Its cylindrical shape allows for ease of manufacturing with material readily available. This action, if combined with a Savage pre-fit barrel, allows users to swap out their barrels without the need for a gunsmith, if they decide to upgrade. The recoil lug is locked between the barrel nut and the receiver. This design allows for less wasted material without sacrificing accuracy. Works with R700 triggers. This means no custom inletting, no trips to the gunsmith, no cutting, and no filing to make things fit. Just drop in and go.

  A lightweight, all-steel action that is a great choice for a hunting rifle, match rifle, or a true crossover.  Available with 700 round top, or up to six scope slots on the integral 0, 10, 20, or 30 MOA scope mount and an integral recoil lug.  The open top allows top loading of BDL style magazines, but it can be used with detachable magazines also.

  The receiver is machined from one piece of pre-hardened 416SS. The bolt is machined from one piece of pre-hardened 4340 chrome moly, and threaded for interchangeable knobs. Wire EDM-cut, full-length lug ways result in smooth bolt operation, Average configuration weight between 26-32 oz. Action length and scope mount configuration are the main weight variables.

Shilen Barrels

Select Match Grade


  These stainless steel masterpieces of machining and lapping are intended for the competition shooter-- or even the hunter-- who wants the ultimate in accuracy and quality. These are our highest grade barrel and, of course, the most costly. What makes them so good that benchrest shooters, such as Tony Boyer, crave them? Consider this: To meet Select Match Grade criteria, the groove diameter must air gauge within .0003" of our standard diameter. Moreover, the uniformity of the bore cannot vary more than .0001" for the entire length of the barrel. These barrels are also completely stress relieved, and the bore is polished to a gleaming surface finish by our most experienced lappers.

Proof Research

Carbon or Steel Barrels


  Carbon fiber has long been hailed across many industries—aerospace, cycling, alternative energy—as a wonder material making everything lighter and stronger. When employed in a rifle barrel the benefits extend beyond reducing weight and increasing strength. The patented manufacturing process begins with full-profile, match-grade 416R stainless steel barrel blanks. These blanks are then turned down to a significantly reduced profile greatly reducing weight. This reduced contour barrel is then wrapped with high-strength, aerospace-grade carbon fiber impregnated with a proprietary matrix resin developed by, PROOF Research ACD. The carbon fibers  used have a unique ability to diffuse heat along the length of the barrel (much like fiber optics transmit light). Maintaining accuracy over longer sessions of fire, and live longer. They’re not just lighter—they’re better.
