Remington Performance Packages

Aquila now offers tune up packages for Remington 700 rifles. Remington makes a great rifle and its also a great rifle to perform custom work on because of the number of after market parts are virtually unlimited, not to mention that its well designed.

The aftermarket parts market is important when building a rifle. Little things like the unlimited quantity and configurations of rings and bases, firing pins, triggers and stocks are important to perfectly fit a rifle to the shooter.

These packages also give the shooter the confidence that their rifle is in good working order with no hidden problems.

NOTE: The options are listed in a fashion that is a logical order for tuning a rifle. For example, it is not recommended that the receiver and bolt be blue printed and then put the factory barrel back in.
 

Explanation of Performance Options

Top of Page

Head Spacing
The head spacing is checked to be sure its with in tolerances. If its not, Aquila can correct it but it will require the removal of the barrel to remachine the shoulder. It is an additional $125.00

Stock Work
Wood stocks are pillar bedded and the barrel is free floated. If its an H-S Precision stock, on most Senderos, the lug area is bedded and the barrel is free floated. The receiver screws are torqued to exact tolerances. We have seen instances where a bedding job and proper stock screw toque tightened the groups by as much as 1.

Recrown the barrel
This is an extremely important part of the barrel. If not done exactly true with the bore, one side of the bullet will leave the barrel before the other, causing it to be slightly deflected and in turn, an inaccurate rifle. This is also a tricky machining set up that if not done correctly, it may make things worse.

The receiver screws are torqued to exact tolerances. We have seen instances where a bedding job and proper stock screw toque tightened the groups by as much as 1.

Trigger job
A bad trigger pull is a definite group killer. Aquila no longer works on factory triggers. We replace the factory with a Timminey trigger, which has a wide adjustment range and is far superior to the factory trigger.

Light Firing Pin and Spring
The amount of time it takes: from the time you pull the trigger, till the moment the bullet ignites is called lock time. A shortened lock time does not make a rifle more accurate, it allows the shooter to shoot more accurately. Any movement during this time causes the point of aim to change and this option reduces the issue.

Lapped Scope Rings
Scope rings are lapped to ensure a good tight fit, which eliminates the possibility of scope movement during recoil. Many accuracy issues have been traced back to improperly mounted optics.

Muzzle Brake
A secret about muzzle brakes, most brakes on the market work fine. We feel that our 4th generation brakes work great due to a unique interior design that is engineered to take full advantage of expanding gasses to reduce the recoil and not effect accuracy.

After we install our brake, there is no visible seam between the barrel and the brake. The brake appears to be part of the barrel and is made from quality steel, to exact tolerances.

Receiver and Bolt Blue printing
The receiver bolt face and threads are machined so that they are perfectly aligned with the bolt channel. The bolt lugs and face are machined to be in alignment with the bolt body. This process not only trues the receiver and bolt, but also reduces the stress on the bolt and the lug face caused by the miss alignment inherent from the factory.

Bushing the Firing pin
An additional bolt refining process such as "bushing the firing pin hole" will ensure consistent firing pin strikes on every shot. We have done a great deal of testing to determine firing pin depth and diameter to ensure this procedure really performs. If you're ordering a rifle for target or long range shooting, this option is a must.

Barrel replacement
The barrel is replaced with a quality Hart or Lilja barrel. This offers a great advantage over the factory barrel. Not only is the barrel steel and bore is far superior to the factory but, our machining process is much more precise. We do more than just machine both ends and install it. We have a number of special processes at we go through when installing a barrel that ensure a perfect job.

Note: There are many barrel companies that manufacture high quality barrels. Aquila is able to procure Harts and Lilja barrels in a timely manner therefore and are the barrels of choice for most customers.. However, we will be happy to use a quality barrel from the manufacture of choice. Aquila does not install chromoly barrels.

Barrel fluting is for cosmetic reasons only.

Barrel selection: Be sure to make note of the bullet points below when replacing the barrel

  •   Barrel Contour

  •   Caliber

  •   Rate of Twist

  •   Length

  •   Muzzle Brake

  •   Fluting

3 position Safety
This option moves safety from the trigger to the bolt. It actually locks the firing pin which is much more reliable than locking the trigger.

Extended Bolt Handle and Badger Knob
Not only does this add a cool look to your rifle but is also aides in the ease cocking. A longer bolt handle adds leverage and actually reduces the effort in cocking the rifle.

Custom Etching
This is always a nice custom addition to a rifle. Stainless is electro etched and blued steel is etched in the tradition manner. We will son have laser engraving available.


Level 1 Performance package

Top of Page

This is a basic package that will add accuracy and reliability to your rifle. It has more enhancements than some custom rifles on the market and at a reasonable price. If you have a rifle with a plastic stock, a wood or synthetic stock can be purchased through Aquila. The plastic stocks are very difficult to impossible to properly bed and are not suited for these tuning packages.

Level 2 Performance package

Top of Page

All of the enhancements of the level one are performed as well as a new barrel. This package will cover most shooters that need consistent reliable performance from their rifle. Some factory barrels shoot great and some dont. Most factory barrels suffer from repeatable performance and fouling. A lot of these problems are due to poor or poorly stressed relieved steel and inferior bores. This package takes out that hindrance.

Some Level 2 performance package suggestions: for a very accurate hunting rifle, a receiver blue printing and a barrel replacement will normally make for a reliable, consistently accurate rifle. A target rifle or tactical rifle requires a few more options like bushing the bolt and firing pin to bring them up to the performance level needed.
