For those that use factory .308 ammo, does the AT-X have a brand or type it seems to like the best?

    Here are the steel ones. I have six and like them a lot. No affiliation
    Thanks, but I’m looking for the 120mm (longer) steel weight. If you look at the pic that @hic28 posted, you’ll see the first weight closest to the magwell is longer than the others. I already have the ones you posted.

    Okay am I being a little bitch? I had a back-order AT-X that I just picked up from my FFL. It shipped 7/2/22. When I got it the foam was retaped up with box tape, the butt pad was crusty white, the heavy trigger spring was installed, and it has a 21 AT serial number. The shop told me that their system ships out the oldest model first and that's why I got a 21. I've got a gen 1, and this is a gen 2 but I thought I was getting a 22 serial number. This on looks like it was their floor model and when their newest models came in, they sent me their old model and put the new new as their floor model. Sucks because I canceled my order from another vender and this morning, I confirmed with them and AI USA that all of their recent shipments were 22 serial numbers.

    Before we get into the serial number portion (who gives AF, it’s literally just an AT action). Only thing that would matter is, is it SFP, which it should be.

    So you got a Gen2 chassis? Should have a screw behind the bolt shroud.
    And that butt pad gets discolored, regardless

    If it don't shoot federal gold medal match, there is something wrong with the barrel. Either the 168 or 175gr ammo.

    That's how mine came also. I never paid attention to the SN though or cared. Since actions are made in England and imported and then put together with US parts I'd expect that process to take a long time as evident by AT-X timelines. Mine is a gen2.

    With the AT-X, when changing barrels back and forth between 6.5CM and .308 (both factory barrels), how important is it to always check head spacing?

    Um......as long you tighten the barrel down tight by hand or bump it up slightly with a wrench before torqing the action to the barrel, there will be no change as long you're using a consistent method every time.

    The biggest issue I have had is that I shoot suppressed and if I don't follow the torque spec on the bolt to tighten the barrel, it will loosen the barrel when I unthread my suppressor... I think the spec is like 50 in lbs or so. (49 I just checked).

    What bag rider?
    This is not directed at you specifically, but this question has literally been asked like 5 times per page in this thread… more or less every single picture that includes a bag rider will be one of:

    - AX (pictured above)
    - Bugholes or GTAC
    - DIY 3D printed

    Mine is not one of those.

    And where’s your option for sawtooth ?

    More or less = vast majority

    Yes there are others, but generally speaking if you need to ask about a bag rider, a search for any of those I posted will give you what you’re looking for.

    better question is how did you obtain that bag rider? More than 1 AI in your arsenal; or under the table money to a certain vendor...sportingservices.com - green just painted black??

    SO I really haven't been paying attention to the ATX. I thought I wouldn't have to have one if I ignored it.
    That is a great looking paint job. Much nicer to me than the blue. Did you have to unbond the action or is the ATX not glued in?
    The ATX is not bonded. It does not have the brass washers like the AT and AX. It bolts directly to the chassis.

    Is the ATX action different than the at/ax if it doesn't need washers?

    FWIW - Euro sent a note that the dark earth long bridge is back in stock. Looks like black and blue are in stock, as well as a bunch of short bridges.
