The 40x use to come from the custom shop (I assume they still do) and fit and finish was
I have 2 40xs one in 308 and one in 30/338 and they both shoot better than I can.
The 40x actions are trued and the OD is turned completely round (If you look at some of
standard actions they are not 100% turned (Round).
They also have the best triggers that Remington makes (They are fully adjustable).
The 30/338 like the 300 Win Mag will not eject a loaded round unless you extend the ejection
port without using the bolt stop release. This has not been an issue and I like the short action
with the 27+" barrel.
Both of mine have hart barrels (Don't know who makes the match barrels for them now) but
if it is a hart it will have a hart stamped on the barrel by the proof marks.
The 40x comes in a single shot and a repeater.
I would not sell ether of mine .
If it is a good price BUY IT.
