Got my TL Technologies action today from mr. Jack Lyons. This is my first custom action since my Stiller Predator (which I regretfully sold) in 2010. I have full blue printed Remington 700s with PTG bolts so that’s my base line for comparison. First, Mr. Lyons communication, price, payment options, shipping, and overall transaction was great. The pictures below are everything I got, including shipping, for $750.00! Overall transaction took 4 weeks, from order, to payment, to receiving. Second, the action is nice. I would say it falls right in its price point. Nicer than a trued up Remington but not as nice as say a defiance (have experience with them with my buddies custom rifles). The bolt is smooth to operate, but is a little more difficult to open then a Remington. I’m assuming because it’s a control round feed action. The threading looks very nice and clean. And the action is very solid. I need figure out how to weigh it. There were complaints about the engraving from other members, but I think the issue was fixed bc mine looks really good. I got the “tactical” bolt handle and it looks very good. It’s threaded so I can easily change it if need be. Every looks clean. The action face, timing, recoil lug, bolt face all look clean and well machined. I don’t have the tools to measure though. Just my initial impression. The bolt fluting is very, very well done. It’s three, light, spiral flutes down the bolt. I really like the look. The timney trigger breaks at a clean 2.5lbs, too. For the bad, the recoil lug is “pinned.” It’s not really. It’s like a center marking to line up the recoil lug. You can actually just wiggle it out by hand. I got mine ceracoated by mr. Lyons. The finish is nice. It’s a good looking paint job, but I’m not sure if because of shipping it got beat up a little? There are wear spots on some of the high points. Maybe it was mr. Lyons doing some test fitting?? Lastly the rail is well done, and fitted nicely to the receiver, but the screws holding it down stick out! I lost four slots for mounting options for my scope. The real test will be once I get it built. This will be a 300WSM build on a LA. It’s going to be a walking varminter, hunter, long range rifle. The action is in the Rem 700 stock that I’m using for the build and it fits perfectly. Overall, for first impressions, I’m pleased. I got a lot for $750. It’s going to be a pretty Rifle once I’m done.
