Off topic, but; I don't believe I have ever seen a Rem 700, 'cheap', in a pawn shop (or a 77, or a 70).
With a title like this thread has, a guy could find himself on a "red flag' list if he lives in one of the 17 states that have enacted them.
You're joking, right?! That Grizzly chuck doesn't have anything a Buck or a PBA has, except a lot more error built into it. Let 'er whip!
Before I just "ordered one from PT&G" I'd call the other reamer makers. Someone may have one on the shelf they can alter for you.

As long as the motor is not burned up, put a new drum switch on. Several on e-bay
There are still those who make stocks by hand, from a blank. Some make a fine living at it, but not many. Not all gunsmithing is machine work,...
addition to the above post, " that fit together without alteration". You don't even have to set the gap on spark plugs anymore, they come pre-gapped.
That was not a proposal by ATFE. That was an addition to regulations set forth by DDTC (Doctorate of Defense Trade Controls), a division of the...
