Kirby,

Is the action one piece, long out into the forend and then the barrel threaded on there? Or is it a sleeve around the barrel over the chamber? Is the action floating or still screwed into the stock? Sorry for the silly questions.

Impressive Kirby - talk about Rifle Envy.

That would look perfect in a 375AM.

I'm sure the action is not two-foot long. My guess is solid barrel blank which Kirby machines and threads at both the receiver and for the forward recoil lug. Then there is a threaded sleeve forward of the front recoil lug which secures that lug to the barrel. No sleeve between the two recoil lugs - just solid barrel. The two Rem-style recoil lugs are visible in the photos. But we'll see if Kirby corrects my guess.
