Re: New ideas for short action rem 700 in Boyd\'s stock
[ QUOTE ]
UncleB, go measure what I mentioned about receiver stiffness, if you know how. If you don't know how, that's fine by me but find someone who knows how and have them do either the static or dynamic measuring for you. Then believe the results.
I've measured 'em so I know the difference. So have others in the know.

I take it from your response that you were serious but still have the joke book in your back pocket.
1st off I will bet you cant find ONE credible gunsmith on this forum (Fiftydriver,Chris Matthews,Pete Lincoln and many others) that would even back one word of this dribble.
Every gunsmith I have ever dealt with wont put on longer than a 32" barrel without somekind of a barrel block device because the reciever cant handle it because of the stress even with the finest custom actions. you say a Rem shorty can handle a 6 foot barrel (1") this is VERY interesting (if not amusing and ponderous) but a model 70 being 3 times stronger than a 700. You are telling me you can put a 18 foot long barrel on a WIN action.!!!!!!!!!!!! Dude you need to back away from the hemp sober up and have a taste of the real world.
Len ,I am sorry but I could not let the Junior or Naive readers of this forum believe this crap
