    I got my dirty little fingers on a nice action have not told my wife yet$150.00 its in need of some work starting with a good soda blast and some wet polishing the bolt will have a new handle real soon.the barrel was a smaller one the origenal stock was burned from a house fire.
    I am planing to purchase a new barrel..what make should I start with..I have the tools, the barrel has been removed.
    Its a Remington 700..not to bad actualy its in prety good shape.
    I am building a tactical rifle for 500 yards.

    Firearms that have been in a house fire are always questionable. It's no bargin if it fails. Safety first, always!

    No damage to the reciever grease never got hot the bluing is still just fine. trigger is fine it passed all inspections. Back of the stock was exposed to fire riflr was horisonal in the ceiling. over top of heating ducts the case was burned half way by the time fire trucks came.
