    ok, ive checked the remington site and i checked WallyWorld's as well, but both left me answerless. What action is used in the remington VLS / PSS (same rifle; different stock), is it ADL, BDL, CDL (i'm not even sure these are action types, but i do know ADL and BDL are two different actions) or something else, i'm also assuming that it is short action.

    thanks

    believe it or not, wally world has it listed at $573 (msrp is $785)

    not a bad price at all, .223 or .308 model?

    the .308 and lower caliber models are short action.

    walmart actually carries .223, .22-250, .243, .308, and 6mm

    its special order, but the price (as far as i know) would be the same, i wasnt even aware Wally World carried remmy 700's until i was searching for a 10/22 online and decided to check under bolt actions for shits and giggles

    i was looking into a PSS or a ROMAK3, but i found a review that said the PSS and the VLS where mechanically the same, all thats diff is the stock, which is fine by me because i dont hunt or anything so i have no use for a synthetic stock, besides wood = sexy

    VLS is a tack driver. I can personally attest to this.

    There is no different action, they're all 700s, BDLs have a hinged floorplate and ADLs dont. Since a PSS/VLS have hinged floorplates I guess you could say they're built off of BDLs but again, that doesnt really make sense.

    isn't there a short and long action? w/the adl, bdl, cdl just being various other options..such as hinged floorplate, stock comb...etc? i know at least one of the makers has short vs long actions.

    Well yeah, there are short and long actions, but they're still all 700's.


    Savage does use the 10/110 designations to denote length, but it still all essentially the same action.

    there is a difference between ADL and BDL because when you look at the aftermarket stocks they make you specify ADL or BDL as well as Long Action and Short Action, now, with me being a noob (obviously :o) i would assume that ADL and BDL are two different styles of the same bolt, but need a different bolt pattern

    ADL short action
    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=496715
    BDL short action
    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=611471

    Both are remington 700 but there must be a difference between ADL and BDL for there to be 2 different stock, otherwise imo there would be 1 interchangeable stock

    and yeah CDL is just an upgraded BDL

    There's a difference in stocks because one has a hinged floorplate and the other has a blind magazine, they're all still the exact same action. :hsugh:

    LTR's are still made, but they're under the Law Enforcement section for remington, unless they havent taken it off their site yet

    not sure why someone would buy the LTR when they could have the PSS for cheaper, the LTR seems to run 750-850 on gunbroker, as opposed to the PSS which is 650-750, other than the weight difference

    does the VLS have a hinged floorplate? i wasnt really concerned w/ what the difference between BDL and ADL was specifically, i was concerned what the VLS is, especially since Remington never says

    ok, so if the metal plate on the bottom sticks out a bit it is the BDL, but if there is no metal showing or it is recessed into the stock it is an ADL, cool thank you for the help i appreciate it

    I got my LTR for 760, which is pretty close to MSRP. I got the LTR over the regualr 700P because, it's a little rarer, lighter, and for me it's not just a bench gun, so something i could carry all day was important. Plus the fluting is tacticool:bigthumb:

    and for everyone else, the LTR has always be under the LE section, along with the 700P. what i didn't know is that you can get the 700P with a 26 in fluted barrell...
