Remington 700 action only?

You used to be able to buy just the Remington 700 action assembly only (receiver, bolt, safety, and trigger). Is that no longer possible?

new actions seem to be incredibly difficult to come by on their own. if you're looking for one for a custom build, it might be easier to just find an older used ADL on gunbroker or in a pawn shop or something and strip it down. i see loads of 'em going for the 350-400 range. a quick 40-50 for the stock and barrel each, and you're only 250-300 into an action. not too shabby.

The Remington Stripped Actions have become extremely hard to get. I normally just buy the cheapest 700 SPS and go from there.

Thanks Dan. When it comes to Remington 700 actions, are they all the same? (the action on the lowest end SPS is the same as the ones used for the 5R)

yeh basically they are the same style i think just different metals, the 5R is stainless action.

there are lots of nice actions out there for sell that offer LH configurations, its just a matter of looking.

I considered them, but they are REALLY pricey. A basic Surgeon bolt assembly will run you ~$1300. McMillian, the same. I'm willing to go $600-700 for the action-only. Frankly, I'm surprised more companies haven't jumped on this missing part of the market, since Remington stopped offering the action only. I see that Savage does...

You can get a precision bolt assembly with trigger group and detachable magazine for ~$500 MSRP. I don't know if they come in LH, though.

Are they're any companies I'm missing?

i'm not saying go w/ a surgeon or mcmillan....

i'm saying look at the M70s, the savages, the R700s, etc...

Phoenix machine makes a good action that can be had for around 600-700 bucks w/ loading on the left and extraction on the right.
