    Aside from non timing of the extraction cam, the bolt face looks like it was cut with a dull cutter, just like the 700 lefty VS I purchased back 1996, which had a host of other problems with that gun. Remington has been run by bean counters long enough now that I will not consider buying anything from what used to be my favorite brand of rifle. I now prefer Sako actions. “Quantity Over Quality”, the best way drive a company out business.

    Seems we had this discussion a while back. Seems Remington forgot how their actions were supposed to work. No primary extraction. No clue at Remington. Did you check the contact on the lugs? Get some machinist blue and paint the back side of the lugs with it. Then insert the bolt and open/close a number of times. In addition to the timing issue with no primary extraction, the last action I bought had only a scratch across one of the lugs. 5 percent contact at best. Hard to believe they could produce a product like that.

    Then again there have been comments here that Rem 700 actions are good enough as is that they don't need truing, etc.
    BTW, with CNC available what's to stop someone else from producing them the way they are supposed to be produced? Any patent protection should have expired long ago.

    Some of the custom action are built on the Remington pattern. Plus there is companies that make Remington bolts as a replacement for the crap factory bolts. Also. On this forum’s home page is a brief summery of custom action, and some of those actions are built on the Remington pattern, and as a side note, all the after market replacement triggers to replace the Remington, Walker, Liability law suit trigger, to which that is a whole other discussion in its self.

    Ever watch fastest car on Netflix? It's like that.
    Some $hit boxes, as they refer to them, can be damn fine. However, they'll never offer the whole package of speed, handling and comfort of a super car.
    Imo, it's nice to have the option to build one. You can do more and more to make it nice as can be as you go. Eventually you may turn it into a super hunting rifle and compete with a custom, or not. The dual port option is tough to beat in some disciplines. By then you'll know what you need to know.

    Can't they tinker with the CNC program to eliminate some of these issues so that the action is made "right the first time"?

    Remington 700 bolts are not made from one piece on a CNC. The bolt handle is a separate piece that is silver soldered on.

    I grew up a “Remington Man”. So, it hurts me to say it, but if you want to build on a factory action, try the Tikka T3.

    Understood, but the body likely is. And the action as well.

    CNC is only as good as the fixturing. A small chip in the fixture can be enough to get things out of whack.

    Actually the bolt head is a separate piece from the bolt body itself, the bolt body and the bolt head are joined together during the manufacturing process. Just another thing to go wrong when tolerances are a bit out of spec in the wrong direction.
    To Remingtons credit the bolt body and bolt head are usually joined well enough that the seam is not noticably visible but I have seen a few where the seam was clearly visible.

    The fixture that holds the handles for soldering must be a real good one- nice, solid and built to last because they have been putting them in the same wrong spot since the 70’s

    The handle needs to move forward about .020-030" and counter clockwise about 10-15°

    How likely is a custom bolt to fit with near 100% lug contact?
