I just wanted to post some pictures of how the Surgeon actions are made, the first pic is a before and after pic the 10-1/2" long pc of 4340 round stock on the left comes in to the shop 20ft long. This makes the action to the right of it. It is around 15 lbs or so when it starts out and winds up under 2 lbs. The bolt on the right is already started but you can see it comes in as retangle stock and is machined to make a bolt 1 pc instead of the multiple pc bolt like the Rem.The mill in the back ground is turning 12000RPM and cutting at 240 inches per min on a action that has already been heatreated to 40hrc. We do all the finish machine after heatreat.
This is a pic of the Rem beside the Surgeon. The one pc design makes it a lot stiffer. The inside of the action is cut out using a wire EDM. This cost around $300 to do vrs $15 to have the inside broached. But the broach can't keep up with the accuracy of a EDM. This is why we feel ours is as straight and true as any out there.
This is a pc of actions in the inspection area. We sold mostly to the tactical comunity untill someone got the bright idea that a single shot would make a neat F class gun. The "Target" model has a larger bolt diameter and is not designed to be in a dirty enviroment. With the Target model we set a record in tulsa with the F class gun on the front page of our website. 600 53X This was with the larger targets 1 moa x ring, before they reduced the size of the x ring to 1/2moa.
This is a pic of some tactical rifles we built.
We are going to build some long range hunting rifes. .243 1-8 twist and 6.5 1-8.5 twist. in the next few months.
