Does anybody know of a company that makes a Tactical stock for the Remington 770? I bought the gun new for $354.00 on a bet that I could work my Gunsmith VooDoo on it and make it out shoot my buddies $1,500 Remington 700 Tactical bells and whistles rifle. Well I did and I even surprised myself with a .63 MOA three shot group. They are both .308 and we even traded rifles and his groups improved with my rifle over his own. I do gun work on the side it's not my career just a hobby. I have to say that I love the way the rifle shoots and I don't feel it can be improved anymore than it is at this time but I hate the stock and plastic trigger guard. It shoulders well and from the group size it fits me well and the Deer I killed with it didn't mind but I think it's ugly as sin. My beef is purely cosmetic. If anyone knows where I can get a polymer stock for it I would appreciate it. Please don't ask what all was done to it as I would have to take a whole day to go through the extensive list and yes it would take equal to or more than $1,500 if you had to pay a gunsmith to do all the modifications so it's not worth the trouble to get one to shoot this well. I have looked to all my sources and I can't find any company that makes hardly any parts much less a stock for it. I did alot of fabrication for this project.
