I have a 700 and the bags fit perfectly. You never know they're there.
*When they are new, they work very well, however, as they age, the zipper starts to stick and later if you pull too hard, the zipper will lose its ability to tie both sides in. Best thing to do is when the zipper starts to stick, spray some W-D 40 along the two sides. Also, the black looks so nice when new, but if you use it in the sun or in a mixture of different kinds of weather, it'll fade pretty bad. Thought about using RIT, but I'm not sure the coloring will stain whatever you put in the bag. My suggestion is to have SOME type of waterproofing option, at least a waterproof cover, and to have a better performing zipper. They're out there. : )
