    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
    for one.

    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

    FWIW, I have a Uberti 1885 which is a reproduction of the 1885 Winchester, it is chambered in 45-70 and is an absolute tack-driver with Winchester 300gr. jacketed hollow points. On several occasions at 100yds I have shot 3 rounds with all touching, this with a 3-9X44 scope. Great looking rifle too, by the way.
