I'm trying to decide what I want to do to it.

I'm thinking of keeping the original look and bring it back to its original form.

What do you guys think and any advice would be appreciated.
I'm a fan of the 700. I would do exactly as you mentioned above.

Well I did the same with an old Remington 721 in 30.06
It was a total piece of junk when I inherited it.
It was FIl's first deer rifle purchased in 1953.

Now why through the years it was stripped of parts I don't know but all I got was the receiver and a ratty old stock.

All the metal had been taken along with the bolt but I persevered and was able to locate ALL the parts necessary to take her back to original shooting condition to include a functioning bolt.

End result, I had $600 bucks in a $200 rifle but the wife is happy cause its her daddy's deer gun,

Now I just have to keep the BIL away from it ..........
