New toy Remington 7400 30-06

I got a new toy. A Remington 7400 carbine in .30-06. It has an 18" bbl and a Choate pistol grip stock and synthetic forend. I was looking at garands but they are heavy and expensive, I "needed" an 06. This is a keeper. 1 1/2" groups with 147 fmj's. Better with 165 sp's. 10 round detachable mags readily available. Does what the Garand can, better.

Thinking about sending it off for a flash hider or muzzle brake.

My only question is how do I detail strip it. I have heard you must remove the barrel to get the bolt out.

Yes, you do have to remove the barrel in order to remove the bolt carrier assembly. There is a special wrench available from Brownells to remove the barrel nut. It'll cost you about $37 to get it from Brownells.

I have one of these tools that I'd be willing to sell for $32 postage included.

It just so happens that I have two Remington 7400's one of which is a never fired, 18 inch, matte black, synthetic, new-in-the-box, factory-stock .308 while the other is a lightly modified version of the same model with a smoothed & honed action, pistol grip, M-4 CAR style collapsible stock, an extended mag release allowing one finger magazine drop without losing your firing grip. Both rifles have a top mounted Weaver rail for optical or red dot scope mounting.

I'd like to sell one or both of these rifles to fund yet another project. If you know anyone who might be interested, have 'em contact me at [email protected].
