    Farrell Rem SA base on Model 7...will this work?



    The rear hangs over but is in line with action rear. 2 front holes and 1 of the 2 rear holes perfectly aligned.

    Yes...no?

    Machine the arse of the base then maybe if the screw holes line up. Can't remember if the rear hole lines up with the front of the rear pair on the 700 action or not... Ordered a m7 base once before and got a 700SA by mistake, looked at it then before exchanging the base for the correct one...

    Yeah could do that but on 7mm Saum so would like to have the rear engaged by both available screws. Struggling to get a mount so I can put 34mm rings on.

    Before you "machine the arse off it"PM your price
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    If you want the bolt closed, just remove the rail, close the bolt and refit the rail... Sorted

    Hi, I think serious shooters had a 20 moa rem seven base. And gunworks has some but 0 moa.
    On my second 7 I have use a weaver tactical base for 700. I have milled out the rear, drilled another hole for the "front"rear screw and had to mill a little bit off the recoil lug of the base on the left hand side to fit the Remington 7 port contour with a ball nose. Then epoxied the thing in place after a good degreasing and lite sand paper sanding.
    Solid as a rock!
    I don't like the ken farrel bases as they are quite high. If you put 34 mm rings some of the lowest are still sitting 5 or 6 mm high, which leaves a generous gap between barrel and stock.
    I believe there is one set of rings in 34 mm made in Germany that sits at 3.5 mm high.
