    I am about to order a Stiller Predator action for my rifle build. I am going to get the predator SS action, but it is a bead blasted action. I am wondering if someone has some pictures of a beaded action that has been buffed out. I am wanting to make sure my action will match my SS barrel. I asked my gunsmith and he said it shouldn't be a problem. I would like to see some pictures if anybody has some. also looking for ideas of what to do with the bolt, just wanting something a little different. thanks for all your help as a build my first custom rifle

    Might as well go into the field with a "disco" mirror ball on your shoulder as have a fully polished SST barrel and action.

    THats why I have and most have them bead blasted to kill the shine.

    Is there a store that has predator actions in stock? the wait time from stiller is 2-3 months, I can wait that if needed, but if there is someone who has them on the shelf, I would love to get this build started
