Okay folks, so as promised, here is the website of one of the CONFIRMED
rifles that has been submitted to the military for evaluation for the .338 Lapua Sniper Replacement Platform ( I don't know what the official Military designation is, but you get the point ).
is submitting their very cool modular stock system, along with a custom made .338 Lapua on a Surgeon Custom Action
Now, if you are not familiar with either, that's okay, they are both kind of small in the market place that is SWAMPED with contenders. What you need to know is that both these companies take accuracy VERY
We got a Surgeon Action in the shop for a build on a custom Sniper Stick that was going to a shooter in North East, North Carolina. Had a "job" from a company in those parts, I can't remember the name though.
The Surgeon Action is a Remington 700 styled action that is very solid. It's a very nice piece of kit that comes all blueprinted and ready to build. I considered buying one myself for Mjolnir, my 7mm Mag project, but ended up with the Lawton instead.
McRees has brought something really cool to the table with their stock system. It's modular in three parts, so you no longer have to configure just ONE type of rifle. The stock is all aluminum, and the center part, where the action is bedded, stays the same, but you can change the foreends and the buttstocks to a couple of different variants, which is pretty cool in my opinion. Need a Benchrest Style System? Click, Click. Need a Tactical Field Gun? Click. Click. Very cool stuff.
In any event, this is one of the platforms that has been submitted for review by the folks willing to stroke the big checks. Thought you blokes might like to know what is being offered up for our boys in the Big SandBox....
