    Ken Henderson stocks for Remington Model Seven/7- feedback and pics wantedHi

    Hi all,

    Been in touch with Ken (Hi-Tech) through FB to ask about his Rem Model 7 stock.

    He said they are only available in the Sako 85 pattern, but come with a V-block bedding system which makes me pretty keen for one.

    However, price wise it's a bit steep after shipping and tax (the Model 7 stainless I have was bought for £400) so before I spend 3x what the rifle cost me I'd like to hear some feedback from you lot and see some pictures, pretty please?

    Another question, can you paint them? Not a huge fan of the matt/gloss carbon look.

    Cheers.

    Looks good. My Model 7 continues to impress me although I have it in a laminate stock.

    Ken's stocks put any other aftermarket stocks I've used to shame, hard to fault them. In my opinion it would be a crime to paint one, they are a work of art!

    I can appreciate a good carbon layup as much as the next guy, but they also paint F1 cars...

    You can definitely paint them. I do wonder if the sako 85 stock may be a little big for a model seven?

    Nice Sako Black Bear there MSL. I sold mine before Ken did the carbon fibre stocks for the 85 as I didn't like the standard Sako finnlight stock (same as the BB except for the colour of the grip panels). One of the most accurate centrefire rifles I ever owned. I regret selling it.
    When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

    It is the same when you are stupid.

    I’m keen on one for my A7 but he only does them in the Sako 85 stock shape which I think is a bit high in the cheek weld for me .

    This is the ken henderson stock for remington 7. The action fit straight into it, but be aware that over the years there were several different shapes of Rem 7 trigger guards and that you might have to do a small bit of dremeling internally to fit your particular trigger guard. It is not Ken's fault, it is what it is.
    I believe the rem7 overall shape is the same as the Rem 700. The Sako over all shape might be similar, except around the rear tang area which is of a different shape.

    I believe you have it wrong, Rem model 7 only fits our Rem Hunter stock with rem v-block - nothing to do with the Sako 85 stock.
