Here comes the JUGGERNAUGHT in a 338AM repeater

Hey guys just wanted share my homemade action with you. For the last year or so I have been kicking around the idea of machining my own action from scratch. So as I could find some free time at the shop or I could sneak some time in I created my Juggernaught.

Here some are quick specs
416SS reciver, 4140 bolt EDM bore and lug race way
one piece bolt (well handle screws in) so it kind of has a rear lug
built in recoil lug
the top of the action has a ridge that will add stiffness .

I am pretty happy overall with everything, there are a few things I would change if I were to do another, all cosmetic.

I will be shipping it out to Kirby this week, to have him build me 338 Allen Mag. It should be a monster!!!!!

I hope these pics post
