Here are some sneak peaks to my new Rem 783 PRS/Tactical rifle build I have been mentioning in other posts.
Factory barreled action... Very impressed with the features in the action and the barrel, in 243, seems to be shooting very well.
Boyds Pro Varmint stock inletted for CDI DBM. I have modified a Savage Axis DBM to fit... not that far off dimensionally which is not really a surprise
Rail has been installed into the forend so I can use the MPOD or Harris
I got rid of that horrid factory bolt knob and installed an EGW knob instead.... WAY nicer to use.
An EGW 1pc 20 MOA base will be on the rifle in time for spring shooting.
I am impressed by how well this action cycles and functions. It seems to be have been designed for AICS mags as there was no mods needed to the action except fitting the DBM to position the mag in the right place.
Eventually, prefit barrels will be available and costs will be similar to the Savage barrels. A great action, very usable trigger, aftermarket barrels (in time), stocks and chassis available. I hear other aftermarket manfs are looking at this action for parts and accessories.
I have been super keen on Savage actions as donors and still compete with them in F Class but this Rem 783 is far better for mag fed tactical builds.
