hello, I am looking for some suggestions for a semi auto project that will be a tactical weapon when finished. I need so advice on who makes good semi auto 30-06 actions new or old that i could find.

I want around 1 MOA, rock solid performance, and external magazine with atleast 10rnd capacity.

I will re-barrel and put a synthetic stock on after a little while.

This will be a twin to a 30-06 bolt action i am building also in 30-06 (I love the caliber and will not change for a while, maybe I will do a bolt/semi auto twin build in .308 latter but that seems like an all to easy thing these days!)

A Garand will not do B/C the internal magazine and the BAR's that i have seen have a removable internal magazine. Much thanks for your input! Wes

  • I am thinking to find an older BAR in need of some care and have it blueprinted and a custom barrel. Mate the barrel and new action, custom synthetic stock and bobs your uncle that might work but it will be alot of cash!!

    What do you think?

  • I have checked the remington 7400 out and I think it is a great hunting rifle, but I do not think it is sturdy enough to sustain fire in combat. I need something that will be dependible after 150 rnds continous fire. It looks like they have done some really nice stuff with the 7400. Wes

  • That is more of what i am after! Alittle on the large size and I think they go for about $4000. I wish I could find one cheaper! Wes

  • I've seen a conversion done to the Garand so that it will accept and use BAR magazines. Looks like some serious work involved, but would come closer to your requirements than the semi-auto hunting rifles. I wouldn't expect to find a BAR, in any condition, at a bargin price.

    Post count and I.Q. are two different things!

    where exactly are you going to see combat and whay the hell would you choose a caliber that NOBOY else will have ammo for?
    The 30-06 beats the 308 by what 150 fps , in a "combat" situation where a high rate of fire is needed the bad guy will never notice

    But if you just gotta have one Cobb make a AR style semi auto up to 338 Lapua
    Nope , I'm not "The" J.D. Jones of SSK , I made my screen name and never thought about it

  • I will not coment on the "see combat" question. I would like to have a o;der sort of tribute weapon and I have tons of respect for the 30-06 so that is where I am starting for my combat dedicated collection. I am well awear that the military does not use 30-06, anymore. COBB was bought buy Bushmaster and the multi-caliber weapon is no longer made. I will do a .308 project with a bolt action rifle and a semi or full auto rifle I just want to do the 30-06 first. Thanks for checking out the post and have fun with shooting! Wes
