This just in:

Responding to recent events on Earth, God, the omnipotent creator-deity worshipped by billions and billions of followers of various faiths for many millennia, angrily clarified His longtime stance on color of rifles.

“Look, I don’t know, maybe I haven’t made myself completely clear, so for the record, here it is again,” said the Lord, His divine face betraying more than a little emotion during a press conference near the site of @Krob95 ’s new ATX.

“Somehow, people keep coming up with the idea that I want them to paint their rifles other colors than Sage Green. Well, I don’t. And to be honest, I’m really getting sick and tired of it. Get it straight. Not only do I not want anybody to paint their rifle some weak-sauce color named Elite Sand or the abominable ‘Black’ Multicam, but I am specifically commanding you to only use the color of the lush and verdant Earth that I your Lord God created for you.”

“That is all.”

    Quoting this for posterity, and because you really have a way with words. Starting to make me think maybe I'll need a sage green MC one day 😂

    Aw shit! Now I won’t be able to sleep. Gonna be thinking all night how black multi-cam will look like on a AX too. Nice rifle man!
    Thanks man! It ain't no elite sand but I like it a lot. Very subtle and extremely well done.

    Ps, you should do it

    I found out the guy that did the cerakote. His name is Sean, his shop is Sovereign Arms in Denver. It's who Fritz uses for anything that needs cerakote, including my ATX.
    Thanks! Just hit post the same minute you answered my question

    I’ve thought a bunch about that shortbus guy painting a rifle of mine flecktarn (now that’s a master race thing, like, an actual master race thing) or that cool M40 sniper pattern or maybe a winter mcmillian molded-in look.

    And then God Almighty, Our Lord and Heavenly Father, whispers sage advice to me in the crystalline silence of the night and Green the AI stays.

    Maybe the W3 Rem…

    Thumbhole Elite Sand 👌

    Superb job by Mark at FMJ Firearms in the UK.

    New Scope arrives tomorrow. Don't judge me but its a second hand Vortex Razor HD Gen 2... I was looking at Nightforce ATCARs but I just can't stretch that far and justifying it to the wife was difficult enough as it is.

    Why did AI drop the Elite Sand?

    Demand to high?

    Does this make my AXSR in Elite Sand more valuable? :unsure:

    To many were being chambered in 6.5 CM. AI realized tampon sales were getting out of control with the Elite sand/6.5 combo and eventually gave in to the downfall.

    They went back to green AI’s chambered in 308 after purchasing more stock in beer and beef jerky sales which were sure to skyrocket after the transition

    It’s what concrete working, bow hunting, bench pressing animals around the world demanded

    If you pass an elite sand owner speak softly. If they own the 6.5 they’re likely to retreat to their “safe place”. Best to just let them be as they need to be alone with their thoughts

    Only those that have to justify themselves to others, are afraid to own a 6.5.

    I just got my new ATX in today. The bolt is quite surprisingly hard to close on an empty chamber. With the safety in the middle position it closes like butter. But with the safety forward it is hard enough to close that I think there is something wrong with the bolt. I took the shroud off and everything seems lubed well. I added some grease but it’s still extremely hard to close. Is this normal? Any ideas? I’ll call milehigh Monday anyways.
    Thank you.

    Ain't shit wrong with it. Just run it hard and fast. It'll break in. Oil the contact points between the bolt and receiver.

    So a thumbhole 260 Arctic Warfare in multicam is undesirable and should be hidden away for no one to ever shoot or see?
    As soon as the words "arctic warfare" and "thumbhole" are involved with the AI it automatically wins everything. However if "Vortex" is attached to either of those it negates one of the other, questionable and opens the user to psychiatric evaluation.


    This is actually my favorite AI....I think I stole this from someone here when I was trying to get ideas for my AT.

    Too difficult to match parts and keep cerakote consistent in batches. I know I've had at least 5 different variations of Elite Sand. Here is one of the most notable.. green barrel on left is original ES from 19-20 guns. Barrel on right is from 22 guns. And a whole lot of in between. Thread protectors on the Black barrels are also ES.

    Demand is there. Just too many issues with Cerakote and parts.

    Yes, this means your rifle just went up 3x in value. Maybe more.. 😆
