Best of luck. We would like to see/hear your thoughts on it once you receive it.


There are way more 1/2" guns then there are 1/2" shooters.

I received my tracking information today as well. I should have the action by the first part of next week, allowing for crappy Alaska shipping.

I am holding tight for now but was seriously tempted by the stainless units at Bud's. Time to check in with PT&G again.

I CC'd one of their customer service reps and they gave me a partial refund I think only holding $150 as a deposit so maybe they actually read my rants and it is pretty decent of them to do this.

The machine work on mine is visually very good. It came with the one piece fluted bolt, the small diameter firing pin and a M16 extractor. It also has a new crappy Remington trigger. The bluing job was very nice.

Butch, Is your picture reversed? That looks like a righty.

Butch that is encouraging. I like the straight bolt and conservative knob. It torques me when some companies charge extra for a classic handle when you don't care for the four on the floor shifter tactickool look.

Did they chase the threads and other than hardware will it need any more work? If you add up all the extras I think it is a great deal.

Somebody asked about the ones on special. I do understand the thread, just posting pics of what they should get either LH or RH.
On the receiver it appears that the front ring was straightened to the bore as well as the lug abuttments. Dave said they straighten the threads, but said the newer Remington 700s have pretty good machine work out of the box. As most of you know Remington does these with CNC now.

It is a hell of a deal as these are new receivers with a PT&G bolt.

Thanks. I think mine will be a lefty twin to yours with the same fluting. Can't wait to get into the Bourdan stock and screw on the 1/8 Krieger barrel in 6mmAI.

Whoo hoooty got my booty. PT&G just called and it's out the door as soon as they get the FFL so seven weeks ain't too bad. Especially when they told me 18 weeks.

Under promise and over deliver they have my business for sure.

I'd buy the stainless action from Bud's and get it in 4 days. Plus I don't like sako extractor cuts in bolts.

I ordered one on 6/15 and my packing slip was dated 7/21. It is a standard bolt face with a fluted bolt.

Now they are saying the end of the month. My guess is they lost my order and now are finally building it.

4 day turn for stainless steel new Remington 700 action from Bud's if you change your mind. Mine's waiting for trip to smith and bartlein barrel. Had Kampfeld put new bolt knob on and that will be only alteration done to it.

I bought one off GB a couple weeks back when Bud's was jacking around with prices. Dropped the MO in the mail one Saturday. Picked up the receiver at my FFL the next Saturday. Will send it off for a bolt knob when I make up my mind what I want to build on a short action.

Fun to see this back at the top. I finally got my follower from them. 134 days from order to delivery. 3 times they told me it was out for anodizing. when I put it in the gun and cycled 1 magazine full through it to check function, it had a big old brass scratch through the red anodizing. mad
