I have a Remington 700ML. It came with a breech plug wrench that I cannot find. I am finding it equally difficult to find anything to replace it. The manual suggests a 5/16 thin wall deep socket which I cannot find. Has anyone got any suggestions on where to find a wrench for this.

Thanks

I'd figure Sears, Home Depot or Lowe's to carry a deep socket like that. Its not an unusual piece at all.

When I need a thin wall socket, I put a bolt through the socket with the head of the bolt inside of the socket, then put a flat washer and a nut on the other end. Tighten the bolt, then you can put the thread of the bolt into a drill press and turn it on. While it is spinning, sand the outside of the socket with a sanding disc untill it is thin enough to fit into the hole that you need to use it in. If you don't have access to a drill press, you can use a regular drill held in a vise. Hope this helps you.
