Look at some pics from these two sites and it will give you an idea.
Falling block action with interchangeable barrels. Free-floated barrels. More compact than a bolt rig, great trigger pulls-adjust it yourself easily.

Re: Pistol action Pros and cons

I like my target action the most, I have shot 1 deer so far offhand and it killed her good! I do have a rear grip xp project in the works, but it might be a while till I'm shooting it... I think for a guy getting into LR pistols the target action is hard to beat, you can change caliber in a few min and they shoot great. I wish I was able to shoot at extended ranges more, then I'd really know how well it can group! The MOA's are great, but I'm not that big on waiting

The wait time on a MOA is a lot less than it was a year ago.

Good! Rich is a great guy and I like his gun, the wait has been the only complaint I've ever really heard.

Re: Pistol action Pros and cons

This thread is very timely, because I was thinking of getting a semi-LR pistol for Indiana deer hunting. (2010)

Is the Savage Custom shop still building Strikers? I like the left hand bolt, and the idea of a magazine because of some of the hunting that I do might require a quick 2nd or 3rd shot. The deer could be anywhere from right below the stand out to 400 or so yds, and we are supposed to shoot the first 3 deer that we can reliably shoot, (but only one can be a buck). While I can see that a single shot can be reloaded relatively quickly, there could be times where the less movement to reload, the better.

Last I heard Savage Custom shop will build a Striker. After hearing the cost, one can pick up a used Striker on Gunbroker for less than half the cost. Yes, all factory Strikers (unaltered) came with a magazine.

Seems to me from reading a number of threads over the years that Indiana is cartridge specific on their handgun hunting requirements.

Good luck in your endeavor
