    Thinking about buying one of these actions from cdnn (sp. ?) and building up a rifle over time. The goal would be a general-purpose, target, some stand hunting, and just nice to have a high-quality accurate tough piece of hardware. Any thoughts? Thanks.cwd

    I bought one of the FN rifles from cdnn. I don't recall the exact model number but mine is the 20" heavy barrel with CRF in 308. Mine was $700 and shoots around 1/2" at 100. Not crazy about the Hogue stock.

    Personally, I like the FN SPR.

    Great rifles, my SPR was one of the best bolt guns I ever bought. Really cant say enough good things about the rifle.

    Thanks for the observations-looks like a go as soon as my IRS refund comes in-start with the action and work up-I have enough firearms to do everything else I want (well, maybe I need a Browning B92!) so I can take my time as disposable income comes up and put it together exactly like I want it. Anybody got any advice or stories or suggestions therein, let me know.cwd

    I have had 3 rifles custom built. My advice is: If you are not in a hurry and want to save some $$$, pick up the parts you want to use in your build over time when the price is right and send them to your smith along with your action. Use a quality barrel and have your smith true the action prior to installation. Select a quality stock such as McMillan, and have your smith pillar bed it. And finally, select a reputable gunsmith such as George Gardner, Terry Cross, etc.
