Welll....the email said that they were getting quotes to have parts made, so it will still be a while!
You’ll need to take that plug off to be sure it will screw in. If you can’t tell, take the skins off. If you see a spot to screw it in, then that’s all there is to it.I bought a monopod. Does it just screw in is there something special I need to know about installing it?
Finally finished my powder testing on my new DT A1 7LRM. Now time to move on to seating depth.
Greg at Primal Rights put this together.
TS Customs 22” 1-8 tw
71g H1000, 180 Berger Hybrids seated 10 thou off the lands
Recoil is very manageable especially prone off bipod.
Love this rifle, wish I had bought one much sooner.
Congrats on an awesome setup! I still have that same new gun excitement when I take mine out of the safe to go shooting. Have it even more when I come back from overseas, specially when coming from a communist country.Just got my chasis in, just need the barrel to come from SAC and I'm gtg. So stoked
Welcome! Hopefully you enjoy it as much as the rest of us have. My original Covert setup was also topped with a gen2 razor. Great scope for the money. You’ll be a few barrels in before you even realize it hahaJust got my chasis in, just need the barrel to come from SAC and I'm gtg. So stoked
I cant wait to be able to finally take her out and run her through. I've been wanting one ever since they came out. They didn't always have one for the south paw guys. I still have plenty of time to get behind her until rifle season for deer opens. I want to get the 300wm barrel kit as well but I probably won't do that until I actually get pulled for an Elk tag.Welcome! Hopefully you enjoy it as much as the rest of us have.

I'm super excited to have SAC make barrels for me. I would've bought the .223 conversion as well, but I have a .223 ackley barrel being made for my nucleus action.You will love the SAC barrel.
Don't forget the 223 conversion. Groundhogs hate it
I had a semi for 6 weeks straight until my barrels finally arrived. You hand load your own ammo?Well.....I ordered my SRS-A1 chassis earlier today. I ordered a variety of accessories as well. .308 bolt, .338 bolt, mags, etc. I've contacted SAC to have them make 2 barrels for me. I haven't been this excited about a firearm in quite awhile.
That awesome! We are like twins almost besides mine being south paw. They don't have a .223 kit for us leftys yet sadly but its okay since I have other rifles for little creatures like that.
I do load my own ammo. I’m actually going to be running 300 Norma, hence the .338 bolt. My initial plan is to run the Hornady 220 eld-x bullets. As for powder, not sure yet.I had a semi for 6 weeks straight until my barrels finally arrived. You hand load your own ammo?
If so; What do you have planned for projectiles and powder for the 338 barrel?
I don't think ten pounds either way is going to hurt anything.Quick question guys, so I bought the wrench from desert tech but its rated at 80lbs. In the manual it says that the SRS should be at 70lbs. The manual even says you would void the warranty if you over torque the rifle. Why would they sell a wrench that is rated 80lbs when you need a 70lbs one for the srs rifle?
They haven't updated the book but they standardized to 80in/lbs because that's what the HTI is using so that they only have to sell 1 torque wrench for both rifles. You're fine.Quick question guys, so I bought the wrench from desert tech but its rated at 80lbs. In the manual it says that the SRS should be at 70lbs.

Covert has the correct answer. Mine shipped with a manual stating 70 in/lbs but their website has the updated manual at 80 in/lbs for barrel retention screws.Thanks for the fast response guys, thats why I love this forum
I'm having two barrels made by SAC and echo your comments. My experience has been great with them. Seem like really good people. Even though I don't need another .223 in any kind of platform I'm seriously considering the SAC .223 conversion. Would be a super fun setup.Hey guys, I am new to the SRS platform and most everything about it. Initially I have been getting into LR shooting with a R700 (.308) and a Seekins SP10 (6.5). My boss has a SRS that I have been able to play around with, and I recently took the plunge and purchased the SRSA1 in 6.5 and .300 Win. I am picking up the rifle next week from SAC and I am very excited to get my hands on the rifle. I had them make the barrels for me and get practically everything together for my rifle. Really great experience so far with them, and having them piece together my whole build. Thanks to everyone on this thread, I have searched through dozens of pages to get more of a sense of the rifle. Once I have it in my hands I will make sure to share pictures!
I ordered a .223 heavy contour with straight fluting in January and it took about 5 weeks to my door. Fluting usually adds around 1 week to the delivery from what I was told.How long is the turnaround for SAC the do a barrel? I'm still considering a .223 but they don't make one for us South paw guys yet. I'll definitely get a 300 as soon as I get pulled for an elk tag
