Re: Action to use for custom rifle

With the scale I have Id say its pretty close to what Jim specs it at on his web site (33.25 ounces).Its weighs a little heavier because of the trigger thats already on it.Are you going with the other bolt handle option hes going to be offering?

Borden Rifles

I can promise you Jim Borden did not design the Nesika Action. This is an urban legend of sorts. There was a time when Nesika and Jim were in cahoots with one another, but that time has come and gone.

Jim makes a great receiver. No one doubts this.

So does Nesika.

The truth is its tough to find a modern custom action that is junk these days. Damn tough.

Buy the product that "does it" for you and go enjoy your rifle.

Good luck.
