    For those who don't know me, I have a bit of good news my old friend Dan's family own a pawn shop
    this is where I get some damned great deals on my Springfields.
    I got in contact with and asked if I could come in and clean up the rifles and help out around the shop, all I ask in return is some rifles to add to my Safe..well his old man said I have no problem with the deal, there are a sh!t pile of Springfields in the back and a good hundred more that need to be cleaned, hell he can walk around and clean the glass cases and make the stuff look better.
    I need the parking lot sweped vaccume run (etc)..

    there are a bunch of Remingtons (MAGNUMS) in cheap black plastic stocks that I know I can pick up cheap.
    if I were to build a .300short mag what reciever would work best.
    HELL guys! there are about 10 in 7MAG alone and none are being sold or ever got sold in over 5 years.
    NO BULL S#IT KC.
    I am gonna get another 7MAG I fell in love with the last one I sent out to SD.

    If you want to build one on a long action a 7mm mag or 300 would work. Then you could seat your bullets on out. Wish I could run up on a 7mag gun like that for a donor.

    Hey Keith,

    How cheap are any of those to buy? Might be worth a drive over to that shop. :D
    Only 2 hours away.

    I would sell off some of that stuff and treat yourself to a nice custom action. Bat, Defiance or Stiller come to mind as the foundation for a really nice rifle.
