What Services does CDiPrecision offer?
This information applies to Remington 700 short and long, All Savage rifles with upper bolt releases, etc. . . .
Stock Inletting = If you send us just the stock there will be some minor fitting for you to do when you get it back. The minor fitting is trimming the new action screws to size and possibly having to trim our magazine release lever to set the proper magazine height in the rifle.
Complete Installation = You can send us the complete basic rifle (the barreled action, the bolt and the stock) and we can do a complete installation service for you (still free) and this would cover the stock inletting and the minor fitting. If you send the complete rifle you will get it back ready to shoot and not have any work to do yourself. The choice is yours.
We can inlet Hogue Rubber stocks, no trouble. We can do most stocks that are out there, if you're not sure about what you have send us a picture of it and we will verify it.
Please note these Rifles are recommended for Complete Installation service: FN SPR, Winchester Model 70, and Ruger Mark II and Early Generation M77. They require some minor action trim work and you need a Mill to do it. We do it free so no hassle service.
How should I ship my rifle or my stock to CDiPrecision Gunworks?:
For a Complete Installation Service You can ship or mail us your complete rifle. Please include your action, bolt and stock. Pack it up so it is protected and not rattling in the box or case you ship it in. Some rifles come in cardboard boxes, or plastic gun cases with zip ties or in smaller boxed broken down. Or for just stock inletting you can send just the stock.
You can use Priority Mail at your local post office or print your own Priority Mail label at home at www.usps.com and hand it off to your mail carrier. You can also use UPS or Fedex, the only rule with them is to deal at a hub, not at a retail mail and ship type place. We find mail is the easiest. Please insure your shipment. We can email you or fax you a copy of our FFL if you would like to have it when you ship to us.
