Well, this year was supposed to be the year i transitioned from a ”Build to order” manufacturer to a “Sell out of inventory“ manufacturer. That transition obviously has not fully taken place thanks to the year we have all had.

however, i have been able to build a few rifles this year and sell them as in stock rifle. This is the latest:
CE66FB2C-5C6F-4499-A9A4-C70C330833AA.jpeg

Again, this is a brand new rifle, just finished last night, ready for shipping. Here are the specs:

Allen Precision Raptor LRSS
20 moa pinned rail
30” bartlein custom LRSS contour, 9” twist, 5r barrel
custom LRSS dual flute pattern
medium APS Painkiller muzzle brake
Jewell trigger set at 1 lb. (1-4 lb adjustment range)
Accurate Mag DSSF 5 round detachable mag system
McMillan A5 tactical stock, flat black finish, 13.75” lop, thumbwheel adjustable CP
pillar bedded
chambered in my 338 Allen Xpress (can safely shoot factory 338 lapua in a pinch)

the 338 Allen Xpress is a modern version of the 338 lapua Improved which provides better extraction performance at max pressure loads. Typically you will see 3000-3100 fps out of my Raptor LRSS rifles with the 300 gr. Berger OTM or EH.

Barrel life is nearly identical to the 338 Lapua so plenty of barrel life.

bare rifle weight is around 13 lbs. this is not a packing rifle. Its designed for use in the 800-1500 yard ranges with ease and have tested them out to 2500 yards with great results. The Raptor LRSS will run with rifles that weigh Twice as much.

as with all my rifles, this rifle will come with custom 338 AX loading die set, 100 fully formed peterson brand brass, full function tested, full load development for one bullet of choice, accuracy tested at a minimum of 1000 yards and load data from accuracy test provided with rifle. All shipping and insurance costs are also included.

total package price: $5975

turn key option is also available for this rifle, would just need to determine what optical package was wanted. Turn Key option includes harris swivel base bipod 9-13” model with leg notches and pod lock conversion installed, rifle scope of customers choice if it meets my durability standards, four nightforce ultrlight tactical rings, mounting, squaring scope, additional load velocity testing, drop chart development out to 1000 yards and drop chart validation. Rifle zeroed at customers desired range.

cerakote color finish options are also available.

this is a beast of a rifle, long barrel life, extreme ballistic performance, very soft recoiling rifle, hard to believe really. Could have it before Christmas easily. This will be the last new, in stock APS rifle sold in 2020. As always, component prices will likely increase at the turn of the year also so likely best price on a New in case APS Raptor LRSS rifle.

first come first serve!! Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!!

As with all my in stock new rifles for sale, we can also work out payment plans as well. I understand these are expensive rifles and coming up with that cash all at once can be a challenge. Generally i would do a 50-50 payment plan if someone wanted but there are also other options we could discuss as well.

Was able to take this rifle out today and do load development and accuracy testing to prove the rifle. Also got some better pictures.

this picture shows my unique Raptor receiver and unique Raptor LRSS barrel contour. It shows the extra long receiver tenon length which offers much more support to long heavy barrels. The longer receiver also houses the extremely strong bolt head and added steel supporting the lower bolt lug which is the weak point of any repeating bolt action.

Rifle shot extremely well, all of these Raptor LRSS rifles are a dream to shoot. Three powders broke well over 3000 fps with the berger 300 gr Elite hunter and Ramshot Magnum and RL33 both hit a legit 3100 fps. Ramshot Magnum actually hit 3125 fps!!

Tested at 1045 yards the rifle easily and consistently hit 1/2 moa sized targets even in a 10-12 mph variable wind and impacts were EASY to spot.

rifles ready to go, load data ready, 100 new brass ready. Could have it by Christmas guys!!
