i was wondering how do you tell the difference between a stainless remington 700 bdl and sps? thanks
one is wood and the other is synthetic stocked?
Bdl should be gloss finish with open sights or at least tapped for them. Sps should be matte finish or parkarized finish no open sights
Sorry that's on blued not stainless. I didn't think they made a Bdl in stainless
That is correct, BDL was never made in stainless. BDL is gloss wood stock with floor plate. ADL had non gloss stock with No floor plate. SPS was synthetic black stock with no floor plate and matte finish barrel. Hope this helps. Only select few actions still made in BDL model. CDL replaced a lot of discontinued calibers.
Ok so say someone had a model 700 chambered in 30.06, with a black synthetic stock, black matte finish barrel, and floor plate?
That's an ADL
Even tough it's synthetic and has a floor plate?
Yep.........according to labels at Wally anyway
Roger that. I don't really care what it is, I've just been curious. I love the thing.
That's not completely correct.
My last 700 I owned .... Was a model 700 BDL / SS - DM in 270 win.
I bought new in the early 90's ... It was synthetic stock with molded checking just like the wood stocked BDL's. It had a stainless receiver & barrel ..... with a detachable box magazine instead of a hinged floor plate.
Which I've owned a wood stocked BDL before this gun ... I sold it just a few years ago. But as of now I don't own any Remington centerfires. However ... they did make stainless / synthetic BDL's along with models listed as Mountain Rifles and a few others than the BDL , CDL or ADL we usually relate to the 700.
Google 700 BDL SS- DM .... you will see better pics than this .... which below is a not so good pic of mine when I owned it.

Adl don't have floor plates if you rifle does it should be a sps with floor plate Adl from what I see in my book and what I've seen over the years are top load only from factory.
Right. ADL has a blind magazine and can be wood or synthetic stock, unless the bottom metal was swapped for aftermarket. Rough black oxide coating exists on both ADL and SPS.
I do not know this as a fact but I believe Remington has made at least limited runs of about every combination of model 700's possible.
