howdy snipers. i was wondering if it is possible to modify a UTG M324 into a M40A1/A3?
i know the the M40 family is made out of Remington 700 rifles, but i've been told that there are no good Remington 700s on the market.

well, first you will need to get a vsr series rifle, because i don't think that will fit a a utg m324.

The VSR is modeled after the M700.

If you don't have a budget, here is the tanaka M40a1: http://www.airsoftsmith.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=21_60&products_id=542

the M40A3 is only based off the M700. there are a few modifications

i've pasted this directly from wikipedia.

M40A3

Development of the M40A3 began in 1996, and the final product was revealed in 2001.[3] Since then, numerous minor changes have occurred to the platform. It is highly possible that more changes will occur to the platform as it gains operational use in Iraq and Afghanistan. Listed here is the latest configuration known to be used in an M40A3.

Action: The M40 has always been based on the proven Remington 700 Short Action and this is no different in the M40A3.[4] These actions are all chambered in 7.62 mm NATO and are house tuned by Marine armorers; the trigger guard assembly is manufactured by the DD Ross Company, though several M40A3s use Badger Ordnance trigger guards.[3] In 2007, the Marine Corps began replacing the DD Ross trigger guard assemblies with the M5 detachable magazine trigger guard manufactured by Badger Ordnance.[4]

Barrel: The barrel is a Schneider 610 /24-inch, 6-groove, 1:12" match-grade heavy barrel.[5][4]

Stock: All service M40A3s are based upon the A4 Tactical Riflestock, a high-quality benchrest-style fiberglass riflestock made by McMillan Fiberglass Stocks and cast molded in an OD Green color.[5][3] The action is glass bedded into the stock with aluminum pillars, while the barrel is allowed to "float" (it is attached only to the action), ensuring maximum accuracy. The stock has adjustable length-of-pull (through a buttstock spacer system) and a Marine manufactured adjustable saddle-type cheekpiece.[5] The stock also has six mount flush cups, two on each side front and back and one each on the front and rear underside.[3] One bipod stud is located on the underside of the forearm.[5]

Sling: The Model 1907 sling that has been historically used on M40A3s has been replaced with the Quick Cuff Model Two sling manufactured by Tactical Intervention Specialists.

Bipod: The M40A3s use a 69" Harris notched swivel type bipod with a KMW podlock.[5] The QD bipod attaching screw is replaced with a screw made by Jon Tank of Tanks Rifle Shop.

Dayscope: A modified Schmidt & Bender 312 50 Police Marksman II LP rifle scope with illuminated reticle has replaced the Unertl MST-100 10 fixed day scope, previously used on both the M40A1 and M40A3.[5] This dayscope is mounted with Badger Ordnance USMC M40A3 34mm scope rings, which utilize a standard ring in the rear and a wider MAX-50 ring in front.[3] The standard front ring cap is replaced with a SPA-Defense B634 34mm Male Dovetail, as a mounting platform for the Simrad KN200 Night Vision Weapon Sight. The scope and rings are mounted on a DD Ross 30 minute-of-angle lugged Picatinny rail.[3][

Yeah but if you want a M40a3 replica then you could just get a VSR and the M40a3 stock if you could find one.

If you wanted a M40a1, the Tanaka would be the most accurate choice, but you could also just add a cheekcomb on a normal VSR.

Lol Tanakas have not been over $700 in a looong time. I don't even know if they were.

Also the title is incorrect, its a M40a1. Notice the pre painted stock. Its supposed too replicate the McMillan stocks that they swapped out for the wood ones. It also has the cheek comb, beleive me I have held it, its a M40a1.
