Rifle actions?
Im looking at building a custom rifle, the only problem I am having is finding just the action of a rifle. I would prefer a remington or winchester action. It MUST be a magnum length action (300 wm, 7mm rm). If anyone knows of any websites that sell actions, please let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Check out the CZ and Dakota actions at Brownells. You can also check with Mitchells Mausers to see if they have any good Mauser actions in stock...........................

I believe the 7mm RM fits nicely in a long action. The 300 WM takes a Magnum length action.

There are a ton of semi custom and full blown custom action makers out there. How much are you looking to spend?

Your other option is hit the gun shows and look for a cast off rifle that has a good action and buy it just for that. Have the owner take the scope and sling and anything else he wants off and just make a deal on the rifle knowing you are only buying the action.

That is how I got my pre-'64 Winchester for my first build.

The CMP has M1917 stripped barreled receivers for $150.

The best way to get rifle actions are to get the whole rifle at a bargain price and strip it down. Tip-what I do is look for is a rifle (brand/model action that I want) that looks like it's been drug behind a truck & rusted. You're going to strip it/refinish for the action anyway and it's darn hard to hurt the action-even though the barrel may be rusted and the stock all messed up. In that way I've been able to obtain actions for 100-200$. Cruise the local pawn shops for bargains.
