Full disclosure: TTAG’s Chris Heuss and I run Black Collar Arms. But I swear we would have published this press release anyway. (ED: We would have.)
At any rate, our chassis are super-nice and you should probably own one! And, now, we’re doing full guns, too. For more info on those, my own press release follows:

Austin, TX (September 17, 2019) — Earlier this year Black Collar Arms brought AR-like modularity and build-it-at-home fun to the bolt action market with our extremely lightweight (13.6 ounces!) and minimalist Pork Sword Chassis and with our Build Kits.

Why a Bolt Action Pistol?
- Handy size and lighter weight without the expense, complication, or restrictions of a short barreled rifle (SBR)
- Very quiet for the shooter when suppressed compared to a semi-auto
- Hunting-related restrictions on loaded rifles in vehicles do not apply to handguns
- Enjoy additional and/or extended hunting season dates in some states
- Just as accurate as a bolt action rifle. In many cases improved barrel stiffness can increase accuracy and reduce head-related point of impact shift. 185 grain Federal Gold Medal Berger Juggernaut .308 stays supersonic to about 930 yards from a 10.0-inch barrel (muzzle velocity about 2,175 fps).
- Simplified ownership and legality in restrictive states and localities compared to semi-auto rifles or handguns
- It’s freaking cool!
- It’s freaking fun! No joke, these are so incredibly fun to shoot. Pull your Pork Sword Pistol out of your backpack, unfold that SB Tactical FS1913 brace, plop down on the bipod, and make accurate hits to 800 yards from a 10.5-inch pistol? Yes, please.

Note: Your Pork Sword Pistol is a handgun / pistol (not a rifle / long gun) and will transfer as such. Make sure you know your state’s laws regarding manual action handguns, magazine capacity restrictions, approved firearm rosters, etc. before ordering. Must be 21+ to purchase.
