    Buggered Remington 700 (or just the action)

    I've been toying with the idea of building a .308 bush gun on a Remington 700 action, I've done things a bit backwards and bought a barrel first, now looking for an action, or rifle with worn out barrel, anything considered if cheap enough (yes, i'd even consider a left-handed one if the price was right!)
    Cheers, Tom

    Would a 783 action work?

    I've googled it before but could work it out, I know the 783 is more like the 700 than that POS model 770 was

    It doesn't have a trigger but minus that it's complete. Also comes with the standard Remington synthetic ADL stock. If you ring fiordland frontier supplies and ask for the Owner(Russel) for more info.

    Just buy this http://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co.n...n-700-a-32160/ by the time you fluff around with gunsmiths etc this would have been cheaper.
