Re: 223/22 hornet length actions

If you can find a Remington 700 Short action for the 222,223,221 have a spacer in the mag
box for the small cartridges. Also the mod 7 for the 222, 223 and 221.

Any short action Remington will work but these are easer and require little or no work .

If you can find a Sako S 491 in 223 it is a good choice and they are very short.

Hope this helps.

Re: 223/22 hornet length actions

it does somewhat. i didnt think about the sako, but i am not interested in the 700, as i hate the entire action, not your fault you didnt know, butalso i am looking for the dedicated actions which are shorter than short actions. found the cooper model 38, but not sure i can justify the cost. any thoughts or expeerience with this action or any others?

I,m not sure why you hate the Remington but that is your business. All that I know is that in the hands of a skilled Gun Smith they can/will shoot with anything and most of the custom actions are cloned
after the 700 action.

The only other action I can think that is shorter is the falling blocks like the 1885 low wall Winchester.

The entire action is around 3 inches long.

I have a 22 k hornet on one made in 1888 with a Lilja barrel and it is amazingly accurate.

I don,t know much about the coopers but they have a good reputation.

Good luck on your project.

I think he's on a "never ending quest" for a dedicated, cheaply priced action. Like J.E said,,,, good luck!

Re: 223/22 hornet length actions

I read this thread, and the first action to pop up in my mind was the Mark X, "Mini Mauser". (if they are still being made) A very similar design to the CZ, but also kind of petit!
