    can a contender action sold as a rifle be used as a pistol legally?

    so along the same line of thinking i have always thought a 700 action could not be used as a pistol legally ? if it can please tell me how

    the reason i ask you guys have got me really interested in building a s.p. and i cant find a xp-100 or striker action that is not way over priced

    Thank you thank you I will be here all week!:D

    Thank you for the Welcome xphunter. I'm glad to be here, even though my long range is only 100 yards, I'm learning alot and thinking about a long range handgun in the future. I don't think it's to late for me to learn a new trick.lol
