    Suggestions please for a custom .22,bottom feed) rim fire action that actually looks as good as it shoots.

    I'm building a custom thumbhole sporter .22 rim fire bolt REPEATER and want something other than a factory barreled action if at all possible. ,Yes, I release its going to be VERY hard to beat an off-the-shelf Anschutz.)

    I've looked at the Hall MFG offering and whilst the spec reads well it has all the charm of a Land-Rover fender!:rolleyes: The Stolle Swindlehurst looks OK but is a top-loading single shot which is no good.

    Guess I should have bought one of those fine Dakota,?) actions from Brownell's before they all disappeared some years ago.:cry:

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Klench,

    Don't be dismayed. Halls can look very nice. Allan just needs a better photographer. Here's one of his 'B' centerfire actions in high-polish, made originally for Dwight Scott.

    And we've always said "handsome is as handsome does". You can't buy a better rimfire action. The Hall is what we've chosen for a new 17 HM2 rimfire project gun that, hopefully, will be ready by the end of summer.

    What you say, rimfire on 6mmBR.com? Well, there will be a few more surprises in the months to come. Precision will still be the watchword but we'll be exploring some new territory both big and small.

    Hear what you say to a point. I've thought hard about finding a Gunsmith who has the wherewithal to undertake faceting/contouring of the unit as part of the build but remain unclear if this is at all realistic. ,Any suggestions?)

    Getting a rimfire barrel of the right contour to blend seamlessly with outside of the massive front section of the action looks tricky too.

    Clearly I like the fact that a Jewell trigger unit can be used!


    Thanks and good luck with the .17 project. Nothing wrong with "small" stuff as I'm sure Tod Kindler would confirm!

    Now, where to source a stainless floorplate assembly, of rimfire,Hall MFG) proportions, for concealing a five-shot magazine beneath? Are you listening Sunny Hills?!:p

    Questions, questions!

    Klenchblaize,

    This may be too late, but have you taled to Cooper Arms? I have their Model 58 action in 22LR, and I shoot .1 groups all day with match grade ammo.

    Good luck,
    Kory
