I bought two 510's to install on my 700's (30-06, .270). I've read that a good AM trigger makes quite a difference in the accuracy of these. One has a Leupold and the other a Vortex scope, both with Leupold rings and bases. One gun had a trigger job done many years ago. I really can't tell much difference bw the two. Anyone have any tips on installing these triggers? I wanted to start with the triggers. I'll probably upgrade the stocks as well, maybe before this year's season.

a lot of them show removing the pins but it isn't necessary especially the bolt stop
Yep, letting the bolt stop get loose turns a simple job into a real pain in the neck!

@nmurph , I don't know where you're located, but I'm in Dallas. If you need a hand just give me a holler. I'd be happy to install them for you, or give you a hand, or just watch you while you do it. No charge.

Semper Fi!

Thanks, but I'm in the opposite corner of the state.

I've made up my mind to swap in the BDL bottom metal and put everything into a B&C stock.

I've installed a few. Great for the money. You may have to do some filing on the stock for the safety and bolt release to operate as expected.

Thanks for the offers!

I was going to pillar bed the stocks, but i've decided to put Bell and Carlson stocks on instead. I've got to get the bottom metal to turn them into BDL's. I did come across a company named AG Composites. They make carbon fiber stocks in Alabama and they make them to fit the ADL. Strangely enough, I prefer the smooth bottom of the ADL vs the BDL or especially a DBM. I emailed them today and I'm waiting to hear back about pricing.

What type of stock are you looking for? Have you considered HS Precision? They make an ADL model with a bedding block as well as pillar I think. I think you can also get it with or without the raised comb.

I'm familiar with HS. I didn't realize they make an ADL model. Not having to buy the BDL parts puts their price very close to B&C + bottom metal. Are they superior to the B&C stocks? Both have full length bedding block.

HS precisions are generally rated about the B&C but the B&C are fine. The best light weight are McMillan's but you pay a heavy price for those.. A new company to check out is the Grayboe company headed up by one of the Mcmillan boys.. they make stock exclusively for the 700

i may be wrong but I think Grayboe only offers BDLs. Another thing about HS I think the stocks are available with or without the larger palm swell more like the old Senderos than M24 or newer Sendero with the wide beavertail.

I found some HS ADL for what a B&C + bottom metal will cost me... just got to decide which way to go, and pull the trigger.

The AG Composites are $549... but they are light! They would be interesting if I was building a mountain gun.

Hi Killerv, I am trying to finish installing a new Timmey Trigger into my Remington 700 Mountian Rifle laminate stock but must do some inlettling to make it fit. Have you done this type of inletting and if so would you recommend this as a DIY project? I have contacted a couple of gunsmiths and have not been able to get the work done. Thanks for any information.

FWIW, One of the first upgrades I would do is add the BDL bottom metal. I've had a BDL since 1983 and I also have rifles with a clip, a Browning Abolt II with a floorplate and clip, tubular magazines and I've owned and shot many other types.
Hands down, the best has been the BDL. Easy to top off a shot or load just one. After the hunt just drop the floorplate and catch the rounds in your hand, close floorplate and eject live round and the gun is unloaded.
Just something to consider.
