Default basement find 40xb stocks?

I found these in my basement. Are they 40xb stocks? Will I be able to put one of the cmp 40xs in one? I think one is a repeater? The others seem to be for heavy barrel single shots.

Thumbs up Nice "find!"

Wanna trade basements??? Who knows what else could be lurking down there? The stocks in your pic appear to be for the "swept back bolt, 700 style" action and may limit your choice and utility. Pretty wood that deserves to be used.

The top two sure look like 40X stocks. Both my 40Xs have the cutout on the comb as do the top two stocks in the photos. This cutout allows the removal of the bolt.

2nd. pic.:
Top stock has longer short rail cut.
Middle is a bench rest flat bottom.
Lower is a repeater with standard short rail cut.
I agree that first pic. looks like they are cut for swept back bolts-700 style.
Nice find! Are living in a gun parts store?????? Any room for renters that have access to the basement?????????????????????

I had these for a few years, My father gave them to me to sell or keep. I wasn't sure what they were for. If they could be used for 40x 22caliber or if they were model 700 center-fire rifles. A friend of my fathers makes stocks and grips. I think these may have been patterns or samples from Remington. The wood was so nice I never could sell them and had no idea what they were worth but now I Can't wait to use them.

If you have a short action or long action 700, measure the hole spacing and it will tell you what they are. They do look nice.

All three stocks are for 700-based actions. The guard screw spacing for the short action is 6.5". The single shots take a 700adl type trigger guard, the repeater looks to be cut for standard bdl type bottom metal. The earlier 721/722 based actions will go into these stocks as well but may require a bit of wood removal in the safety area as well as an adl type triggerguard; the earlier type actions used the 721/722 triggerguard and had a flat shelf area to the stock just behind the bolt handle. There might be or not; a bit of wood adjustment needed to the bolt handle cut to put an early action into a later stock. The lighter barrel doesn't look out of place in the heavy barrel channel stock, just a little more clearance.

As mentioned by the other posters, they're all for the 40X-B with the swept back, model 700 type bolt. They are also made for centerfire actions. The rimfire action has a screw that secures the cartridge loading tray in the bottom of the loading port and the head of the screw projects from the bottom of the action. If you want to use these stocks on a rimfire, they will work but you'll have to drill a small hole about an inch forward of the trigger cut about 1/4" in diameter and about 1/8" inch deep to allow room for that screw head.
By the way, all 40-x's are the short action 722/700, even those made for 30/06 length or magnum length cartridges. Hope that helps.
