So when the order was finalized last week on the 22nd, they said timeline is around 4 months for the bare action, add 3-4 weeks if I wanted it nitrided. I'm getting it bare, as we are having the whole rifle cerakoted in whatever color she wants.How long for that ANti action...thinking of ordering one myself...
When I talked to Defiance and gave them the cartridge specs for the Sherman Max in a long action (as opposed to the proprietary medium xm action), they said the best route to run it as a staggerfeed bdl, would be to go with the win mag feed lips, as opposed to the RUM type feed lips.
I went with the long action in case my wife ever decided she wanted to go with a larger chambering, like the 30 Sherman Mag, it would be easy to convert. Until then, I'll just put in a small plastic spacer at the rear of the mag box, around .4"-.5" thick depending on what OAL ends up being, should be easy to shape it, then drill a couple small holes in the mag box and screw it in place.
