Another vote for the Defiance (Made in the Big Sky Country by an innovator )!

    Did that include the bolt?

    Yep, Nate puts a PTG bolt in with accel firing pin, times the bolt handle, flutes the bolt. Glenn builds the action body to Nate's specs. He has done this with my lawton 7000 action, Pheonix, and my Defiance. They were all around the same price complete. They are all nice actions, but the Defiance is my favorite.

    I just bought a complete Defiance long action with extended tenion, polished, one piece deep fluted bolt, #8 mounts screw holes and bolt release. It was about $400 more than yours.

    Awesome action! fit and finish is great.

    Guys I went back and found the reciept to make sure and it is $775(ordered in first part of '09). When I build I visit with Nate on what I want. He tells me what problems I might face with the components and warns me of potential issues. We get a build planned and I let Nate order all components. It usually takes a year or better this way, but I know the end result will be outstanding. If you look on his website he has some video of timing and attaching bolt handles. I didn't realize all the work that is involved in making a rifle function flawlessly. I am sure most others offer the same service, but this one only lives 35miles from me.
