Yep, as the guys mentioned above, yours is a 40XB which is different than the 40X, the primary difference is the stock, rail and handstop (swivel base).

Both the 40X and the 40XB were offered in a standard barrel and heavy barrel configuration and the 40XB actions were a mix of 722 (early) and 700 (late). The CMP did not make a distinction in the advertisment of the Remingtons between the 40X (722 action) and the 40X (700 action). To them they are ALL 40X's because that is what was on the documentation they received from the government.

Keep in mind that this is my first 40X/40XB also and I am just parroting what some of the other knowledgable people here have stated. All of my rimfire experience has been with Winchester 52's until now. I am looking forward to seeing what model/type actually shows up from the CMP and getting it to the range to see if it can beat my Winchester scores.

Regards,

Those are for tuning the barrel. They are adjustable screws for increasing/decreasing the tension on the barrel to optimize the harmonics.

A couple questions?
How come this stock wasn't drilled for a rear sling swivel?
Was it shortened? Stock is 32 1/2" long

Where would I find a buttplate to fit it? 5 3/8 x 1 3/4

Thanks...

Comercial sales stocks did not come with sling swivels. So they would not have a whole for one. My guess it's a civilian 40X bases on the 722 action for a heavy barrel. Not very common stock and a great find. Could of have several styles of butt pad. Does the butt have screw wholes or two long hollow wholes drilled into it? Donald
