I got this for my Remington SPS Tactical, and I am thinking I got a pretty good deal. Let me know what you think please. It shot well with the Houge, but I am thinking this one will suit it much better.

Ebay Item: 250668831310

I priced them new with Midway USA at:

$316 - Stock
$278 - Bottom Metal with Detachable Mag

Am I looking at this right?

You'll still want to bed the stock to optimal performance. Plenty of posts on that.

But to answer your question, it does seem like a good deal. You will find out if it is money well spent when you assemble everything together and see how it shoots.

Afraid not....and I hate to burst your bubble.

What you got on E-Bay is a H-S Precision Stock made for a Factory Remington DBM System w/ the factory Rem. DBM system and mag box. The square cutout in the stock identifies it as such. It is definitely not H-S Precision Bottom and DBM which costs $278.

Here is a old picture of my 700 LTR (same action as the SPS) with an H-S stock and H-S Precision DBM installed:

See no mag box cutout.


Sorry,

Bob

Re: Good Deal? Remington 700 stock and bottom metal

I think anytime you can pick up an HS Precision stock with bottom metal included for around 250 you got a pretty good deal. The stocks by themselves sell fairly regularly for over 200 bucks and I see them go for close to 250 fairly often too. Floorplates will go for 60-80 bucks. So the way I see it, worse case you paid a reasonable price, best case you got a free floorplate.
