The match ammo we ran was 185 grain.

Was that the 182 your talking about?

We made it for 7n14... but tuned it to run up to 185 ..

My mistake..

And somewhat standard 147/148 gr surplus would be ill-advised correct?
I'm not saying it won't run on it..I'm just saying it's not gonna give ya close to match grade accuracy.
The surplus ball we used got about 2 MOA.

But let me ask you this?

If you bought a sports car and its asking for 92 or 93 octane... would you still use 87 just because to save 10 cents a gallon?
To save ..what?

2 bucks on gas?

I'm not gonna browbeat anyone for using what they got...
I just won't guarantee match grade accuracy.

Tornado Technologies of Portland Oregon? I’m trying to pick up the good vibrations but funneling these through the left coast gives me the heebee-geebees.

I'm digging the polymer with the option of the OG flashhider. With the increased thickness of the barrel portion under the handguards, will it be hard or troublesome to 'fit' surplus wood handguards to the rifle?
It will be a smit tight of a fit but it will work.

Ohhh good! Up to 185 is gravy. Thank you so much! The 182 was PPU match, but since its up to 185 theres a ton to pick from. If I had the coin to spare Id be in for an AMD65.

This is the polymer version setup for LEO MIL.
But we can send the OG FH.

We shall see..

We can't install it ...

But if a customer end user wants it..

Tornado can install.

Some minor things to share.

The innards are thicker a tiny bit on the receiver section.
Barrel section under the hand guards is thicker also...
Spring is a heavier recoil rated spring so if you want your daughter to reload it ..she may have difficulty.
We made it in conjunction with the recoil adjustment system.
Another option is another hole for suppressor usage..
We can have that installed if needed.
Barrel twist is different also...and gun won't be happy with anything less than 150...it will run fine to 180 but nothing over.

A tiny tidbit is we experimented with a 6.5 CM.

When I head back...if the market is their ..we can make a small limited run.
But magazines is the biggest issue and we still need to retool for it as we don't have anymore.

Both models are awesome! That wood looks beautiful. The Polymer version is definitely my favorite!

Yep, trust me I'm with you. Just wanted to make sure I understood exactly what you were saying/advertising since so much of the 54r falls just short of the 150gr. mark. Very anxiously awaiting the next steps. At this point, when do you think the first 100 rifles will be allocated and posters notified for options/billing/FFL, etc?

ETA;

When we will know what the final cost is going to be and how much options(OG flashhider, additional mags, etc) will also cost?

Great news.

Well, if we have options now on the furniture, I'm placing dibs on a poly set. :D

I will announce it but it will likely be an email and call and the final price depends on the excise tax and other variables but like I said..the target is 4000 to max. 4500..

It will include a loot box and we are making more.

We have over 200 now and more will be made.
