    Borden Timberline is top notch and reasonably priced for as good as it is. Stiller Predator is very good and probably the best priced especially if you get in on the group buy over on Sniperhide. Defiance Machine builds top notch actions . The Surgeon RLR is also very good and reasonably priced. IMO the Borden is the best of the bunch when you combine the quality for the price.

    After having it side by side with a few of the actions mentioned, Pierce is worth a hard look.

    Customs are ready to go. Most smiths will check them over to make sure but that is what you are paying for.

    A Borden action will be better than a blueprinted Remmy, probably for less total money.
