They were. Other than primary extraction issues, those were the best 700 actions made. A gunsmith buddy of mine use to post videos almost daily of RR receivers in the lathe with .0003 or less runout on the lug recesses and action face. They were as true as most customs. They need primary extraction issues fixed and the timing is off on them. I’m not an action smith so not sure what needs fixed with the timing. The primary extraction is just as simple as soldering/welding the bolt on in the right location.I could be wrong, but I thought the RR receiver was supposed to be CNC built.
We can all hope they come to our state, but I'd rather see Rapid than NY any day.Better yet, move to the last truly free state in the union, South Dakota! We love our firearm, ammunition and accessory manufacturers here. They could move to Rapid City, just down the road from the Custom Shop.
I want one of those switch barrel guns so bad my trigger finger is on . In 6.5 prc,338Norma magnum and in 30/378 weatherby and when they come out with something new I'll get it too,cause it's a switch barrel and that means you don't need a scope for every barrel or mounts. And it becomes familiar whatever barrel you have on it. Barrett won because they are better!Actually they weren’t which is why the MSR project was cancelled and the replacement PSR contract ended with Barrett winning the contract Remington originally had.
Actually the average drop at the Comb is 1.5 to 1.7 to position the eye in line with the sites/scope. The actual average drop at the heel is 2.25 to 3 ". This is common for dangerous game rifles with tremendous amounts of recoil allowing some of the recoil energy to be directed upwards.Way Too much drop in the stock. They stocked it like an 870.
