I have a new (just finished this week) Defiance long action. I ordered this for a lightweight build (was going to be a 280 AI), but in the meantime I purchased a lightweight 280 AI. Go figureÖ.
This was specíd with weight in mind. Therefore it has the sheep/port/facet, deep fluted bolt, aluminum Defiance picatinny and the aluminum bolt knob. It is also cut for BDM metal.
Here is the build list; the final price was $1400 from Defiance
