If you're considering a Remington, do a search for extractor and ejector problems, you'll find plenty. Probably the best manufacturer of reasonably priced chassis rifles that hasn't had mechanical problems is Howa or maybe Ruger (Precision Rifle) but unfortunately they don't make left handers.

The truth is, unless you're hunting critters that might kill you, or are shooting in timed competition, the occasional hangup in bolt operation is not the end of the world. You can go the custom build route, but the bare action would cost you as much as the entire Savage BA Stealth.

Tell us about these extractor and ejection problems on the 700.
I have more than a dozen 700's and any problem so far has been caused by myself.

Did you mean to say Savage extraction issues?

This was my thought as well. I spend far too much time reading articles and forum posts, in addition to having several buddies with R700’s and this “trend/defect” isnt familiar to me...

Pre-2014’ish X-mark Pro triggers are the only big trend i’m aware of.

I read about it everywhere except here. Calguns has a mysterious force that protects their 700 owners I guess. Just about every action "upgrade" package I remember seeing from custom gunsmiths includes a different type of extractor.

All you guys with 700's still have the original factory extractor?

Extractors are a "perception based upgrade" that gunsmiths get good money installing.
People perceive that bigger is better and they want a BIGGER extractor so they cut the safety rings and add all sorts of clearances to the 700 action to use the bigger extractor.

Most 700's I build wear a stock extractor because it works great and maintains the safety of the original 700 design.
Stock extractors typically outlive a barrel.
I broke an extractor on a blow-up of a rifle, but I also broke the ejector and turned the ejector spring into a curly pigtail and had to machine out the cartridge case from the bolt face.
I don't fault that extractor for failing in those conditions.
I wore out one extractor on the 3rd barrel on one of my 700's.
The rest of them are all on the original extractor.

I've never had any problems with either Remington or Savage extractors.
