    Fellas and ladies are there any parts upgrades for a 308 Remington 770? for example a metal trigger guard & a wood stock or synstock -my trigger guard appears to a molded part of the existing stock. How about increased capacity mags??

    You already got the mag answer but to answer the other questions is no, there is nothing for it. Its of its own design and no one supports it. I presume one could retrofit a stock too one but it would be sloppy. The value of them is so low that I've had people not even bother wanting to fix them.

    Accuracy will be about minuite of deer. Seriously, expect about 2" group (3 shots) at 100 yds. Accurate enough for hunting, for target shooting expect groups to open up as the rifle heats; it was not built for extended shooting sessions.
    Treat the gun halfway decently and it will be a good hunting gun for years.

    If you Free Float the Barrel you will gain some more accuracy. Been able to get just under an inch out of the Rem 770 308. Take care of it and it works very well.
