Lawton Actions and Barrels

Hey guys, what do you guys think about Lawton Actions and Barrels. I would like to hear from individuals on this site. Any information would be great. A friend of mine has a brand new Model 8000 Lawton action and a 29" Lawton barrel. He has to sell them do to financial reasons and divorce, he is giving them away. I am thinking about buying them, so I would like to hear all of your input about this equipment.

Thanks
Wildcat

Re: Lawton Actions and Barrels

I am going to try that receiver for my 338 AM. I talked with Barney a couple days ago and really liked what I heard from him about all his receivers.

If they are as quality as he says they are I can see all my APS rifles being built around them unless my customers ask for something else specifically.

More to come on that.
