What custom receiver for Edge?

I am planning on building an Edge soon and have started to gather parts. I don't have a receiver to build on and I think I might go with a custom. What custom receivers would work for this build? I want it to be a 700 footprint, repeater, with extended mag box. I don't need bells and whistles, just something usable for a hunting/ rock busting application. Thanks for your input, Cinch

Nesika Bay Precision is back online again. They've just received a large inventory of materials. 60 day lead time on delivery.

Nesika - Manufacturer of World Class Bolt Actions and Rifles - Offical Site

Good luck.

Depending on your price range that you are looking in Stiller Tac 300 is a really good action that runs a bit less $ than the nesika

The TAC 300 is a good value for the money.

I have read good things about the Surgeon Actions. From their site, you can get one with all of the 'smith work done, including the M16 style extractor. They do use a 700 firing assembly which may or may not be some guys cup of tea.

Man, there's some nice looking stuff out there. It's hard to pick one without really handling one.

Maybe Shawn will weigh in here on why he chooses to true-up the Rem actions versus using one of the 'hybrid' versions that are based off of the 700 but are machined with better materials with tighter tolerances. I have been kicking around having something like this done too on an Edge.
