Default Custom Rifle on Browning action?

Anyone know a custom rifle builder who uses a browning action?

I know carbon one customs does, but anyone aside from them? or someone who has a short bolt throw? 60degrees? 3 lug action? not a weatherby action either btw.


Also what's everyone's opinion of an HS precision rifle?

How about a Sako 75 action? I've never heard of anybody using Browning actions on custom builds. Another possibility (in the future from what I heard) would be the TC Icon actions.

Never heard or seen a custom rifle built on a Browning action.
I have no idea why.

I have an older Browning BBR bolt rifle. For a custom build I would consider it too heavy for a platform of a full up custom job.

An HS Precision is a fine rifle and I have considered having them build me one of their ultra light Mtn. rifles. They start out around $2700-2800. They build their own actions/triggers/stocks and barrels too I believe. Very nice...more of a semi-custom.

Pac-nor threads for them..amongst many others I'm sure. Trigger to your preference, drop it in a mcmillan atop pillars and glass and there's your custom rifle

I would think the older Brownies ( the FN's that are like a Mouser Action) would be a good base for one ?
