? I can buy a rifle for 900 dollars or a stock for 150, thank you.

    My favorite 700s are the ones from the 70s and 80s. Walnut Stocks, nice checkering, forend tips etc. With the future of Remington still unfolding, I think most will be holding on to their 700s. Haven't seen an older one offered for sale on this site in a long time.

    the ,4703 bolt face is probably the most common, so that should not be an issue. For the older ones, I like the look of the long action too.

    I've seen a few earlier 700 BDL varmint barrel models on Gun Broker and Guns International. I believe they were 22-250, .243 and maybe have seen 308, if I'm correct that .308 could have been a special run ? I saw a late 60's 700 last week that had the earlier silver spacer under butt plate.

    I posted a link below of Remington catalogs you can research offering by model year.

    I had a 700 BDL Varminter in the 70s. Was in .22-250, which is the same bolt face as the .308 and both use a short action.

    The only old style rifles I have like that are Parker Hale Super 1200 and Mauser 4000s.
