Any updates when the custom chassis with be ready?
Thank you for the update. Hope you make a swift and full recovery.Hey guys. Just want to give an update as life got the best of me the past couple weeks. I just got out of the hospital Wednesday and got in here to answer emails today. On the 24th I went to the ER with covid which I found out had hit septic shock and I was about to die, my body was shutting down. I spent 10 days in ICU and few more in the hospital. I am home now and weak but am slowly getting back in the shop, today being day one. My guys done a great job of keeping work going while I was out but there things that are all on me to get out for shipping the rifle. This coming week some of the barreled actions will start shipping followed by standard rifles, then integrals. We will be verifying orders as we build them and arranging shipping. Thank you all for patience and understanding, I happy and thankful to be alive right now and will be pushing to get orders out the door. Joe
Yes, they will fit any R700sa chassis that accepts AICS mags.Would this fit in a MDT LSS chasis??
Yeah, but with the suppressed barrel and a nice scope, you can be into the entire set up for $3000 - $4000. That's not bad for a nice plinking rifle. Imagine the money you can save on ammo.900 is just for the action. The cheapest gun is 1475.

Memberberries: One of my hobbies is being a smart-ass. But I can imagine it would be fun. To be honest a bolt action 9mm is a novel idea to me. With the political climate that we have today, it might be the way to go. I know I've departed from ar15s to bolt guns the last few years. I never was a mag dump kind of guy (I'm too cheap). So I can see the appeal of about anything in a bolt action. The above option is a bit rich for my budget. I know, go be poor somewhere else.
I like the idea of a 9mm bolt gun. I however think it is oversized on a 700 platform. I am working on a Remington 582 9mm conversion that I believe is a much more appropriate sized action.
The Marshalprecision rifle looks nice. Anxious to get the Curtis, but I am liking my smaller CZ actions and wish I had time to make one
into a 9mm. Even a single shot would be fine.
Any idea on the price?We have these being produced here in NZ but so far numbers are small
I have a barrel ordered. TC barrels aren't cheap either. Barrel and fore end were over $800. If I didn't have so much 9mmYou could always get a 9mm contender barrel. A 16" contender with a stock is shorter overall than you'd think
Australian bushy tailed possum:Possums eat ticks. By the lb. Its true. Look it up
What barrel works with this method? I need a project.I have done these before, it's actually pretty easy. Open a 556 bolt face up to .39", no gas system and a side charging upper and you have a handy hand cycling AR9.
Any updates? Did your rifle ship?Just received notification from Curtis Tactical that my Barreled Action will go out next week!!! Got all the peripherals ready and will post pics once I have it all together.
This would be intriguing to have in an 8” barrel with a PDW type brace chassis. This being said (outside of ammo price) I might prefer to have a 300 blackout.
Cuddos to the manufacturer, these looks fantastic!
I was thinking similar and went with a 12" overall integrally suppressed, hopefully it will be shipping soon. My plan is to put it in one of the JTAC screech Owl 700 chassis as an SBR/Suppressed two stamper.This would be intriguing to have in an 8” barrel with a PDW type brace chassis.

Only concern is JTAC tells me that the forearm will accommodate a 1.25” diameter “barrel” and Cutis tells me the tube is 1.2” OD. I can‘t find any pics of the chassis forearm but I’m assuming it‘s taller than it is wide, so hopefully I’ll still be able to mount a bipod on the bottom of the rail.That’s the exact chassis I was thinking of, just couldn’t remember the company. That should be a sweet setup man!
Even if you reload, .45 / 230 and 9mm / 147 are in totally different ball parks for price. Additionally, .45 ACP doesn't suppress as well, given the additional volumes of gas. Frankly, I've been looking for years for a 9mm bolt gun, and have been hoping Ruger would make one, or a mag fed lever gun. The Armscor conversions look great, but you are very limited in terms of stocks/inlets. The Destroyer clones built off the Mausers are similarly spendy, without a great reputation for performance. Rhineland offers the cheapest solution, but it still ins't turnkey. Fingers crossed Curtis has opened up a new market with a quality product (that should also end up available in 10mm, .45, etc.)
Wanted to give an update since it's been a while. Had to deal with COVID over the last few weeks so I've been slow to respond.
I received the barreled action and mag block. My initial observations were that the workmanship is fantastic. No machining marks or flaws in the finish that I could detect. The bolt movement is what I expected for a brand new rifle. I want to work the bolt and break it in first before giving any type of review in that area.
The bolt release is longer than a typical. It's about twice the length of my Vudoo or Surgeon releases, but I was able to cleanly open up the inlet in my Manners T4A to accommodate it without issue.
The mag block fits tightly into the magwell of the Manners mini chassis. There's no movement at all with the mag block once it's inserted. The spring tension on the Glock mag release built into the mag block is very light but not so much that you worry about the mag falling out.
It will be a while before I test fire the firearm for groups, but will post as soon as that's done. In the mean time, I wanted to share the initial impressions.
