Bill,

I have not weighed it yet.....

I would guess about 3 oz more then a Rem 700 LA. Maybe 4. I will weigh it when I get over to the shop and let you know. Cold has heck here this morning, 8 degrees!!! Got to let the shop warm up before I can start working. The lathe does not appreciate cold starts!!! AND SHE TELLS ME SO!!!

    Right now just trying to get the RH receiver finalized and on the market. No plans for a left hand receiver but that is not to say it will not happen, just that I have not looked that far ahead yet.

    Hi Kirby,
    I love the whole premise of the action. Glad to see it offered in a single shot.

    Thanks
    Shawn

    I'll postpone my disappointment

    Kirby

    Just wanted to say your new receiver looks great. It appears you truly put a lot of thought into the design. GREAT JOB!!!!!!! Sorry I didn't say that in my first post.

    I understand the business aspects of getting a new product off the ground and acknowledge you for taking on such a major endeavor.

    Finally, please put my name at the top of the list for the southpaw version


    Thanks You, for all that you do for all of us.
