Piecing together a bolt gun and looking at these two manufacturers for an action, but I have no experience with either. Anyone have some first hand experience you wouldn't mind sharing?

17" lightweight 7mm08 threaded barrel from McGowen with the action out of a lightweight hunter.

What are you saying or implying here? I am curious because my BIL has a Defiance and was seeing some brass neck flattening issues. I have a Stiller and like it. the Defiance is definitely a tighter smoother action but its also about 500.00 more!

I'm implying, see which one has the better design. Surgeon used to have the thin little clip like extractor as seen in a Rem 700. They may all have an M-16 type extractor.

I'll reserve my comments on a Stiller action for a private conversation.

Imo after playing with both I would go impact precision over those two.

I would like to see a test done with all the custom actions one cares to amass and then the big name mass produced actions, a Winchester, ruger, rem, wby(vanguard and mk5), tikka... etc. All fitted with the same quality barrel with the same quality in craftsmanship and assembly and feed them the same quality of ammo tuned to the gun and see how much difference it makes.

It won't, as far as wich shoots tighter. I've shot lots of small, as well as PRS matches. You'll see every manner of action shoot terrific. The difference in preference of one action to another is bolt throw degrees, extractor, ejector, what triggers it accepts, two or three lug, ect. ect.

Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Powerstroke, Duramax, Cummins.

That would sway me one way.

Look at Stuteville Precision as well. Wade was a founder of Surgeon, and is now on his own. His have M-16 style extractors.
