The Borden Rimrock actions are made to very tight specifications. Bolt lockup and smoothness of bolt operation is unsurpassed in the industry. The action bodies and bolts are made to a hardness that results in slick operation and anti-gall characteristics. Each fire control assembly is hand honed and fitted to result in perfect trigger timing as well as smooth, bind free operation of the firing pin and cocking piece.

Rimrock actions feature the "Borden Bumps" These actions are made to specifications and tolerances that are unmatched in any other Remington "clone" action on the market.

Borden Rifles was started in the early 1980’s, by Jim Borden. He began building his own rifles and eventually started building them for others.
