UKV - The Place for Precision Rifle Enthusiasts

Recommended Posts

Finished last friday.

The customer wanted a 6mmBr which was reasonably lightweight, for a variety of uses.

I started with a Bighorn Origin action, which is a cracking action in its own right, but brilliant for small cartridges, such as 6mmBr, .22Br, .224 Valkyrie etc etc....because it's controlled round feed.

This means the cartridge is actually picked up by the bolt head upon closing, rather than simply pushing it into the chamber. The same on extraction. Its held onto the bolt head by the extractor, and doesn't move, until it hits the manual ejector , in the rear of the action. Slow bolt manipulation, will just flip it out, fast use will throw it feet away.

The barrel is a Bartlien 1-8" twist, at 22" long, and Rem varmint profile.

Finished with an M18 x 1 muzzle thread and invisible cap, it also has an ASE SL5 moderator, all of which are finished in Cerakote Graphite black.

The stock was a brand new HS precision, which came off a Remington.

I fitted a Tier one floor plate, and it runs a 10 round AICS magazine, with my 6mmBr conversion internals.

The stock paint is Patriot brown, OD green, and Coyote tan, buried under Cerakote matt lacquer.

A very "pointable" little gun.

The 6mmBr is something that I'm really taking a fancy to. 

We only shoot out to 500 at the moment and I bet this would be ideal for the job.

The origin is an outstanding action and if I were to venture back i to conventionally stocked rifle it would be the action I buy.

You could always try ringing the man who started the thread and built the rifle in the first place. 😉
