Brownells is selling virgin Remington Model Seven actions. This is the first time I’m aware of them being sold as a stand alone action. Until now, you had to buy a rifle and cannibalize it to get the action.
The tenon dimensions are similar to Remington 700, but the bolt is shorter. Bases are different and you’ll need a model 7 stock. This action is branded by Advanced Armament Company (AAC), has a 223 bolt face and includes a 20 MOA rail and attaches with 8-40 screws (not the 6-48 screws found on a standard Model 7). I’ve seen a few of the 300 AAC Blackout rifles Remington built for AAC and they were pretty nice.
A great action for a lightweight build at a reasonable price. Quite a few model 7 stocks out there.
Available from AAC, these Remington Model 7 Receivers are ready for your next custom build. Featuring a matte black phosphate finish and “stamped text” engraving, these Receivers were specifically built to AAC’s specifications. Receiver includes EGW 20 MOA Picatinny Base, which attaches via four 8-40 screws (included). Receiver also includes a 223 bolt, which also functions perfectly with 300 Blackout. Included trigger is a recently inspected X-Mark Pro (includes inspection mark).
Model 7 Receivers are compatible with Model 7 stocks only. Model 7s are compatible with Remington 700 barrels and recoil lugs. Not compatible with traditional Model 7 bases and rings that accept 6-48 screws. Non-compatible bases include 749-004-990, 526-261-700, and 749-003-657.
