New CNC\'d machined Remington 700 Clones by Mike Rock

When I had my rifle rebarrled by Mike Rock at Rock Creek barrels last winter, he mentioned he was working on his own remington type action. I just talked with Mike. He will have Remington 700 cloned actions clones available (left and right hand action) ready by the end of this month. They are not mentioned on his web site yet, but give him a call and he'll be glad to fill you in on all the details.

These actions will not have to be trued. They a being manufactured on CNC machines and are being held to highest tolerences possible.

There will also be different options that will be available. Here are just a few...
3 different sized actions; extra short, short & long
Any size bolt face
Sako or regular extractor
regular or 3-position safety
standard or extra long thread length
5/16 inch thick recoil lug (pinned)

Prices will start in the mid $500.00 range.

I'm going to have George Gardner at GA Percision build my new 300 WSM on a one of Mike's new left-handed actions this winter.

Hope it helps,

Rock Creek Barrels

I would hope they're carbon steel.

I hope Mike would quit telling big windies. He has been promising actions for a long time so I wouldn't hold your breath guys. I hope I am wrong, but George and I spent a week this June at Mike's shop and he promised us he wasn't doing anything else other than making barrels- sticking to what he does best.

Re: New CNC\'d machined Remington 700 Clones by Mike Rock

Mike has been telling people about this action he is making for 5 years now. I have been to his shop several times and I have never seen any custom Mike Rock Actions, prototypes, anything. I even have 3 or 4 guys waiting to buy them. I believe this is a more of a wish on Mikes part. But lets give it another 5 years and see what happens. I would call Nesika in the mean time they already do a nice tight 700 clone.

Well George,

I guess we'll have to talk about using a different action for my 300 WSM project. I'll be in KC on business in a couple weeks and I'll stop by at the shop again and see if we can't get everything set up.
