  1. So the 16″ barrel is a gimmick to allow them to advertise a lower weight? Cause who is really going to spend that kind of coin on a bolt action precision rifle with a 16″ barrel?

  2. I wonder how much the price would be dropped if they ditched the carbon fiber barrel?

    $1800 for a boutique precision rifle isn’t that bad (guessing at street price), but I’d happily trade a pound or so of weight (it won’t save that much) for a slightly lower price.

  3. Would love a side-by-side comparison of this rifle and Q’s “The Fix” rifle. Both of them are ultra-light modern takes on the bolt-action.

  4. I shot one of their carbon fiber barrels years ago, I’m a wood and steel guy, the carbon fiber pissed me off, shot to good, can’t, gotta be wood and steal. Damn technology

  5. Considering that this is a lightweight Ruger Precision Rifle on steroids 2k isn’t bad at all. Given their company name and all the carbon fiber the price could’t been much worse. This is completely acceptable for a precision rifle.

  6. am I the only person that wishes that someone other than savage would make one of these fairly affordable chassis rifles in long action calibers.
