Alpine, Ridgeline, Timberline and Mountaineer Actions
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 (Repeater action weighs 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 long or short 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. Click here for more info and a picture of the Mountaineer action.
Effective 3/21/18 we are no longer offering Titanium action–we are filling teh orders we have but have decided to remove them from our offerings.

Ring and Base options
Ring and base combinations made for Remington 700 actions will not work on Borden Alpine or Borden Timberline actions. The screw holes in our actions are 8×40 and are spaced .860 apart. The rear bridge is the same height as front receiver ring thereby eliminating the possibility of using bases made for the Remington 721/722/700 family of actions. Here are some options for Rings and bases we have available:
- Talley style bases made of 7050 Aluminum
- Talley unitized rings made for our actions. These rings do not utilize bases and are made specifically for our actions so that the foot of the ring fits within the scallops on the action. ($53)

- 1 piece Picatinny rails in neutral or 20MOA ramp made of aluminum or black oxide colored chrome moly steel .
