Zermatt Arms (Bighorn Arms) Orgin action
Zermatt Arms who makes Bighorn Arms actions announced a new sub $1,000 Action today. (Full MSRP will be $825)
Zermatt Arms, Inc. is happy to announce The ORIGIN action!
The ORIGIN action by ZAI includes some major features from ZAI’s Bighorn line of actions such as:
– pinned rail
– fluted bolt body
– floating and interchangeable bolt head
– controlled round feed
– fully enclosed mechanical ejector
– Remington style feed lips
New features for the ORIGIN are:
– pinned recoil lug
– swept bolt handle
– DLC coated bolt heads
– Salt bath nitride receiver and bolt body
Standard compatibility options include but are not limited to:
– Savage small shank pre-fit barrels
– Remington Model 700 inlet stocks and chassis
– Remington Model 700 aftermarket triggers
– Hinged floor plate internal box magazines
– AICS style detached box magazines (not AW)
– All of Bighorn Arms bolt knobs (5 options)
Seems to me like it’s a cheaper Bighorn TL3, they even say the heads are interchangeable with The TL3.
With these sub $1000 actions hitting the market it really should make getting a custom much easier for the masses. This one with Savage small shank barrels would be an easy button for getting a fairly decent rifle.
$375 Bravo Chassis
Just under $2k for a rifle.
