Here are the pics of the new stainless steel Tooley action that several requested. This is one is a short action repeater 1.350 diameter with Rem footprint.
Comes in long or short, any bolt face, right or left port, single shot or repeater. Built by Stiller to Tooley specs. In single shot version it is a tight as the BAT. Receiver is set up for trued heavy pinned lug which Dave can provide.
Includes side bolt release as you can see.
Bolt is fluted, lapped, then melonite coated (surface hardened) to minimize wear on bolt face and smoothness. Bolt has smaller fiiring pin hole, smaller tip on a tricked out firing pin. Bolt handle is also threaded for aftermarket knobs but comes with a small tactical. This is larger knob I put on before I gave it to the the gunsmith.
He has them in stock for $825 and $30 for the pinned lug any bolt.
You cannot beat that deal and no way to rework a 700 for less money and never end up with near the quality.
Mine is being built as a 6.5x47 tactical with Krieger light palma in 8.7 twist, Tooley action, Stocky Hart LR stock, Wyatts detachable mag by Jeff Walker at Walker Custom Rifles here in Culpepper Va. He has built several rifles for guys here at this site.
