Re: Affordable custom action?

Also remember that if or when you go to sell the the action whether incorporated in a rifle or not, the used, tricked out and trued 700 is NOT going to sell for as much as a custom after market action will. Which is a long way of saying your not going to get your money back you spent on the 700.

Re: Affordable custom action?

along with what the others have said about saving and getting a custom action.....

....i was in your position, i freaked when I saw the price of actions......then three weeks later I ordered a BAT......sometimes you just have to just have to bite the bullet and pull the trigger on a custom

Have you used one of their actions. Thats more in my price range. Will i really notice the difference between this factory trued r700 compared to a custom action, as far as a hunting rifle is concerned?

The 2 on the top of my list are Snowy Mountain Rifles and the Defiance Mutant.

Snowy Mountain will put together a whole custom package for a very reasonable price.

The Mutant has an integral recoil lug, fluted one piece bolt and M16 style extractor.

Re: Affordable custom action?

If you want a trued Rem 700 action, what kind of barrel are you putting in? Factory barrel?

I suggest that you look for used custom rifle and it is ready to shoot under .5 MOA.

Might be cheaper to buy a whole rifle instead of ordering each parts.
Just a thought.

Re: Affordable custom action?

I would second snowy mtn rifles best value out there in my book. They can build you a full on custom rifle for about what you would pay for a tricked out sendero.

We are talking match grade components , custom action, jewell triggers, bench mark barrels etc.... pretty dang hard to beat with a stick.
