I can’t for the life of me figure out how the Origin is sooo much cheaper. If price were the same, I would choose the TL3 for the straighter bolt handle.

What does the Origin not do that the TL3 or SR3 does? Maybe AW mag use?

TL3:
- 416 stainless (optional DLC)
- integral recoil lug
- choice of rail cant
- Choice of Tang
- optional AW mag cut (SA only), single shot, AICS (feed ramps determined by selection)

Origin:
- nitride chromemoly Receiver
- pinned 20moa rail only
- pinned recoil lug
- trim tang only
- Remington style feed ramps
- Swept bolt

is the tl3/sr3 that much better then the origin, I would say not but I went tl3 cause I know purchasing the origin I’d be unsatisfied wondering what if the tl3 is better, why didn’t I just spend the extra little bit and it would eat me up. Made the mistake once and won’t do it again.

I’m not sure I understand the choice of tang.....aren’t I always going to want trim to match the 700 pattern stocks?

Same for the bolt handle.....Do bolt bolt handles fit the cut out ok?
