Someone say Evo???

I have one and have/had most of the popular options I.e Defiance, Impact, Stiller, Tuebor, Pierce, Lone Peak etc and the Evo gives up nothing that I can see in a SA.

They should put blueprinted 700’s into the has been file unless a guy has sentimental attachment to his 700.

My current Evo is TI but the SS versions are damn nice and for the price have no equal and I will own more.5093C4F2-5A2E-4135-80CD-6D0072BD49A8.jpeg

Nobody cares about ur dead critters.


Back to the evo.

Can I get a shouldered prefit? If so who’s spinning them? It’s still no nut November yeah?

Unless ur running the 6.5 bitch cat.. then you gotta run an extra nut. For the weight.

My gut says they are not likely to come back. The source of material that was used for these in order to meet that price point is now extinct.

If they ever do come back it will be at much higher prices.

Were they still planning to update the tennon/threads to accept remage style bbls? (Without the -.01"? Or something like that?)

It's entirely possible. I have no insider info on their inventory nor plans for head spacing.

I just happen to know where the material to make these came from due to conversations with industry insiders at events. Once they exhaust inventory finding the same price again isn't likely to happen as it was clearance material from a producer that was closing their doors.

The material cost increase can't be too terribly much - $ 10- $ 20 per unit, unless they got the prior bar stock at scrap prices.
There's not that much steel in a short action Rem 700 receiver.

Exactly... most of the cost is in the machining.

I'm still hoping for a long action but I might try a different action, hell mine is still in the box as I have other projects to complete first. That said I wouldn't be surprised to see the cost goes up by 10% but it will still be a great price for the feature set.

I reached out on 2/4 and was told end of month for availability.

I'm looking forward to getting a hold of one of these.

I know I'm more than likely in the minority, but I actually like the simplicity of it: like a better made already-trued/blueprinted R700 with a real extractor and threaded knob. I'm fine with push-feed and a single boltface too. I don't need any fancy controlled-round-feed or changeable boltface I'll never use.

Though I DO hope they go with Savage threads like the Origin and Nucleus, and hope their tolerances are close enough to support shouldered prefits.

Has anyone actually seen/owned a remage compatible EVO SS? Or is that just a thing that exists in the ether?

I'm trying to get a drawing released to see what it would take for prefits, but so far I'm just really impressed with this action. The additional surface on the lug makes it comparable to any integrated lug action.

Nice rifle, seems a little odd that it is topped with an entry level chinese optic.
A range report on the rifle and optic combo would be nice, especially if you are using it in comps.
I've actually put my DMR2 PRO on it since it has a bigger eyebox. That being said the Arken is a fantastic scope for the money and uses true ED glass. I would put it up against a DMRII any day(not the pro). I've used the arken in comps and it tracks extremely accurately with no issues at all. I will say that the center dot is very small and if you're not used to it can get lost pretty easily.

This rifle combo is my new comp setup. Macbro SS, foundation, proof, elf trigger, APA little bastard. It shoots 1/2 moa with Berger 109s and feels amazing to shoot. An interesting note about the action/bolt is that the elf trigger can go safely down to 8 oz, I have tried this trigger in a few different actions and it normally becomes unsafe a hair over 1 lb.

This foundation was actually cut for an impact. Had to take out just a little bit of material for the hanger to make it fit but otherwise no issues. The injection port on the impact is actually different than this one but luckily in the right direction so I didn't have to cut it larger. A defiance tactical will not fit in this foundation stock since the bolt sweep hits and you can't close the bolt

I loathe a swept bolt handle, never understood defiance or the origin on this one. I never shoot my origin for this reason? Just a personal thing I guess.
