Incorrect. Jim Borden did not design Nesika Actions.
In fact, Jim Borden's actions are produced in the Nesika Plant. Honest truth.

I was just going to post that the features you described of the Nesika is exactly that of the Borden Rimrock,bumps and all. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
What I know for sure about the Rem footprint actions of Bordens is that the bodies are 15-5PH,the bolts are either 4340 or 4142 and all is hardened prior to machine work.I do know that Jim aquired a machine to cut bolt raceways that didnt work out,so at least the first production run was EDM'ed (so it might be they were contracted out to Nesika to be EDM'ed?)The action threads are also 1.625x18.There was whole post on another forum about timing an action,which Jim will do on all the actions that leave his shop and he took the time to explain the reasoning behind it,as did Chad.
Chad,in my previous post I wasnt equating time of delivery with quality,just that Jim had production problems and the delivery of the actions was well behind schedule.When I ordered the Nesika I posted previously about,the local gunshop owner put me on the phone directly with Richard and I was told delivery would be 3 months and thats exactly what it was,as promised.Im not about to BS anyone that the Alpine I have or the Timberline Im getting has all the qualities of a higher end custom.But is the money I spent on these two actions head and shoulders above a trued Rem?
IMO,every cents worth.
