    IIRC mag extension on Model 7's can be problematic...some gunsmiths will do it some won't as weakens action?? I may be wrong on this. 700s much easier.

    I just bought one in 243. Nice wee rifle, points well and while it feels slight to hold I would rather than than bulky.

    Does anyone know where I can get a BnC stock from? I've heard the name Red Hawk Rifles but they are in the states. @7mmsaum?

    I had to end up fitting two extra baffles on my Dpt after I stug'd my 7Saum mod 7. Now it's a pussy to shoot.

    Or replace it with a magnum dpt. That way there is no extra forward length. The extra is at the back.

    Was already a magnum ;-)

    I spoke to Darren at DPT first, i wanted to fit another of the rear spacers the magnum uses, he said from his testing it wouldnt have done bugger all for reducing recoil, compared to added a module or two. Which worked a treat. I never carry that rifle with the suppressor on anyway, it stays in the pack until i reach a glassing lookout.

    Good info.
    My 300saum is 5lb 4oz (6.5 all up) and is quite shootable with the standard dpt (magnum). Maybe the recoil is being absorbed by my body mass (fat, actually).
