Not trying to speak for Crow Mag but you can check out the home of the Bat action by going to http://www.batactions.com/ Price will vary depending on the amount of bells and whistles. Nice guys and great actions!

Deja Vu, must be a glitch in the Matrix.

Don't know why the double post happened.

Re: Looking for options for a barrel block bedding system.

The 2" X 10" BAT weighs 6# and has a 1 1/4" thread that is nearly 2" deep. A real pleasure to work with. I've built two .408 Chey-Tacs on them. Both had barrel blocks, a 10" and an 11".

Jay, Just wondering why one would choose to go with a 10" BAT and then use a barrel block as well?

Troy,

A 10" BAT and an 11" block because that is what the fellow wanted. It looks really nice in the HBR McMillan. A 1.45 X 36" barrel weighs about 16#, that is a long, droopy tube hanging on any action. The first one we built had a 1.45 X 42", .338-416 Rigby. Even with a 12" block, there is 30" hanging out of a Nesika action. It is in an HBR and one fellow named it "The Floorjack" because that is what it resembles.

Just trying to figure what the threshold for barrel weight would be for the BAT 8.5 and BAT 10 action. I have a 32" 1.250 tube that I want to hang on my 8.5" BAT.

Thanks Jay.

My 10" BAT has a 1.875" tapered to 1.5" at 30 inches. No problems.
