Defiance Machine Deviant Receiver: Custom Remington 700 style action

Here are a few pictures of a Defiance Machine Deviant short-action receiver (100-012-650) from Brownells.  I used one of these for my 6.5×47 Lapua featured in 6.5 X 47 Lapua Range Report and Building a Custom Precision Rifle: Deviant 6.5×47 Lapua.

These are really nice, well made actions with an integral lug and rail.
