    I have the opportunity to purchase a Champlin Arms bolt action receiver. Problem is, I know nothing about them. I do know they are pretty valuable, but when I called the company they said they were made in the 60-70's, only a few were made, they use a proprietary Canjar trigger and the stock would have to be a custom inlet job. I want to build a 338 Lapua, and came upon this action. If I can get it for a reasonable price, is it worth the extra hassle?

    I found this info on the rifle action https://books.google.com/books?id=t...onepage&q=stock for a champlin action&f=false

    A classic collectable. Better check the cost to stock that,,,,, it'll probably change your mind. Probably better to obtain an action already set-up for the Lapua.
