Default Re-Stocking a Remington 700 Classic

Wondering what isa good composite stock to replace the Classic's wood one with. It will be going on a right hand short action 700 with hinged floor plate.
Thanks!

I just put the Ramline stocks on my classics to use. They dropped right in and have worked great for quite a few years. I think the were 60.00 when I bought mine and they are not much more now. Cheap but very pratical.

Could try the bell and carlson medalist series. midway has them in stock in a variety of colors. camo etc. They are drop in and have a aluminum bedding block so no glass bedding needed. run aorund 200-230 at MIDWAY. Got one and I have no complaintsand didn't have to wait two months to get it.hope it helps.

We put the wood stocks away to preserve them in case we want to trade or sell them later. For me the Ramline was perfect. The guns shoot very well and the wood is still new in the box. After all the clasics are collectors guns now.

BOOOOOH! HISSSSSS! BOOOH! plastic stocks are junk!

Women should be hot, Beer should be cold, & Guns should have wood stocks.

If you must, choose either the HS Precision pro series or the Bell & Carlson gold medalist stocks. Be prepared to spend at least $200.

What in the blazes are you doin?? Restocking a regular 700 is one thing, but violating a Classic is close to being a sacrelige, as far as I'm concerned. If you are bound and determined to do this, PLEASE keep your old wood stock so you may re-install it some years down the road after you've realized your mistake. May the Good Lord take mercy on your soul......

I consider the Classic to be a shooter, not a collector.
There were reasonably large quantities made and not much "special" about them
