Re: Lawton receivers in my hands!!!! Pics

Lerning,

Here is a pic of the extractor on the M7000 bolt.



The scope base is unique to the Lawton receiver. You will need to get one from them but from what I see they are extremely high quality and much less expensive then say a NF or Badger Ord rail base. A steal in my opinion. They have to front 8-40 screws and two rear 8-40s holding the rail base down solidly!

Wow, with tolerances this close to the BAT action I expect to see great things when you put the barrel on Kirby.

It is a real pity that we do not have a UK importer of these actions, they look almost too good to be true (if you'll pardon the pun)

It is a nice touch to have horizontal extraction as opposed to the Sako upward lift, which has caused many a dent in my own thin walled cases.

Excellent and informative post Mr Allen (again) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Kirby,
You will need to cut at least 1 inch off the muzzle, that's normal. If you want it to finnish at 30", you can cut more from the muzzle or the chamber end. You will want to pay attention to the flutes so you don't run out of room for a brake if you want one. Also, there isn't a blamed thing different about that barrel compared to others we put out, I was just razzing you.
Yes the bolts for the 8000s come standard with flutes. You can get them either way, just say so when you order. The 8000 actions are on par with the 7000 actions in that they are not BR actions. They are ment to be users, that said, there's nothing wrong with making a good user.


I don't jerk the trigger, I just squeeze it faster some times.

Scott

I have # 31 on the Lawton 7500 and it is really tight. That is my only gripe, it is too tight in the bolt area and hangs up closing. Nothing a little polishing will not soon take care of.

Had it about two months on a 6 BR DS (ack imp) and will definitely buy another.

BH,
If you want to send it back, I'll lap it in for you. That sn is before we started lapping in the bolts. Now all complete recievers are lapped.
