Wondered if anyone would explain what the differences are, between the Remington 700 BDL, and a 700 "Classic"?

The BDL is equiped thusly

Hi gloss polyurethane checkered stock with ebony forend. Checkering may or may not be "pressed". Hard plastic butt plate or hard rubber butt pad. Iron sights.

The "classic" had a satin oil finished walnut stock with cut checkering, soft rubber recoil pad, no sights.

The classic deluxe had the above and the ebony cap, nicer walnut and the new R3 recoil pad.

The high gloss polyurethane stock of the BDL and the iron sights and butt pad are a turn off for me. But many years ago, I thought they were the cats meow...

Most of the classic and classic deluxe models are equipped with the "j lock", but not all.... I have an early one in 6MM that has no J lock.

The classics are made in one run every year, each year a different "classic" chambering. So this year it will be the caliber ABC, next year it will be caliber XYZ. Usually obsolete calibers catering to handloaders. Remington will produce ammo for that year, but the next year they will produce ammo for that year's rifles.
