Probably the regular AI black as I don’t think cerakote elite is done here in the UK (yet?).
I also have a black AX, amazing rifle and the color is nice 👍🏻

Just called Mike at MHSA to get a fully packaged kit (AI, thumbhole, SPHUR, Atlas, NV mount, HRD rail mount, Borka, and am having them install my optic). He emailed me an incredible offer on my list of goodies. Looking forward to saving a bit more and purchasing an AT.

Excited that all I need to order separate is an optic, probably an SS 10x42 HD, until I can afford Tier 1 glass. More excited to be able to have everything installed and torqued correctly so all I have to do is take it out of the box, go to the range, and shoot.

Covertnoob5 - how do you find the 20" on the 300 win mag? What sort of ranges did/have you shot at? Im still torn on barrel length, given the factory twist is slowish on what others are using to lob heavy projectiles at distance.

I noticed the action face on my new AI has a small ding where the barrel is shouldered.
Do you all think this is something to be concerned about or am I way too picky? If I run a razor blade across the face it doesn't catch at all.

Thanks 20180509_150813.jpg

I sent a mail to AI and here is the answer:

The colour is our standard black – the Elite Midnight didn’t take off and is no longer a colour option.
Interesting, saying it didn't take off sounds strange to me. I tried ordering an AX in Elite Sand last year but was told it would not be available until half of 2018.
Ah well, we can always have it Cerakoted somewhere. At the rate my receiver is taking hits from extracted brass that black cerakote won't last that long anyway 😉 It's being chipped away one shot at a time.

Ordered same rifle (Elite Sand)last summer. My dealer says AI told him it's being built this month. As I am thinking about putting a Tangent Theta with the proposed new reticle on it I can guarantee both will show up at the same time! Max cash crunch time:eek:

Hi all.

Has anyone got a picture of a dark earth AX fitted with the S&B scope in RAL 8000 colour? I have the scope and trying to decide which colour is closer to it....Pale Brown or Dark Earth......

Thanks

The big dog looks good with the new accessories!

Here’s yours all done up.....proof in the mix, but that comes with a wait. I’ve got 200 rds loaded up to break in and do some testing and 150 prime for this weekend. 25” SAC MTU 6.5CM. It’s as heavy as the LA with the Proof ha.

My AX needs some Cerakote work as its getting fairly dinged up and scratched. Im leaning towards a Kryptek Highlander pattern as it is already sand in color. If I wanted to keep the standard sand color, does anyone have the color name that is closest to sand in the Cerakote inventory?

I'm looking to order my AX this month and wanted to ask a question on fitting a bipod. The AX rifle comes with 2 extra accessory rails, can anyone tell me if these are standard Picatinny rails that I can bolt under to the rifle to then fit an Atlas Bipod or do I need to order an extra set of picatinny rail from AI to fit their proprietary Quickloc system?

Thanks

They are standard rails so no problem with an atlas.

Gentlemen,
Ii just picked up my AX and was hoping to swap my NF ATACR from my AT using the same rings. The rings and objective cleared on the AT because there is no forward rail past the receiver. I am using NF Ultralight rings in MED height (A223) 1" in height. I have used the scope ring calculator in the past for my projects, but it does not account for the forward rail section of the hand guard on the AX. I don't want to go overly high on the rings and want to keep the bell close to the rail if possible. For a 56mm objective with a flip cap cover, what height rings should I order from NF to clear the forward hand guard rail?

Does anyone here have an AI AW L115A3 in .338LM? Is it capable of taking the AX338 double stack magazines?

You can get away with 1.375" if you're using Butler Creek's, but if you want to run Vortex Defenders or Tenebreax, you'll want the 1.5's for traditional rings, or 1.44/1.5 with the unimounts or magmounts.
Couldn't he also remove the top rail if he isn't going t run clip ons?

I have a AT in this configuration. PM me and I'll text you pics if you want. Haven't taken any pics worthy of the thread yet lol.

The Dark Earth is going to be much closer. I have the S&B PSR scope, and it's nearly a match. I have the RAL8000 caps on my scope and they're not quite a match, but it's close.

I disagree. I have two sets of nightforce 1.375 Ultralights on S&B 56MM scopes (one using Tenebraex and one using Butler Creeks), and they are fine. One set was previously used to mount a Kahles, so I'm fairly certain 1.375 will work for any 56mm scope (I'm sure that NF actually specifically designed this for their own 56mm scopes on continuous-rail type rifles (AI, MRAD).

Please see my post above. NF 1.375s Ultralights will work just fine (in fact are the perfect height). I have two sets of the 6-screw models.

Well I finally bit the bullet and bought an AX308 from Mike @ Mile High. Dudes a rockstar for sure! Gonna be ordering up a 6mm Creedmoor barrel in a week or so, but got her out today to get it zeroed in. So excited to get more rounds downrange with it soon.
Hey WtxShooter,

Is that an SP 4001? Its nice to see more 42mm ATACRs in the party!
