    Hey guys just wanted share my homemade action with you. For the last year or so I have been kicking around the idea of machining my own action from scratch. So as I could find some free time at the shop or I could sneak some time in I created my Juggernaught.

    Here some are quick specs
    416SS reciver, 4140 bolt EDM bore and lug race way
    one piece bolt (well handle screws in) so it kind of has a rear lug
    built in recoil lug
    the top of the action has a ridge that will add stiffness .

    I am pretty happy overall with everything, there are a few things I would change if I were to do another, all cosmetic.

    I will be shipping it out to Kirby this week, to have him build me 338 Allen Mag. It should be a monster!!!!!

    I hope these pics post

    very nice, vintec.
    the bolt release looks low on the side of the receiver. can you post a pic of the left side with the receiver in the stock?
    you must be pretty talented to make your on action, congrats.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    Trueblue, the bolt stop is low I didnt leave enough materail on the tang area to postion it in the center of the bore axis. As it is positioned now the top of the bolt stop is on the center line, it is completly engaging the lug. I did have to modify the stock for clearance. This is the only pic I have of the side. Its already packed up ready to ship. I dosent look that good or bad maybe Kirby can work some magic on the stock and touch the area up.

    SWEET!

    The action alone should scare the game to death, at least out to 600m !!!!

    Nice job. But I gotta tell ya, I AM JEALOUS of your skills.

    Later....

    I was thinking that 500m would be the max effective scare range, LOL.

    I would guees that even a good wiff from the big 338 AM would pull off enough hair to make the game die from hypothermia.

    Glad that you guys like it. I cant wait to get it back from Kirby and see what it will do.
