    I'm looking for a 260 Remington in a heavy barrel. I know remington made it in the VLS for a limited time. Another 260 heavy barrel in the 700 action will do as long as it's < $1000. I'm also looking for a a 243 or 308 rem 700 action for a donor action < $350, being I can get a new rifle for around $400. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Thanks.

    shotgun red,

    Are you looking for a blued or stainless short action? Do you want a stripped action, trigger, ADL or BDL trigger guard, etc.? What's the zip of your FFL dealer (for shipping quote)?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Whoops, I left alot of things out. For the donor action I'm looking for a complete BDL or SPS action (floor plate, trigger guard, trigger, and safety). Also, I prefer blued with a jeweled bolt, but if not jeweled or blued I will entertain offers.

    Let me see what I currently have and I'll get back to you. Do you want a prestine setup, or are you going to refinish the completed rifle? In other words, are blue wear and minor scratches acceptable if it gets you a lower price?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    A little wear is fine, but I'm looking for something to touch up rather than re-blue.

    SR,

    Sorry for the delayed response. I'm working a couple of deals right now and will give the potential buyers another day or two to make their minds up. I have a matte finish and a gloss finish action involved in these deals so their is a good chance that one of them will be available. I'll let you know.
