    Bolt heads are unique to this rifle... I have been working to secure some direction on availability of parts.

    Unfortunately, "Rem" can be a bit demanding when it comes to have a decision and more importantly, parts to offer.

    Will post as soon as I can get a firm info and/or parts inhand.

    The parts swap is similar to the Savage but Rem has tweaked some of the angles in a very positive manner.... and I feel their extractor shape is better. Time will tell if durability stays but so far, no issues.

    See the current Caliber review of this and other rifles.... I feel the current state of Rem 783 is indeed better then the generic Rem 700.

    And I just my rebate from Rem for the 783.... Fun, fun, fun.

    Had a chance to take apart a couple of Rem 783's last night and we have found that this action uses a version of the Savage prefit barrel.

    The options are now endless on what you are rebarrel this action into... AWESOME.

    OK, this is looking very promising.

    now, as for the barrels, what profile is the factory one? It doesn't look like a varmint profile barrel, but it doesn't look like a "lite" sporter one either. Will it hold up to repeated rapid firing and stay accurate? If not, do you have access to a reasonable cost varmint profile barrel and if so how much to buy and have you fit one on?

    and onto the stocks, Boyds shows a nice laminate thumbhole for it if I read their website correctly. Is this the case? I prefer those to the black one you have shown here. Just a personal preference thing. And will these other Boyds stocks take the bottom metal you are talking about?

    Great news, I will wait till they come up with a stock that fits the Mag without fiddling! Also, I know you haven't looked at the long action but wondering if they use the same barrels as the short actions, I Have the .308 short and also 7mm R.E.M. Mag and .300 win mag,. I would love to change one of those over to 9.3x62!
