    If a Bix gets dirty it can hang fire or not fire. The bearings inside have to be clean to release. Top lever to cocking piece engagement is another issue but that would be an issue from day one. If you have to leave a screw loose you need to have you smith look at it or send it back for repair.

    Didn't have to leave it loose, retightened the screws without over torqueing them and everything has been fine for two years.

    I have a bunch of these actions on the way to the shop. I will do a detailed write up about how this long range version came to be, the design changes made compared to the original and will touch on what makes it an action to consider. Im busy but its coming.

    Projected cost and availability?

    The action is stainless steel. Any option for chrome moly steel? Is there even any benefit of stainless vs chrome moly?

    Thank you.

    I said I would update this thread, its still winter here so more results will come. I had 6 of these actions in the shop. I have measured them all, they were consistently as straight as actions get. Surprisingly good actually. I am starting to get more feed back from SN001. So far 2 barrels and 3 different bullets and all have shot zeros. This ones coming out of the gate as good as I have ever seen, I am expecting to see some impressive stuff from it this season. Here is a 300 yard target from one barrel with one bullet, look at the poi stability over the wide range of powder charges.

    There is no doubt I see less tendency to climb the target/go vertical with this action, or the original version from reports and targets I get.
