If you only want the action from the rifle, there are cheaper options. I picked up a nice complete .243 a couple weeks ago for $375 shipped to me. I only wanted the action and trigger. The SPS Tac is a decent deal at $500, but I'm just saying there are cheaper options if your just looking for a action.
Also, take a look at Scout Supply Company. Russel has a Stage 1 accuracy package where you get the SPS Tac from him and be has already trued/squared the action, set back and recut the chamber on the factory barrel with a PTG match reamer, recrowned the barrel, and threaded it for a brake/suppressor with a custom thread protector. All this work plus the rifle for $825. For slightly more, he can also do the same work, but add a custom barrel and chamber to your choice of calibers.
I'm not a "factory" remington fan but the SPS tactical can shoot .3-.4moa with little work. The barrel is a 20" 12 twist and the stock is a Hogue overmold, and the trigger is a $hitty xmark. Buy it, have it completely bedded, lugs lapped, recrowned, and put a Rifle Basix, Timney, or Jewell trigger in it with a Tubbs or PTG speedlock because the factory pin spring is likely as crooked as a politician. You do for say about an extra 350$ and you may never want to do anything else to it. You want a 260 done the way it should be buy a Savage model 12LRP, 26" 8 twist, HS stock, trigger adjustable down to 6 ozs, dbm, couldn't ask for much more for under a grand, my local guy said 840 out the door, msrp is like 1250 or so.
Hey guys, thanks for all the advice! I will say one thing about the bolt, its as smooth as glass and it is bascially brand new so there isnt one scuff. But as far as the trigger. Its crap. The hogue stock is SUPER crap. The barrel is okay if you want a .308 (which I plan on shooting the s*it out of it until I can afford to have some of the barrel work done to convert it to a .260.) but I cant find a rem 700 SA receiver for under 500 anywhere and I may be able to sell that barrel/stock if I find someone who wanted it before I shoot it out.

I know the fibergalss stocks are WAY nicer. They feel better, they're more reliable, but... guns can shoot really good with injection molded ore wood laminates. So I would get all the important stuff out of the way before dropping big bills on a stock. Trigger first. Then the action blueprint/rebarrel. Then the stock.
