To all.........keep the photos coming gents.....looking great 🤩

Bring me up to speed please on a few things:

1. Do AXSR mags fit AXMC? (If so I'm assuming this deletes AXMC mag adapter?)

2. What's the status of any functional .223/5.56 conversion?

3. Has anyone played with .37XC or .41XC? (I may ask in ELR forum too in case they don't visit here much)
  1. Yes they fit the AXMC. AI never released a magazine adapter for left handed AXMCs. This was what lefties have been waiting for to allow us to shoot short action cartridges through the long action
  2. Don't know anything about a conversion for .223 from AI.
  3. I have discussed 37XC with a couple of people. I am still considering doing so. It is a great cartridge

They do not offer a 223 conversion for The AXMC. Or at least not yet

Recently purchased an AI and was able to take it out for the second time today. I have two questions.

1. (See first picture) What is this black grease/oily residue? It looks like it’s coming from the bolt? I wiped it a little bit so that’s why it looks smeared.

2. The bipod stud adaptor came loose. I tried to tighten it up with the supplied 4mm hex key in the buttstock but it seemed just barely oversized? It barely fit in the top portion, but didn’t seat all the way and I felt like I was stripping it. I tested the 4mm key on the other screws on the pic rail and qd rail adaptors and it went in securely. Is it a different size? Should I use loctite to prevent this from happening again? Any specific torque spec? After tightening as best I could I was able to shoot my first 5 round group with it. (Second pic)

Thanks for the help!

Don't use loctite on the accessory screws. First I'd remove one of the other pic rails, and steal the screws from it and swap them on your bipod adapter. Chances are it's simply an out of spec screw. If that doesn't fix it give AINA a call (or wherever you bought it from).

Mounted a new ZCO527 on Spuhr QDP-6002 and recently added the RRS plate. I’m feeling like my AXMC is finally “done” for the time being except for minor tweaks here and there.

You know you’re happy with your rifle when all these new AXSR photos aren’t making you flinch. Just need that 308 mag to come in :p

Totally agree!

Our rifles are twins other than mine is left handed...

awesome, glad to hear! How did you like the action? Feeding, bolt throw etc. Thanks for sharing 🇺🇸
It is damn nice, the 300NM is very manageable not much more recoil than my .308 and it hits with authority. Initial groups at 200 were around ..75 with factory Berger ammo.
I loaded up some 215 Bergers on top of H1000 and it
Hammers.

Sorry, I’m new here. Couldn’t figure out how to type and post a pic in the same post lol. Love this forum. Just got my scope mounted and thought to contribute because everyone loves pics right?. Still waiting for my bipod

Nice! What color is this??? Elite sand or DE? PB? What moa Spuhr is that?

I wish I could attend that shoot that weekend but I’ve got a divorce trial on the 15th and will be prepping that weekend. Thanks for inviting me. Utah gun guys are always cool like that.

So jealous of everyone here shooting so much! Finally get to take my AXMC out this weekend and am taking a few days off work next week to make up for lost range time.

I just notice something that worries me about my AXSR, that I can pull the trigger and it will drop the firing pin with the bolt not fully closed.

Can someone with an AXSR try this and see if they are seeing the same issue.

@Kidster A lot of weapon systems do that. I first saw it out of a someone's Savage, I then thought how unsafe that can be, and I checked to see if my AX did that as well soon after handling his rifle, and sure as s* did the same thing too

I also thought this would be unsafe but thanks for the info.
