Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Sweet...enough said. Another idea along the lighter weight line would be something like a 284 win in an abs carbon 26" barrel. Use a little lighter weight scope like a leupold or zeiss and its the perfect mountian setup. I don't got $4800 but I do got an idea. Or a 338 norma in a 26" would be cool too. Just an idea. Reminds me of a tube gun.

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Shawn,

I have a couple more questions for you:

1. How heavy is the barrel? Is it a 5.5 sporter or a #6?
2. What brand of barrel are you using?
3. Does it have a jewel trigger in it?
4. Because of the design, would it be feasible to have a 32" barrel?

Thanks!

Jeff,


We are using Hart 5.5 conture barrels with a long shank fluted. I have talked to them about 32" barrels, that is up in the air right now. 32" with a +P would go 3000 fps without too much trouble still using H1000.

Way to think outside the box a little Shawn! Would certainly be easier to pack that around when riding one's dirt bike

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Just sent my check in the mail for one of these.

1. Shawn, you didn't mention it but I assume that there will be either a 20 MOA or 40 MOA rail that is part of the BAT Action?
2. I've seen pictures with some guns having two sets of NF Rings on the scopes. Is this a requirement due to the heavy recoil or is one set of rings sufficient?

Jeff
