Saguaro actions

Although this action is not designed for long range big game, it is for short range BR. It also would make a fine varmint rifle. The action is similar to the popular Kelbly Panda but has 1.0625 inches removed from the middle to make a nice short aluminum/steel insert-type action. I am in the process of testing it for Precision Shooting Magazine and have had excellent accuracy from it. The rifle I have was put together by Gary Ocock and features a 13.5 twist Krieger barrel chambered for the 6mm PPC. Attached is a picture of this fine looking (and shooting) rifle. James Mock

Re: Saguaro actions

The action is very much like a Panda with a steel insert in the locking lug area and another where the bolt handle hits the action body (cam area). It is 1.0625 inches shorter than the Panda. James

Re: Saguaro actions

That is some nice shooting right there. Nice setup as well. Look forward to hearing more.

Although "Isaac" has the rain pouring down as I type this, I have had a chance to shoot the Saguaro some more. Here is my friend, Richard Milton, giving it a try. It has been very accurate with a variety of loads. James

This rifle is amazingly accurate. Gary Ocock did a superb job barreling and bedding this fine action. Here is picture of the latest group that I shot. James
