If so, I'd like to call your attention to some rifles that were built by X-werks which feature this rifle base:
(I hope I am allowed to post a link to that website on this forum, if not I apologize and will remove the link)
As you can see from that link, a gun shop near where I conduct training has several 5R rifles which feature magpul hunter stocks, and cera koted finishes. Here is the description on one of them:
New in Box X-Werks Coated Custom Remington 700 5R in .308. This rifle started with a stainless 20” 1:11.25 5R twist threaded barrel and a Green/Black stock, Remington part # 85200. This rifle then had a Magpul FDE Cerakote finish applied to the barrel, bolt, action, and bottom metal, X-Werks is a professional finishing company located in Phoenix, AZ. The rifle was then dropped in a Black Magpul Hunter Stock with Magpul Bottom Metal and one magazine. Along with the coating the rifle has a 5/8x24 threaded barrel and X-Mark Pro adjustable triggers. Rifle does not ship with factory stock. Rifle ships as pictured.
On one of these rifles, does the rifle lose its factory accuracy as a result of having another stock attached to the barrel? Do you think the company that did that did an accuracy test on it like they do at Remington from the factory? I would like this rifle, because it's similar enough to the Army's sniper rifle and would look tactical in appearance and be reliable and accurate. I don't like that rifle in factory form with its ugly green stock
