For those of you who might be interested, Tactical Ordnance "Remage" (barrels that can be put onto a Remington 700 action by the user) will bring back life into any 700 out there. I am using several currently and it is so nice being able to install a barrel by yourself without using the lathe. While I am not an employee of TO, I do use a lot of their products and have come to really rely on them.
