    I'm interested to about hear anyone's experience with Kirby's Raptor Receiver. I know Kirby is a highly recognized and respected gunsmith, which I'm not questioning, and I'm sure his reciever is a very high quality piece of gear. I'm planning a future build of a wildcat off of a 7 LRM or 300 Norma Mag. I'm also considering a Surgeon long action, but I just want to keep my potions open. Thanks for all info.

    Dittto to loving mine as well. Mine is in 338AX (338LMImp). In some ways it looks like a 700 Rem on steroids. It is as smooth an action as you will find anywhere, and that includes Tikka and Weatherby. It has a 3/4" dia. bolt with lugs amost twice as big as Rem. Lockup is very tight and extraction and ejection is both positive and easily done. This is a primo action and you cant go wrong with one.
