Re: Project "M-Faux-ty"

For some reason, my pics in my initial post (from before the forum switchover a couple years ago) won't show up, and I can't MAKE them show up in that post (it keeps telling me they're too big, even though I resized them to proper specs).

Let's try again fresh:

Re: Project "M-Faux-ty"

Well, I finally got the rifle in hand, and I was a little disappointed. The barrel date places it as being built in March 1977 (about 10 years later than what I had hoped for ) so while it DOES have a lot of parts I need for the build, and an otherwise good receiver, the serial number is not going to be in the correct range for a 100% clone as I had originally hoped for. Still, it will hopefully be pretty accurate otherwise (unless I can find a stripped receiver in the correct s/n range while working on the other parts).

Worked on stripping the stock down over the last couple of days. Man; is that Remington finish TOUGH! I'll get it off there, one way or the other, though. Where'd I leave that belt sander laying around at?

Re: Project "M-Faux-ty"

Here's how it's coming along so far...

Still have a LONG way to go with this project. I just now am in the process of also getting a second 700 for this; the second one is a .223 heavy barrel BUT it has the correct serial number range for the original rifles, plus the short bolt shroud, safety, etc. to get the "right" parts for it. By combining that one's bolt shroud, safety and receiver (after truing it up and doing the correct clip-slot mods and "U.S." marking with the first one's .308 bolt, modified ADL stock and magazine body, adding a correct profile M40 barrel and a set of Whicita sling swivels and the green Redfield 1" 3x-9x scope and M40 base and rings, it *should* eventually come out pretty darn close, anyway. But at least, here's my update on the project.
