    Hi,

    That type of design was used by a couple different manufacturers back in 2010 era of the PSR testing.
    System slides/rides on those "recoil rails" and then you just push the platform back into battery (Fully forward) for the next shot.

    Sincerely,
    Theis

    Is there a better system available currently?

  • Hi,

    Machine, check fit, machine, check fit...

    This is just 1 of the quality processes we have in place to make sure final assembly and QA signs off on the entire system before anything gets shipped out to customers.

  • Looks good. I’m curious if that’s full speed?

    Hi,

    No it is not full speed, lol

    This DMU speedMaster is capable of 20k rpm with 46.9HP.

    Cutting that 7075 aluminum magwell insert was not even half speed but no point in pushing that tool since everything is on a legit production schedule as it is.

  • Hi,

    Guys are just chipping away to have first production batch of 10 Aspis receivers and chassis done by May 17th.

    Going to be nice once coated, assembled and listed for sale.

    Please send me a PM if interested in ordering so that we get correct barrel spec'd for your build.

    As previously mentioned the first few batches lead times will be dependent of customers barrel specifications. After the first few production batches we will have a better understanding of what barrels to have sitting on shelves waiting for our actions and chassis to marry them for ready right now, out the door business model.

    Sell the excess rifles & pistols you have in your safe & get one amazing super rifle.
    I've done that before and came out with a lot more than I thought I had.
    There's no such thing as excess rifles and pistols you can never have too many.

    What one? I'm thinking about Monero. From the time I first thought of it until it went from $250. to 356.

    I'm exceedingly wary of any Crypto from getting royally hosed by the lying, scamming FUCKS with Substratum or Sub. 10K. Gone. Poof.... like a fart in a windstorm. Imagine the rifle that would have gotten me. Making it worse that is was money from a small inheritance of a dear friend.
    Do you honestly think that the rothschilds are going to allow crypto to be successful ?

    I was never a seller... once I bought my first true quality rifle the rest just sat and got dusty.
    I have since paired down my safe and I am much happier with higher quality rifles

    long story short... sell the rifle you keep “for your friends”..it starts there.

    Also start dumping calibers.

    I’m ordering a hoplite in 300 norma

    when that shows up my 300 win mag (2) are going bye bye and I’ll sell the ammo too

    you don’t need 5 rifles in 4 calibers, if 3 of them are basically twins

    Probably for another thread but last week bough 5k in Doge, that went up to 30k and fell back down to 20k. Just bought some Safemoon and BitTorrent. If you put $100 in those 30 days ago you would have something like 60k today.

    Do you have any idea how many this means could hit the market? LOL. I have this little issue called OCD-rifle-ammo-hoarding
    It’s like when you see a pic with 15-20 AR’s, most of them “home built”

    tell them sell all that crap keep a shorty, the “sniper” and buy a knights

    Really the only reason I still have them all is I figured when the shit hits I could barter with them. But worse case scenario always seems to be only in my head... and I'm kind of sick of tripping over them all.. LOL
    If we’re down to bartering with rifles...not long until one of your customers who buys a rifle comes back with a “hard bargain”.

    Might not be the best plan...lol

    Hi,

    His virtual exhibition of range and "booth" talks as he did with AI; is what we see as the future of firearms marketing and we most definitely intend to take part in such.

    Sincerely,
    Theis
    I certainly want to see more of that from the industry.
    Glossy brochures don't compare with seeing a rifle getting a practical workout.
    Being a "hands on" learner, I get more from watching a demo, than looking at an advert.
    Hopefully we'll see a few here in Australia.👍

    Selling...I might start it off.
    Don’t need the sale to fund my hoplitebut I’m not using it.

    I have a DTA gen 2 covert or what ever the name is lol

    Short 308

    Thought it was going to be “fun” but not worth it. Prob sitting in safe for a year, easy.

    “give me your tired, “poors”, shot out, scratched up, dusty, not accurate bolt guns...” lol

    who’s with me!!!

    Not sure if you guys have shot one, but other than being short there is A LOT to be desired for that price

    I’m not talking PRS/competition either

    I should probably start selling at least one of my AIs and some other stuff as I have a funny feeling this is going to be a long and expensive journey for me, with many Greek names shoving other things out of my safe over the next couple years.

    You know first you get the remover of Long Range problems and it's really cool.
    Then next thing you know the remover of ELR problems is available and well, you can't not have it...
    Then probably somewhere along the way there will be this cute handy little remover of close up problems and well...
    Then comes super pressure ammo for all the above with new barrels sporting Greek names...

    Before you know it, your whole safe has been taken over by Greek names...

    Keep 2 AI

    One long and one short action

    and maybe the AXMC, because it was the flagship

    You don’t need 2 short action AI since the action has been the same forever by now

    yeah little Greek invasion coming soon lol

    My thinking is to keep the original AW 2.0 in .308 (since that's like the gun I can bet my life and the lives of others on for a cold bore shot), as well as the AXMC (since I have a bunch of barrels for it) and then sell off the AWSM 2.0 in .338LM next year to fund a PHALANX when those start being produced, so the ASPIS I'll get this year, will have a big brother to hang out with.
