What are some ways to know for sure if a Remington 700 is a true BDL, not an ADL that was converted with a BDL stock? Do BDL's always have a jeweled bolt? I have what i think may be a conversion rifle that I got used. It has a BDL stock for sure, hinged floor plate, but no jeweled bolt and the stock doesn't fit properly and was poorly modified to get the action in (it seems).

The ADL usually has no floorplate at all.

You may have a BDL with a crappy (by your description) restock job.

Pictures might help.

So, is the stock ill fitting only around the floorplate?

No, it's a BDL stock and I beleive an aftermarket floorplate with an ADL action/barrel and there seems to have been some crappy dremel work in the rear of the stock above where the rear screw goes in behind the trigger guard.

Is it possible that the screw was just loose while the gun was being fired and the loose screw did its own damage to the wooden stock ?? But like I said, without pictures, I'm just guessing here.

Does it have a checkered bolt handle?

Factory BDLs usually have a checkered bolt handle as well as a jeweled bolt body. They also have a recessed target crown.
