Re: Tooley Orion action

I bought an Orion from Dave Last year to build a rifle for a customer.

Yes, it is built by Stiller for Dave. To Daves specs.

My customer wanted a dual port action.

Jerry and Curtis at Stiller Precision will not make a single off.

Dave Tooly was nice enough to share with me one of his actions.

It made a fine rifle for my customer and did not break the bank.

I have almost quit truing Remington actions beacuse I can get a Stiller Predator, Kelbly Atlas, Pierce, Borden for about the same cost as truing a Remington.

Jerry is sure getting his monies worth from the Predator Programming.

Yes Jerry will do a 1 off --- not a problem you just do not know how to ask...

All it takes is money---figure 100k will do it on a Predator!!

A SS 98 will be a whole lot more than that. I have begged him for years to do a 98 in CM or SS and he will not.

Put a Wyatts extended mag box on it. It is the mag box that limits you, not the action.

Re: Tooley Orion action pics as requested.

I just got my new build back a couple of weeks ago. I used the Tooley Orion action recommended by Bountyhunter. My smith and I both really liked the Tooley action, and he's a Benchrest guy. I think, for the money and availability, the Tooley will be hard to beat. I'm very satisfied with mine.
