    This is just a sneak peek of what we've been working on last few days. First, a little history:

    Prior to Remington imploding, the Custom Shop was down the street from me in the Dakota Arms/Nesika building where I worked years ago. In December of 2020, the RCS liquidated a bunch of their inventory and I was lucky enough to be able to buy some of it. A bunch of Model 7 receiver bodies was part of that purchase. They've been sitting on the floor here ever since and I'm basically tired of looking at them. (So is my accountant, lol)

    This week I had enough. I had my "blueprinter guy", Derek start working on them. Here is what we're doing:

    LRI Tier 1 CNC 5 Axis receiver blueprint service:
    • 8-40 base holes, 4 hole pattern
    • Rear tang hole opened to from 8-32 to 1/4-28 so that it matches the front screw
    • Ejection port resurfaced so that it doesn't look like it was cut with a belt sander
    • Receiver ring threads altered to 1.085-16
    • Higbee lead thread modification
    • Internally chamfered front scope base hole
    • Drilled for LRI pinned recoil lug
    • Receiver ring face resurfaced
    • Lug abutments resurfaced
    • Single stroke diamond-honed receiver bore

    That covers the receiver body stuff. I have well over 100 of these things. Bolts however are a different story. When this purchase was made Rome was burning so it was literally a grab what you could situation.

    The bolts that we do have will get the following:

    LRI Tier 1 CNC 5 Axis bolt blueprint service:
    • Bolt nose resurfaced
    • Bolt face resurfaced
    • Forward side of lugs resurfaced
    • Rear side of lugs resurfaced
    • LRI M16 extractor install
    • Threaded/induction soldered bolt nose bushing to whatever cartridge size the CST asks for
    Elective options:
    • Bolt fluting
    • Faceted bolt shroud (CST supplied)
    • Dual ejectors
    • Tac knob installs
    • Time/Tig bolt handle
    • 40x Time/Tig bolt handle upgrade

    Just so we're clear on a few things:

    These items are NOT YET FOR SALE. PLEASE do not call the shop about this just yet. I will make another formal announcement once were ready. My guess is it'll be a week or so. We are still working on the receivers.

    Understand that this sale will be for the receivers, recoil lugs (made by LRI), and the bolt bodies that I have in inventory. We have NO small parts or fire controls for these actions. You are on your own when it comes to sourcing that stuff.

    Note also that we are pinning these receivers for LRI MADE RECOIL LUGS ONLY.

    Because bolts are in short supply, my plan is to hold off on doing any work to them until the sale is made. This way bolt face diameters can be tailored to whatever you guys decide to chamber these things in.

    Give us about a week gents. You all have been asking for this for a while now and we're super close to having it ready to kick off. Not too much longer.


    -That covers the "Part One" of this effort.

    Part Two is a sale on a metric shit ton pile of Nesika Bay Precision receivers along with a very small quantity of random Nesika bolts. Again, I bought all this stuff when the RCS began to implode. Understand that these receivers will require a bolt that I WILL NOT BE PROVIDING. You are on your own. If you are a home smith, shop, whatever, and feel like taking a stab at a winter project, then this is probably a good fit for you. If you are a Nesika owner already, maybe this can work as a switch bolt, multiple receiver-type build or whatever. I just want to make this plainly stated up front so that there are no misunderstandings. Any hurt feelings here are self-induced. Again, don't call the shop about this just yet as we need to lay em out so that I can get a count and itemize exactly what we have. I do have some small parts for these actions/bolts. I have some shrouds and a few springs/pins, etc. . . We'll go through all that stuff when we announce the sale formally.

    Thanks for looking and keep an eye out here in a week or so. Photos are just random pics I uploaded that detail what we do here on receivers and bolts.

    Bout time someone started pimping model sevens. I got a few that have been run over by a shop in KC. Most were personal projects that I acquired from the builder but all are great shooters

    please start making a bottom metal since the BO M7 is no hard to come by and stupid expensive.

    Hello,

    1. Are these Tier 1 packages available to customer supplied rifles?
    2. Will the re-cut receiver threads and LRI lug allow use of prefits?

    And I'll 2nd the inquiry about a Model 7 DBM!

    Thank you!
