  Anyone ever seen a Remington Model 7 in .308 Win with a 22"bbl? It's an older one with 3 d/t holes. It's not listed in my Blue Book.

  Belongs to a friend from outa state. This thing looks brand new from the factory except I'm being told Model 7's in std calibers didn't come with 22" bbls. The only conflicting things about it is I've been told the SN 7692933 shows the action may have been produced before they came out with injection molded stocks which this has and the bbl has the warning logo stamped in it and I don't know when they started doing that. What ya think?

I thought the only M7's with 22 tubes were from their Custom Shop. Model 7's used to have 18 1/2 bbl and then they went to a 20' bbl. Problem with trying to find something they cataloged is that they have made so many special runs and distributor specials that it's hard to keep track. Basically any distributor that is willing to purchase X number of rifles can get almost anything they want.

   The M7 Magnums had 22" bbls. But I'm thinking special run to in which case I may never know if it's factory made. If this rifle was put together by some guy using Remington parts,as has been suggested elsewhere,he did a heck of a job. Looks like it just got pulled out of the box. I don't think it was even fired until we shot it. It looks like a parkerized type finish on all metal,has a dark grey synthetic stock w/a light seam on it,and its got a floorplate. It looks like a Mountain Rifle contour bbl but it measures a bit more at the muzzle than they do by .059".  Just wondering if the Warning logo on the bbl and the 3 d/t holed action could be of the same time period. By the way he paid $500 w/an older Nikon 3-9x40 Buckmaster scope in Leupold 1pc mnt and rings on it. Bought it from some guy down on the Eastern Shore of Md while on a deer hunt.

If you really want to know, you can go to the Remington website and find the link that has the email address to plug in that serial number and they will tell you the who, what, when, where on that rifle

   Thunbs Up  THANK YA ROY!  Been at this for hours.  The thing of it is,he probably won't even use it. Says it kicks more than his .270 Win Fwt.  I've got his Mod 70 (black Wal-mart special thing) CRPF in .300 WSM. Been stashed under the bed behind me for 3yrs. He don't like it either.  Later
 
  Couldn't wait(WIRED!),so I looked the Remington info up. CALLING them Monday.

for 2009 they only chambered two calibers for the m7 with a 22" barrel, 270wsm and 300wsm. the rest have 20" tubes. i looked on rem web page and they have only one listing shown on site for a special run m7 and its in .204ruger. so im going to guess he has an odd duck of some sort.

 It's looking that way!  Tell ya what,even though this rifle has a light contour bbl it's heavy. Just over 8lbs scoped. I had it apart last evening and should have weighed the components before reassembly. Of course it's got to be the stock that's adding the weight. If it was mine I'd be finding a Ti stock if one would fit.

Interested in what Rem has to say.  Looked at the 08 catalog and standard cal are 20" tubes and 270 and 300 wsm are 22" as well as one version of the 7-08.  Who knows what you got.

  Those bbl's are a good bit heavier than the one on this one.   Wouldn't mind having one of those in a .350,minus the rib of course. Later I'll post a pic of this M7 for something for y'all to look at.

That looks like an old M7 AS with the Arylon stock. I have an old M700 AS. The stock is a bit heavy for a synthetic but it is very durable. It also does not make a lot of noise like some IM stocks can.
That one is a keeper.

  Tahqua,it's definitely a stiff stock for an injection molded one. Best IM stock I've seen. Sounds like it's what you say it might be.
  I also just found out that Remingtons year code for 1983 when the Model 7 was introduced is D. The bbl on this rifle where it is stamped is marked DN.

 Got a reply from a guy who has a rifle like my friends M7 only in 7mm-08. Told me his was a special run. Makes sense.
 Wonder if this will up the value much,if any,over what he paid for it($500)?
