It's a very good action. A great foundation for a build.

James @ NSS can get you set up with a barrel, nut & lug.

Stocks are fairly plentiful from Choate, Boyd's and others.

Single shot floor plates can be had for the action if serious long range, benchrest or F Class are of interest. If so an early dual port 3 hole target stock is a " bolt on " leaving the middle screw out of course.

A lot of them don't  need it but a bolt lift kit and a little polishing smooth them up very nice. Rifle Basis Sav 2 trigger will get down to ounces of pull weight if you don't like the Accutrigger.

Unlimited possibilities with almost instant gratification for a DIY guy.

I'm using a Savage 12 precision action with left port.
And another sitting on the shelf for the next build.
They are extremely capable actions. If weight is a
concern, these actions weigh a bit more then others.
