Re: Stiller Actions?

Might want to take a look at Shilen triggers too. I have been using them for years and really like them.

Re: Stiller Actions?

We ordered 3 Stiller actions and they work fine. We used 2 for 300 RUM and had no problems with the actions or the rails. They both shoot exceptional. We also decided on Jewel triggers over the Timney triggers, not that there is anything wrong with them, just a personally preference.

Re: Stiller Actions?

Stiller actions are great...mine is a 308 set up for pigs and what-nots...aka truck gun and it feeds flawless and cycles with ease.

I have the rail just because and went with the jewell as I like how they work the best for my trigger finger.

Just the other night went out and way-laid some hogs for perm sleep....

Re: Stiller Actions?

I went with a Stiller for my build as I was trying to keep costs to minimum. After having it for a while, I can see some of the minor issues that I have heard are not there on top tier stuff like the defiance. I doubt there would actually be much, if any accuracy difference, but they still bug me. One is that the ejector hole has micro rough edges that prematurely leave a slight ejector mark on my brass, which can make detecting pressure difficult. The other big one is that my bolt lugs are not making 100% contact. According to Stiller, lapping the lugs voids the warranty as well...

I am completely happy with their bases, but with high recoil guns and muzzle brakes, I would either pin or bed the base to the action.

If I had to do it again, I think I would open up the wallet and let loose of a few extra $$$ and get a Definace with the integral rail.

Just my $.02

Question? What kind of load does one use on "what-nots"? Are they big in your area?

1) for $930 shipped, but what worries me is that you have to use their rails, which do not have recoil lugs, and they use 6-48 screws, not 8-40. Does anyone have experience with these actions, especially on heavier calibers......
No you don't, Murphy Precision offers Stiller Rails in High quality SS or even Titanium in either 6-48 or 8-40. FAR superior to any Stiller rail i've held (I have 2 Stillers & both wear Murphy rails).

I wish I would have known that, both of mine are Sako extractors... I'd much rather have the M16, dern it

Good advice here, I will take my Shilen Match over my Timney any day... I do not like my Timney. IMHO the Shilen is closer to the Jewell than my Timney.
