Re: recommend a left hand bolt action rifle

Derek is correct. I would have been money ahead if I had done my build on a steller. By chosing a customer action your rifle smith will not have to spend time accurizing a factory action. My next build will do exactly as Derek has recomended.

Re: recommend a left hand bolt action rifle

+1 on the after martket action. Kirby is building a left handed 300WSM for me right now on a Borden Alpine Magnum action. The wait is killing me but I'm sure it will be well worth the it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I initially planned on using a 700 donor action for the build but as Kirby explained it...if i added a few hundred dollars to the cost of reworking the donor action I could get a brand new action that would be far better in the long run.


Kirby, PLEEEEASE HURRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well, I don't know if I'd go THAT far. A 700 in the hands of a gun builder who knows what to do with it turns out essentially a "custom" action on a factory base. But from now on all of my future rifles will be on custom actions bc I don't have anymore donor rifles.

The problem with Borden actions is he's a year to 18 months out getting one to you! Or he was last year anyway.
