Ridgeline and Titanium actions will soon be introduced

We have an Alpine Magnum action made in Titanium ready to send out to be PVD treated.  The action looks good and I am sure will be a hit.  Right now introductory pricing will be $1900.0 for Alpine and Alpine Magnum in Ti and $1995.00 for Timberline and Timberline Magnum in Ti.  Current delivery is about 20 weeks and we will commence taking orders about 11/21/16.  We plan to test fire the prototype after PVD treatment to test for reliable function and cycling prior to accepting any orders.

We have finally located a supplier willing to make the magazine boxes for the Ridgeline actions. we are hoping the test boxes arrive soon along with the custom Obendorf style drop floor plates.  The actions will be sold complete with the bottom metal.  Keep watch here for updates.

New Product—Borden Rimrock BRM Right Bolt left Port Bottom eject

Borden Rimrock BRM Right Bolt Left Port receiver with bottom ejection port

_81A7487

Please excuse the fact that I failed to clean the dust and grease from the bolt prior to taking the picture of the bolt nose and extractor 🙂

_81A7490At the continued encouragement of Greg Taylor and Alex Wheeler we have developed a bottom eject model receiver for our BRM and BRMXD line of actions.  the hold up has been having a suitable extractor.  We did not wish to use a Remington style extractor due to the flat combined with coned nose on bolt that would make the model have a unique breaching system from our other actions. For many years I have been interested in using a internal hook extractor that does not require breaching the outer diameter of the bolt nose. the one we have developed is not unique to us but it has been difficult to find a screw machine shop willing to produce it. So, we decided to produce them here on our Hardinge CNC Chucker–not a very efficient way to make them-but a necessary way in order to get them made to make this model available. One of the key advantages to the bottom eject model is that it eliminates the need for a plunger ejector which made bolt closing simpler.

Here is a short video of demonstration of how one works. We will be accepting orders for RBLPBP BRM and BRMXD beginning August 1, 2016

New Barrel Vise for Hunting Rifles

hunting_bvise

We will soon have barrel vises built per the above drawing for sale.  The vises are primarily intended to be used to remove barrels from our barreled actions that have common hunting tapers and a 1.2 inch diameter cylinder just ahead of the action.  The vise utilizes bushings to grip the barrel.  At first we will only have bushings for 1.2 and 1.25 inch cylinder diameters.  We may later offer bushings with taper to match the common berets taper barrels.

We will be establishing the selling price over the next two to three weeks.

Titanium Here We Come

We have been working for a while here on designing and producing some Titanium actions.  It is not one of my favorite materials to work with and it has its limitations in an action application.  But there are many that want the weight savings and are willing to put up with some of the disadvantages of having a Titanium action body.  The additional stretch of Ti versus Chrome Moly and Stainless Steel can make bolt opening more difficult.

 

Here are two slugs that are the throw away portion of the center of the action after we have EDM cut the bolt bore and raceways.  The slug on left is Ti and the slug on right is 416 SS.  The Ti slug weighs about 7 ounces and the 416 SS slug weighs 13.5 ounces.  It will be a few weeks before we have pictures of the first ti short action. We have not figured out pricing on the Ti models yet.
