I bought a Tac Ops, and have a 260 barrel for my AIAX, so this beauty is on the block. I bought it as an SPS-V in 308 back in 2008 and had it completely redone by Dave Wells at Wells Custom in Nicholson, PA in 2015.
<750rds on this barrel, <2000 on the action.

527 on current barrel. There were <1000 on the prior barrel (original 308 Dave set back & rechambered into a <800yd hammer - wanted 1000+ so went 260). NSWC Crane Weapon Record Book goes with the rifle, of course.

11/16-24 threads on the Ops Inc 3rd Model profile (note the 20deg bevel):
7107763


As stated, the thread protector doesn't profile with the barrel, but I normally have the can or brake on it anyway:

Dave does an awesome job timing the bolt/handle and welding the handle:

Free bump for a nice stick.

Dave has built me a half dozen precision rifles, everyone of them shoots bugholes.
Thank you. This rifle is certainly no exception. The work he did setting back and rechambering the original 308 barrel made it an amazing shooter also.

In response to a couple questions, here are pics of the feedramp inlet. This allows use of the full length of the magazines (AICS= 2.865", Alpha= 2.945") when you start chasing the lands:

And if you want a custom CZ TacSport, let me know ;-)

What’s the distance from the muzzle thread to the taper for the can?

Here is Ron Allen's drawing for the muzzle threads for the Ops Inc 3rd Model. This rifle follows this drawing to a "T". Since it's a heavy Palma profile, the barrel mic's out to 0.940" at the back end of the taper.

As it sits now it is 15.25 lbs. If you want the scope (Ares ETR) and rings (Badger USMC 306-75 KG Gunkote OD Green), add $1200 (includes Switchview and Vortex Defender caps). $125 more gets the bipod (Atlas BT10-LW17). Scope/rings and bipod not separately for sale, only with the rifle.
