Thanks. Just picked up the SPS a week ago.
Had no idea there was a board dedicated to the 700 until I started researching the SPS.

Hey M24shooter, what scopes are you using on those rifles? And what mounts and rings? They look like very professional, very accurate rifles. Give us some range data as far as loads and groups you have shot with these rifles. I am interested.

Sincerely,
Dave (Bubba) Thornblom

Welcome to the forum. My guess is mil/mil Super Sniper HD on the SPS.
Those look like serious shooters. I know you will be impressed with the SPS.
I'm seriously jealous. ;)

Thanks for the welcome guys.
The M24 has a Lupi M3LR 2.5-10x40 in MkIV rings and the MkIV one piece base. It will go sub MOA, I think the best I've done on it is right under 1/2" at 100. It likes the 168 FGMM.
BK, you're right: the SPS T has the SS 3-9x42 FFP in Badger rings and 20MOA base. I've only had it for a week, and the glass a couple of days. I just ran M80 through it along with some junk rounds so I don't know what it will do yet.
I'm going to try some M118LR and handloads for both to see how those do.
I hope to have a Badger or CDI DBM on the SPS T along with a Badger knob and probably a Vortex in the next few weeks. The barrel threading/Vortex is being done with the intent of a can down the road.

Nice rifles! The SPS will like the 168's as well... at least mine does! :D

Does the M24 carry that heavy barrel contour all the way out to the muzzle? I know on my SPS it seems to tapper down just slight as it extends from the receiver to the muzzle.

Yes. It is .930" at the muzzle. At 24" it makes for a very heavy rifle.
That is part of why I got the SPS T. I wanted something along the lines of M24-lite.

Even with the 20" barrel, she's still pretty heavy to pack, but boy does she shoot!

Stock is being worked on at CDI for the DBM kit. No pics of that, but here's the actual DBM and AI mags.







Here's the barrel threading and Vortex, and the bolt handle turned down for the knob.





Should have the parts back together late next week. Had to order a new trigger because UPS broke mine in shipping.
When I get the stock back I'm going to open up the barrel channel.

Welcome to the community. Nice rifles. I think I have seen you pics on another sight. Or some pretty close to them anyway.

Thank you.

The SPS T as it currently is.

Added a Triad/Eagle Large Stock Pack, Badger bolt knob, Harris S pod with Podlock and Tank's Speed Knob, an SEI Vortex, CDI DBM kit for AICS mags, SS 3-9x42 FFP, Badger rings and Badger 20 MOA base.





The trigger and safety are SS. This is not the stock trigger. When I had the rifle shipped off for the work it was not packed properly. The trigger broke, and I had to come up with a replacement. So I got a 5R takeoff trigger. This is temporary until I get the trigger I actually want on here.





The Vortex. Had this put on pretty much as a thread protector. I intend to put a HVT can on here in the next few months.

I haven't decided yet. I'm leaning towards a stock Remington 700 trigger that they used prior to the current external adjustables. Maybe a Basix.
The Remington trigger does not have a good reputation for high round count/hard use. It will not stay adjusted to the desired weight. The old triggers were much better.
