Hi Tom--does this mean the first dark earth are in August September? Or are you guys still going to ship some in July?After the first 30 red there will be 30 dark earth and then we will fulfill any other red and dark earth orders before moving on to other colors.
First deliveries to Delta will be August and all of their first production will be delivered by the end of September 2021. All first production to US distributors will also be September 2021.Farkkk…..bloody hope not! Reckon be 2022 though here in Oz!
Have seen a few videos of them exploding just after leaving the muzzle, puff of dust.
Very impressive, hows the ergo grip?View attachment 7663721
Picked up the PreProduction AT-X from our team AI Australia co-sponsor Delta Tactical yesterday. On loan for next weeks national PRS match.
We changed the red AT-X rear end out for the AXSR folder, simple changeover.
Swapped some parts off the AXSA, will be running my proof steel 6.5cm barrel only because there’s no time to run the factory barrel in and dope it out.
The chassis has a lot of great shapes and features, really looking forward to getting some rounds through it.
Is the AT-X worth the wait?
Is it better than a modified AT or AXSA?
Initial impressions, it appears to be exceptionally well thought out. It is absolutely a lot lower in the chassis than the others. The center of gravity is a lot more manageable, with this setup (unloaded, it is about 15mm forward of the barricade stop). With the NV bridge and weights it will be next level. Really looking forward to getting one.
They are probably the most suitable AR grip I think. Fairly bulky, fit the hand well (contoured, not just a vertical wall like a lot of other grips), grippy rubber, textured finish, finger grooves that aren't offensive.Very impressive, hows the ergo grip?
I'm likely to buy either the AXSR or ATX chassis... I prefer the aesthetics of the AXSR and it's folding quick adjust stock... However, it seems like the ATX has an advantage with the lower bore axis... Based on your experience with both rifles, how much of a difference does the lower bore axis make?View attachment 7665149
I fully appreciate and respect that a lot of you have had more to do with AI than I have, for perhaps many years. This is my quick insight, having now spent a fraction of a minute on both of these great new rifles.
I do not own the AT-X, it is on loan for the week for a match, thank you Delta.
The AXSR and the AT-X have a fair bit in common. They really are the next generation in the AI rifle family.
Built in arca rails, barricade stops, AR grips, interchangeable back ends that follow similar lines, comp style triggers.
- 2 position safety on the AXSR is nice, big paddle, very accessible. 3 position on ATX.
- AXSR grip angle is different, to get a better angle on the standard ergo grip, intending for this type to remain, not so much to swap it out for a more vertical grip.
- More contoured, cut in action on AXSR, saves a chunk of weight.
- Fully adjustable AXSR stock, very basic but also practical ATX stock.
- Fixed stock bracket vs folder, quick change over.
- Lower bore line in ATX.
- Built in top rail on AXSR as opposed to removable AXMC top rail.
- Flip paddle adjusters on AXSR stock, Allen key bolts on ATX.
When the 223 and WSM faced bolt bodies arrive for the AT-X it will really bridge a large part of the market. It will really be an outstanding rifle.
I have about 200 rounds on the AXSR in 300WM and 300PRC now, with the 26” carbon barrel it is lighter than the short action AX. The shape is great, the AR grip and arca front end is very comfortable to carry and shoot off bags / tripods / packs. Even being really critical, it is difficult to find anything to be upset about.
The AT-X is quite heavy, it’s a nice weight that absolutely helps dampen recoil. You will definitely be able to tune and adjust this with barrel contours / lengths etc. It is a very mild mannered rifle. Having only fired 20 rounds so far, haven’t really got an opinion on its capabilities however it does sit very well and is, like all AI products - SOLID.
If you are on the market for your next quality precision rifle, you will really struggle to go wrong with either systems.
