Archangel Remington 700

At 188.00 I couldn't resist giving it a try. Least expensive way to convert to a magazine fed.

It's aluminum bedded and free floats the barrel...kinda heavey but that's good on the bench. I wouldn't take it in the field like this

The integrated bipod is a clever addition and fits nicely. It's not adjustable and the attachment point make it less stable than a Harris on swivel

I'm going to try it as is but foresee a conversion project removing the integrated bipod

As I responded in your other post about this stock. I'm not following you around but it bothers me when people make false or inaccurate claims, besides, it almost sounds like you're shilling for Archangel and that's not what this forum is about.

Oh my, it's obvious you don't understand what you read. This isn't an aluminum bedded stock, it's got pillars that are bedded

FEATURES
Aluminum pillar bedded
There is a big difference between an aluminum bedded stock and just having the pillars bedded. The pillars are the bushings that the stock screws go through and if they are aluminum bedded then they have put an aluminum/epoxy compound or aluminum blocks around where those bushings go through the stock. An aluminum bedded stock has some sort of aluminum/epoxy layer or an aluminum skeleton along it's entire length or at least at strategic points where the receiver contacts the stock.

The Archangel is a polymer (plastic) stock and this newer version is advertised as being filled with carbon fiber, that means that they have mixed carbon fibers in the plastic and then created the stock through some kind of plastic shaping process, either high pressure extrusion or a simpler mold process.

I understand its not bedded...I described it incorrectly and should have simply cut and pasted the companies



Now....I understand its not a B and C or JAE but for my purposes installing a 1000.00 stock on 700.00 rifle makes no sense

Furthermore YOU suggesting that I might be a shill for archangel is ludicrous.

I found a good deal and opted to share it with the forum.

I wanted to convert to magazine fed and this is THE most economical way I found to do it

The stock was a bonus....it's hands down better than anything remington puts on their rifles off the shelf

For the purist with a money tree this is definitely not for you.

Back from the range. Overall I'm pretty satisfied. Rounds fed fairly smooth through the box and the bipod was solid when he'll firmly. As I suspected the fixed height of the pod caused issues at 100 yds......I need to legate the set up

Results with milsurp.....decent for a nearly blind weekender

I like the idea of a detachable magazine . Some rifles like the Mauser , Pre 64 Winchester 70 and Model 720 Remington have excellent fixed magazines and followers . The Remington 700 is not one of these as has been addressed by the US Marines in totally eliminating the stock Remington bottom metal and follower in the M40. If the Archangel 700 stock is reliable in feeding this would be a huge upgrade in the rifle . Archangel also makes a stock for the Mosin Nagant again eliminating a problem magazine area on an otherwise good rifle.

I don't know if I'd take it into combat but it sure made me smile on the bench.

100 rounds...no misfeeds

The magazine looks a lot like a modified m1a mag

It is a modified M14 magazine. I wish it were just a normal one and they could make it work.

Here's to hoping the new Mossberg MVP .308 will in fact have working M14 magazines.

I really want to purchase the Archangel 700 stock but with shims the Hogue is just super reliable and accurate. Can you give me a direct link to where you purchased one for $188?

Interesting. I knew it was only a matter of time till they copied the JAE remington stock as well. Never held one of these stocks for either the M1A or the remington so I can't really comment. Much cheaper than the JAE stock and you still get somewhat the same look as the heretofore mentioned.

I found it here

http://www.slickguns.com/product/arc...al-vantage-188

And these guys sold it to me

http://www.tacticalvantage.com/.

It looks like either they raised the price or I took advantage of an error because it looks like its 350 now.

I had one for an M1a.....I traded it for a vltor setup. I like it better in a bolt gun.

Am I missing something. You said $188. Your link says $350, Buds ~$250. Not that much of a deal.

I'm not sure what the deal is....they advertised it 188 via slick guns.com

If you pm I will send a copy of the invoice

Maybe you could use it to question the price

I don't think I would go 300 for it

I'd do the conversion instead

Hello everyone, i'm new to this forum and I also bought the archAngel stock for $188. It was such a good deal that I couldn't pass it up. I figured if I didn't like it I could always sell it without much loss. My 700 currently has a b&c m40 but I really wanted the removable magazine. To my surprise, this stock (for Me) fits me better than the b&c. It's hard to explain but it just feels right, especially in a prone position. My only dislike is the bipod, it doesn't swivel like my Harris and seems a little flimsy. That being said, this stock will remain and the b&c will be up for sale.

Now the reason why I came to this thread is I need to figure out what mags are compatible with this stock? If anyone could steer me in the right direction, I would be very much grateful. Thanks

I tried two different plastic stock on my 700
Ended up going back to wood.
Just lost too much MOA out past 600 yards
