    They are very good. Has the floating bolt head like a savage but you can not change them out which is it's only negative. Mine has a calvin elite. They will take any rem trigger and fit any rem 700 stock. It's a very good action, finely finished and accurate. If you buy the barreled action from them and drop it into your own stock you can save a bunch of money on taxes. The bot lug is pretty thick (.300) and you can have a skinnier one specified which is a change I would make if buying another one.
