Re: stiller predator vs. lawton 7500.

That is correct, the receiver threads are 1/4" longer as is the bolt lug and head.

The recoil lug as such is positioned 1/4" farther ahead as well but everything else is identical to a Rem 700. It is a simply process to mill the recoil lug recess 1/4" farther ahead and then simply bed the receiver with marine tex and your none the different.

The longer thread section and longer bolt head are simply advantages over the other M700 clones. I rate the M7500 that I have on my medium heavy 7mm AM, the one I used in Idaho with Shawn C this last fall as equal to that of a Nesika Bay M receiver as a single shot.

Only thing is that I wish the M7500 came as a repeater but dimensionally that is not possible for techical reasons.

Simply put, its easy to drop in an M7500 into a Rem 700 stock in most cases. Do not let that turn you away from the M7500.

Re: stiller predator vs. lawton 7500.

I am getting one of their new tactical long actions and should have it in a couple of weeks. I think the lead time on the actual predator is about the same.

I'm building a 338 edge on this receiver. It will wear an HS tactical stock, an ABS carbon bbl finished @ 26" (if we can find Mike) and a Jewell trigger set @ 1.5#. Going to use the HS bottom metal and box as well. Maybe I'll have something that won't kill me to carry around.

Re: stiller predator vs. lawton 7500.

The Stiller Predator is advertised as a "hunting action". That is why you see the tolerances open up a little - its designed to be dragged through the mud, snow, and dirt then put a bullet behind the shoulder of an animal. The Lawton 7000 will do this also.

In my opinion, the Lawton 7500 and some of the other high end actions are built to be benchshooters w/ ultra tight tolerances, which produce ultra tight groups. There are alot of good actions out there, you just have decide what its purpose is going to be.
