Thanks for the advice!recknagel are based out of Germany, they sell under the name ERA-TAC here in the states. Spuhr is another great option.
Oddly enough, I ordered a sage green AX308 that should be here Thursday as well. I'm stoked. I've been wanting an AI for 12 years and I'm finally getting one.PB ain't on an AT either. You’ve got black, ODG, and Tan.
I picked ODG obviously because I’m not a peasant.. should be here Thursday!
Edit: I was wrong! ODG still the best for an AT, Sage Green for an AX.
Agreed. Here you go! This is a picture from last year.Rockne
This thread is for aficionados of Accuracy International and perverts like me who want a glimpse at it. Take your Sako weilding propaganda elsewhere please and make room for more photos I can look at.
To be fair I upgraded because of a great deal. If I could pick a color, I would pick black because it looks most badass.Agreed. Here you go! This is a picture from last year.
*Fun fact about the guys shooting these rifles, from top to bottom:
1) Upgraded to AXMC and NF 7-35
2) Upgraded to AXMC.
3) Upgraded optic to Razor G2 w/Spuhr mount.
4) My rifle...unchanged haha.
Bonus fun fact, we were shooting a match in IL, otherwise all four of us shoot suppressed!

I don't think anyone questions why one would upgrade to any AI variantTo be fair I upgraded because of a great deal. If I could pick a color, I would pick black because it looks most badass.

Now I need to find the right back pack to carry it in.[/QUOTE
Kuiu. Hands down best pack system I have used!!
So your biggest criticism of AIs is the trigger? Have you felt the AI competition trigger?Since I'm already here . . . if you're not looking for multi-caliber capability, get yourself a Sako TRG42 in .338. Be warned, though, every "tactical" trigger (including AI's) will feel like garbage after you get the Sako's set to your liking. The Sako trigger makes the AI trigger feel like a Nerf gun. If you're in the Middle Tennessee area any time, let me know and you can shoot mine.
ETA: The downsides to the Sako are: 27" barrel (a bit too long), Euro threading for muzzle devices, expensive magazines, and you have to work a little bit to get it to accept something like a PVS30 (but it can be done with KRG stuff). The upside is that it's insanely accurate, weighs, what 2/3 the weight of an AI?, Trigger, Trigger, Trigger, and did I mention that it's insanely accurate?
You're welcome to bash AI on the forums all you want, just do it in your own thread and leave the rest of us, who enjoy AIs, to enjoy this thread about AIs... That's why it was made in the first place. Feel free to go start your own AI haters thread and have a ball!Lesser . . . hahahahaha. I provided the positives and the negatives of the TRG - objective. If you say anything negative about AI on this forum, you get slandered. AI makes a good LOOKING rifle.
Perhaps, if you spent more time SHOOTING your AI, and less time LOOKING at it, you would develop the skill to appreciate it. A little less time trolling this thread couldn't hurt either.If you say anything negative about AI on this forum, you get slandered. AI makes a good LOOKING rifle.
….and then start your own thread. If you love the TRG, great! They are nice rifles. After you start this new TRG thread, post some groups, dot drills, or some other tangible proof of their immeasurable superiority to the AI. Until then, you know what you can do with your pie hole.Buy what you want. Buy what you can afford. Get proficient with it, and be proud of that.
Did you pause to think your ACI was out of spec, not the 8.k rifle? Or is that in another thread?Then you haven't looked hard enough. See post #437, page 9 of this thread. I posted here before I could even get the AX from the gun shop. It's back a few pages, but it's there. I was ECSTATIC. I couldn't wait to get it out there to shoot. I spent some time getting it all set up perfectly, but when I went to put on my ACI, and it wouldn't fit over the rail (because, I would learn, it was out of spec (and still is). WEEKS went by, I was sent a 2ND AX (same exact rifle, spec wise), and was given the green light to shoot it even though its rail was out of spec, too. That was FEBRUARY. A LOT happened between now and then, but I still don't have an IN-spec rail. 8 MONTHS!

This sounds like it was supposed to be an insult. Maybe it's not, but it sounds like it is. If you don't have a level and you're shooting beyond, say 300 yards, you're doing it wrong (my range goes to 1250).
