Well I bid high and won a very nice new Remington 700 BDL stock. Barrel contour should match. Photos show nice grain and figure. Should get it in about a week. Now for the new BDL floorplate...... then the scope..... then a nice sling..... I hope when the rifle is all done with it's makeover that my Brother looks down and gives a thumbs up.

The amount of love that you're putting into it, I think that's a given. Post up some pics when you get the stock on.

Stock arrived, very very satisfied with it, seller was 100% accurate. Bidding on the floor plate now. This project is gonna be in the 500 range just doing a makeover. Ouch!!! I probably will only sight it in and put it in the vault but maybe my nephew will see the effort/value in his Dad's rifle someday.

An old rule that I just made up...

It is good for a rifle to get out shooting atleast once a year. This rule will be even better for the owner of the rifle. So for those with a safe full of nice rifles you have a date with each at least once a year. Better make up a spread sheet so you don't forget any of them. They all deserve to dance at the range...... This old rule, that I just made up also applies to your shotguns and your handguns.... Boy being a King would have been fun...

Lets see 2 guns per outing X # of firearms X cost per round + pain shot cost afterwords = a whole lot of range time and fun!!! You gotta shoot them to really enjoy them.

I bid on and won a floorplate with a boxed magazine. Started with an ADL and now a BDL with magazine. Thoughts are now on how much scope to put on it. I have about 5 guns that need to go to the range for sight-ins I'll try to make it a one time event and ice the shoulder for a few hours later.

Looks great.......

That turned out really nice, I think that it needs a new Redfield 3x9 to finish it off.....It is so pretty that the recoil pad will not be missed..

Karl, I've never been much on recoil pads. If I have to add one it's usually a thin solid one. I prefer none though.To tell you the truth, I don't have a clue as to the current quality of the new redfield line. I might look for an old one as I do know their quality, second to none. We'll see, thanks for the thumbs up!

Checkout the midway website for user feedback

I have used one of the new Revolution series in a 2x7 and it is very nice. The midway site has alot of positive feedback on the new Oregon made Redfield line. The users that have bought them compare them to Leopold's VX2 line, most like them better than the VX1 line. With the VX2s costing a lot more no wonder these are popular scopes. Also they are American made and that tips the scale for alot of shooters when comparing them to the Nikons at the same pricepoint.
