I am glad you guys think my "home made" action turned out well. I would probably be scepticle to reading home made. I may have cheated a little, I have a couple Okuma CNC's to work with.

I had alot of fun making this. It will be very satisfying to get it back and hopefully take a trophy class animal with it.

I am gonna have to start working out or hire a caddy to carry the magazine.

    Get an FFL, i would seriously buy one. That thing looks AWSOME! i think as soon as you point that thing in the general direction of a trophy he will drop is antlers and wave a white flag while going the other way!

    Im still in highschool and therefore pretty ignorarant when it comes to college/uni coureses, what did you study or where did you get the skills do this kind of stuff?

    Oliver,

    I am glad you like it. I hope the horns dont fall off. Its hard to make an antler sandwich. They would make rather crunchy jerky.

    My degrees are industrial and mechanical engineering. However most if not all my machine shop expiernce came from doing an internship while in school. If you are really intrest in the machine shop trade there are some schools that teach truly hands courses. But most of your colleges teach more theroy than getting it done skills. Let me know waht your intrest are. I will try to point you in the right direction.

    Vince

    vintec,
    did you go with a .750 bolt, or something along the lines of a BAT action in a .717 bolt?

    Did you use a Sako extractor and is it in the bolt lug like a Lawton or above it like a Remington conversion?
    Plunger ejector?
    Tenon length diameter and thread pitch?

    By your description the bolt bore and raceway were plunge EDM cut as opposed to gun drilled and wire EDM cut. I don't think I have heard of any other actions done that way. I have heard of others considering doing it though.


    Very nice work by the way.
