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!!!

Wow great looking action!!! Congratulations Kirby but there is a huge design flaw…. IT’S NOT LEFT-HANDED!!!! Grins… Left out in the cold again.

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.
