It finally arrived. Now I’m searching for a Picatinny rail to mount optics. I called Rem Tech Serv and the rep noted that the dimensions of the drilled and tapped receiver are the same as the 7600P. Any leads on where I can find a rail are appreciated. I’m willing to have a custom one made if necessary, although it’s not my first choice.

Thanks in advance.

I have not found a Picatinney rail yet. Weaver makes a base but it suffers greatly from it's Weaverness. These guys http://www.accuracysystemsinc.com/index.html
Make a custom rail for the 7600. They might be willing to machine one in the Picatinney format. If you contact them and they agree, I would like in on one for myself. I did end up putting a 4 reticle Bushnell electro sight on my 760P as it fit ahead of the GR and worked with the Weaver base. With Leupold 30mm Low QRWs it sat low enough to be useful with the comb height. I only need it to zero at 50 yds so that will work.

Here's a rail blank. Don't know if it's contoured for the 7615 receiver though. You drill your own holes.

Hi MadMex,

What are they selling for and from where did you order?

Thanks

The following smith said he would custom make a rail for $150. I’ve requested details about material, type of finish, photos, etc; I’ll share details as they become available. Is anyone familiar with his work?

NorCalGuy,

I ordered it in early Feb in Sac. for $749. I was able to pick it up this week. I believe this is the MSRP, and you can probably find it at a better price (although I’ve seen the same price elsewhere in Kali for existing inventory). Apparently Remington is experiencing about a 2 to 3 month back order.

All,

Thanks for the leads. I’ll check them out.

Since this rifle uses a 7600 frame, any chance of Remington making a semi-auto version? Afterall, the 7400 is the semi-auto version of the 7600.

I'd love to see a semi-auto version of this rifle - it would totally make it worthwhile to buy, in my opinion.

Out of curiosity I called Remington to inquire about ordering some extra mags. I specified 10 rd. The rep put me on hold for over 5 minutes and returned to tell me that 10 rd mags were available only to LEOs and not legal for non LEOs. I politely thanked the rep for her time and hung up. I figured why bother telling her that the 7615P I purchased came with a 10 rd mag? I gave her the benefit of doubt and figured perhaps the mags are in such short supply that they will only be sold to LEO for the time being.

I called back the next day and spoke with a different rep. This time I was informed that all available mag inventory was being used on the production line until the end of the year. I then asked her about purchasing the Speedfeed IV-s that was recently mentioned on the 7615P web page. I was informed that it would not be sold separately for at least a year after Remington introduces it (SF IV-s equipped 7615P) for sale at the end of the year. I subsequently emailed Speedfeed about acquiring the IV-s. To no surprise, no one has replied to my inquiry. What a racket.

I may have to resort to sculpting a IV-s intended for an 870. Does anyone have any experience with sculpting Speedfeed’s black polymer? What tools did you use? Any thoughts about how sculpting may affect structural integrity of the stock? The 7615P receiver is slightly narrower than an 870 receiver.

Accuracy Systems (http://www.accuracysystemsinc.com/cust_remington_7400.html) sells a "Custom Synthetic Stock" for their modified 7400s. I've always figured it was nothing more than a massaged Speedfeed or something.

Probably wouldn't hurt ot ask them. Their customer service has been fairly pleasant for the few inquiries I've made in the past.

I believe that all of this has even been covered once before here (http://calguns.net/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/332609466/m/51810745221), but who am I to b*tch about multiple threads on the same subject?

Agree, it was part of the appeal my purchase was based on. Believe it or not, quality 10 rnd AR mags are difficult to find at the moment. The AW ban sunset has driven many manufacturers to focus on 20’s and 30’s. This shortage prompted my question on another thread where I inquired about anyone’s experience with a particular online vendor that I’m not acquainted with. I finally found (30 day backorder) some 10 round Bushmaster mags.

I’ve considered Mesa, however I would like to set up my 870P and 7615P as close to ergonomically identical as possible. The 870P currently has a SF IV-s stock. I would also like to keep the ghost ring as the primary site on the 870P. Not sure if Mesa, StockShox, etc, adapters would fit the 7615P because the receiver is narrower than the 870.

I checked the Remington part #’s for the 7400, 7600, and 7615P stock assemblies and they’re identical. I called Accuracy Systems and described what was needed. They will sculpt an 870 Speedfeed IV-s to fit the 7615P and ship a by next Wednesday. It wasn’t cheap, however they’re equipped to do a clean job and ship in a time frame much shorter than it would take me to go out and buy a stock to work on.

Lot's of parts interchange, IIRC.

So the one they offer for $169.99 is their own creation or is it an existing, modded pistol grip stock (like a Speedfeed, etc.) like I always suspected???

I guess now I don't feel so bad about what I paid.

Look at Bushmaster's 10 round mag. I have a couple of them. The quality is as good as any 30rd mag.
