It is bead blasted stainless. I should have mentioned it in the video. It is not an option from Defiance. They offer polished stainless or Nitride. I hate shiny and did not want to wait for a nitrided.It's my next action for sure!
What finish is that on the action in the video?
Is it an option offered from defiance?
My favorite stock is the non adjustable magnus. My second is the Clymr. My third is the Allterra carbon. The Allterra will be the lightest.Great video, much appreciated. Just wondering what stock options you have found work well with the AntiX. I’m in the process of building a 7Saum and my head is spinning with the amount of lightweight options. I have experience with Manners, McMillan as well as a Gunwerks in a Magnus but have been looking at going a bit lighter. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
I wanted to love it but I just can't get there. I love lightweight for most of my hunts but in this case for me the GA hunter is worth the weight. I would like to shoot an ultralight. It may be a great compromise. I have had my hands on one but you really need to shoot it to get a real "feel".Ryan -
Thanks for the review! I ordered a custom rifle with the AnTi action a couple months ago. I researched as much as I could find at the time and placed my order. The advantages of the light weight are obvious, but your coverage of the feel of the bolt confirmed what I had suspected. Thanks again for taking the time for the review.
This is an awesome review. I have been considering a very similar build. questions.
1: Will this action drop into the Gunwerks Clymr or Magnus stocks?
2: Does anyone have any knowledge of or experience with Hells Canyon Armory Carbon wrapped barrels?
3: You mentioned a Christensen barrel. Can you get a pre-fit Christensen for this action?
Thanks for the info!
I did not mention it. I have started taking them for granted as I would not use and action without one. Thanks for pointing that out!
Integral recoil lugs offer a few very desirable traits. For one when changing a barrel you don't have to pin the recoil lug, or worry about alignment fitting perfectly back into your bedded lug area of the stock. Another would be an integral lug area of the action can be threaded to offer more barrel threads to the tenon and it now becomes more than just an alignment lug. With the growing popularity of "Pre Fit" barrels, these can be very desirable options.So why the integral recoil lug preference? You like the Fierce Rival and everyone on here loves CA and neither have an integral recoil lug. Can you actual the feel the difference when firing or do you think it's accuracy related?
That settled it for me. I was on the fence between the GA Hunter and the AnTi x, but the AnTi didn’t have an option for a 3 position safety. It’s not a big deal (hence why I was on the fence) but that’s my safety of choice from all my years with an M70. Plus the actions with those come with a triggertech trigger pre timed. I liked the AnTi for its guaranteed headspace, but since I’m going to have to send the action in to either Defensive Edge or Allen Precision rifles to get the barrel fitted/chambered anyways, I might as well get the better feeling action.I wanted to love it but I just can't get there.
