Remington stocks

Gidday guys and girls
I'm going to be the owner of a left handed Remington 700 sps 300 windy mag in a week or two and I'm looking at possibly changing the stock when I get it. That is if I don't like the sps stock, I hear they are abit flimsy? So just looking fir recommendations on a swap out stock. The rifle will be for hunting so keen to keep the weight down but not worried about abit of extra weight. I'm quite tall with huge hands so a decent size grip is always good. And I suppose something stream line for sneaking thru the bush. What are people's thoughts on the sps stocks can they be doctored up to a useable reliable standard? It's a cheap rifle so I don't want to be spending millions on it.
I hope something of the above made some sort of sense? Been a long day!

Re: Remington stocks
You can make this stock work. Our products will do it- have enough photos of this through the site and in the books. But this also goes into what I wrote about in the newsletter regarding the B&C WBY stock. People think slim is good so gun makers slim the barrel, but then slim the handle right down when they should go the other way.

The books have my favorite stock designs, see especially the rifle photo between the accurizing and maintenance sections of the Accurizing book. I think thats what you need to aim for with your hand size.

I am going to test the NZ made Apex soon. I have played with the prototype but I need to shoot this in .300 WM to really get a good feel. There has been so much work done on the grip ergonomics of this stock- I can't wait to have the .300 set up permanently with this. Am also looking forwards to the extended length forend so that the rifle can be dumped over a pack in a hurry, without fears of the barrel touching the pack. Also the angled sling studs. Iv'e had quite a bit of input into this stock design and it takes care of the things that normally really piss me off when shooting under pressure.

Re: Remington stocks
Awesome thanks Nathan I have a match grade kit and stabiliser sitting at home waiting to be used so if the stock fits ok I'll rip in to it and bed it.
Yes I'm on the same boat with you on that one Nathan, my cz swede has a great stock from the magazine back but the thin Chernobyl (I think that's the right spelling lol) forend is bloody miserable for me and my gorilla hands, not enough wood to hold on to and shooting over my back pack isn't a life changing experience. If it was in a high recoiling caliber it wouldn't be fun at all.
These new stocks are sounding like the bees knees keep us posted!

Re: Remington stocks
Sebastian. You could epoxy some extra wood/Composite onto the front and sides of the CZ stock and then shape it to suit your Gorilla mitts. Done correctly it'll be functional and still look good. Take what you have and make it better?
