Re: New Build! first build.

See for me, money is an issue. I am 18 and about to start school. I have been saving for this project for a little while but i need the extra cash for school. I didn't buy a remington action/gun, my uncle had purchased a Remington 700 BDL and then he retired from hunting. The gun has barely been shot, in absolute perfect condition and he handed it down to me as a gift. I figured it would be the perfect doner action and would save me some doe. Thats why i chose remington.

    Nothing wrong with that logic.

    Yes, the Remington will work great for a donor action. Forget all the fancy bolts and fluting. You don't need it to have a tack driver. One option for you may be to take a look at Pac-Nor barrels for pricing and installation. They do a great job of truing the action and barrel installation for $300 plus the price of the barrel. Next, all you have to do is install your trigger and optics, then bed it into the stock of your choice and start load development. Aside from optics, you could be into this rifle for less than $1000 more dollars if you choose your parts wisely.

    Matt is it a long or short action? Do you have a good stock already?

    Man that's reaching high for a kid on a budget!

    If you do give their new A3 sporter a hard look. I may one day decide I can afford one.



    If you decide to lower the budget a little and get to needing a stock drop me a line. I've got an extra Sendero stock I'd let you have very reasonably.

    Re: New Build! first build.

    I realize my budget is high especially for a young kid trying to pay for school, but I have put money aside for both, saved up and spoke with Kevin at MCR and I got everything worked out in a decent price range. I worked hard and it's what I want, so McMillan it is.

    I like the look of the standard a3 vs the sporter
