I shot a friends suppressed 223 built off an impact action all day yesterday at a PRS match and it was amazing. My trued 700 is pretty smooth for a 700 but compared to the impact it was garbage. If i had the money for a custom action i would most definitely be buying an impact!
Which 223 mags did you use? The AI brand, accurate mag, MDT? I got a 223 bolt and barrel but haven’t swapped out yet and was curious which mag fed the 223 rounds smooth.

I had Wade Stuteville get me a .223 barrel for my Impact and it was amazingly accurate. The rifle didn't like Accurate mags, but fed beautifully with polymer AICS 223 magazines.

That explains why I bought 2.5 buttloads of them...

I’ve got a Remington 700 5R in the for sale section that I would be willing to trade for an Impact Action if anyone has an extra. PM me interested. Hope I’m not breaking any rules here but I figured if anyone had an Impact they wished to part with, they would be here :)

If i need to remove, pls lmk.

Received the last piece today. Now just the countdown until range time Saturday to see how it does. As others have said the action is super smooth already, cant wait to feel it after a couple hundred rounds.

The fitment will basically just be determined by how well the A5 is inletted.
It can fit like a glove if done right, or butchered by a guy with a dremel.

Wade has one on the front page of his website:
https://www.stutevilleprecision.com/
Looks like a nice fit to me(y)
Mcmillan did a great job on their Inlet for the Impact. They graciously made one tweak to the tang area at my request after a few stocks had been built. Even the earliest ones fit very well, though.

I really like this action and the reviews but is it silly to be hung up on the trigger hanger issue and how the action wont drop in some stocks without needing extra fitment work? I feel like I want a simple action that will drop into any chassis without additional work.

Pretty sure most chassis will work.

A stock like mentioned above is a different story. Most stocks need a little work depending on action.

I have a budget of around $2k. I just got Tikka T3 30-06 that I will throw GAP LRHSi on and was wondering if you guys had suggestions for optics for Impact 18” 6.5 creed. I could go up to $2.5k. Thanks

MPA and Foundation are drop in. The latest Manners mini chassis (since February) are drop in. J Allen has a cage that is drop in as well.

Why not get the same scope? I run a Bushnell DMR (GAP reticle) on my 23” 6.5creed and recommend staying with the same reticle across Rifles. Simplifies things. Those can be had for $1,000-1,300 on here in classified

I had dmr ii GAP Gen 3 I sold and currently have hdmr ii w/ h59. Great scopes but I feel like I want to step it up to the next level with the Impact action. Was looking at MK5 HD H59. Thoughts?

I felt this way about the gap tempest but with the impact I do what I need it’s that good of an action. I own two foundation stocks but love my krg whiskey 3 and modified the chassis to work. It’s so worth it....

I have an MK5 with the TMR reticle on one of my guns and really like it. I actually have another still in the plastic wrap brand new that I may list here soon. PM me if you are interested and I can make you a deal.

Man for that budget you could really step up to used scopes like a Schmidt, atacr, or kahles k624i. I’ve seen in just a few pages , all of these on the for sale section for $2300 or under. I like all three and feel like at that level it just depends on features that fit you best and what you like.

I like how MPA is a drop in fit. However like others said, no dice with KRG. But apparently its easy to modify the inlet. I just dont want to. Ive got a Magpul Pro chassis im going to test though. Will post results.

I forgot to mention the Magpul Pro. This should drop in as well. They bought an action to ensure fit and had it at SHOT as a rifle.

Awesome! Yeah I noticed some pictures with the action in there and I figured that was enough for me to go ahead and pull the trigger on it. I wasn't sure if it was modified though just for pictures, but it's good to hear it will indeed fit! Thanks!
For anyone reading,
Impact Precision Customer support is top notch guys. They are here on the forums, they pick up the phone and answer emails without fail. I even got sent a free shirt because they were out of stock when I tried to buy an action. When they came back in stock (just a couple days later) they apologized to me for being out of stock and sent me a shirt lol. Who does that?! They even let me pick out a serial number and spent a good half hour on the phone with me talking about how the action was built and the idea behind every little part (even little details like why the bolt stop shroud extends from the body and what the protrusion should be at, spring weights, clearance tolerances etc...)
The action speaks for itself. I couldn't be a bigger Impact fan at this point.

Well for someone who has no history in ranges past 400yards, I have run 80 rounds of 6.5creed thru my Impact build, 23.5” muller works barrel, MPA comp chassis, Bushnell DMR. Probably 30 of those were between 800-1150 yards. This gun makes me look good. Granted the targets are 2’x2’ but seeing the impacts where my reticle was held is nice. The action is insanely smooth. Really loving it.

Just how much work would go into modifying a KRG Bravo or XRay to work with the impact? Has anyone done it yet?
Man I do not know personally how much it takes but from what I’ve heard it just takes some relief where the trigger hanger goes in. Any competent gunsmith would be able to do it fairly quickly and get it up and running. Sorry to not have a definitive answer but I have never put an Impact or seen a KRG apart to know how much.

I really love my Impact! Shout out to Tate for getting me set up with a proper PRS rig. Mine came complete from the factory in 6mm Creedmoor, Foundation stock, 26” barrel, and ARCA Swiss FL rail. I topped it with a Spuhr SP-4001 mount and Nightforce ATACR 7-35X56 F1 Riflescope with Mil-C reticule. I got interested in this rifle after shooting a friends Impact at the local club.

As a former benchrest competitor, I have to say this rig is bench rest accurate, has one of the smoothest actions, and best barrels I have ever owned. It ballances perfectly over a bag and the ARCA rail gives you lots of options.

I am pushing a Berger Hybrid 105 at 3140 fps. Here is a 5 shot, 100 yard group during early load development. I just quit and started shooting steel.

I've run about 5000 rounds of 6BR and 6Dasher through these actions and I've not had one feeding or ejection issue with them. The actions are amazingly smooth.

I did have an issue with a firing pin assembly when I dropped it on the floor when I pulled it apart to clean it. I bent the firing pin, but Wade had me one in the mail the next day.

These guys are simply the best in the business.
Did you have to do anything modifications to the mags? I've got one coming and going to be running a 6br in it so curious!

Nope! I do use a Primal Rights mag spacer kit but some guys don't even do that. This action feeds and extracts the popular BR-based cartridges perfectly.

I got my Impact back in August but I wanted to run it for a while before giving my feedback.

Put in in a MPA and bolted on a Diamond, no fitment problems at all. I threaded on a Stuteville prefit and it is easily as accurate as any other gun I have had.

I have ran it at multiple club matches and 2 national level matches with zero hiccups. I did however round the profile of the ejector plunger to cure a minor feeding problem when using the Magpul Pmags.

I switched to the Impact from an AIAX and I can say that I like the Impact better. The bolt lift and close is easier and it will run basically dry without lube, which in my opinion is huge for shooting dusty matches. When shooting in dusty conditions the Impact feels the same at the beginning of the day and the end.....really smooth.

To make it the perfect action I would like to see a AW mag cut, and a quick change barrel system like an AX, and maybe interchangeable bolt heads.

Thanks for sharing!

If you prefer aw cut, you can request it and Impact will cut if for you. There might be a little wait time but they will do it. There are a few in the wild that people are running.
