I was thinking the same thing ;) but as I am in Kanuckistan, getting it across the border would be pure unadulterated HE11 !

Later.....

Looks to me to be 2 actions in the pic also. Very nice craftsmanship to produce an action that looks as good as any custom out there. Gorgeous.

James,

The extractor is above the lug like a conversion. Pluger is located in the 3 oclock postion.

Tenon length is 1.7" 1.1875x16tpi

The hole was drilled then wire EDM cut. Wire cutting like watching paint dry, I could not imagine using a ram edm to plunge thur. Sorry should have clarifed.

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.


James

Not quite a spare, it is differnt size. That one is 9.25" OAL I am going to use it for a Lapua based repeater. It also has .750 bolt, but the lugs are only .700 long. The big one has .800" long lugs they are alomst as big as the lugs on a TAC50. But the .700" long lug is still plenty for a Lapua or even a CT.

I am also working building me a smaller action for bench rest. ( the guys on the bench next to me love my Juggernaught #1 in a 338RUM) LOL

I am thinking a dual port short action. Based on the same basic design. I should have the soild model ready in the next few days. The I will print one off using a rapid prototype machine. (basicaly a 3D printer) I will post some pics as I make some progress.

I did some design work this weekend, working on my dual port short action, same basic design. It is 1.35" wide and has 1.5 " of barrel tenon. I have my CAD drawing in solid model. If someone could tell me how to save a screen image in a format I can post I will put it up
