    If you were to design your own "ideal" LR action, would you opt for front (on the bolt face) or rear (near the bolt handle) locking lugs?

    What are the Pro's and cons of each?

    JE Custom,

    Your arguments add up and i see the point of keeping the locking action right up there.

    Thanks for clarifying.
