    Does anyone know if a REM 721 long action will fit a REM 700 long action stock?

    I would like to use my Grandfathers rifle next year and the trigger is so smooth.

    Sort of, depends.

    You will have to inlet the stock for the safety in a different position. The barrel channel will need a clearance cut for the rear sight bulge on the 721 barrel. The bolt handle is different and may need a little clearance work.

    If you are using an 700 ADL stock, the 700 trigger guard will work. If you have a 700 BDL stock, the BDL guard and floorplate will work but are expensive. The 721 guard/floorplate will sort of work in the BDL stock but may need spacer, gap fillers, etc. The magazine box may work or may need to be shortened a bit.

    Do you have a stock already? An ADL style will be easier and better looking.

    Thanks for the know-how but I think I will go back to plan A, get another rifle in .30-06.

    Thanks,
