rem 700 vls review

The rem 700 vls is one of the most popular rifle upgrades on the market. It’s not the cheapest but it offers excellent value for money. You can use it to transform any standard Remington 700 into a camouflaged gun. All you need to do is add a few layers of spray paint in the colors that match your hunting environment. Once you’re done, you can start covering the stock with moss, plants or grass to create a unique and stylish camo pattern.

The Remington Model 700 VLS (Varmint Laminated Stock) bolt-action rifle is designed for hardcore varmint and predator hunting, or precision long-range shooting. It features the legendary Model 700 action mated to a 26-inch, heavy contour, vibration-dampening barrel with a target crown for enhanced accuracy. The handsome, resin-impregnated laminated stock is fitted with a Monte Carlo cheekpiece and a beavertail fore-end for stability.

It’s important to understand the differences between a long-action and short-action before you go shopping for an aftermarket stock for your Remington 700. This impacts what cartridges it can take and how much recoil it can handle.

The Magpul Hunter 700 stock is compatible with the long-action Remington 700 and takes detachable magazines. It’s made from reinforced polymer and an aluminum bedding block and is a very durable upgrade. It’s also lightweight and offers a soft butt pad that absorbs the recoil.

It’s a great choice for hunters who use a lot of magnum calibers and wants to avoid the fitting issues that come with a hinged floor plate. It comes with an adjustable X-Mark Pro trigger and can accommodate most optics. It’s also drilled and tapped for scope mounts.
