Firearm of the Week: Remington 700 on the Magpul Hunter Stock

While I'm rarely a fan of bolt action guns, this one gets a mention because the Hunter stock from Magpul practically makes this a new gun.  

The Remington 700 is a venerable bolt action gun (most commonly chambered in 308). It's been around for years and has been a favorite for hunters since it's inception.  The magpul stock allows you get more of a pistol like grip vs a tradition rifle grip.  It also allows the 700 to accept detachable Pmags (which is pretty cool).  

Sling attachment points and a place to mount a bipod are also part of the stock.

Throw some nice glass on there and you have a beautiful target/hunter/sniper rifle ready to rock and roll.
