Got this used, but trying to figure out what the heck it really is. Based on picture, no markings to find date of manufacture or action type. Looks to be a 700 style and might be a 99-01 since no letter code. Iíll try APR @Stick1 as it has their barrel on it but overall just blowing my mind. Need barrel threaded anyways so will take a trip back to APR.

M-7 would refer to a Model 7. Haven’t seen a Model 7 Tactical before, but that doesn’t really mean anything. I’ll say if that is indeed a 7 leave it in that stock, and don’t change anything. Parts are a complete PITA. I’ve made that mistake once.

Looks like a trued remington 700 with some aftermarket work done possibly. Bolt handle is similar to a Stiller tac30 but body is not.

I bet Robert will know.

Internet search of m-7 tactical only brings up the for sale listings for this gun.

In for details.

Pretty sure that was a stripped factory Remington Model Seven action. I remember them being sold by Rem around 2015-2018 ??? as the actions had no bottom metal or trigger. B/C the action was "non-designated" the action could be built as a pistol or rifle.

They became available when Remington manufactured to many actions for AAC and these were leftover. Prices were around $299-$325 depending on who was selling. Those actions were parkerized and stamped Model 7 .300 Blackout . GS's would mill out the 300 BO chamber designation if customer decided to build something else ... .223, 20 TAC, 5.56, 17 Fireball, 20 Practical, 222, 6.5 TCU, etc... The APR barrel will have the cartridge stamped on it. Looks like the bolt body was diamond fluted, and a custom handle was welded on. Because of the original .378" boltface, it is likely chambered for a cartridge in the 223 family.

edit: some of the actions (port side) had the AAC logo on it



prior to milling, the action probably looked like this one

Still need to call APR to see if they have specs but agree that looks like a 7 and modified as stated above. Well to my surprise the rifle is already threaded as APR is so good at the blended thread protector it almost alluded me. I could just see the embarrassment of me going to APR to get it threaded and they just unscrew it in my face . Well now to find some manbun ammo and off to the range.

It’s chambered in 6.5 CM ? Bolt face was opened and an M16 or Sako extractor was installed

Yes, seems like you have done this change before.

Just compared mine, the rear receiver bridge is too short in the picture to be a 700...It looks like a 7..But that's an unusual rear mount, it has only one screw unless it was modified. Model 7's only had one rear screw, so mostly used one piece bases..

Not sure when they changed early ones used only one screw for the rear base but later they were drilled for two screws very close together

Didn't know that, but the newest model 7 I have is over 10 years old. That rear receiver bridge certainly looks like a 7, from what i see.

Back holes (2) are close and consistent with a model 7 so 100% sure thatís what it is. Seems like someone spent some time and effort with this conversion.

Sorry for out bidding you but figured Iíd was a great deal since I only found it by searching for other APRs. Figured I would have lost it with 15min rule after I bid as I almost forgot about action until 55 sec were left. I hope she shoots but not really a light weight build.

Found out that APR just did a debarred to a Krieger so the mystery of the history remains that. Did find some ammo, so need to hit range and will update at that time. If you see it in the classifieds after the range donít think too much into it, LOL.
