Surgeon Actions

I have been looking around and have come to a conclusion!
My next rifle is going to be a custom from A-Z. That will be cheaper and easier than the buildups I have done in the past.
My search begins for the component list. And it starts with the action.

What do you all think of the Surgeon actions?
Has anyone had any experience with them?
What do the 'smiths think of them?

The buildup will be aimed at a 800yd gun for mulies and smaller critters. Gun weight needs to be in the 10-12 lb. range for all day packing. I am thinking 6.5 or 270WSM.
I searched the site and found no specifics on these actions.
Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Surgeons only available in short action.

    Their tactical action weigs in at about two and a quarter pounds , If you think about it they make alot of sence , you don't have to have your bolt sleved or the action blue printed , you never have to wory about the scope base comming off and the recoil lug is intergrated which adds some length to the threads.
    I talked to them a bit about making an action out of Ti and so on right now the best they do to save weight is mill out the center of the scope base to make it a two piece style.
    Personaly I like the hell out of the looks and the idea

    IChasecoues , If you want a long range gun why don't you build a 7 mm STW or 7 mm that Kirby builds.My First coues was a 94 3/8's.

    I would also look at the Borden actions in both SA and LA. They come with the borden bumps, are Rem footprint, triggers and bottom metal. Tighter than Rem but totally reliable. Come in WSMs and Rums. Intro price is only $600 alpine and timberline models

    I can't say that had any experience with the Surgeon action, but I've stopped by and took a look at their actions. If I were going to build around a short action I would go with the Surgeon. I like the idea of having the scope rail/recoil lug as one. Correct me if I'm wrong but you could switch the barrels out easily with the surgeon action since the recoil lug is fixed.
