I have a Nesika Model J action and was wondering what other action "footprints" it is compatible with....reason being that I see several inletted or semi-inletted stocks for various other actions but haven't seen any that list the J model. Would like to know if it is the same as some other BR type actions. Thanks in advance for replies.

If youre gonna paint it then any stock is compatible. If youre looking for a direct drop in and bolt up youll have to find one done for that action.

Thanks Dusty,
I was thinking along the lines of a used stock....I have seen ads for used stocks indicating that it is inletted/bedded for an "X" action but a "Y" and "Z" action will also work....so I assumed the action screw spacing to be the same on "those" actions as well as the physical dimensions being the same or real close. Kind of thinking if a used stock was for sale and was inletted/bedded for a certain action then maybe my J action would have the same or close dimensions as well as screw spacing and all I would have to do is re-bed it. Just wondered if there was anything close to the J action. Thanks

Gene, a Borden Rimrock BR action is really close to the same footprint as a Nesika J. The loading port is a little longer on the Rimrock. I replace a Nesika J action with a Borden Rimrock action and all I had to do to the stock was extend the loading port cutout on the stock a little longer to the rear for the Rimrock.

Gluing an action in is the way to go so like mike said get a borden inlet and just let the port be long. Most dont have pillars in there for screws anyway so glue away
