Borden Timberline is top notch and reasonably priced for as good as it is. Stiller Predator is very good and probably the best priced especially if you get in on the group buy over on Sniperhide. Defiance Machine builds top notch actions . The Surgeon RLR is also very good and reasonably priced. IMO the Borden is the best of the bunch when you combine the quality for the price.

Dave Tooley's Orion is probably one of the best buys for the money. Couple threads here on them with pics. Tons of custom features and he is only one with melonite bolt right now.

Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

After having it side by side with a few of the actions mentioned, Pierce is worth a hard look.

Customs are ready to go. Most smiths will check them over to make sure but that is what you are paying for.

A Borden action will be better than a blueprinted Remmy, probably for less total money.

Give Jim a call and talk guns - I promise you'll be impressed about his knowledge and dedication to quality. (570) 965-2505
