    Yes. I have always bedded the sides of recoil lugs to help this. Even bedded in a way to try and control twist, glue ins help.

    I am guessing I am somewhat naive about this. What are the various options for this action? 2 lug, or 3 lug bolt? Right port, right eject? Solid bottom (no drop port)? Extended tenon? No ejector in bolt? Use for any single shot application (ie: Palma)?

    Sorry for cluttering things up, but it does look great, as well as intriguing.

    My buddy just got a build done with a Neuvo and Scoville done by Chris and these actions are impressive, pictures simply do not do them justice, and the bolts are massive. Just beautiful fit and finish. Chris and Dwight did a hell of a job here.

    This is a 2 lug (Horizontal when closed), many bolt and port options, standard tenon (extra threads dont support long barrels as you may have read) action. LR BR, f-open, palma, anything you want.

    I think the black coating is Nitride/Melonite coating.
    Melonite coatings don't machine very well, harder then carbide.
    May have to live with the way they are configured from the manufacturer.

    I want one without the drop port, with a long right port and 20 MOA rail, for F-class.
    Put me on the wait list.

    Thanks Alex for raising the bar

    But how do you retract a comment made a few weeks ago," I don't need any more guns"?

    I have never had an issue cutting through nitride with carbide.

    You are holding serial #1. Is it yours?

    Also wee it has some kind of finish. Is the action stainless or carbon? If stainless, why the finish?

    My Bix and Andy frequently does not release. I have played and played with little luck. Could this new action be used with a Jewel?

    If your Bix doesn't release, it's the trigger hanger or adjustments. Everyone i know of works great. Matt

    The two little steel balls inside the trigger can also cause problems. They must be spotless clean and have NO residue of any kind on them. Check them with a magnifier and bright light,

    Nope its not mine. I will be building a rifle on it for the first guy that bought one of those actions.
    They are stainless with melonite finish. Its a very hard durable treatment that hardens about .003 deep and makes the action slick and you cant gall the lugs.
    clean the trigger and dry it with brake clean, remove every piece inside, no lighter fluid.

    Is that the same for a Jewell, no lighter fluid?

    No, the design is different and lighter fluid in a Jewell is OK.

    forgive me if i missed in the prior posts... What is the loading port?? will it eat up a long throated 284 or SAUM with full grown bullets? Or must "nose-in" the cartridge?

    Had the same problem with a B&A. The side plate screws were to tight and binding something inside. Try loosening the screw tension just a hair and see if the problem disappears.

    The design of the horizontal lugs puts the port back a little. This is a long action body with a medium length bolt and port length (3.15"). The current version has a 2.4" port and loaded cases run 2.4" or so and guys are running them fast.
