How many do you have for sale? Cause that number just went down by one! I got a 4th of July special and it was so great I had to get another one just for the chassis. When are those rear bag rider weights coming out?

@karagias - Does this mean ARC will start stocking replacement barrels/prefits for Nucleus?

Any plans to offer these in 6 Creed or 6GT in the near future?

I'll order 6mm CM and 6 GT barrels tomorrow. You can also re-barrel. 6.5 remains incredibly popular which is why we started with that. We have plenty of pre-fit 6.5 CM 7.5 twist barrels in stock that work with all three of our actions. We'll get them on the website so you can order barrels soon.

Good luck finding more rifle for the money.

Hope you're going to have these through early next year. Been wanting one since I saw it on your website a month or so ago.

20 ounce steel bag riders are at salt-bath nitride now. They'll be back in a few days so feel free to order. We decided to machine M-LOK slots into the bag rider so that you can increase weight by adding two 4 ounce M-LOK weights. Total aft end weight is 28 ounces. Testing on a fully loaded rifles put the center of mass just in front of the mag well, which ought to be about right.

That's great! I bought one of your 4th of July rifles in 6.5. I'll be looking for a 6GT when I need to re barrel.

Pick up the 16lb firing pin spring when ordering this and at least give it a try....much lighter bolt lift.

Is there any provision for adjusting the spirit level in the chassis to match it to the reticle (after ensuring the the reticle is plumb)?

Low numbers of production class shooters is irrelevant, it's still going to be an outstanding gun especially for 2500. Use it in any other division, why not?
We want to make and sell as many of these as we can but your point has been discussed internally among us at ARC when we were trying to decide weather or not to do this at all. This rifle offers at least as much as any bolt action rifle offered at any price, except for one built on our Archimedes action. In fact, it likely offers more, and will either hang with or out run the open class guns. The idea is to offer something that shooters may perceive as an advantage and to do so at a fair price.

Just such a great price its hard to pass up, I really want another Xylo chassis and I'm leaning towards just getting the whole package rather than just another xylo. Good problems to have I suppose.

These guys are quick!
Shipping was only like $11
They already had my FFL from last time and got it to UPS in less then 24hrs from the time I placed my online order. Not only are they on top of the shipping game, their rifles are awesome and shoot great. So great I bought another setup just cause.
I'd buy this over the MPA setup for production any day and twice on Sunday.

If you are looking at a Bergara setup or something similar you would be foolish to not just get this package.

i ordered my steel bag rider back at shot - cant wait.
Sorry it took a while to get around to the steel bag rider. There are only two of us here that develop the manufacturing processes and most to the milling has been up to me lately. That said, the steel bar rider is quite nice especially with the ability to an additional 8 ounces in 4 ounce increments.

So, I didn't see this anywhere - what kind of accuracy are you guys getting with factory (presumably Hornady match) ammo and handloads?

Also, any chance you are eventually going to offer a LH version?

Looked at the website again, and it appears they offer a left hand action and a left hand chassis, so I suppose you could contact them and get them to put together a LH rifle. Is this correct?

I think we might have everything in stock for a left handed rifle. Give us a call tomorrow and we'll get you sorted out. Thanks.

Range report is forthcoming but it's going to have to be hand-loads. Factory 6.5 CM is hard to get at the moment, which is really annoying.

For those who haven’t handled the Xylo chassis, there are too many features to go over in just one post. ARC has done an amazing job with the design. If you want to know alL the finer details they are outlined on ARC’s website.

I think it’s important to mention how this chassis design crosses the normal boundaries for rifle chassis. the aft end of the chassis allows for a more traditional grip similar to a rifle stock. It manages to do this while maintaining all the industry standards for features while adding a few notable additions.

1. fully constrained magazine well/latch. This makes for a magazine that is static while locked, preventing any feeding issues influenced by the shooter.
2. Inclined wedge for recoil lug preventing any axial motion of the receiver along the chassis.
3. As mentioned above, stock like Grip, allowing for more traditional, ergonomic hand position. Also, published dimensions for users and/or companies to make customized grips.
4. True quick adjust rack and pinion cheek piece.
5. Quick adjust with user definable end point LOP adjustment.
6. Monolithic chassis from forend to behind grip.

The production rifle offered by ARC represents a true competition ready rifle. This in my eyes will leave nothing to be desired for a complete rifle even under the open class category. In my opinion, the value offered is unparalleled.

Oh please, our customer service is far from great but it has gotten better over the past year. The late steel bag rider is my fault. I need a bit of pressure to get motivated and wasn't feeling it for the steel bag rider.

Ted
They have always taken care of me just fine. You should try some of the others in the industry :)
