    Custom Actions Must Haves vs Nice to Haves

    Chad with LRI nailed it, I was going to write a similar post, but he beat me to it. The only "needs" is that it works as designed, and on command (reliability in any conditions). Everything else is merely a preference. I have a few different actions from different manufacturers. Some are push...

    The departure from "just another action company" ARC's new rifle:

    I agree. It's an engineering company more so then a marketing company. His products have a lot of great innovations in them, and everything has a functional purpose. I absolutely love my Mausingfield and M10 rings. Ted is a really sharp guy that comes up with some clever stuff. It's the exact...

    Accuracy International AT - Worth It?

    AI's are excellent rifles and platforms. If the ergonomics fit you, it's hard to go wrong with an AI.

    The departure from "just another action company" ARC's new rifle:

    I posted this in the other ARC thread, but think it better suits the conversation here: Thanks for sharing! Always enjoy Ted's videos, he's pretty unrefined and unpolished, but you get glimpses into his creative genius, which as a fellow engineer I always appreciate. The video showed off some...

    Wasn’t there a mil bio lab near the outbreak spot of Coronavirus in China?

    The Umbrella Corp references are from Resident evil, they are a fictional corporation that had a pharmaceutical branch that created virus for biological warfare. Their symbol is the red and white umbrella you see pictured in the post I quoted. Just seems really weird that a level 4 pathology...

    American Rifle Company New Archimedes Action, New Xylo Chassis, and major Mausingfield revision

    Thanks for sharing! Always enjoy Ted's videos, he's pretty unrefined and unpolished, but you get glimpses into his creative genius, which as a fellow engineer I always appreciate. The video showed off some features that previously I was unaware of, it's obviously a very well thought out...

    Price’s Law: Why Only A Few People Generate Half Of The Results

    In the industry that I work in, Oil & Gas, confidence (overconfidence) and bullshit gets some people way further then their actual skillset. I work in engineering and operations group, so unlike sales, bullshit and overconfidence can be a very dangerous thing, and left unchecked can end lives...

    (New) Ultimatum DeFacto action (Tikka T3) Barreled action+trigger deal

    For $1000 they are going to sell a ton of these. Curious to hear how these work. IBI got off to a rough start with their barrel making, but supposedly those issues have since been addressed. My understanding is that they are using a properietary tennon spec, I believe they missed an...

    Action choice for prs

    If the OP really wants 60° bolt throw, quick change barrels and AW mags, then I agree that this option really has no rivals.

    Mack Bro’s SS Evo

    At that price point they should do very well, as long as there's no fatal flaws. If it's a good performing action, then it looks like it could be a very solid base to build a more budget orientated rifle.

    Action choice for prs

    If you want 60° bolt throw and quick change features, then I would be more compelled to pick the Terminus over Curtis. I personally have a stronger preference for 90° bolt throws and shouldered and torqued barrels, so I would personally take a Lone Peak Fuzion first, then an Impact over the...

    Price’s Law: Why Only A Few People Generate Half Of The Results

    And while 20% of the people produce 80% of the results, companies don't realize, understand and/or care about the demotivators that will cause people to leave. The top 20% are the first to get demotivated with any bullshit, and are the first to leave. I really wish managers had a better...

    After army sniper school..

    For a minute I thought you meant Vancouver BC, until I looked up it was the WA one. I was thinking "why the fuck would anyone start up anything to do with shooting around that shithole?", but wrong Vancouver :LOL:

    traditional look/feel chassis

    I feel you, my precision rifle "honey pot" has become a lot more empty since getting married and buying a house. Thankfully I bought all my expensive toys prior to those events, I have enough precision rifle equipment to hold me over for a while. I just need to resist the urge of trying new...

    traditional look/feel chassis

    It really is in a league of it's own. In my mind, it's the best chassis for precision rifle to have been made, and it's a combination of the quality, design, comfort and features. CS was amazing too, when they were still in business. There's other great chassis' out there, but none that rival...

    traditional look/feel chassis

    I own both a KRG Bravo and a JAE-700, no experience with the Cadex though. They are both in different classes, but both the top of their respective classes, IMO. The KRG is an awesome budget chassis', and punches way above it's weight class. The ergonomics are great, and there's a lot of...
