Hum, that is funny, because the rem 700 is used in all conditions without problem over here in North America. I'm not sure how much more harsh the winters are there, but its not a problem here in Montana. I suspect most all "mass produced" actions might have problems with ice/cold in very extreme conditions (I remember the L96 had this problem when Sweden was developing the PSG-90 which led to some changes that became the L96A1).
Hum, I like the sound of that!!I would assume there will be many nice cheep weapons to find in Sweden if you guys would fancy to import!
