ICON Update

They are building rifles and not far from shipping their first batch. Initial rifles have to go into sales and marketing demands - salesmen need samples to show their clients, right. So do writers need rifles to shoot and photograph for articles. Plus no doubt some shooting show&tells, hunts etc.

They are getting VERY close, learned some stuff that will blow you guys away, will share it as soon as I can. Things are getting more better all the time...

Will keep you all informed.

Did you happen to find out what calibers they will produce? I recall reading that they won't be making the 22-250 or 243 version, and will instead focus on the 308 and 30TC.

MSU Marksman,
I believe you are correct, right now the production is .308 Win. and then .30 TC. No info yet on when the smaller calibers will be rolling. They are ramping-up production, have some excellent improvements to the original design. I have not seen the production piece yet but they have come-up with a new detachable magazine and trigger guard assembly. Plus they took some weight off the action so the rifles are a bit lighter. Big news is accuracy, they are shooting very well. There are some interesting new developments, will share info when the time is appropriate.

I had the good fortune to have the opportunity to write a barrel break-in and maintenance instruction sheet that will go with each rifle.

The suggest list is about 900 dollars, just what they will sell for I am not sure. As for long actions, lefties and other innovations I am confident they will give us hunters what we want!!! I believe they have done wonders with getting the rifle into production as quickly as they have. No doubt there are R&D folks with lots of great ideas to make the ICON even more popular. Be patient, you will be happy.
