This gets my vote. I love my 6.5 PRC from last years build. If something similar to this was offered I would be in like Flynn. Anything ultralight and short action. I walk a bunch and this would be a great option.

We have quite a few Grayboes left in inventory from the last generation of Ranger/Mavericks. Could probably put together a smoking deal on customer supplied 700 action builds after this year's TBH special closes out. Could probably even knock them out while we are waiting on delivery of the 2020 parts. We pretty much have everything on hand already. Hmmmmm............
Still very interested in the possibility of getting a couple 700 actions worked up.

So... I'm all about the 2020 TBH/APR group build, and I think it may be the best yet, but I also haven't forgotten about this stellar idea and I do have my new stainless 700 short action in hand as I patiently wait to see what evolves with this.

I know this is always a possibility, but I believe we may get a little break on the price by doing this as a group. I'm sure there are at least a few guys that would like to have an old 700 action worked up in addition to this years lightweight carbon build.

I'm all for "helping" Robert get rid of his old stock of Grayboes to turn my old dust collector rifles into something I'd tote to the woods again.

Robert, I’ve got a bottle of Crown, a TIG welder and some needle nose vise-grips if you want to start resetting bolt handles...oh wait, Dan at accu-TIG is still a 2 day turn...never mind Custom actions are too cheap to not use. By the time you make one over ALL the way you’ll have sunk a pretty penny (including bolt body and firing pin and spring upgrade) plus timing the handle unless you go with a one piece bolt Then you’ll need to machine the raceways as well. I don’t mind giving a Remington a makeover (or at least as much as you can give one) but, IMHOP, it’s still a Remington action. If it doesn’t hold sentimental value, leave it alone and buy a custom action if at all possible. Do you’ve to do all that? No, but if I guess it all depends on how close you want a Remington to be to a custom action.

My TIG skills aren't up to that even without the Crown! Haha.
