I've been wanting a good SHTF rifle for a long time. I've had ARs and AKs, they bore me. I've looked at lever guns, but don't like the reloading. I was set on a SOCOM, but they are too heavy. I got looking at the Ruger Gunsite Scout, and really like it, but I don't like the stock and a few little things about it. So, I got thinking! I want to build my version of the Ruger, out of a Remington 700. I'm still researching, but here is my plan, so far... Remington 700 BDL .308 Rebarreled with 16" semi-heavy threaded barrel Badger Ordinance detachable mag set up Open sights HS Precision stock Tactical bolt knob Let me know what you guys think! Any advice is welcome!
