    I like this .223 bolt deal, tell me more.
    @trophyhunter came out with it first and sold the design to Bugholes. Bugholes was going to offer them to the public, but decided to stand down because AI is supposed to do it soon and bugholes is to busy apparently

    For you guys who have enough machinist knowledge.......

    Could a .223 bolt be made for an axmc or axsr?

    I know this is a pipedream ........but it's a dream I've always had (even put together some builds in my head and on paper before that actually will shoot. 223 through .338LM.)

    With the new David Tubb XC calibers.........an AXMC or AXSR setup and a .223 bolt.......shooting .223 through. 37XC or even .41XC could be done off ONE rifle.

    Yes I realize this doesn't appeal to everyone......and trust me just with the small amount of rifles and suppressors I have so far....if money wasn't an issue I'd have a rifle in every caliber I wanted with whatever optic I wanted and a suppressor on every one......zeroed and ready to rock and roll.

    However having the same chassis, same trigger and same optic with same cheek weld EVERY time is VERY appealing to me.

    Those who think this could be done please chime in😊

    Guys, we are moving forward on this. We have been struggling keeping up with parts sales and Gunsmithing since last fall, considering our new current market circumstances.
    So if you could be patient, we will have something to deliver.
    I've told a few guys we were laying off the project due to a recent AI "announcement", but I've never gotten anywhere sitting around waiting for someone else to do something. So we are moving forward...

    I just got my Sawtooth AI handgrip. It fits and looks awesome. Only thing I would have liked different is if the bolts holding it on were 4mm like all the other bolts on the gun.

    Eh. Wonder what type of screws are being used on that Spuhr and the Quiver? 🤔 Let alone the ones on the skins...

    Maybe. I have one and have and have shot a 2 day in stone dusty WV and had 0 issues. But in the off chance I do, the beauty of and AI is, I have the stock trigger in my pack.
    That’s what’s making me hesitate with purchasing the AXSR. That it’s comp trigger-esque and doesn’t take the OG trigger.

    I’m hoping to hear more about the AXSR trigger and its reliability. I know lowlight had mentioned they’d have a video talking about triggers, but haven’t seen anything yet.

    PRB did a review of the AXSR and it was awesome, but one of the negatives was trigger reliability (but it might have been with a beta testing spring set?):

    “...The biggest thing is I ran into issues with the trigger during the match. We literally measured wind gusts at 50 and even 60 mph at the match, which means dust and sand got in the tiniest places. Towards the end of day 1 of the match, I would occasionally close the bolt and the rifle wouldn’t cock the firing pin back. When that happened, I’d go to pull the trigger and it just felt mushy and nothing would happen....

    I asked Scott if it was the standard trigger or competition trigger, and he said it was their competition trigger, but it had a different spring set that they were trying out. So I guess it was a “custom” trigger that I was beta testing! 😉 Scott still was surprised to hear about my issues and said he was anxious to get the rifle back and take a closer look for himself...”

    I have an AXSA and am trying to decide on an AXSR.

    I'm definitely not bashing the Comp trigger. I like mine, don't love it, but like it enough to keep using it. I was just sharing an experience I had with mine. I got it cleaned out with some contact cleaner and going to throw back into the rifle soon. Until then, I'll just run with the factory trigger.

    No issues with my comp trigger, it’s set super light single stage also. Come to think of it, I’ve never cleaned it. Always run in an MC shooting 300wm,6.5prc and 300prc

    Too easy. Head to Ace Hardware and snag some 4mm bolts and replace em.

    That mount came out nice though.
