    No such thing as too much ammunition or toilet paper...

    I want to first say that I’m a fan of MRA. But after watching the video I can’t understand why I would want a Frankenstein bolt gun that looks like an AR. It does not do anything my bolt gun can’t and it’s $800 without barrel, bolt and trigger. Based on looks alone it will prob get Prohib. just like some shotguns that were added later. Plinking I would still choose a N/R semi and hunting isn’t an option with this with 12” barrel with the anemic 223. Although it looks nice I see no advantage over a good bolt gun. Maple Ridge I beg you build a bolt gun! I know it would be fantastic We love your work.
    I’ll be hunting with my .450 bushmaster Renegade this fall...so I would say it is very much an option. And coming in hopefully under 6 lbs, it should be a fair bit lighter than any of my bolt guns. Combine that with the fact that I can make use of my AR15 parts, and I can’t understand why some don’t see the point of this rifle.

    And as for getting prohibited. It’s a not a semi auto, and it cannot be converted to one. If this gets prohibited, we’re all effed and we can say goodbye to our bolt guns too.

    Also, we are making Renegade barrels with a taper profile and no gas journal or gas port specific for straight pull rifles.
    Will these be available at the same time as the receivers?

    Respectfully I must strongly disagree with you sir!!

    There are many of us that do not want to wait for/or retain the services of a gunsmith or machinist and prefer to be able to assemble and work on these rifles ourselves.

    I am very familiar with the AR style of platform and have all the hand tools and vice blocks to work on it myself.

    If I have to purchase additional tools, that is a small price to pay for the convenience and independence it affords me!!

    This is a modular platform and customization along with caliber and barrel length changes are easy and only take a few moments to do.

    Heck, as there is no requirement for gas port/gas tube/BCG alignment the changes should take even less time!!

    Further this receiver set is large enough to support cartridges like the 224 Valkyrie that will get you shooting out to 1,000 M as long as you do your part!!

    However there are plans for the Large Frame version, and I am very much looking forward to those as well!!

    The magazine system has had over 5 decades of testing, is proven, reliable with the mags themselves being inexpensive and plentiful!! All an important consideration.

    Another thing to consider is as a Left handed shooter I have always wanted a bolt style gun that was Left hand bolt, right hand ejection port. A configuration that will cost several thousand dollars in a bolt action, and this one is straight pull with a forward assist spring for a little over $800 complete cost!!

    As for parts, I have lots due to many of my favorite rifles and carbines becoming prohibited!! However the finical hit has been softened by the ability to make parts from those prohibited rifles useful.

    And lets face it, a short barreled None-Restricted Carbine is just straight out cool AND desirable.

    As for characterization of said rifles using the word "Frankenstein" and by innuendo indicating that such a rifle is made of mis-matched parts I must strongly disagree with you.

    I carefully choose all my parts for both form, function and fit. Feel free to talk to anyone that has shot one of my rifles or carbines to confirm this!!

    So in closing, just because you don't seem to see the "Need for this" doesn't mean there isn't !! I for one am very much looking forward to using this set to build a None-Restricted 224 Valkyrie Marksman rifle!!

    With respect

    AbH

    Friendly bump, curious about those component weights and if any function testing has been done with 7.62x39 barrels?

    Curious whether running a left-side bolt on this gun might make sense even for a right-hand shooter. Not having to re-establish the trigger-hand grip would be helpful, and whether the front end is supported on a bipod or bag, or it's a short configuration with the balance point close enough to the pistol grip it seems that moving the left hand to the bolt and back to steady the rifle might mean less break in concentration. This certainly isn't my beloved Lee Enfield! So probably best not pretend that it's that, or an AR, or anything else it isn't.

    Is there any consensus on bolt side among the folk who have fired the prototypes?
