Browning actions

Can someone please explain to me why there are so very few custom rifle builds on Browning actions? I own an A-bolt stainless stalker in .270, love the short bolt throw and have had good accuracy from it, but would love to build a long range unit in 6.5-284 from it.

Re: Browning actions

The REAL reason is because there is nowhere NEAR the amount of aftermarket options a ailable to customize one. You are very limited on stocks, and picatinny rails, etc...

I am fixing to custom my A-Bolt II Composite Stalker 7mm RemMag with a new barrel, EGW rail, TPS rings, and several other custom touches. I have already done the Rifle Basix 1.5lb trigger spring, and that made worlds of differences. For $18.99 you can't possibly beat that little mod.
