    I put a barrel on a new Predator action yesterday. These actions are as fine as any I've ever seen. Final machining and finish are superb. You get everything that you would get with a "blueprinted" Rem 700 plus a Sako type extractor and a pinned lug. Hard to beat for the money.

    hi m8

    could you keep me informed of the progress of this action
    as i am thinking of importing them to the UK instead of blue printing.
    as with the cost of buying the donor action,and then blue printing it,well you know the score.

    how long was the delivery time?????
    and did they deliver on the time quoted. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    BuffaloBob, caliber is 17 Javelina AI.

    Col48, I'm not sure how long it took to get the action. The customer sent Stiller a copy of my FFL and Stiller shipped it to me. I will definitly keep you posted on the actions progress. I'm working on a cooper for the same customer. I wish I had as good a report to make on it

    Does it have a three peice bolt like the 700? How is the bolt handle attatched to the bolt body? So it has the Sako type extractor.......nice! I'm looking at one but just "started" my search. I wonder if you could put a bolt shroud safty on one like you can the 700? Are the parts such as the fireing pin and spring interchangable with the 700? Wow......guess I had better call Stiller and ask all these questions myself! FNMauser

    ye no probes m8
    shoot me your email and when i order my first few,i will stick you one on the shipment,if i can get them over at the right price.
    i will get you a firm price (and a fair price)but it might take a couple of weeks to sort out the paperwork,so until i get this in place i am not contacting them,as i don't want to mess them about.
    hear is my email add if you want to shoot me yours so i can get in touch when things get rolling

    thanks

    I made a huge mistake: ordered one and one of the Predators, first runs. Went to Sniper Hide to alert the troops about the great quality. Got sondly accused of trying to sneak in a un paid commercial!! Lots of covering fire laid down and no retreating here. Since I have side by side comparisons of Remmy with all the treatments, Go Predator!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif Overbore

    hi m8
    have you got one of the predators up and running.
    if so could you find the time to post what you think of them.
    or if not what do you think of the quality,and are they a better way to go than a blue print job
    thanks

    I have single shot up and running. The bolt came with the Remington type extarctor and a welded bolt handle. The bolt and handle are hard chromed and have the Rem bolt shroud. It wears a 29 inch hart 8 twist barrel chambered in a 243PMS. It set in a Shehane baby tracker stock and a Burns trigger. It is a very smooth and tight fitting bolt, I believe with about .002 clearance. So far with 70 3 shot targets shot it has averaged in the low 6’s with 107 Sierra and and 95 gr Bergers. I have had problems finding the correct powder for the case size and have decided on RL 19 which has shrunk the groups with 107 to the low .2’s and high .1’s. Yes. It is a better action than a blueprinted action well ever be at that price.
