Figures. Shortly after Chris commissioned Alamo Precision Rifles to build him the gorgeous tack-driver of a custom bolt gun he reviewed here, they go and release a brand new, Gen2 version of the APR action. Updates and improvements manage to be minor, yet dramatic at the same time. Savage pre-fit barrel compatibility, wire EDM raceways, and…well…here’s Alamo Precision’s press release with all of the details direct from the horse’s mouth:
ALAMO PRECISION RIFLES RELEASE THE APR G2 ACTION
For Immediate Release – Hurst, TX – Alamo Precision Rifles, Leader in affordable high-quality custom precision rifles announces the release of their APR G2 action. Integrating several features previously reserved for high end custom actions, the APR Gen II is an affordable feature rich solution for any custom rifle build.
The APR G2 is released shortly after the successful release of the original APR action as a result of further collaboration between Alamo Precision Rifles and Thompson Leh.
When asked why they are launching another version so soon after the flagship model was introduced, Robert Waggoner, owner Alamo Precision Rifles said the following: “Because the shooting community spoke, and we listened. The original APR action came about as an attempt to create a higher quality, yet cost effective alternative to a trued factory action. It was really intended to fill a specific niche in our hunting build lineup, which it does very well. However, we immediately began getting requests for a version geared more towards the long range/tactical and DIY market. We were completely on board with the idea, as this category represents a large part of our core business. We combined a list of features and changes that would make it excel in this role and worked closely with Thompson Leh to get them implemented. We are excited with the results and very pleased that we were able to keep the costs down to a level that makes this version every bit the value that the original APR action represents.”
