I saw on the Midway web page that they are finally advertising the Remington Model 98 mauser style barreled actions. Has anyone actually seen one of these? If I recall correctly they showed up in the Remington catalog this year and that they are actually made by someone overseas. I don't recall all the styles offered but a nice stainless long action M98 sporter would be neat.
I also saw that Midway was offereing M700 actions only. I don't know if they are actions that Midway pulled the barrels from or if Remington is actually selling the bare actions. The difference is in the legal aspects - if you make a pistol from a action that has never had a rifle barrel on it you are making a pistol; if the action has had a rifle barrel fitted to it you are making a short barreled rifle. Hence the lack of many actions only we would like to be avaliable to build pistols on.
