The big savings is in the carbon fiber bolt handle :) I can go weigh a couple different styles of muzzle brakes if that helps you. Let me know
Carbon fiber bolt handle, now thats thinking outside the box.
How would you attach it ? Cut existing handle as close to bolt body and attach with threaded insert?

Hmm wonder if anybody has or is doing something on a 700 style action.
Curious to the weight difference.

We really need someone to make carbon mag boxes. I tried to get one of the seeking for my last lightweight build but they won’t sell them.

I haven’t done any work with carbon fiber stuff but I’m probably going to have to look into it. My first project was going to be a carbon fiber bottom metal floor plate

Only problem i could see is being able to adjust the feed lips
