Hey Kirby, have you had a chance to take a pic of my action, Lawton M8000. I would love to see her. I guess it's ok if everyone else see's it too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
I also have a question for Kirby, I ,am having a gun built with the8000 Lawton action, my smith tells me the maker of the clip is having trouble with them. I think it is made by Cheytec. Do you use the same one or something different?
Thanks for the info,Bruce is the smith that is making it. He is the one who said they are having trouble? I will be in his shop tomarrow. Hope it works out ok.My action is ready but we are waiting for the mag.
There is a special company that makes the magazines for the 408 C-T rifles. I had one in my shop several years ago looking to put it into one of my actions. The magazine would not feed up. I returned it to CheyTac for refund. Now CheyTac will not sell a mag. EDM arms uses the same magazine. I am working on a internal magazine system similar to a 700 BDl, only it will still be a single stack, prolly two shot capacity. Plenty for a long range hunter. Large shells like the 408 c-t will allways have some sort of feeding problems, the shells are big and have to feed quickly in a short distance. All things have to be perfect. The Magazine system i make for my rifles work very well as long as you dont get in a big hurry.
