Fastline, as much as i like the Remington M700 actions and rifles, i think the Savage route is the best due to what can be acheived without a gunsmith. this will cut your costs into building by quite a bit. looking forward to seeing your build when you get it completed. sounds very interesting.

Sign up on the Savage shooters forum and look up Jim Briggs at Northland Shooter's supply (He has a forum section dedicated to NSS). He usually has the Stevens 200 action for sale by itself. He also has take-off stocks, parts, barrels, etc. Probably your best bet.

There's DIY threads on changing the trigger spring/wire to a different diameter to reduce the pull weight on the stock trigger (Don't know if that applied to Stevens trigger or just the Accu-trigger).

If you're worried about chopping up your Remington, get a new bolt from PT&G. Make your Remington a switch bolt/barrel rifle.

Unbiased Barnard, BAT, Kelbly, Nesika Bay x2, Remington x3, Browning, Marsh, Ruger x2, Savage x3, UltraLight Arms, AR15 x3 owner. I like 'em all.
