Surgically Custom: The Surgeon Rifles Build Program
Stephanie Guenther, from the News Desk
Surgeon Rifles is known for building some of the world’s best rifles, but did you know they have a program for custom built rifles?
It’s a surprisingly simple process (though that doesn’t equate to easy; there is lots to consider!). Patrons first choose an action, the foundation upon which the rest of their rifle will be built. Once the customer has chosen the desired action, the rifle builder uses proprietary machining methods to complete the crowning, threading, and chambering of premium barrel blanks. According to Surgeon Rifles, this process creates what they describe as the “…most accurate bolt-action system on the market.”
In a 2016 Precision Rifle Blog article, Cal Zant compared other precision rifles to his own Surgeon Rifle.
“…this custom bolt-action was built for me by Surgeon Rifles. Surgeon not only makes one of the best actions for a tactical precision rifle, but they’ve also been producing tack-driving complete rifle builds for the most demanding shooters (including USSOCOM and PRS champions) for more than a decade.
Honestly, this has become my favorite rifle. While a lot of that simply comes down to personal preference, I love just about everything about it.”
All the necessary rifle components are coated with a baked-on ceramic coating known as Cerakote before being joined to the stock using Surgeon’s proprietary bedding process. After the bedding is cured, the stock is finished and the rifle is assembled.
The Surgeon Rifle build program offers the choice of three actions: the Scalpel Short Action, Scalpel Long Action, and Remedy XL action. According to Surgeon, each of these actions is world renowned for strength and accuracy. Take a look at these actions as described by their makers:
“The 591SA is specific to .223 Remington, .243 Win, 6XC, .260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308 Win. This action features a built-in 20 MOA MIL-STD 1913 rail and recoil lug. By integrating the recoil lug into the action, Surgeon creates a longer tenon length and strengthens the entire free-floated system. Starting at $4700.”
“The 1086LA is specific to 6.5 X 284, .284 Win, and .300 Win Mag. This action features a built-in 20 MOA MIL- STD 1913 rail and recoil lug. By integrating the recoil lug into the action, Surgeon creates a longer tenon length and strengthens the entire free-floated system. Starting at $4825.”
“The Surgeon Remedy 1581 XL Action is world renowned for strength and accuracy. The 1581XL is specific to larger calibers. This action features a built-in 30 MOA MIL-STD 1913 rail and recoil lug. By integrating the huge .450” recoil lug into the action, Surgeon creates a longer 1-1/8” x 16 tenon thread and strengthens the entire free-floated system. Starting at $5695.”
