You can't buy just an action as far as I know, But there are still Brownings and the newer
winchester rifles out there but you probably will have to pay around $1,000.oo dollars
The Browning's have a better finish (Blueing) than the Winchesters and better quality control.
I have built several rifles on these actions and they are diffacult but worth the trouble. (The
extractor slot is machined into the barrel tenion and has to be timed in also the barrel shank
has to be turned down to clear the forearm support tang.
These are very strong actions and make beautiful rifles
Good luck finding one and good luck on your build
