    I just saw something from Brownell's about being able to buy new Rem 700 actions, $400 I think.

    I would like the forum's opinion on this approach also.

    plus bottom metal. Brownells is setting up the biggest rip off going.
    www.mikesshooting.com

    sells rem adl actoins at a reasonable price. Best thing to do is go to a gun show and pic one up used

    I have 6 actions or rifles for sale that could be torn down.
    1-short 223 bolt face BDL $350.00
    1-222 ADL rifle $325.00
    1-short 223 Stainless BDL $400.00
    1-243 ADL ugly camo(good Action) $300.00
    1-long ADL standard(no spring/follower $275.00
    1-721 reciever w/matte bolt(270)no other parts $175.00

    All bolts are clean. Long action has some scuffs from disassembly but can be easily cleaned up and refinished but has no spring/follower or recoil lug. Check my feedback on GB or Auction Arms. email for more details dmmartin@sdplains.com

    Thanks.

    Wal-Mart Has Rem 700's New (ADL Synt) 270's, 308's 30-06's, etc, for $375.00. Use the Action, throw the rest of the stuff away and keep the barrel behind your seat for beating people up, and you've got a deal.

    DWM, Find somebody who's a dealer through Brownells and have them get it for ya. They can make a buck and you get a better deal. You have to have someone get it for you anyhow, (unless your an FF Dealer with FFL).

    As for "Less the bottom metal" being a problem, you can get that stuff off Ebay for near free. That's no big loss. And, you only need it for a repeater, a hunk of plastic will do for a follower if you're making a single shot out of it.
