I saw this over on gunbroker.com:

Remington/Anschutz silhouette rifle, .308 caliber. This rifle consists of a sleeved Remington 700 short action, Anschutz 2-stage trigger, Anschutz 1808 stock with adjustable cheek piece, and Hart stainless barrel. The barrel measures 23" long by 0.750 at the muzzle, and has only approximately 250 rounds through it. The rifle as shown weighs 8# 9 oz. It was smithed by a former Olympic shooter as his personal silhouette rifle.

Anyone familiar with this kind of conversion?

And what the heck is a 'sleeved action'?

It appears to be just a custom built rifle. A Remington action with an Anschütz trigger. Anschütz does sell its trigger assembly serperately for such purposes. (At least in their official catalog.) The stock looks very close to Anschütz's 54:18 MS thumbhole stock.
