    Well, I believe that Montana Rifle Co. manufactures a Model 70 type action for commercial sale. Look them up online.

    Buy a used rifle, part it out, and sell everything but the action. That's how I had 2 custom built rifles built.

    I don`t believe Winchester (FN) sells just actions. I`d grab a used beater m70 off the rack at my local shop If I was after a action for a new project. It will likely be as cheap or cheaper in the long run.

    "...don't believe Winchester (FN) sells just actions..." Don't think any of the assorted Winchester Arms companies did either. Most builders buy a rifle just for the action. Sometimes brand new rifles.

    Great action to start a rifle with.

    What caliber? www.cdnnsports.com has FN short actions for the WSM cartridges for around $350. These are Winchester actions built before the Winchester factory closed that have been re-badged for FN. You will have to download the catalog to view their firearms. Only the acessories will show up on the website.
