Re: 338 Lapua Savage Action for $495.00
The problem is... do they want to undercut the sales of their complete rifles by selling the actions only?
The last six months to a year, many (most) times when I see someone ask about buying a Savage 12 F-Class, F/TR, Palma, BR, whatever... some well meaning souls tell them 'you can build your own cheaper', and give them a list of pieces, parts, and sources for said. Yes, Savage sells an action. But they don't sell a complete rifle, which is really what they are in business for. So what are their options? Raise the price of the actions until they won't under cut their main business, or stop selling the bare actions entirely. I don't really like either option, personally, but I can't fault people trying to help their fellow shooters save money either.
