Interesting new action from BAT



  • neuvo1602.jpg

    Sure is a different looking critter! I'm a big fan of BAT actions. They have the best bolt lift ergo's I've ever experienced on a rifle. This one here looks to be aimed directly at benchrest shooters, but innovation is innovation.

    A little blurb from their announcement:

    The Neuvo is the next stage in the world of extreme accuracy. This action is the result of more than half a century of experience in rifle building, gunsmithing, target shooting and high-end machining. Bullet Central, Dwight Scott and BAT Machine teamed up to develop this receiver. The Neuvo encompasses time-proven functionality with a host of brand new features. The new action includes a wide-body two-lug bolt, horizontal locking lugs and a totally redesigned fire control. The Neuvo is manufactured by BAT Machine in the U.S. and available at Bullet Central.



  • Yet to find a better bolt lift than a Bat VR.



  • What do you mean by a better bolt lift? Is it really smooth? Does it distribute the bolt cocking force in a different way? I'm just learning about custom actions and I'm curious.

    Smooth yes, but also light and the rest of the bolt throw sequence doesn't bind or hitch so that you do not disrupt NPA while cycling the bolt. BAT is basically the reigning champion regarding bolt lift. There is much more to an action, but this specific aspect is of paramount importance for accurate follow up shots.



  • I see. Thanks.
