I'm seeing similar threads in this section, so I hope this question is in the right section. If not... give me some time and I'll get everything figured out. Anyways, I'm currently in the preliminary research phase of building a completely custom, 100% U.S. made and manufactured, multipurpose, bolt gun. My goal is to build a rifle (dare I use the term?) “tactical” in nature that is not only a very capable long range target gun, but also a powerful multi-game hunting rifle. As stated above, I am after long range accuracy; however, reliability is of the utmost importance to me. I need a rifle that will feed and eject every time that I ask it to; one that is able to stand up to prolonged and rugged field use; and finally, one that will stand the test of time and eventually become an heirloom. Because of all of these requirements I have been leaning towards a Model 70 type action; however, this is where I start to run into issues. Because I am trying to build a fully custom tactical rifle, I am having a hard time finding the right action. I have searched and searched, but for the most part I find manufacturers that base their action on the Remington 700. I won’t have it. Essentially I’m not dead set on the Model 70 action, but rather the options that the 70 offers. Controlled feeding, Mauser style extractor, variable ejection, machined, and its three position safety are all very high on my list. So all of that being said, here’s my question: Does anyone out there know of any custom made and manufactured actions based on the Model 70? Side note: I have been very seriously looking into Montana Rifle Company, but have read quite a bit of negative reviews and feedback… I also recently discovered that their actions are cast and not machined. Any and all help/comments are very much appreciated.
