Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Thank you Broz you are a real gentleman . Your right it is quite interesting . A Bull Pup design .
I particularly like the way the forend tube connects with the action in the support of the lower stock rail . That would be more rigid than some others I have seen .
I am only assuming that the forend tube and the lower are 'Two Pieces " .
I reckon they would have to be two pieces .
Nice work , very nice indeed.
I watched the vid and it was awesome shooting but they did have a beautiful calm day to assist .
Still fantastic accuracy for a light weapon with the potential to be even more compact .
The only thing I did not like was the cut away from the actual shot discharging . I like to see that part so I can make up my own mind on how well the gun actually handled under recoil.
Still very impressive . Thanks .

Well I have shot that one at 2550 yards and then ordered my own. Maybe that will tell you more about how well it handled under recoil. I am very anxious to get mine and start bonding with it.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Your a lucky man Broz , I could not afford a gun like that .
When you get it I would be real interested in seeing some internal photos if that's possible. Like don't pull it apart on my account if you don't want to.
I have been toying with the idea of a compact and light bull pup design for a bike gun to hunt hogs and to keep it nice and short but still have a decent barrel length. I would most likely make the cheek rest and butt pad adjustable but it's the trigger actuating system that would have me stumped .
How much is it setting you back?

Shawn-

Are people going to be able to shoot the regular Edge round in a +P chamber with any kind of accuracy? Or is it really a one or the other proposition?
I was thinking some kind of a set up where you use the regular edge in your magazine when doing some spot and stalk and then when you get set up to go, go the +P for your long range shots?

Thanks,

Travis

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

As far as I can work out , the +P is not a chamber modification other than a longer throat to allow extra powder to be burned .
So my understanding is that you will be able to fire all 338 Edge rounds in it.
This is the developers thread that explains it :--
338 Edge + P now available from Defensive Edge

If it were me buying one I think I would like a throat depth matched to a certain LR bullet and stick with that but I guess they are going for max velocity to stay super sonic as far out as possible . Seems to be working .

Did you miss post # 19 in that thread?
