    saw an advert yesterday that allows you to buy just the barrelled action and then fit what stock you want think it was 50 for the Hogue, circa 200 for the laminate an circa 300 for the Bell & Carlson. So with current prices you could save about 100 with a Boyds.

    I don't think you can just buy the action, but I do know for sure that you can definitely
    buy just the barreled action and source a stock elsewhere.

    I have built three rifles up from a barrel Howa action. All were great rifles and accuracy was 1/2 MOA for two, and one was 1/4 MOA (was scary accurate).
