Any news on the Magnum bolt ?
It doesn't look like anyone actually has a solid date for getting the AT-X out yet. Seems like people are getting different answers from different places...

I would assume the chassis accessories world be next to show

Might as well get comfortable...

But maybe I'm just a pessimist...

Will the AT X have the same button on the bolt shroud that has to be depressed as the bolt moves forward when closing the bolt?
Similar to the 98 Mauser.

    I believe it's to lock the shroud to the bolt. You press it in to spin the shroud and firing pin out of the bolt body.

    Next week I will have an entire video on the triggers, Scott breaks it down, talks about the failure, talks about the improvements in coatings and springs, and you’ll see they addressed it all.

    Did I miss this video, or has it not been posted yet? I’m really interested to hear about the triggers.

    I don’t know why any of you are expecting anything anytime soon. You’ll get your ATX in 2022, magnum bolt in 2025, and 223 bolt in 2030.

    The Brits don’t even have their MKIII’s yet...

    But, but, but, they said this was different, they know they weren't focused on a commercial market! 🤪

    The April date for delivery of the first production AT-X rifles was incorrect and Q2/2021 should have been stated.
    The chassis components, in the main, are being machined in the USA. Barreled actions are from the UK. Triggers are from the USA.
    The pandemic has impacted deliveries from the UK by perhaps one or two weeks but in the main it is not a reason for delay. The production of the AT-X is on schedule and if anything I would apologize for someone mentioning a delivery date of April.
    This is a brand new production activity in the USA and new programs had to be written and proven out. A new machine also had to be procured and that is in the process of prove out right now.
    We are in the process of cutting metal for the first production chassis components in the USA and during the next couple of weeks I will be able to give you a positive date for first delivery. It will not be April and probably not May but I am expecting first deliveries to our distributors in June and then there will be a steady flow from there.
    We are in the process of testing the AICS and then will be making a first run of marketing samples, just like we did with the rifles.
    We will be officially releasing the AT-X rifle and AICS to the UK and other parts of the world at Bisley, in the UK, on May 14, 2021 and delivery information will be presented there.
