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.

    $900 action
    $350-$400 barrel
    $120 Timney
    $375 Bravo Chassis

    Just under $2k for a rifle.
