    Is it possilbe to buy just a new remington model 700 action to build a rifle on? Where can you get one and how much do they cost? Is this the cheapest way to get a new model 700 action or is it cheaper to just buy a model 700 ADL synthetic for 400 bucks and use the action out of it? Thanks.

    A new 700 is $400 (retail) from Brownells. That is the nice blued model, not the matte finish found on the ADL at X-Mart.

    Jon,
    I got the one I built the 30-338 Lapua on at Wally World for $400, matte yep. I like the matte finishe better tho, so...

    Jay,
    Does the action Brownells have come with mag box, spring and follower, or that awesome plastic trigger guard? [​IMG]
