I've only been around halfa dozen or so Mel Rimfires and they are fhuqking dismal in feed/function/deformation. Hint.

Flipside. Hint.



Though in fairness,I've only (4) Vudoo's which are fhuqking flawless and a Dozen plus Annie 54's,which also pale in feed/function. Hint...................

I too would be interested in the 6mm ARC. I have a mini Howa 6.5 Grendel stripped action to convert, but an off the shelf option would be fantastic.

I'd be interested in knowing if the stocks will be made the same way and whether the barrels will be full-length bedded.

Good questions and I’d hope nothing will change. A NULA without that stock design/manufacturing isn’t the same gun.

I’d also hope the left handed versions will continue?

Will the pricing be similar, higher or lower...or is it too early to say at this stage?

For now we've left retail the same. We will sell through dist/dealer/retail so street price will probably be less. That said, we hope to be able to lower the retail once we know our costs. We will be mfg the actions and barrels in much larger qty than Melvin has in the past on high efficiency CNC/EDM machines so this should lower costs.

All current orders have been turned over to WC to fill with the exception of 11 or so guns that Melvin already had in process at the time of the sale.

Bill thanks for answering my questions. After you have been producing these rifles for a little while, besides the option of a stainless steel action (even though I prefer a chrome-moly action and stainless barrel) another option may be a hinged floor-plate design. Although this would add a few ounces, the rifles would still be extremely light. But as I said, only as an option to the blind internal magazine. Thank you.

Mr. Wilson how much are you geusstimating a base line mod 20 in .308 will cost once you get up and running efficently production wise.
Prices on them I have surfed on the web are outrageous right now honestly.

I think a "Campfire Special" build and group order would be a great way to kick things off!
Especially when the stainless actions are ready for production!
