Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

Each Rifle will come with 4 cheekpieces that go up in 1/8" increments. We could not come up with an adjustable one we liked. I like the fixed version you see in the picuture. If a taller one is needed we made a 2 piece mould that will allow custom heights up to an 1.25".

Shawn,

I know you mentioned this rifle was going to be available in your +P. Have I missed the specs on that or is it still forthcoming?

Re: Finally the Defensive Edge LRKM is unveiled

shawn,

since the +p version still uses h-1000 and still uses the RUM case, it does not appear that you are breaking new ground in a proprietary sort of way. is there a reason you wont share the case geometry with the rest of the world? i have built a couple of EDGE chambered rifles and like them but like most others, i would like to get the most i can out of a standard magnum bolt face. what is the secret?

The biggest complaint I have had with LR rifles is the length for any number of reason, cases, portability, platform etc. I had an idea floating around in my head and started work developing it a few years ago. This is the prototype with a Rem 700 action, the finished version will be available on a BAT single shot action only. They will initally be available in 338 Edge (of course), 338 Lapua Mag and 338 Edge +P (more on that later). OAL is only 43" !!!!! Weight will be right around 15 lbs with a NF 5.5-22 NXS and bipod. 85% of the rifles weight is behind the bipod, that makes it ride a bag better than any conventional rifle you ever shot (4.8 lbs bag pressure). Accuracy is outstanding and it is bomb proof. LOP is spacer adjustable, cheekpiece are supplied in 1/8 increments for a total of 1/2" adjustment. The green OD color or Coyote tan will be hard anodized and the black will be Cerakote. We will be ready to start building these very soon, it has been a long but worth while project as it turned out better than expected in the area of performance. Also as you would expect form me it will be availble in both RH and LH unlike most other cool stuff.

PS - I'll send a free copy of Send It volume 2 to the first person to post the correct long version name that LRKM stands for.
