The last rifle I built I made it from a savage action and did all the work except the barrel and brake work. That was a lot of fun and I would like to go that route this time around. So.... do I understand correctly that you can order an action from northland shooters supply and they will mark it as a pistol action? If this is the case couldn't you use any savage action as far as getting it to go into a stock? This brings me to my second question. I like those McMillian stocks where the grip is in the center of the stock. I really hate the wait and price with Mcm though, any other resources that you guys would recommend for a stock would be appreciated. Thanks,
I have never gone through the process myself with the non-designated actions, but yes, you can do that, but I do not know the specifics.
The problem with using the Savage target action is that there is no linkage system to set-up a center-grip trigger system. The action is also longer than the XP so I do not think it work anyway.
You are pretty much stuck with a rear-grip set-up using the Savage Target action. Joel Russo and Neal Cooper make several different stocks for specialty handgun actions. I would contact both of them to see what they offer and then choose the one you believe will fit your wants the best.
What cartridge are you thinking about?
