I believe they only sell barreled actions through Legacy Sports.

That be the importer, there are distributors.

You are correct. I used to see the barreled actions for sale through Jerry's Sport Center, but they are a distributor I believe (FFL only).

I had all mine ordered from Ron Shirk's but it's been a few years and I don't know if they still carry them or not.

Scott,

I tried them a year ago on your recommendation and I was told they don't carry barreled actions anymore via phone call.

They might now?

Actually, I told them that you had recommended them and they immediately hung up on me...

They'd have done more to you if it had been McMillan....

I'm thinking big box store (aka. Wal-mart) Weatherby Vanguard and sell the extras would have to be about the cheapest. Of course that is assuming they still carry them.

Jerry's Sports Center distributes barreled actions. But they are almost expensive as the full rifle.

The Academy outlets in my area sell the Howa youth
combo in 243 and 708. Havent checked the prices on them,
but Im sure they arent very expensive. Every now and
then Walmart sells Vanguards for buy one regular price,
buy a second rifle for half price.

I would imagine you'll not do better than that...

I bought a barreled action in .204 for a donor about 14 months ago for 323$ and I looked all over...
