    I run an Accuracy International AW. 

    One of, if not THE, best “Working Rifle” platforms every made.

    What makes the AI a better working platform as opposed to a more traditional stock with maybe a dbm setup.
    Apparently free thought is punished, and conformity is required, while peckerless cowards run the show.

    The action (on my rifle at least) is epoxied to the block. Making the receiver and the full length bedding block one complete unit. Even without the side “skins” I can shoot and operate the rifle. 

    Now, mine is obviously more modern that the original in that video. And, there are even more updated versions than mine now. 

    But, the tolerances held in building these rifles are so tight, that I can take any part of my rifle and put it on another of same model and fire the gun without issue. Bolt, barrel, trigger, etc. 

    On top of that, I can be in BFE, wrap my barrel around a fence post, get a new barrel from AI sent to me, and instal it in the field.......Charlie Mike. 

    Same with a bolt. 

    It is user maintainable, field maintainable, and parts interchange capable, durable, accurate, and built like a working rifle should be. 

    I have shot a lot of different rifles. None better than an AI for the type of work it’s designed to do. 

    I do like my Surgeon, too. But it ain’t better built than my AI.

    I have never worked a smoother action than my AI. 

    Not one.

    Real life user says a lot about a rifle compared to take it to the range, fire 10 or 12 rounds and become a subject matter expert type. Real good info
