    Don't you just hate that when they leave all of the other parts behind and just take the receiver!

    They didn't leave the other parts, parts were in the house. Action was in my shop.
    The SR # is 89666. I suspect it ended up in or around Ocala FL.

    Some smart thieves. The bare action is essentially worthless to them, but it is the only part which, even though totally inert and incapable of firing a bullet, is legally a "firearm". If the Einsteins are caught with it they can have their charges enhanced for possession of a firearm. That is grounds for revoking probation/parole or for a stiffer sentence. Brilliant.

    Have you thought about selling the parts and buying a complete receiver? People are always looking for bottom metal, magazine boxes, magazine springs and followers, ejectors, ejector housings and springs, triggers, etc.

    Selling the parts is the plan if no receiver shows up.

    Tradeexcanada does not ship to the US.

    Thanks to all

    There is a L579 receiver on Gunbroker. BIN for $500. Jump on it before it evaporates.

    Hi Rick;
    Thanks a lot! It was really nice of you to take your time to help find the action.
    The total was $554.99, and I'm pleased.
    I have a new old stock McMillan match 308 barrel and a nice stock blank two put together.
    Took two years to find the action.
    Jim

    Hi Jim

    Happy to help. My plans for it evaporated so I thought I would pass along the opportunity to you. I asked the seller to do the BIN. Glad that you were able to pick it up. Good price etc. Looked to me like it was almost new. Hope this works out for you. Post some pics of your project once you get going. I have another one coming in if you get crazy.
