Alpine, Ridgeline, Mountaineer, Bigfoot & Timberline actions

 

General Information

These are the most accurate repeater hunting actions on the market. They are manufactured to true benchrest tolerances and yet are made to be reliable in the field.

Alpine actions  fit stocks inletted for Remington 700 short actions with repeater models weighing 26-1/2 oz.

Ridgeline actions are a hybrid Remington 700 footprint.  This model is intended for mid length cartridges such as the 6.5×284 Win, 257 Roberts, 6MM Remington, 300 WSM, 7 WSM, 270 WSM and the RSAUM family of cartridges.

Timberline Actions fit stocks inletted for Remington 700 Long actions (Repeater action weighs 28 1/2 ounces)

A Magnum version of each requires lengthening port opening in stock.

Effective September 1, 2016 we added the Mountaineer action to the lineup.  It is available in short, long or medium action and is available as repeater or single shot.  The action is same footprint as Alpine and Timberline but do not have the lightening facets on side of action.  It looks more traditional and if requested as ground finish it can be polished easily.  The Mountaineer is also available with the mag well opening for AW magazines.  The Mountaineer series also has Borden bump option and is referred to as Mountaineer RR.  We are now taking orders for the Mountaineer Action model with integrated Recoil Lug.  That model is available with three bolt fits 1) Regular Alpine 2) Rimrock 3) PRS.  The PRS bolt fit has a Borden style bump at rear of bolt that has less than .002 inch clearance with action raceway hole and remainder is .006 inches to allow for the “dirt” experienced in PRS.

The Borden Bigfoot action is designed to be used for big magnums such as 338 Lapua Magnum and 300 Nosler family of cartridges.  The action is specifically designed to take the pressures and stresses associated with these cartridges without over stretching the steel or having lug set back.  The bolt is .748 in diameter with 1.093 diameter lugs that are .465 high. The action is 1.400 in diameter and utilizes a 1 1/8×18 TPI thread for the barrel tenon and the actions have an integral recoil lug. The actin is designed to fit in a Remington 700 long action inletted stock that has been opened slightly to accept the larger diameter.  The action is available single shot or with a mag well opening to accept the wyatt CFE12 magazine boxes or the CIP detachable magazine systems.  In fact we have special CFE12 internal mag boxes made for us by wyatt so gunsmiths do not have to bend the ears or shorten the ears on the box to work with the larger diameter bolt.
