Bolt Action Rifle Services & Prices

* We work exclusively on Remington 700, most Savage, Stevens 200, and most custom actions*

Note: All of the rifles we build have our logo and the caliber designation engraved on the barrel by a CNC machine. All factory components removed or replaced during the build will be retained by Snipe Custom Arms, LLC, unless otherwise specified.


ACTION TRUING/BLUEPRINTING $265
Truing the action includes squaring off the receiver face, lug abutment faces and re-cutting/over-sizing the receiver threads, as well as truing up the bolt lugs and bolt face. The receiver is held in a special fixture to reduce any stress during this process. All machining is held within .00015" - .00025"
concentricity to the receiver's bolt raceway, which in turn allows the lug abutment face and the receiver face to be perfectly perpendicular to each other.


BARREL CHAMBERING/INSTALLATION $325
Chambering the barrel includes cutting/threading the barrel tenon to a tight and hand-lapped barrel to action fit, indexing the bore's curvature to the 12 o'clock position when the barrel is installed onto the receiver, cutting the chamber to your specification, and adjusting the headspace to .001" to .002". For the complete chambering operation, the barrel blank is carefully indicated via the bore within .00015" to .00025", and the finished chamber will show no measurable run-out in relationship to the bore, when measured with a .0001" dial indicator.


MUZZLE BRAKE INSTALLATION $155 ($115 IF OTHER WORK IS BEING DONE TO THE BARREL)
Installing a muzzle brake includes threading the muzzle and timing the brake to the correct position. For this process the barrel is carefully indicated via the bore within .00015" to .00025".


TAPER/BLEND MUZZLE BRAKE $55
For a seamless blend, the muzzle brake will need to be tapered down to match the OD of the barrel. For this process the barrel is carefully indicated via the OD of the barrel, within .00025".


BARREL THREADING $115
We thread the barrel to minimum Class 3A dimension. For this process the barrel is carefully indicated via the bore within .00015" to .00025".


MUZZLE CROWNING $45
A bad crown will cause inaccuracy. Therefore, re-crowning an older barrel or cutting a perfect crown on a new barrel is of paramount importance. We offer different crown styles, all at the same price. For this process the barrel is carefully indicated via the bore within .00015" to .00025".


REMINGTON 700 BOLT KNOB CONVERSION $95
Our bolt knob conversion is a tough one! Due to the cast iron manufacturing process, some Remington bolt handles tend to have air bubbles trapped inside. Just threading the handle and screwing on a larger bolt knob can, and will, weaken the structural integrity. To prevent this, we install a 10/32 hardened alloy machine screw into the bolt handle. To do so we indicate the Remington 700 bolt via a special fixture in our lathe, remove the original bolt knob, thread the bolt handle to 5/16 x 24, drill out and thread the inside of the bolt handle, insert a hardened 10/32 alloy machine screw and face off handle for a nice and smooth end product. Lastly, we screw on the bolt knob you have selected.


SPIRAL FLUTE REMINGTON 700 BOLT $95
A fluted bolt is not only aesthetically pleasing, it also adds to the rifle's reliability. First, the flutes naturally collect any dirt and debris around the action, which guarantees that the bolt operates flawlessly, even in the dirtiest environments. Secondly, the flutes provide versatile year-round shooting,
even in harsh winter conditions. A rain and snow mix will freeze on ordinary bolts, but will not on a fluted bolt due to the fact that there’s less metal in contact with the receiver's bolt raceway . If conditions do exist where ice is forming, it’s easy to crush the ice with the sharp edges of the flutes that
are created by the milling process.


M16 EXTRACTOR CONVERSION $165 ($125 IF OTHER WORK IS BEING DONE TO THE BARREL)
The M16 extractor is very reliable design and can handle even the largest pieces of brass.
NOTE: To perform this extractor conversion we will need your barrel as well, as we need to open up the bolt nose recess cut in the barrel breach.


SKIM BEDDING $175
Skim bedding a rifle stock is necessary to achieve maximum accuracy and action fit on a rifle stock with an aluminum bedding block (like H-S Precision or Bell & Carlson). We use Devcon Steel Putty 10110 for the bedding, as our testing has proven it to be the strongest available. Using a light layer of Devcon 10110 on top of the aluminum bedding block assures a proper stress-free fit of the barreled action into the stock, which guarantees that the action returns to the same location in the stock, shot after shot. 

*There is an additional $45 charge if old bedding needs removed from your stock.*

 

EPOXY & PILLAR BEDDING $275
Epoxy and pillar bedding a rifle stock is necessary to achieve maximum accuracy and action fit out of a rifle stock like a McMillan, Manners Composite (without their mini chassis) and wood stocks. We use Devcon Steel Putty 10110 for the bedding, as our testing has proven it to be the strongest available. Filling in the small cavities and material grain assures a proper stress-free fit of the barreled action into the stock, which guarantees that the action returns to the same location in the stock, shot after shot. The aluminum pillars guarantee metal to metal contact of the action and the bottom metal, which assures the same torque will be applied every time the barreled action is put back into the stock after maintenance. This prevents the stock from being crushed from the torque applied by the action screws. This creates a rock solid mount.

*There is an additional $45 charge if old bedding needs removed from your stock.*


SCOPE BASE BEDDING $55
Bedding the scope base ensures that it will fit your receiver flawlessly and stress free, without the slightest bending of the scope base when torqued down to the manufacturer's specifications. This guarantees a perfectly straight scope tube, which results in more precise scope adjustments and
prevents the possibility of damaging the scope.
