Default m-21

I have a buddy that wants to build some M-21 Remingtons ( I think that is the right nomenclature) He is looking for someone who can mill stripper clip slots in the receivers. Any help would be appreciated.

I dont really know what you guys want as it seems your not sure either.
The M21 is a M14 rifle that was accurized.
The M24 is a Remington 700 precision military-only sniper rifle but is NOT clip slot cut. It also has a unique 5R barrel.
The Marine M40 series is a Marine made Remington 700 that IS clip slot milled.

For the amount of time, money and effort required to do this right you are not going to crank out accurate rifles like one can build ARs.
Tell your buddy to buy a Chandler rifle and be done with it.

Thanks for the information. I was talking to him at the Gunshow yesterday and couldn't remember for sure what he was trying to build. I'll pass on the information to him. Thanks again.

I would suggest too the M40rifle.com and Sniperhide.com forums.

Those guys are heavily into cloning the new sniper rifles. There are lots of build guides there with pictures on the newer sniper platforms.

I think mostly what you are trying to do, you will find a ton of info there.

Raven Rifles, Raven6 at www.m40Rifle.com, has built me two rifles and he has studied the clip slot cuts, different variations of USMC thumb cuts.

He does a great job and builds an accurate rifle.

This is Marks website....
