:D Hi,I am about to buy a 40X in .30/06,I plan on putting a Redfield Palma sight set on it.My questions are;do you have to have a gunsmith drill and tap for this or is it automatically done at the factory?Also,do you have either the rifle or the sights for sale(new or used)?And finally,do you need a base for either the front or rear sights?Thank you,Jeff,276-783-9746.

Redfields on 40-X

Hi Jeff

Many Rems come drilled and tapped for the appropriate bases (or they USED to...). Either way, you'll need a rail (made by Redfield or others) mounted on the side of the receiver by two screws. For the front, if there's not already a base attached rather than drill & tap, buy a "band" type base from Mo's or Champions Choice or Creedmoor Sports. These just encircle your muzzle and are held on with two more screws. Scott Medesha of Apache Junction, AZ is a good source for all these things too.

When you get to pricing sights, make sure you're sitting down first.

Best of luck!
