    I am looking for a Remington 700 long action non magnum for a build. I want it to be stainless, have all the work done to it and ready to go. I found 1 quite a while ago for around 700 but I have lost the info on it, now I am back tracking trying to figure out what company it was. It was an after market company but had great reviews. Turns out this is cheaper then buying a complete gun and letting my gunsmith cut it up to get what I want, as the action was already squared and trued and what not. Now that I am done hunting for the year, I can get on with my build!!!

    You can find brand new Rem700 actions here:

    Small 700 SA Receiver, Blued | Brownells

    If you want one that has already been 'blueprinted' then you will just have to have patience and watch the classifieds of the various forums for one to pop-up. So watch the classifieds here, snipershide.com and gunbroker.com

    yeah, I looked at them from brownells, but those are just factory actions that will need all the work done to them. Well, if anyone has one for sale, please let me know

    I think your missing the point, if you want all that just buy a custom action, resale will be higher and cost is the same.

    Stillers Precision Firearms

    Same price as working a 700 over and as mentioned before it will be worth much more later either as a rifle or seperate action.

    Sorry, I don't think I was clear in my statement, I was asking if someone already had a custom action for sale, I do not want a stock action.
