I have never personally held one but I can't recall ever hearing anything bad about them. I almost purchased one before I got my 7500 Lawton.

Here is Jerry Stiller's website:

Its a far smarter rout to go than buying and building up a Rem 700 , it may still cost a wee bit more but the resale value is double.

As far as the quality , they are said to be great actions needing no work

Stiller Actions vs Remington

There is no comparison between a Stiller custom action and a Stock Remington 700. Jerry and Curtis produce as fine a action that can be produced by CNC machinery. I have held them in my hands and have built rifles on Jerrys actions.

Kelby, Stiller, Borden, and Surgeon all make high quality actions.

I have built 2 rifles on Stiller Predator actions. I was very impressed with the fit and finish, they were perfect. All machine work was crisp and clean. When I set back the chamber on one of them I put the action in the truing jig and dialed it in to .0003. When I measured the face of the action it was .0003, which means it was about as good as it gets. I did not single point re cut the threads but I did line up the cutter and chased the threads and they were also very true. Very nice actions.

My Smith is building a Warbird on a TAC 338 action wich is the Predator action with an oversized bolt handle and black. I have played with the action and it is well worth it. For the price of a 700 with all the bells and whistles done to it you can have one of these.

stiller is the top custom action builder that I can think of as far as quality and customer service. Remember, just because it is custom doesn't mean it is immune from needing a little tune-up work by a competent smith. Re-sale value is one of the BIG plus factors to them.
