Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

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.

Here is Dave Tooleys contact info email is tooleyrifles@carolina.rr.com phone is (704) 864-7525

Re: Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

wow good looking action... doesn't break the bank either. I like it.

Jeff Walker is a great guy (and gunsmith), the rifle he built me must have some voodoo magic in it, the bullets out of it are F-class X-ring-seeking!!

Re: Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

Looks just like Stillers Predator or Tac series actions. I know Stillers made it but what's so special about this one?

Never said it was "special", did I?

However, it is a lot better, smoother, faster and cheaper, with more resale than a reworked Remington without any question, isn't it!

I am sure that Leonard Baity's is similar and probably built by Stiller too. Either way good options for an "in stock" action that is ready to go with no additional work.

However, according to Dave it is built to his specs which are a little tighter tolerances than the standard Predator which is .004-.006.

Re: Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

Thanks BH. I knew some other guys were having Stillers make actions with their name on it and they're pretty much a carbon copy of a Predator ot Tac series. When you said it was to Dave's specs I wondered if there was anything special compared to the others. I'm sure it will be a shooter either way !!
