Just want to make it clear to anyone reading this thread who is contemplating buying the Mausingfield action that, just like any other custom action designed with Rem 700 footprint, the main components you typically buy to complete the build that you would have compatibility concerns about— stocks, triggers, mag boxes, follower, follower spring, bottom metal, action screws — if you pick Rem 700 style parts for those components, they will work with no problems. That’s all. Functionally, feature-wise, “above the stock line” parts-wise, no, it’s not a Rem 700 clone. But if they didn’t intend for you to use Rem 700 stocks, triggers, magazine parts, and bottom metal, they wouldn’t have made the action to have the exact same dimensions as a Rem 700 on the underside, where you’re concerned with mating it to aftermarket parts. The “ing” part of the name “MausINGfield” comes from “RemINGton” ...feature-wise, it’s a MAUSer-RemINGton-SpringFIELD synthesis.
So it's a Mausingremfield… Love it.  NOW that we've established THAT… 
Happy Christmas…

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

I don't know who might know this, But Ted Karagias, who owns ARC is a mechanical engineer from Duke University by training, and he has to have a great deal of technical knowledge of metallurgy and machining.  His products show it.  I think he has worked for Boing on the 777 in  his early career.  His short action magazines will fit AI style bottom metal, are center feed and allow bullets of over 2.955" OAL  simply because they are made from thinner steel and are rugged as hell.  They are absolutely perfect for 308 Win derived cartridges and allow the use of long ogive bullets.

Here are a couple of examples 

6mm Comp Match 105g ICBM (prototype for now). 46.5gr Superformance (SPR) 3246 fps, COL 2.950" feeds flawlessly.

6mm CM, 96gr ICBM,47.5 gr SPR COL 2.950" 3350 fps, feeds flawlessly

308 Win from 24" Bartlein 150gr Bulldozer, COL 2.90", WLRM primer, 50gr Leverevolution 3119 fps.  Fits the ARC mag perfectly. 

One could not fit these rounds in a Kimber or Remington 700 SA action production rifle or AI short action mags simply because the magazine internal capacity is TOO SHORT because of inefficient space utilization due to poor design.  Yet these rounds perform like WSMs  from 308Win-derived brass!

The Mousingfield short action and magazine is like putting a heavy duty transmission in your project car. It will allow you to accommodate more horsepower
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. TR

Having done a bit of research into the Mausingfield before commissioning a build, it seems to me that the philosophy was to have the good features we like about Mauser / CRF / Positive extraction features people like with a footprint that fits more accessories such as triggers and stocks

Was sure I had a point when I started this post...

Also the versatility of a barrel nut as well.
