    I can't look up online, but can someone tell me if Remington will sell only the action?

    Maybe, sorta, sometimes,,,,,,,, occasionally Midway or Brownells will have a few of them but it's not often and they don't last long. Unless things have changed they are not a regular stock item, it's more like when Remington has a few available. I have gotten new one's twice in ten years, when I see them advertised it's usually too late.

    9 out of 10 times it's cheaper to buy the gun from a discount store and part out the pieces.

    Last time I saw the action for sale on midway it was more expensive than the gun :pop:

    I figured I'd end up having to do the "piece out" of an existing rig, but figured If I could get a brand new action for what I thought was the right money I'd go that route.

    Either that or I just buy a new CZ action. Something about a square bridge mauser that I like.

    What's the plan for it?

    For normal target shooting, a trigger and stockwork on the exisiting stock will be all that's needed for a lot of people.

    Or are you going to make it all ghetto :D

    No, not gonna get all crazy with it. :D I can't afford one of those nice "McSwirly" stocks.

    But just trying to work out in my mind what I want to do for a custom build.
