Anyone know who makes a bolt action with a 20” barrel that’s not a 308? Full size stock or compact is fine. Even an 18” I’d be interested in. I hunt in MN and there’s a lot of brush to walk through sometimes so would like something smaller that can have a suppressor. Thanks.

I think Tikka makes a compact model with a threaded barrel.

tgunz64, i have a brand new tikka, never been fired, 223 chambered.

my gunsmith will make the barrel any length you want and thread it. he does great work. think he charges $40.00 if i remember correctly.

i am looking to sell the rifle. if you're interested in buying it and have my gunsmith do his thing to it, let me know. maybe we can work it out.

Fieldcraft makes an 18" threaded barrel model.

You can have any barrel cut and threaded for a reasonable price so pick the rifle you like and have it done.

Remington makes a Model 700 with a standard 20" barrel that is threaded.
Can't remember the different calibers but is on there web site.

Nice guns but $1900 for a brush gun is a bit much. For an out west mountain gun I wouldn’t hesitate spending that on it. I’m referring to the fieldcraft. The text options aren’t working right for me right now. Can’t quote either or delete and edit.

One of these in 6.5 Creedmoor would make for a pretty compact setup. Even with a can screwed on the end it'd still be pretty short. I've talked to a few different smiths about these Rem 783's and they all tell me the same thing, the actions are good and they come with a good barrel on them. Considering what they cost, if I was in the market for something like this, I'd have no problem taking a chance on one.

Or one of these if you wanted to spend a little more.

Whitaker's is/was selling the Fieldcraft's for $1149 in 22-250 and 243. No idea if they have any left though. Their website says out of stock, but when I called they still had some left.
