    They were still being made into the 90's and early 2000's until Ray Vin came out with his version made from nylon wich never seized up from corrosion and had a little water reservoir in the bottom. Now Highpower rifle is pretty much all scopes but...

    Ruger does not sell stripped actions for any of their guns. Only option is to buy used and strip down, or buy a savage action, pre fit barrel, and a chassis system.

    Some of your better custom smiths “time” the bolts on rem 700 type actions to what they call cock on close, but it’s really nice. They are really timing the action to slightly pull the sear back when you close the bolt, trying to optimize firing pin...
