If you were going to go with either of these two actions which would you go with? If you have used either of these actions what did you like and dislike about it? thanks.

Re: stiller predator vs. lawton 7500.

I believe the Lawton 7000 would be more comparable to the Preditor.
I have a 7500 dual port on the way so that should tell you what I think.
If I were building a hunting rifle I would go with the Lawton 7000. The tolerances on the 7500 could cause problems in the field. Without looking I am sure the 7000 is less expensive than the Predator.
I know Kirby did some measuring tests on the 7000. I would be interested if he has had a Predator in his hands to compare them.

Re: stiller predator vs. lawton 7500.

I have a couple stillers in my shop right now. I would say they compare pretty much the same to the M7000 Lawtons in squareness. They will range from 0.0002" to 0.0008" in variation across the bolt face to the receiver face and anywhere in between these ranges from what I am seeing.

The M7500 receiver on the other hand that I have was extremely square, right at 0.0001" variation. Kind of like comparing apples to oranges however. One is an ecomony line custom replacement for a Rem 700 (Stiller Predator) and the other is the companies long range BR receiver(Lawton M7500).

For my money comparing those two receivers I would go with the Lawton M7500 from what I am seeing actually measuring receivers but that is not to say the Stiller will not make a fine rifle, us gunsmiths are just a bit anal about those last few ten thou of an inch values!!!

Bill what's the lead time on a Predator.
And is the project secret or can you tell us what your building.
My plans are for a 6mm Talldog, not a longrange round.
Centrepunch thanks I knew I read that somewhere, just couldn't remember where.

If I remember correctly Barney told me that the tenon on the 7500 is 1/4" longer than the 700(making them not an exact drop in replacement). Are the 7000s the same as the 7500 in that regard.
