[QUOTE=.308ltr;431328if 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. [/QUOTE]
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.
