Looking for an Ai..

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

I am looking for an Accuracy International rifle.

Having done a bit of reading and chatting to Graham at sporting services I am in the market for a either a AE (preferably a mk3), AW or AT - I’m not sure I can afford an AX or AW really.. but you never know.

Ideally in 308/7.62 but not essential

anything out there in good condition that could be considered?

thanks

Jamie

If you want an Ai then be prepared to spend

They don’t wear out, they are accurate and parts are Freely available if you do break aomething

2.5k is about average price for Ae and older aw

Ok, thank you.

I guess it’s spending on the right one, and not wanting to regret if a different spec model turns up.

ae mk3 in 308/7.62 with a 24” and brake, flat dark earth sides.

Or similar in a aw.

Stock sides can always be changed without too much issue as can the tubes etc.

But having seen some advertised at £1600 it makes spending 2.5k a bit tricky to swallow - however I appreciate supply and demand drives price.

suggest you decide on spec (folder/ non folder) action type (aw  or ae) then see what comes up at that spec

 

Stock sides, barrels can all be change in a few minutes

If you find a well used one the lug abutment collar can be changed making the bolt cycling  “as new” for little cost

 

An Ai will last you a lifetime, many people buy on whims and then let them go with few rounds through them, this is the rifle I’d choose,,,,,,,
