View Full Version : Suppressor host

So, I'm looking for a boltgun suppressor host.

I've got a 700 (a very nice 700)
Picked it up from a divorcing gunsmith. IIRC timmny trigger, improved extractor, Ti firing pin, and something very much like robar treatment.
Problem: it'a an ADL
It's a 308, and a righty.

Option number 2:
Savage 110 in 30-06
Wood stock, lefty.

I'm cross dominant, right handed, left eyed. I can shoot either, (shooting the 700 lefty, using the forward hand to work the bolt) and am not sure which I want to go with.
Either would need a replacement barrel as neither is right for threading.

700 would need only a different barrel, I'd replace the stock and barrel with a .308 barrel on the 110, however, I could replace the barrel myself. (I've got a fair amount of match kings, and a considerable stash of both 308 and 30-06 non match ammo)

I could always get anther gun, but... Seems absurd.
110 would require more parts, the 700 only a barrel, but I couldn't drop the mag to unload it, and would need a gunsmith. (got that)

Which would you do? Or both? Or neither?

This would be more of a "do all" gun. Deer, plinking, etc.

I'd go with the Savage, simply because you can change the barrel yourself.

Why do you think cross-dominance is a factor in shooting rifles? Instictive shotgunning yes, but aimed precision shooting not so much. FWIW, I am cross-dominant also.

Both Savage and Remington offer suppressor-friendly bolts ready to go. Unless you want the project work, I would recommend selling one or both of the rifles you have and purchase the rifle you really want. You should either come out even or ahead that way.

Savage "Law Enforcement Series" has what you want.

Remington "Tactical Series" also fits your description.

What suppressor do you have?

Yea, I know about the suppressors ready models, and I might. Just haven't made up my mind.

Cross dominance isn't a concern for the shooting, just the handling. (why I switch back and forth in how I run a right or lefty bolt I suspect)
I run an AK or AR either handed till the longer shots are called for.

Just thread the barrel on your .308.

I'm really happy with my .308 18" Remingon 700 with AAC 762 suppressor. And it ain't so bad without it.

Heck, thread your .30-06 too.

What about a big slug that you can handload to less than the 1100 feet per second to get ride of sonic crack?
Just wondering.

ADL is a problem???
.308 is a problem?? Some fairly nice rifles have been chambered in .308 or the military equivalent.

There are calibers specifically for that. .300 blackout is a small one. I've been pondering this. In a bolt gun, it would be really quiet. And using a Remington Model 7 with its really short action, makes for a compact package, but I don't know that it is as magazine adaptable as a 700. A magazine feed is so much nicer on a bolt gun, if only for ease of loading and unloading. An ADL or BDL with a low-mounted scope doesn't leave much finger room in the mag well for loading.

Now if someone other than Mopssberg offered a rifle or bottom metal for the AR mag . ..

Wyatt's makes one but it is a proprietary mag.

I wouldn't mind having to notch an AR mag for a different catch location, but I don't need another mag type.

There is .308 Subsonic - both Lapua and Corbon, and plenty of recipes for handloaders with 200g bullets.

I actually wouldn't mind owning the Mossberg rifle. I'm not sure what I'd do with a bolt action .223 so I'd have to rebarrel it to 300BLK but I could make the rifle work.

A second thought - why not a Contender or Encore? Buy it as a pistol, swap it back and forth between rifle and pistol as you wish, get extra barrels as you wish, etc.?

I'll check and see if there's enough "meat". Wasn't thinking there was.

Both are slim with irons.

Not the .308.

The ADL

I like being able to drop the mag. For reasons mentioned and others.

Got one. Not what I'm after at the moment.

But thanks for bringing it up.i was thinking about getting a Handi-rifle in 300blk one of these days. I should just get the barrel.

I've got the Mossberg MVP. The magazine release is actually pretty ingenious and holds everything I've put in it including Pmags. The barrel looks like it has the locking ring ala the Savage, but with no slots or grooves for a wrench. Not quite sure how they loosen/tighten it. This thing is just aching for a 300 Blackout barrel.

If you want to go cheap as possible, get your 308 barrel threaded and get a stock like this for $109:

And get some BDL bottom metal like this for $89:

If you need a removable magazine, the CDI is good, takes the AICS type mag (you can get other, cheaper like the accurate mag) and they will rout your stock if it's beyond your capability. $209:

PTG had these...

https://shop.pacifictoolandgauge.com/images/Remington%20stealth%20bottom%20metal.png

on sale for $75 yesterday with a pile of other stuff, but now I see they are not on the specials page.

I think their website has some issues, because their specials page items comes, goes, comes, goes with a whim.
