I see all kinds of brands. I am looking at adding new bottom metal and magazines to make my remington 700 use magazines.
Cabelas has one called Kwik Klip, Wyatt is another, but I see lots of different brands.
Anybody added one to their rifle and have any recommendations? It will be for a 7mm rem mag in a aftermarket stock.

Good luck!

You're probably going to want one that is a straight replacement for the BDL bottom metal your rifle has (I am assuming). You'll need to confirm whether your rifle is long action or short action. And whether your rifle is BDL or something else. The you'll need what you buy to be a drop-in replacement for that setup.

I say all of that because a lot of the solutions such as the one made by Badger have their own shape and design and are not drop in. The stock would need to be cut for them. So unless you are buying a new custom stock, you want to make sure your new lower metal is a drop-in replacement designed for the setup you have.

I was replacing my stock with a custom stock from McMillan so I went with the Badger option.

My 700 is long action. Also, the 7mm Remington Mag cartridge is not as popular as the .308. Accuracy International told me that I would have to modify a .300 win to make it work. When I asked them who would modify it, them or a local gun smith, their response was "well, we don't recommend modifying them at all"

Not helpful!

I dont want a gunsmith to have to do the job, many companies advertise a true bolt in system, and I want to go with that. I don't mind doing a little fine tuning, but since I have not yet bought a new stock for this rifle, I am researching systems and will go with a stock that will work with the system. RHR has a B&C stock that will work with the Wyatt system and they claim it works with my caliber. So far, they are the front runner.

Also, it is a BDL model. I have no issues replacing the bottom metal at all, in fact I expect it. I dont even mind a little inletting the stock. I just want to be able to do it myself.

I'd go with a drop in. No in letting to do. Nothing to screw up.

There are drop-in BDL kits out there. At least there were when I was researching this last. And they were half the price of the Badger solution.

It has probably been 5 years since I last build a bolt action stick. Miss mine. I had a Remington 700 5R Milspec 308 Rifle. Put a custom A3 McMillan stock on it. Loved that thing. Never should have sold it. Next one will probably have a McMillan A5 stock and better rings. But other than that will be pretty much the same setup. Though I may skimp and go with the Remington SPS Tactical instead. Not nearly as nice a rifle. But more within budget and for the shorter ranges I typically have access to it works just fine.

Bear in mind I get discount pricing on McMillan stocks. So I go there because it is not as pricey for me. But there really is no need to replace the stock just to get a drop box magazine. They make solutions that will work with what you have...and what you have is really nice.

It's all the complications of bending the feed lips with pliers. Not rocket science, but will take some tuning based on the case.

If you haven't bought a stock consider an RTM from gotxring.com (I've been pimping them a lot lately) which comes ready to take ACIS .300 win mag magazines. No bedding required, no bedding to wear out. You'll need a gunsmith to swap the standard recoil lug with the one gotxring supplies, and that's all.

PT&G has a long action drop in for your setup.

Ohh ya you don't need to mod anything if it's 7rem mag and you are using 300win mag mags. I did it and was fine. You need to bed your feed lips if you are using a 284/30-06 case.

Wyatt's is a good system. Great drop-in unit that requires no (or little) fitting.

Happy with my CDI setup on my 308, but I did have to inlet the stock a little bit. Not that hard, I was able to do it in an hour or so.

I have it on my .308 SPS. Its a straight drop-in. No gunsmith required. Bolted to my action myself. The only negative is that the mags are proprietary and pricey.

I have the Wyatt system that I installed into a B&C. Unfortunately the metal was sitting a little to far forward the the front of the mags were hitting the bottom of the feed ramp. After a call to Wyatt and a very helpful person walking me through the problem (I think it was the owner), we determined the B&C needed a little trimming. 3 minutes later with a dremel and removing a very small amount of material from the stock, its working great. Very happy.

Just a heads up that it might not be 100% perfect fit on the fit go around if you get a "drop in" system.

The badger bottom metal for the long action m40 will drop right into your long action bdl inlet and accept the single stack 300 magnum AI mags which will feed your 7mm magnum cartridges just fine...

Just buy a new stock with a built in bottom metal part. If you look at the price of a good bottom metal part that requires fitting then you might as well spend a little more and get some in like an AICS setup.

I bought the wyatts drop in kit but it didn't work on my aac-sd and returned it and went with an AICS and couldn't be happier with it.

Good bottom metal for AICS mags is $99 from PTG amd sometimes goes on sale for $75.
Then $75 more for a mag.
I charge $75 to inlet the stock for the bottom metal to fit.

I never saw them for 75 when I looked. But I wanted the best I could buy for my rifle on the first go.

They go on sale every monthly two for a couple weeks directly from PTG.
This is a relatively new thing, perhaps in the last 6-9 months.
The quality of them is every bit as good as a badger M5.

PT& G has three different styles of detachable mag kits.
M5, flush, and military style.
Which kit would be the best fit for a 7mm rem mag and what are the advantages of each setup?

The military one is the "drop-in" one for a long action 700.

$200 with one magazine.

The m5 style ones will use long action AICS magazines and will require inletting of the stock.
The advantage of AICS mags is that they are shorter length for the same capacity.
The military model uses a single stack magazine while AICS mags are double stack with a center feed top.

That's good to know.

Looks like those of us with Short actions can use this one as a drop in? Is that correct. Short Action Flush Mount Detach Mag Bottom Metal- M5 Style
$129.00 https://shop.pacifictoolandgauge.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4_90_95&products_id=1264&zenid=3icmek3oe95jlcnvkeblj2uc03

I think those still require some inletting, its just not as much inletting as standard m5 inletting.
