What about Kimber? Winchester? FN? I want to try something a bit different.
About ninety percent of my factory guns, or custom guns are remy actions. Easy to work with, and smiths are usually tooled to work them. Of recent, I have acquired a custom shop Winchester, and two post 64 Winchester rifles. The triggers are awesome, and very adjustable, and the actions are very strong, well built, and smooth. My Sharpshooter is a custom shop sweetheart, and is perfect in every sense of the word. I would NOT hesitate to use one of the other Winchester actions to do a build with. I actually like them in some ways better then the remmys due to the flat bottom. That makes bedding a little more tighter. In my book, you can't go wrong with the Winchester action. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.
Good luck on your build!!
