Remington Model 700 - 270 Caliber Question

I have an older Remington Model 700 rifle that is my father-in-law's. I recently drove over it & broke the stock in two (I know....what a stupid thing to do...but that's where I'm at).

I am trying to buy a replacement stock off of Ebay but I need to know if I have a long action or a short action. Can someone tell me what the specific difference is between the two & how I can tell what I have? Or where can I go to find out?

Thanks,
The Ignorant Son-in-Law.

You have a long action rem700. Hope that helps. Did you bend the barrel??

I don't think I bent it....the stock just snapped in half right behind the trigger. Should I look more carefully to make sure I didn't bend any metal? I'm not seeing anything that's visible....

Are all Rem Model 700's in that caliber long action? I've seen quite a few Model 700's on Ebay that are referred to as short action.

Yes, all .270 Wins are long action. They are necked down .30-06 rounds. The .270 WSM, OTOH, is a short action as is the .308 Win and .243 Win.

On a side note, here's some info about a safety issue for Remington 700 rifles regarding the bolt lock.

You'll also need to know if it's an ADL or a BDL. The BDL has a magazine floorplate, the ADL doesn't.

  • This problem can be cured by a gun owner who is handy with tools and owns a dremel or similar tool. Cut the locking portion of the safety assembly to allow the bolt to be opened and round removed with the action cocked. BTDT.

Relax and forget E-bay. They're anti-gun. Rem 700 stocks aren't hard to find. Gunparts carries long action stocks in assorted styles for $62.95 or less. http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem. ... l=0860z700
