  1. I can get 2 complete ARs at my LGS for the price of one carbon barrel. A little steep I’d say… I don’t get the point of such an expensive barrel being advertised here.

    • Uhh, maybe some of the people here buy such things, along with $3000 ARs and fancy 1911s? Ya think maybe?

  2. Chris, because some of us like that kind of thing. There’s a LGS down in Crystal River I’ve done a little business with. They’re a Christensen Arms dealer. These are nice rifles. I intend to put one in a safe soon.

  3. I want a .338 Lapua…

    I stop in about once per week when I do my studio at Grinnell College. You think you’ve seen lefties? Snowflakes?

    • The Iowa lib arts colleges import ’em by the limo load – Grinnell, Pella, Decorah, Waverly, Mt Vernon. Apparently, there is no shortage of moron libs with piles of daddies money to throw away on a pseudo education. But generally no one is shooting at the little dears as would be the case in Chiraq, Philli., etc

  4. Also, unless I’m mistaken, the prices quoted were for barreled actions. That’s a custom rifle waiting to happen. To the owner’s specs. I like a custom rifle. Every rifleman should own one. Or ten.

  5. I have the .308 version of the Ridgeline in a MPR chassis that the LGS was selling on consignment a couple years back.

    The gas seal is perfect. A casing coming out of the chamber right after a shot is barely warm.

    Bench-rest groups average 5 inches at 600 yards. (That’s 0.8 MoA.)

    My only complaint is that the bolt’s ejector is on the weak side. I’ve had casings come off the extractor and stay inside the channel a few times. Not a big issue if you’re on the bench and recovering your fire-formed brass between shots anyway, but in a hunting situation where you may need a quick second shot, you want that casing OUT.

  6. The actions are OK. The carbon barrels are mediocre and wander shots after the first 3 until they cool off.

    • It’s fine for it’s purpose. If you need more than 3 shots with an ultralight hunting rifle, you’re doing it wrong. Either you are shooting beyond the distance of skills, or you’re taking out a sounder or prarie dog town and need a gun designed for sustained fire.

  7. It seems that in order to sell a rifle cartridge today, you have to name it either Creedmoor or PRC! First came 6.5 Creedmoor, then 6mm Creedmoor, then .25 Creedmoor and .22 Creedmoor. Same with PRC — 7mm PRC, 6.5 PRC, 6mm PRC, .300 PRC.

    OK, I think I’m going to rename and repackage the good old .30-30 Winchester as
    “7.6 Creedmoor” or “7.6 PRC.”
    It will sell millions!
