Yep.... it'll work just fine... Many guy's, like myself would prefer one in a custom build as a LR or F-class rifle.

Yes, it will work.

Triggers, bolts, and stocks will interchange.

The one thing about the trigger is the safety. The action will have to be notched on the rear tang. Not a big deal, about 5 minutes with a dremel.

Recently built one for a customer. 6.5X284, Pendleton gunstock, Jewell trigger, Benchmark Sendero taper barrel in a 8 twist. Its a real shooter. I milled the reciever for the 700 trigger assy.

Shame on you Blagg. Using a mill when a Dremel will do.
