there is a link here of what i was thinking part way down . its far from 80% there pricy but the steel is not cheap id also want my metal certifed with proof.
Next Project Rem 700 clone - Calguns.net
if some one could make a a reciver blank with powdermetal technoligy like the Ruger 77 that would be cool an likley cheaper to make an sell.
there saying this guy has taps an other stuff to finish a project.
I have thought numerious times about a tempered barrel extension that would screw onto a reminton 700 barrel that had the lugs for a remigton bolt or simular or even a ar10 type bolt . that extension if made right then be scrwed into any type of tube even aluminum. the back of the reciver dont need to be tempered. I was thinking the same for my 50 bmg project i i really needed is a barrel extension that would take a bolt head I could make the rest pretty easy. also i would not need $200 worth of expensive steel just enough for the extension.
