    Re: rem 600 base thanks Jerry. after looking and searching every possible angle, i believe i've figured out that the 3 holes of the 600 line up with 3 of the 4 of a 700 short action? this being the case i can get any 700 short action base, and just deal with there being only 3 screws...

    Gunsmithing rem 600 base

    my build using the 600 action is slowly comming along. onto the base issue.. seems aluminum is my only option perhaps? I would be ok with aluminum if the slots were full width, but after looking at an EGW base, not enough meat there for me. Got ahold of them and after a wait for their "HD"...

    Gunsmithing triggers to fit 600

    Re: triggers to fit 600 im assuming you perhaps have seen or done this? im curious what it is about certain triggers that would prevent them from working where others would. if the only real issue is the trigger bow, which is a non-issue with me as im going to place my own trigger guard in...

    Gunsmithing rem 700 trigger fit 600?

    Re: rem 700 trigger fit 600? thats what i was leaning toward, a rifle basix. I'm assuming i'd have to buy a 700 safety to go along with it, but maybe you could tell me if the factory safety would fit? not sure i would want the looks of the factory safety tho.. just thinking out loud
